Today I am sharing two different face scrubs – one for oily skin and one for dry skin. Pomegranate is a great ingredient for skin. It’s rich antioxidants properties that help to reduce skin dullness and lighten dark spots too. It keeps skin smooth and removes the blackheads very effectively. Its fine scrubbing particles remove all the dead skin cells nicely, and make skin soft and healthy. All the other ingredients are easily available too. Let’s get started!
Ingredients and Their Benefits:
Pomegranate is rich in antioxidants which help in keeping skin healthy and youthful. It can prevent hyper pigmentation and dark spots on the skin very well. Also, makes skin smooth and keeps it hydrated. It slows down the signs of ageing by reducing wrinkles and fine lines. It is also beneficial for oily skin. Not to forget, it keeps skin pimple free. Scrubbing properties of pomegranates help to keep skin smooth and reduce blackheads. It exfoliates skin very gently, leaving behind a fresh and clean skin.
For Oily Skin:
• Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe Vera’s anti-inflammatory property helps to reduce acne greatly. It reduces inflammation and redness of the skin to a great extent. It also prevents the outburst of acne and pimples. Aloe Vera lightens the skin and helps to alleviate the marks also.
• Gram Flour
Gram Flour is amazing at absorbing excess oil, preventing greasiness. Gram flour keeps skin radiantly glowing and smooth.
For Dry Skin:
Honey’s anti-bacterial properties make it an excellent cleanser for acne and pimple prone skin. Honey is called “natural bleach” too, so it can dramatically fade the scar or pimple marks.
• Cocoa Powder
Cocoa powder can deeply repair skin. It makes skin soft and hides all the dryness. It also prevents sun damage. Chocolate reduces the sign of ageing, prevents wrinkles. The antioxidant properties of cocoa make skin glowing and healthy.
Milk is known as a great moisturizer. It is full of moisturizing properties which keep skin soft and provides a rich hydration to dry skin. It heals skin nicely and makes it soft and smooth. It reduces blemishes and works as a spot cleanser.
You need to make a very fine paste of pomegranates and then separate the pomegranates juice from the paste. You should check the paste for hard beads, and remove them. Continue blending them to make a smooth paste, otherwise your skin will get hurt.
For Oily Skin
1. Add 2 tablespoons of pomegranates juice into 2 and ½ tablespoons of gram flour. Combine the mixture nicely.
2. Now add the pomegranates paste and add 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel in the mixture. Combine all the ingredients well.
3. Your pomegranates face scrub for oil skinned people is ready. Apply this face scrub on cleansed face and gently massage on skin for 5- 10 minutes. Leave this mixture as a face mask on face. Rinse after 10 minutes.
For Dry Skin
1. Add 1 big spoon of milk in the pomegranate paste and mix them together nicely.
2. Now add 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder and 4-5 drops of honey in the mixture. Combine all the ingredients nicely.
3. You are done now. This is a scrub for dry skinned people. Apply this face scrub on face and gently exfoliate your skin with this. Leave this mixture on as a face mask. Rinse with water after 15 minutes. Follow up with a moisturizer.
I have really oily skin and my mom has very dry skin. Generally in this season, my oily skin turns into combination skin and mom’s skin becomes drier. These two face scrub cum packs work really well for both the skin types. On my oily skin, it helps to remove all the blackheads and makes skin smooth. Gram flour cleanses all the dirt from the face and makes skin oil free. My oily skin too needs hydration and I get it from aloe vera gel. It provides long lasting nourishment to my skin and makes it healthy. Overall this is a good scrub for oily skin.
As my mom has dry skin, this pomegranates face scrub for dry skin works really great. Pomegranate exfoliates dry skin nicely and removes all the signs of roughness. Milk proves to be a great moisturiser and cleanses the face nicely. This scrub cleanses the face smoothly and keeps it super moisturized. My mom is 45, and her skin looks very healthy after using this. We both love these scrubs, they have never broken us out either. Do try the one meant for your skin type too, and let me know your experience. I hope you’ll like it.
