Top Five Easy Homemade Body Scrub Recipes With Kitchen Ingredients
2. Yoghurt-Coffee Moisturizing Body Scrub: Lightly ground coffee powder (one cup) is to be mixed with fresh yoghurt (1/2 cup). Massage your body with this paste in circular motions. It is helpful in making your skin soft and even. The best part of using this scrub is that you need not moisturize after using this scrub.
3. Tomato-Rice Body Scrub (for oily skin): Some uncooked rice (known as ‘chawal’ to Indians) should be soaked in water for about thirty minutes. Grind the rice coarsely. Make the puree of some tomatoes and add the rice particles in it. Apply the mixture on your body and let it remain for twenty minutes or so. Wash off with warm water using circular motions. This extremely good for you if you have an oily or combination skin.
4. Honey-Sugar Body Scrub (for dry skin): Take four spoons of sugar and soak it in honey. Make sure that the sugar does not melt. Add two spoons of olive oil. Scrub your body with this mixture. While scrubbing, if you find that the sugar melts, keep adding sugar till you finish scrubbing. Honey is an excellent humectant and promotes moisture retention; olive oil too adds to the moisture content and thus, this scrub works wonders for you if you have a dry skin.
5. Yellow Lentil-Milk Scrub (for sensitive skin): Soak half cup of yellow lentils (commonly known as ‘arhar’/ “tuvar’ dal in India) in water for thirty minutes. Make a paste and add milk in it. A spoon of chickpea powder (chickpea is generally known as ‘kabuli chana’, ‘kala chana’ and ‘hara chana’ and is easily available in Indian kitchens) and mix till it becomes a thick paste. Use it as a scrub and this skincare recipe is known to be good for sensitive skin types
