Homemade Facial Scrubs and Masks

Why settle for expensive treatments and exfoliating products when you can make your own facial scrubs at home? Save your money. Here are some beauty recipes that I recently discovered, cheaper than the commercialized beauty products in the market. Try and see the results, it’s all natural.

  • Oatmeal Smoother
    1/2 cup ground oatmeal.(easy to do, just put non-instant oatmeal in a blender or food processor and process until ground)
    1/2 cup powdered milk

Steps:
-Mix this dry mixture together.

-Store in zip bag, jar or tin. Can be used daily.

TO USE: Mix 2 tsp of dry mix with 2 tsp water to make a paste. Stir until smooth paste is formed. Massage onto face and throat. Rinse. If you want to exfoliate, add some coarse salt or ground almonds to the mixture.

  • Sugar (that’s it, plain old Sugar!)

Sugar works great, but  if you’re prone to acne or fungus because it can cause bacteria or fungus to grow if it’s not washed off completely, great results.

  • Baking Soda + Water

Good for everyday use. To loosen blackheads, combine equal parts baking soda and water in your hand and rub gently on your skin for 2 to 3 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

  • Banana Scrub

-2 teaspoons mashed banana

-2 teaspoons rolled oats

-1 teaspoon milk

-1 teaspoon honey

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until it forms a smooth paste-like  substance. Apply to face and leave it for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes massage it in your face. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water. This scrub works as a peel. The dead skin cells adhere to the slightly dried paste and are removed by the friction created when you gently massage it over your face.

  • Papaya Facial Scrub

Mash a piece of ripe papaya, then add 1/2 tsp brown sugar and rub your face with it. Leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse well. Your skin will be fresh and glowing. Feel the difference!

  • Tomato Scrub

First, choose a ripe and good tomato. Pound it and then take the juice. And then apply it on your clean face. Let it stay for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, wash your face again with warm water. You will find a spectacular result. Your face will feel very smooth and soft.

  • Egg White Scrub

For oily skin, you can have this kind of mask to take away the oil away from your skin. Get the white part of an egg, squeeze some lemon drops into it. Stir it for a bit and then apply it onto your clean face. Let it stay for 20 minutes. When you feel it hardened you can wash your face with warm water. You will feel no more oil on your face, and it can keep your face clean. It can actually get rid of the oil for about two days. Isn’t it amazing?

  • Milk and Potato Mask

Get half of a potato, boil it. Pound the boiled potato after. Pour milk onto it, mix and apply to your face. Let the mixture stay on your face for about 30 minutes until the milk gets dry. Then you can wash your face with warm water to open pores.
