Basis of facial scrub

The basis for scrub at home can be as a normal day cream or cream gel for washing,and creamy foods that we eat. For a liquid base, scrub is suitable: sour cream, kefir, yoghurt, honey, vegetable oil, fresh fruits and vegetables, cosmetic clay. These products act as a binding base and enhance the moisturizing and nourishing properties of the scrub. After massaging with such a scrub, it can be left on the skin as a mask for 5-10 minutes.


Sour cream. Softens the skin, making it feel velvety. This product is a universal remedy for all skin types. The main rule is that the drier the skin, the more fatty the sour cream should be, and vice versa. In a sour cream based on sour cream, you can also add a little raw yolk if you have dry skin, or protein - if fatty.

Kefir. Properties of dairy products are similar in many respects, but yogurt has high acidity. Accordingly, if your skin is dry or irritated, it is better to prefer sour cream, since a high acid content in kefir can harm dry and sensitive skin, causing even more irritation and flaking. Scrubs based on kefir are more suitable for oily and combination skin types.

Honey. Has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect, relieves redness and inflammation on the skin. In many recipes, honey is mixed with a small amount of milk. This gives the scrub an extra moisturizing effect.

Vegetable oils. They are less aggressive on skin effects than, for example, dairy products, as in vegetable oil contains much less acids. Most often they are recommended for normal, dry and sensitive skin. You can use sunflower, olive, pumpkin, hemp and sesame oil.

Fresh fruits and vegetables. Puree from fruit and vegetables are rich in acids and vitamins, they strengthen the exfoliating properties of the peeling. At the same time, the skin is saturated with vitamins, which gives it freshness and healthy radiance.


Cosmetic clay. Best suitable for oily and combination skin. To obtain the necessary consistency of the basis for scrub, clay is mixed with a small amount of water.

Essential oils and squeezes from fruit seeds can be added to the scrub base, but only in small amounts, since these products are concentrated. To begin with, try adding 1-2 drops of this concentrate to the entire amount of scrub. With time, this amount can be increased to 3-4 drops. On the properties of these oils can be found by reading the instructions on the package. If desired, you can not use a liquid base, and apply a slightly moist mixture of exfoliating scrub particles to the skin of the face.

Application of scrub

It is very important to cleanse the face and neck before applying the scrub. Steam the skin - this will open the pores, and the scrub will be easier to clean them. Apply scrubs to the damp skin of the face and neck, avoiding hitting the eye area. The skin of the eyelids is very tender and thin, and the scrub can severely injure it.

It is advisable to do peeling before bedtime, especially in the summer, since the skin needs time to digest all substances at a deep level. The procedure for peeling should be done very carefully, with massage movements from the nose towards the temples, from the middle of the chin to the neck and ears, from the middle of the forehead with movements in a circle. The neck region is massaged from the bottom up. If these simple rules are observed, the skin will not be injured.

If you have oily skin, then you should peel 2-3 times a week, and if dry and sensitive, then one is enough. Owners of normal and combination skin peeling can be done 1-2 times a week, depending on the needs of the skin. Scrubs, which include solid particles( for example, berry seeds, nutshells, peel), peeling is no more than 1-2 minutes. Those scrubs, in which the exfoliating particles are smaller and softer, can be used up to 2-3 minutes. After applying scrub, you can apply a moisturizing mask or cream, the main thing is not to heavily load the skin with various means and give an opportunity to relax.

Safety measures

To protect yourself from unwanted rashes and itching on the skin due to an allergic reaction to the components of the scrub, it is necessary to perform a sensitivity test. Take a small amount of the scrub and apply to the inner elbow bend. After 5-10 minutes, rinse, and if there are redness and itching at this place, you need to replace the component that causes you allergies. Also, it is not recommended to use the scrub if there are severe inflammations or acne on the face. Otherwise, after peeling, the situation may worsen.
