diva4

Oily skin causes trouble for many people. The extra oil gets stuck in their pores, causing acne and other problems. Most methods related to oily skin will help reduce the problem over time. There aren’t too many ways to reduce the oil quickly.

Fortunately, the scrub is one of the few quick options. One of the options will be microdermabrasion scrub. But we will talk about making a homemade face scrub today!

While originally designed to scrub dead skin cells off the surface of your skin, it can also help to take away the excessive oil.Scrubs are a combination of natural ingredients. You can place the scrub on your face a couple of times a week to help remove dead skin, dirt, and oil. Read on to learn a few of the most popular scrub methods today!

Oat Facial Scrub

What you will need:

  • Oats
  • Water (or honey)
  • Container

How you will use it:

  • Grind the oats into a fine powder.
  • Put the ground oats in the container.
  • Mix them with water.
  • Apply the mixture to your face for five minutes.
  • After the five minutes are up or when the mixture dries, rinse your face thoroughly.
  • Repeat the process twice each week for the best result.

The above process is one of the simplest and gentlest to use. If your skin is quite sensitive or you have many food allergies, I would recommend this method.

Honey and Almond Facial Scrub

What you will need:

  • Honey
  • Almonds
  • Container

How you will use it:

  • Grind the almonds. Stop when they become small grains. If the almonds are finely ground, the mixture may suffer.
  • Mix the almonds with two or three teaspoons of honey.
  • Apply the mixture to your face for fifteen minutes or until it dries.
  • Rinse your face with cold water.
  • Repeat the process twice each week for the best result.

The almonds and honey work well together. The almonds remove skin blemishes while the honey leaves your skin moist after removing the oil.

Egg, Lime Juice, and Salt Facial Scrub

What you will need:

  • The white of an egg
  • Sea salt
  • Lime juice
  • Container

How you will use it:

  • Mix a half teaspoon of lime with a few pinches of salt and the egg white.
  • Once fully mixed, apply it to your face.
  • Gently scrub your face with the mixture still applied.
  • Rinse your face thoroughly.
  • Repeat the process twice each week for the best result.

This mixture may feel a bit gross in comparison to the others. However, it is very effective. The salt kills harmful germs on your face, the lime juice helps to balance the pigment in your skin, and the egg white tightens the skin cells together more.

Cucumber Facial Scrub

What you will need:

  • Cucumber (Naturally)
  • Container
  • Masher

How you will use it:

  • Mash the cucumber.
  • Apply it to your face.
  • Massage the cucumber mash into your face with your fingers.
  • Leave it there for fifteen minutes.
  • Rinse your face.
  • Repeat the process twice each week for the best result.

While the cucumber face scrub is one of the easiest to make, it gets the same if not better results as most others!

These are a few of the most popular facial scrubs to date. Which one sounds the best for you? Give it a try and see how much healthier your previously oily skin becomes!
