Exfoliation is an essential step in a skincare routine. If you haven’t added it as part of your beauty routine, you need to do so ASAP!
A good scrub helps eliminate dead skin cells, cleans pores and lifts away dry and dead skin cells. This process gives your face a really beautiful glow. If you’re keen on adding an exfoliator to your skincare routine, we have a really simple DIY scrub that leaves your skin with a healthy glow and smells amazing too.
You will need:
Oats – acts as an amazing natural cleanser.
Rice – helps to even out skin texture by gently exfoliating it.
Strawberry powder – the salicylic acid in strawberry acts as a great exfoliator to refine your pores and make them appear smaller.
Pomegranate powder – antioxidants in pomegranate helps prevent skin damage, stimulates collagen production and keeps your skin looking youthful.
Bentonite clay – helps control excess sebum production, draws out toxins from your pores, tightens skin to keep it looking young and radiant.
How to prepare:
Step 01: Blend the oats and rice together until they form a slightly coarse powder
Step 02: Pour into a glass mixing bowl
Step 03: Add the clay and the fruit powders to this mixture and blend well
Step 04: Store this mixture in an airtight container.
How to use: Take about one teaspoon of this mixture into a bowl and add a few drops of water. Mix everything together until it forms a creamy paste. Apply to face and neck using circular motions, then wash off with water.
