Scrubbing the skin is an important skin care regime. It is done so that the skin can be freed from the dead layer and the pores be cleansed regularly so as to avoid sudden outburst of pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. However, there is a method of scrubbing the skin. As scrub is important for removing the dead skin, you can apply it precisely at the cheeks or the neck. Also, while applying scrub, do not apply too much pressure on your skin or rub it for long.
This habit of yours can make the skin too dry and reverse the good effects of scrub. You can scrub harder only at the t-zone of the face which comprises of the forehead and the nose. Also, in case of sensitive skin, don’t scrub for more than once every week. On other skin types, you can scrub twice or thrice per week. Now let’s read how to prepare the 6 wonderful scrubs at home.

As it suits only a few skin types, you can always play safe by adding honey to it which balances the irritation caused by lemon juice and makes it a skin clearing and moisturizing mask. However, this is more of a scrubbing mask therefore you need to add sugar to justify the purpose.
Do add one teaspoon of powdered sugar to 1 teaspoon of honey and juice from 1 fresh lemon. Mix all these three ingredients with your fingertips. Now apply on slightly damp face and let it stay for about 5 minutes. Wash off when the time is up. You can also rub this mask on your hands or feet to remove the dullness and tan.

4. Banana And Sugar:
The ingredients taken in this recipe are two completely different ingredients. Banana that has the least scrubbing property is chosen to render its skin tightening properties and also soften the skin whereas sugar playing the role of the scrub does its job of freeing the dead skin layer from the face and also cleansing its pores from dirt, sebum and excess of oil that otherwise contribute to acnes, pimples and dead skin.
Choose two most ripe bananas and mash both into a bowl. Into this paste, add enough sugar to make it feel rough to the hands. Also, prefer mashing these ingredients with hands rather than the spoon. When you have acquired the paste of medium consistency, just massage on your face from forehead to the neck. Do spare the eye region else you will find eye bags after continuous usage. Massage on the t-zone for quite some time. When done, let it sit for about 5 minutes. You can rinse off afterwards.
