Home Made Body and Face Scrub Recipes

Hello Beauties,
Today I am going to share some DIY recipes, you know what? I am going to share three homemade face and body scrubs. They are free from harmful chemicals, side effects and these scrubs will suits all skin types. You no need to strain yourself much and you can prepare these scrubs on the go just.

What is Scrub?
Scrub is a fine granule which helps to eliminate blackheads, white heads and dead cells from the skin, also helps in fading pimple marks the from the skin and clean the clogged pores. Scrubs can be used weekly once or twice according to the skin type, oily skin may need to scrub weekly thrice. Regular scrubbing is not recommended according to skin care routine. Also Sensitive Skin people should be very careful while choosing scrubs for them, the scrub granules should be very fine and shouldn't harm their skin while scrubbing.

Oily skin people should choose scrubs without creamy texture like neem, Rice flour, green gram dhal, besan, these scrubs will absorb excess oil from the skin and remove the unwanted things from the skin as well. There are so many brands selling scrubs which are specially formulated for oily skin.

Dry skin people should choose creamy scrubs which won’t dry out the skin after scrubbing. They can prepare scrubs in home themselves by mixing honey and sugar, olive oil with crushed guava. I will share more homemade scrubs in future.

Important Note: Don’t scrub your skin if you have pimples in your face this will aggravate the problem more, as the pimples and the infection on the skin easily get spreads all over the face.

Homemade Scrubs for Face and Body:
Curd and Rice flour Scrub:

Curd is an excellent ingredient for pampering our skin at any time; curd is rich in Vitamin C which can brighten the skin immediately. It has excellent property that can calm down irritated skin after applying it on the skin, also moisturize the skin and leave the skin soft and glowing.

Rice flour is also contains full of good vitamins and minerals which is rich in vitamin B complex, this Vitamin B is very good for skin rejuvenation. This rice flour has very fine granules which are helping to remove dead cells, black heads and white heads. This is a wonderful Scrub and it is my all time favourite.

If you don’t like curd’s smell you can mix raw milk instead of curd as the raw milk has almost the same properties like curd.

Things you will need to prepare this Scrub:
1.       Curd or Raw milk
2.       Rice Flour
3.       One sterilized bowl and a mixer spoon


Preparation Method:
Take needed amount of curd and rice flour in a bowl and mix them well. The mixture should be like a thick paste like neither runny nor thick in texture. Now the Scrub is ready to use.
Apply it all over the face and body slightly massage it and then leave the scrub on the skin for ten minutes. Now apply warm water all over the body and skin, slightly massage and scrub and now wash it off by cool water.
You can see the immediate rejuvenation, brightness and freshness of the skin after washing. This is very easy method, but very effective home remedy.

Milk and Coffee powder Scrub:
I know you all will laugh and yes this is a coffee scrub which we use to prepare and drink daily. So, it is very easy and on the go scrub preparation. I have learned this scrub idea from my mother, she use to scrub her body and face by this coffee scrub.

We all know Milk is very good for skin, it is enriched by vitamins and minerals and coffee is rich in antioxidants. So for getting youthful skin the easiest way is using homemade coffee scrub.

Things needed to prepare this scrub:
1.       Milk (boiled or raw)
2.       Coffee powder (Chikkari coffee powder which is used to prepare filter coffee)
3.       One sterilized bowl and a mixer spoon


Preparation Method:
Take needed amount of milk and coffee powder make it like a thick paste. Apply it all over the body and face and then massage gentle on the skin. You will feel the freshness and youthful on the skin by regular use of this scrub.

This scrub is not recommended for sensitive skin, because the coffee granules are little bigger and might be little harsh. For sensitive skin people they can use this scrub by grinding this coffee powder into fine granules.

Sugar and Chocolate scrub:
This scrub is very well known scrub for you all, we can make it in the home itself. Chocolate is rich in antioxidants and it has moisturising property. Sugar granules have excellent scrubbing property.

Things needed to prepare this scrub:
1.       Milk
2.       Sugar (grinded)
3.       Chocolate (Powder or Choco bar)


Preparation Method:
If you have chocolate powder mix it with a small amount of milk and make it like a thick paste, now add the sugar powder and start apply on the skin, then scrub. Because, the sugar powder is tend to become melt and the scrub mixture will become watery, if we delay to apply on the skin.


This is the best scrub for winter season and also for dry skin beauties, this scrub will leave skin smooth, soft and radiant. This scrub is very good for body skin polishing, gives shining body skin like a mirror by regular use.
