Easy Home Made Scrubs for Glowing Skin!



Summer is done with, so its going to be a troublesome time for skin to cope with the climate change around. Especially with the climate getting cold it is much more necessary to start exfoliating your skin at regular intervals. So here we present to you some easy to make scrubs at home which you could use once or twice a week to keep your skin in tip-top shape. It's important year-round to exfoliate both your face and your body so go ahead and use these wonderful options.


Green Tea, Sugar and Honey Scrub:

Green tea is said to have anti-aging effects when applied to the skin. It reduces wrinkles and blemishes, and even repair scar tissue. For best results, use loose green tea and a tea ball or strainer, rather than using a bag of green tea. If you're using bagged green tea, go with plain tea, rather than flavored. This will give you a more concentrated result.


Pour a tablespoon or two of already prepared tea decoction into a bowl. Allow the tea to cool.Pour a tablespoon of sugar into the tea. Keep adding sugar until the mixture has a consistency that's gritty enough to scrub your skin, but still wet enough to apply easily. Stir in a tablespoon of honey. Make sure it's thoroughly mixed in. Honey has great moisturizing and antibacterial properties.


To store this scrub for later, put the mixture in a jar sealed with a lid. Keep it in a cool, dry place. It should last for several weeks.Apply the scrub to a freshly washed face. Rub the scrub all over your face, concentrating in spots that are dry. Use a wet washcloth to remove the scrub, and splash cold water over your face when you're finished.

Homemade sugar scrub:

Primarily composed of sugar, oil and essential oil (for fragrance), this scrub is exactly like the expensive scrubs available at spas and department stores, for a mere fraction of the cost. Even better, this scrub is simple to make, and works perfectly on hands, body and face and most definitely, feet.


For the preparation of this sugar scrub you would need the following: ½ cup sugar (white or brown), ¼ cup oil (olive, coconut or almond oil), essential oil (optional)


Mix ingredients together and you’re done. The sugar won’t dissolve in the oil and acts as an exfoliant. The oil moisturises your skin, leaving it silky smooth. And the essential oil is added for fragrance. Rub the scrub on your skin in a circular motion, then rinse completely. The scrub can be stored in an airtight container on your countertop and will last up to 2 months.


Honey and Cinnamon Scrub:

Clean your face with lukewarm water first then clean it with a soft cloth, then apply the following scrub. Put 1 1/4 teaspoons of cinnamon in a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of honey to the bowl. Stir until it forms a thick paste. Apply in circular motion. Wait for 30 minutes. Then rinse off with warm water. Pat dry gently so that the skin remains soft and smooth.


Cleansing cream and Sugar Scrub:

Wash your face thoroughly. Splash a little lukewarm water on your face, and use a soft and clean cloth to gently scrub it. You may also use some facial soap, whichever you prefer or is best for your skin. Put about a teaspoon of cleansing cream in the palm of your hand. This can be whatever you have on hand - just make sure it is creamy in texture. Pour 2 teaspoons of sugar over the cleansing cream. use both hands to mix the cleansing cream and sugar together, creating a gritty paste.


Use a fine grained sugar, rather than course or turbinado sugar. Larger grains can scratch your face. If you want to make extra scrub for later, mix the cleansing cream and the sugar in a bowl, adding the right amount of both ingredients to create a gritty texture. Place the mixture in a jar with a lid, and store on your bathroom shelf for next time. Apply the mixture to your face in a circular motion. pay close attention to the side of the nose and any little lines or dry spots. Be careful around the eyes. Then splash water on your face and pat dry with a soft cloth.


Oatmeal and Almond Scrub:

Oatmeal is incredibly soothing to skin, but it must be finely ground up to be used as a scrub. To make 1/2 cup of ground oatmeal for scrubs, use a blender, small food processor or coffee grinder. Grind 3/4 to 1 cup of oatmeal until it's has the consistency of flour.

The ingredients for this include 2 cups finely ground oatmeal, 1 cup ground almond, 1 cup sugar, few drops of your any essential oil which is optional, whole milk, at least half a cup.

Place all the dry ingredients in a Ziploc bag and shake it. Pour the ingredients in a bowl and then add a few tablespoons of milk until you have formed a paste. Just add drops of it until I get a perfect paste. Apply in a circular motion. Let it dry and then rinse. After that apply moisturiser to the skin.
