Hey Guys !! I hope you all are doing really well 🙂
Like I’ve always mentioned “Exfoliation” is the key !!
Make-up can definitely increase your confidence x2, but having a good skin and requiring minimum makeup, I feel, increases your confidence x4.
This particular blog is based on a Natural Face Scrub !!
It contains of just two ingredients, easily available, used daily in almost everyone’s kitchen & i.e Tomato and Sugar.
Yeah Yeah, I know many of you are already aware and everything, but this is especially for those who are New to this Face Scrub !!
Before I get into how to make the face scrub, let’s just quickly talk about the Benefits of both Tomato and Sugar for our Skin !!
Tomato is one such ingredient that contains Vitamins A, C and K, which are in fact the important vitamins present in the beauty products that we purchase. These vitamins are great contributors towards a Healthy skin.
Tomato definitely is a super food, it is not only beneficial for your health but also for your skin. Tomato is Acidic and hence it helps in unclogging and reducing your pores, also aids in reduction of acne. They say it has anti-aging properties, but I am not sure on this.
I would also want to mention that if you are allergic to such natural acidic ingredients or if you are allergic to tomatoes, then using it on your face also could cause a reaction. That is why, I can’t stress enough on how important it is to do a Patch test.
Natural ingredients however may not have adverse effects on your skin but it could cause rashes, irritation or redness. So when you use this scrub, in case you feel any kind of irritation, chances of which are very minimal, just wash it quickly.
Sugar is considered to be bad when it comes to including it in your diet but it does have incredible benefits when it comes to skin care.
Sugar can help hydrate your skin, exfoliate your skin, remove dead cells and help regenerate new ones.
Sugar can help even out your skin tone giving it a smooth texture. It also helps keep your face moisturized.
All of these terms do have scientific names however keeping it as simple as possible, these are the important benefits of both tomato and sugar for your skin.
How to make the Face Scrub and How to use it?
– All you need is half tomato and 1/2 teaspoon fine granulated sugar, just like the scrub name suggests.
– Spread the granulated sugar evenly over the half surface of the tomato.
– Gently move the tomato in circular motions on your face and neck.
– Make sure to be as gentle as possible because sugar can cause cuts, so go slow !!
– Focus more on your cheeks, nose & chin.
– Relax for 5 to 10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.
– Use a mild moisturizer and you are good to go !!
That’s about it, that’s all you need to do in this Face Scrub. It is just going to take you about 5 to 10 minutes and the results will be – Glowing & Healthy looking skin, Hydrated skin & Even skin tone/texture !!
Do a patch test and if it works well, then use it once or twice a week depending upon your skin care routine or schedule.
