  Fact-checking   Autentic   DMCA   Report

These 4 excellent homemade face scrubs can be made at home and use natural ingredients like oatmeal and honey, being great for removing dead skin cells while deeply moisturizing the skin and helping to lighten blemishes on the face.

Exfoliation consists of rubbing granular substances on the skin in order to remove dirt and dead cells from the outermost layer. The benefit of this procedure is to improve hydration, as it is easier for the moisturizer to penetrate into the deeper layers, having a better effect on the body.


Option 1

  • 2 tablespoons of oatmeal
  • 1 tablespoon of honey

Option 2

  • 30 g of oats
  • 125 ml yogurt (natural or strawberry)
  • 3 strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon of honey

Option 3

  • 1 spoon of oats
  • 3 spoons of milk
  • 1 spoon of bicarbonate of soda

Option 4

  • 2 spoons of oats
  • 1 spoon of brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil

Preparation mode

Mix the ingredients and apply all over the face with small circular movements all over the skin. When finished, the face should be washed well with cold water. Then hydrate the skin with a good moisturizer to restore its elasticity and make the skin more beautiful and healthy.

In addition to cleaning the skin, it is very important to apply a toner to rebalance the skin’s pH, apply a moisturizer after showering and use sunscreen every day.

How often should you exfoliate your skin?

The exfoliation can be performed during the bath, once a week and is indicated for all skin types, however you should avoid rubbing red and sunburned skin and in case of inflamed pimples, so as not to aggravate the skin inflammation. .

You shouldn’t exfoliate your skin every day, because the outermost layer needs to regenerate, needing about 5 days to be ready for a new exfoliation. Doing more than 1 exfoliation per week can leave the skin fragile and very thin, with a greater possibility of aggression due to the sun, wind, cold or heat.

The skin needs to be exfoliated when it shows signs of dry skin, blackheads, oiliness or ingrown hairs, which can be useful for both men and women, but it should not be used on babies and children who have very thin and sensitive skin.
