Once per week, your skin needs a simple exfoliating face scrub. The process helps remove dead skin cells and other impurities. The impurities accumulate in your skin, and they can clog the pores. When that happens, acne appear on your face. So, why not prevent it?
Exfoliation also helps keep the complexion clear and the skin looking healthy. Now, you can find tons of exfoliating products in the stores. The beauty industry makes sure of that.
But in addition to healthy ingredients, these products might contain plastics, fragrance, glycerin, parabens, and similar questionable ingredients.
The good news is that you can make something better than commercial products. Your delicate facial skin deserves it. Simple homemade face scrubs are perfect recipes for beginners in the do-it-yourself skin care.
If you are looking for easy and inexpensive homemade face scrubs, we have some for you. You probably have the ingredients for all in your kitchen. Take a look.

2. Brightening Face Scrub
For this face scrub, we use the usual suspects. Brown sugar is one of the best homemade ingredients for exfoliating. And coconut oil provides the necessary moisture for your skin after the treatment.
But the icing on the cake in this case is strawberry. This lovely and delicious fruit helps brighten your skin and even out the skin tone. Bonus: strawberries are rich in antioxidants.
