5 HOME-MADE FACE SCRUBS TO CLEAR CLOGGED PORES!!

Not a fan of traditional chemical? I’ve got you covered.

Due to the presence of dust, heat and pollution, our skin is turning dull and tired day by day. Cleansing and moisturizing are not enough to keep our skin healthy and nourished.

Therefore, we’ve come up with five home-made exfoliators to help you rejuvenate your skin!

EXFOLIATION: Exfoliation is the process of removing the dead skin cells that is hard to shed away from the surface of the skin.

CHOCOLATE

Chocolate protects us from skin damage, retains the moisture of the skin and has many antioxidants. To make a chocolate scrub, you need to pour and mix two to three tablespoon of melted dark chocolate with a cup of granulated sugar and a little bit of ground coffee and coconut oil. 

PRO TIP: Before the application of the mixture, heating it for six to eight seconds enhances its properties. 

COFFEE

Coffee acts as an anti-ageing agent as well as a dark circle remover. However, you do need to go through the effects of chemicals to get the benefit of coffee. Just add two tablespoons of hot water to 3 tablespoons of ground coffee along with one tablespoon of warm coconut oil. And, there is your coffee scrub!

PRO TIP: Vanilla extracts are considered an excellent addition for preparing a coffee scrub exfoliator.

SEA SALT

PRO TIP: You can make the scrub more nourishing by adding a few drops of essential oils.

SUGAR

All of us are quite aware of how beneficial green tea is for our health. It has a substantial impact on our skin texture.

Just heat to two teabags of green tea in hot water. After it cools down, mix it with a cup of brown sugar and warm coconut oil. Apply it all over your face in circular motions to get smooth skin.
