4 DIY Face Scrubs For Acne
When you have adult acne, exfoliation is one of the most important things you can do. This will help to clean out your pores, which are often the result of the acne in the first place. Here are some scrubs you can make at home with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
Tea, Honey, and Vinegar Face Scrub
This face scrub is very easy to make and probably includes ingredients you have on hand. Green tea is an excellent option for helping with acne, so you wan to first make green tea, then allow it to cool. You only need about two teaspoons of it, so don’t worry about making too much. You will then add a small amount of apple cider vinegar to the green tea, along with regular sugar and a bit of honey. Stir it together and apply it to your skin, scrubbing well. You can then rinse it off with cool water.
Sugar Cinnamon Scrub
This is a fun scrub to make in the fall season since you are using cinnamon and a small amount of sugar to scrub onto your face. All you need to do is add some cinnamon and just a bit of sugar to a bowl, then add enough honey to turn it into a grainy paste. It should be thick enough to pick up with your fingers and scrub onto your face, so only use a small amount of honey. You can rinse it after applying, or use it as a mask and leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing.
Yogurt and Honey Mask
This acne mask is going to be less of an exfoliant, and more of a cleanser with these natural ingredients. You can either use yogurt or milk, or a combination of both for the creamy element. You then once again want to use honey. Honey in its natural form is really good for your skin as it moisturizes it while also cleansing the pores. Make sure you use natural, raw honey, and not the sugary honey you use on your biscuits. Combine the ingredients and cleanse your face with it, then rinse with cool water.
Lemon Oatmeal Scrub
The lemon contains antioxidants and the ground oatmeal will help to exfoliant your skin when you use this scrub. Combine the oats with enough lemon juice to create a scrub. You can also add in some yogurt if you want more of a creamy texture. First exfoliate it with the scrub, then leave it on your face like a mask before rinsing.
