DIY FACE SCRUBS

The beauty industry is flooded with products that are said to improve your skin conditions and we all know that not all of them work. Most of these products contain plastics, irritating fragrances, parabens and other questionable products. These commercial products can do a whole of damage to your skin. However, Intent is here to give you the best DIY face scrubs for your skin concerns.

FACE SCRUBS FOR DRY SKIN

GREEN TEA AND HONEY SCRUB

Green tea acts as an anti-aging agent for your skin. It helps in reducing blemishes and wrinkles and also repairs scar tissue. Honey has great antibacterial and moisturising properties.

HOW TO:

Brew a mug of extra-strength loose green tea. Pour 1 tbsp of it into a bowl. Allow it to cool down for few minutes. Add 1 tbsp sugar into it. Stir well. Now pour 1 tbsp of honey to it. Mix thoroughly. Apply this scrub on your face. Scrub all over your face focusing on the spots that are dry. Remove it using a washcloth. Rinse your face with cold water.

FACE SCRUB FOR OILY SKIN

OATMEAL SCRUB

Oatmeal renders anti-inflammatory properties, honey helps in hydrating and moisturising the skin, yoghurt controls the sebum production.

HOW TO:

Mix 1 teaspoon of oats, organic honey and thick yoghurt into a bowl. Apply the scrub onto your face using circular motions and leave on face for 10 minutes. Rinse the scrub off using cold water.

FACE SCRUB FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN

BAKING SODA

Baking soda deeply exfoliates the skin, helping get rid of any dirt, grime, dead cells and excess sebum from the skin pores. Lemon juice acts as a natural astringent reducing sebum production.

HOW TO:

Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda, raw honey and lemon juice in bowl. Stir the ingredients to make a paste and apply on your face. leave the scrub onto your face for 5 minutes and then rinse off with luke warm water.

I hope these help improve your skin and help your skin glow as look great!

    Love these! I will definitely give the green tea recipe a go. I also like to mix coffee grounds and olive oil for a face and full body scrub! I highly recommend it!
