Face and Body Scrubs

I’ve been getting into natural home remedies lately, especially Ayurveda, which is an ancient Indian practice of healing. It is completely natural, non-invasive, and can be prepared at home and for very cheap!

I’ll be introducing few remedies on here, which I tried and they truly made a difference in my skin appearance. Let’s start with my favorite face and body scrubs, which are super easy and fast to make!

oatmeal

 

 

Oatmeal, almonds, honey and milk face scrub:

  1. Take ½ bowl of powdered oatmeal
  2. Add 6-7 crushed almonds
  3. Add 2 tbsp honey
  4. Add some milk to make a paste
  5. Mix well
  6. Apply this on the face
  7. Massage gently for 2 min
  8. Wash off with warm water

Sugar and olive oil body scrub:

  1. Take 6 tbsp sugar
  2. Add 5 tsp olive oil
  3. Mix well to make a thick paste
  4. Apply this on dry areas like elbows, knees and feet
  5. Apply this everywhere on wet body

Tips:

  • Clean the skin properly before exfoliating
  • Remove contact lenses before applying the scrub
  • Do not exfoliate excessively as it can lead to skin damage
  • Exfoliate 1-2 times a week

Why exfoliate? Because exfoliating your skin regularly will:

  • remove dead skin cells and improve your blood circulation;
  • prevent wrinkles; and
  • keep your skin looking fresh, smooth and soft.

So try it out and keep smiling :)
