Exfoliation is one of the most important things you can do if you have adult acne. Exfoliating helps clean out your pores, and clogged pores are often the cause of acne. Here are some scrubs you can make at home with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
Tea, Honey, and Vinegar Face Scrub
This face scrub is very straightforward and includes ingredients you may already have on hand. Green tea is an excellent option for treating acne. Make green tea and set it aside to cool. You only need about two teaspoons of it, so do not worry about making too much. Add a small amount of apple cider vinegar to the green tea, along with some regular sugar and a bit of honey. Stir it all together and apply the mixture onto your skin, scrubbing well. You can then rinse it off with fresh water.
Sugar Cinnamon Scrub
This is a fun scrub to make in the fall season since you will be using cinnamon and a small amount of sugar to scrub onto your face. To make this scrub, add some cinnamon and a little bit of sugar to a bowl, then add enough honey to turn it into a grainy paste. It should be thick enough to pick up with your fingers and scrub onto your face, so only use a small amount of honey. You can rinse it off after application or use it as a mask and leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing.
Yogurt and Honey Mask
This acne mask is going to be less of an exfoliator and more of a cleanser with these natural ingredients. You can either use yogurt or milk or a combination of both for the creamy element. You also want to use honey here. Honey, in its natural form, is perfect for your skin as it moisturizes it while also cleansing your pores. Make sure that you only use natural, raw honey and not the sugar honey used for biscuits. Combine the ingredients and wash your face with it, then rinse it all off with lukewarm water
Lemon Oatmeal Scrub
The lemon contains antioxidants, and the ground oatmeal will help exfoliate your skin. Combine the oats with enough lemon juice to create a scrub. You can also add some yogurt if you want a creamier texture. Exfoliate your face with the scrub, then leave it on like a mask before rinsing.
