Since there are so many benefits of facial scrubs, you should start scrubbing your skin at the earliest. But before you go for a facial scrub, make sure that you stay organic and use natural products. The natural facial scrubs have no side effects and are less costly.

In addition to all these benefits, with natural facial scrubs you can be sure of what you are putting on your face. Even if there are no fast and miraculous results initially, you will get long term and healthier results if you use natural facial scrubs rather than the artificial ones.
Here are some of our favorite natural facial scrubs that you can try to get a luxuriant facial skincare at home without going out of your way to get an expensive facial treatment.
Matcha Green Tea Scrub:
Green tea has antioxidants and refreshing properties which rejuvenate your skin and cleanse it deeply. Matcha naturally produces energising properties, which helps to stimulate skin cells and blood flow to help reduce the effects of ageing. It contains more antioxidants than dark chocolate, spinach and fruits. It helps to absorb and prevent excess oil and sebum on your skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of acne and blackheads.
To make this mask, you need to 1 Tb dried green tea leaves 2-4 tea bags depending on size of tea bag. 1 cup organic brown sugar, 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil. 2 Tb honey. 10 drops lavender essential oil optional. Then exfoliate your skin with it twice a week and you will be surprised by how great your skin looks.
Papaya Facial Scrub:
Papaya facial scrub is a refreshing and revitalizing scrub that you can try to achieve a natural glow to your skin. It contains BHA (or beta hydroxy acid) that acts as a mild exfoliator. It gently removes the top layer of dead skin cells from your face and makes your skin radiant and younger looking. It also clears the dirt and oil that can lead to acne and breakouts on the face.
I have tried this at home and for making this, you need to mix some papaya fruit pulp, 1 teaspoon of organic lemon and 1 cup of brown sugar. This is the mix. Scrub your face with it for 20 minutes and wash with warm water. Papaya peel can reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Believing or not some claims that it is as effective as Retin-A. The peel contains enzymes that remove dead cells from the surface of the skin. This helps remove wrinkles and age spots.You just need the peel and rub the papaya peel all over your face and neck. Wait 20 minutes and rinse with cold water.
My skin looks smooth and very soft. A continued usage of these facial scrubs will definitely improve your skin for better and you will surely thank us for recommending them!
