Skin Type: Oily and Acne Prone
I skipped makeup for over a week and spent the entire time creating and trying DIY beauty recipes. So today, I am going to share the recipe of a face scrub I tried. This one is made with rose petals and orange peel to brighten up the skin. It’s quite easy to make and is perfect for winters as well. Let’s get into the details!
Rose: Rose is rich in vitamin C, hence it is a big source of antioxidants. It protects the skin cells from damage and makes them healthy. It also protects the skin from sun damage and its soothing effect calms down tired skin. It also has moisturising properties that keep the skin soft and glowy. It acts as an antibacterial ingredient as well.
Orange Peel: Orange is an excellent source of vitamin C. It keeps the skin young and glowing. Orange peel offers great scrubbing properties. Its smooth exfoliating particles remove all the dead skin cells and make the skin smooth. It also makes the skin look bright and clear. Orange peel lightens up dark patches, spots and suntan.
Honey: Honey is full of antioxidants. It is a great anti-aging ingredient. It is extremely moisturising and soothing, hence it imparts a radiant glow. Honey is clarifying and opens up the pores, making them easy to unclog.
Milk: Milk is known for its moisturising effects. It helps to keep the skin soft and deeply moisturised for long. It reduces blemishes and works as a spot cleanser. It also helps to brighten up the complexion and reduce dullness. It keeps the skin bright and glowing. It also offers anti-ageing properties.
First, you need to take 1 tablespoon of milk in a bowl. Then add ½ spoon of orange peel paste. Combine them nicely into a smooth paste.
Next, add 1 spoon of rose petal paste to it and mix all the ingredients well.
Add some honey to the mixture and combine all the ingredients well one more time.
Your scrub is ready to be used. Apply this scrub on face and gently massage it on your skin for around 5 minutes. Rinse with normal water.
This scrub is full of natural goodness and is great for all skin types. Rose and orange help to provide a bright glow to the skin. Orange peel paste has some scrubbing particles that help to exfoliate skin well. Hence, they make your skin smooth and soft. This paste removes dry and rough texture of the skin and eliminates dead skin cell. It is also effective on blackheads but don’t expect instant results. Orange also reduces spots and makes the skin appear clear.
This scrub also provides hydration to the skin. Therefore, it keeps the skin soft and moisturised for long. I love its fresh and youthful effect on the skin. Since orange is quite strong in nature, do not apply this scrub without taking a patch test. Also, don’t apply this scrub on any active pimple or skin irritation. Otherwise, it is an effective face scrub. I hope you will enjoy using it.
