DIY: Gentle Exfoliators for Acne Prone Skin

If you have acne or pimples and you are afraid that exfoliating will make it worse.. Try this DIY natural exfoliator. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells and open up the clogged pores by removing oils/dirt. Many exfoliating products contain alcohol which dries your skin making it look dull.

So it is best to use natural exfoliators especially if you have dry/sensitive skin.

  • If you have oily skin exfoliate 4 times per week
  • If you have dry skin exfoliate twice a week
  • If you have combination skin exfoliate 4-5 times a week
  • If you have sensitive skin exfoliate 1-2 times a week
Before exfoliating, wash your face with warm water to open up the pores.
1st Recipe: You Need: (For oily, combination skin)
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp honey
Apply it on the face and rub in circular motions.
2nd Recipe: You Need: (For dry, sensitive skin)
1 tbsp Rolled oats
Put the oats in a small bowl and add water, enough to make the oats a little damp. Apply and rub in circular motions. You can also watch the linked video. DIY oatmeal cleanser/exfoliator
3rd Recipe: You Need: (For all skin types and this is my favourite one. I use it EVERYDAY)
1 tsp Bajri flour (I know you have probably never heard of this but you can find it in Indian stores)
It has grey-ish colour. Add enough water/milk to make it damp and rub in circular motions. 
Personal Experience: 
I have used this SO many times, like for 2 years and I LOVED it out of all the other exfoliators. It has these little grains which makes it perfect for exfoliating. And it is for all skin types so any of you guys can use it. Take Care.
