Many face scrubs are harsh and abrasive, but not the one I prepared especially for my sensitive skin. I was born with sensitive skin and it remained sensitive. It seems that as I grow older my skin gets more sensitive. And, as any other person, I have complexion flaws, and blackheads or pimples are among them. In order to get rid of these skin imperfections, I have to take a good care of my complexion and one of the most important things in getting rid of blackheads is daily (at least every two days) scrubbing.
Since many scrubs are a bit harsh with my skin, I started to prepare my own. Besides that it matches my skin type, this homemade scrub is really cheap. You will adore it in every way!
So, take a look over this natural face scrub for sensitive skin!
- 2 tablespoons of oatmeal
- 2 tablespoons of aloe vera (freshly extracted from leaf)
- 1 teaspoon of honey
How To Prepare:
Mix all the above ingredients in a small glass bowl and start scrubbing your face with it. Repeat this procedure daily while showering and your skin will glow. The ingredients will soothe the skin with their anti-inflammatory properties.
Oatmeal is very effective as physical exfoliant. Use it whole or grind it up to gently unclog pores and soothe irritation.
Aloe vera is great for keeping skin clear and healthy, not to mention reducing inflammation and pain.
Raw honey kills bacteria, plumps skin and acts as a humectant to draw in moisture and soothe skin. Use raw honey on red or irritated skin to calm inflammation.
