The oatmeal scrub recipe below uses some common, non-expensive ingredients which are great for the health of your skin. It is suitable for all skin types.
Oatmeal – The flakes reduce skin irritation and inflammation. Also, oatmeal contains saponins, which are responsible for deeply cleaning the skin. It is very helpful in treating acne.
Eggs – I know, we usually eat eggs. But why not try to benefit from all their vitamins and minerals by putting them on our face? The skin also needs vitamins and minerals. And the eggs can provide them: vitamin A, selenium, iodine, vitamin B12, B2, iron, calcium, phosphorus and potassium.
Whole milk – Reduces acne, cleans and moisturizes. It is a well-known ingredient of the homemade remedies that women have used throughout the centuries. The biggest benefit is the fact that reduces skin pigmentation and gives a special brightness to the skin.
Brown sugar – Exfoliates the skin
