For healthy, naturally glowing skin, you need to exfoliate skin every now and then. Exfoliation involves the removal of the dead cells which make your skin look dull and aged. While there are a variety of scrubs available in the market, it is best to stick to natural ingredients for exfoliation.
Brown sugar is a commonly used kitchen ingredient and works well as an exfoliator. Brown sugar helps in removing dead cells on your face and makes your skin flawless and glowing. Here are some quick DIY scrubs you can prepare at home using brown sugar.
Honey And Brown Sugar For Dry Skin
If you have dry skin and feel dehydration or dullness on your skin then this face scrub is a must-try. Mix 1 tsp of brown sugar with 2 tsp of honey and 1 tsp of coconut oil. Mix all the ingredients well. Massage it well all over your wet face for a few minutes and then wash off with lukewarm water.
Coconut Oil And Brown Sugar For Oily Skin
If you are blessed with oily skin then this is the face scrub for you. In a bowl, add 1 tsp coconut oil, 1/2 tsp brown sugar, and mix. Massage all over your face for a few minutes and then wash with cold water.
Coffee And Brown Sugar Scrub For Normal Skin
Both brown sugar and coffee work well to bring back that shine on your face. In a bowl, add 1 tsp brown sugar, 3/4 tsp coffee powder, 1/2 tsp coconut oil, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Mix well. Apply this all over your face and neck. Gently massage. Wash with lukewarm water.
Almond Oil And Brown Sugar Scrub For Tanned Skin
If your skin feels dark and dull then skin tanning can be one reason behind it. This scrub prepared using almond oil protects your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. In a bowl, add 1 tsp of almond oil and 1 tsp of brown sugar. Mix well and apply all over your face. Massage for a few minutes and then wash.
Tea Tree Oil And Brown Sugar Scrub For Acne Prone Skin
For acne skin, you need a scrub that can gently exfoliate your skin without being too harsh. In a bowl, add 1 tsp brown sugar, 2-3 drops of tea tree oil, and 1/2 tsp of coconut oil. Mix well. Apply it on your face and scrub in a circular motion for 10 minutes. Wash it off.
Oatmeal And Brown Sugar Scrub For Glow
This scrub can also be used as a body scrub for a refreshing glow. In a bowl, add 1 tbsp of brown sugar, oatmeal, and honey. You can add 1 tsp of oil of your choice (coconut/almond/olive). Mix all the ingredients well and apply. Gently massage it all over your face for 10 minutes and then wash.
All these scrubs are prepared using natural ingredients and generally have no side effects. However, it is best to do a patch test on your hand before using any skincare product on the face directly.
While using these scrubs, make sure you aren't too harsh on the skin or you can end up hurting yourself. Don't over scrub any area on your face. Using these scrubs once or twice a week is enough. If you have sensitive skin, don't scrub for more than once a week.
