But regardless of all that fact, one thing is certain and a very important must – we have to have a proper skincare routine and we have to take care of our self. The market and the internet, in general, are full of products that provide different therapy, for different skin types, and for different prices.

You might have heard a lot about oats being healthy for our body, but what we fail to consider is that it is a great textured remedy if you are having rough skin too. So what you have to do is actually very simple.

You have to take some oats, one tablespoon might just be enough if you are using it for your face only. Then add one tablespoon of sugar.

Any oil that you are comfortable in. Mix them all together and very gently, massage the scrub on your face and hands and let it sit for 15-20 mins, and wash off with normal or lukewarm water.

Honey Yogurt Scrub  


Honey is another such ingredient that gives your skin a baby soft texture and smoother surface. There’s a lot of products that use honey as one main ingredient and hype it up.

So today let’s see how keeping honey and yogurt as the main component we can get a perfect DIY Sugar scrub for glowing skin. Take one tablespoon of honey, whatever brand you can find in your kitchen. And one tablespoon of sugar – brown or white whichever you like. Then add a tablespoon of yogurt either sour or fresh, again depending on you, and lastly add the body or face oil.

Any oil of your liking will simply do the trick here. Mix them all together to make a smooth kind of paste.

So always massage as gently as you can and wash it after 20 minutes with lukewarm water. Get glowing skin within minutes, with no expensive investment, and see how beautiful your skin looks, inside and out.

Brown Sugar Scrub


You might think that the name brown sugar is a tricky product and not easily available. But let me tell you, brown sugar, these days, is easily available in any grocery store and is totally inexpensive, which makes it affordable for all. Now, always remember that brown sugar is the most gentle on your skin, even more than Epsom salt. It exfoliates your skin gently and deeply, removing all the dirt buildup and fighting with wrinkles. Mix the brown sugar with any choice of your desired essential oil, and mark the consistency of the scrub.

When you see the consistency coming out okay, gently apply and scrub your skin and the part you wanted and get the skin you actually wanted. Make sure to thoroughly rinse the scrub after applying as brown sugar can be slightly sticky.

Green Tea Sugar Scrubs


Green tea is not only good for our tummy but also for our skin. It has a great number of anti-inflammatory properties that nourish and moisturize your skin. Likewise, green tea mixed up with sugar provides you with a very healthy shrub that brightens the glow on your skin. Boil the tea bags in water and let the tea deep into it completely. After the tea has been cooled down, mix it with brown sugar and coconut oil. Don’t add the hot water to the sugar as it will be dissolved. Mix all the ingredients and look out for the perfect consistency.

Green tea protects your skin against sun damage and also from any other harmful things that can bring damage to your skin. Scrub your hands, face, and body and rinse off after 20 minutes. Get glowing skin in half an hour.

Lemon Sugar Scrub


Lemon has antioxidants and it is as good for your skin as it is for your insides. Mix half a lemon drops with two tablespoons of sugar, and also add coconut oil, vitamin E oil, and other oil that you desire for fragrance. Mix them properly and apply them on your feet, face, body, hands, legs – anywhere you want. Really. Lemon combined with white sugar has the properties to clear out blackheads and blemishes from your skin and remove dead skins from unwanted places.
