When time is running out and the desire to have smooth and smooth skin begins to be felt, the time has come to take advantage of what we have at home and prepare a face scrub that is simple to make, fast and super effective.

The scrub is a compound formed by a creamy or gel part and containing microgranules. This particular texture allows the scrub to exfoliate the skin in a delicate way, leaving it smooth and smooth. In fact, if on the one hand the microgranules have precisely the function of removing, through the massage on the skin, the most superficial cells, on the other hand the oils and moisturizing principles contained in the creamy part, make the scrub a perfect product also to nourish the skin. . 


Do-it-yourself honey-based scrub 

Honey is a great ingredient for the skin. In fact, it has strong soothing properties, therefore able to balance the exfoliation action exerted by the microgranules very well. In this DIY mixture, honey can be mixed with sugar: take a spoonful of honey and place it in a small bowl, then add a spoonful of sugar and mix everything. At this point you will have obtained your scrub that you can apply, with a massage on the face for a few minutes, and then proceed with the final rinse.


Do-it-yourself scrub based on olive oil 

If your skin is very dry, olive oil is the ideal solution! In this case, combine two tablespoons of olive oil with a tablespoon of honey and one of sugar. Enjoy your massage on your face for a few minutes and proceed by rinsing with warm water.


DIY banana-based scrub 

For oily skin, banana is an excellent alternative to olive oil. The absence of oil makes this fruit a perfect ally to provide nourishment and hydration to the skin without weighing it down. Making your own banana-based scrub is simple: you just need half a banana to mash, until pulp, with a fork. Then add a spoonful of sugar and mix everything until you get a homogeneous mixture, et voilà, your face scrub is ready! 

Do-it-yourself yogurt-based scrub

Yogurt has emollient and refreshing properties. To use it in your DIY scrub, simply combine a spoonful of yogurt with two spoonfuls of sugar. By mixing everything you should obtain a homogeneous mixture, ready to apply on the face to refresh the skin and hydrate it deeply.


These are just some of the possible ingredients you can choose to use to make a super effective DIY scrub. However, you can indulge yourself with other ingredients that you find in your refrigerator or pantry, such as avocado. The important thing is to always remember to combine sugar (or similar) with a creamier and more nutritious ingredient to obtain an exfoliating compound to massage on the skin.
