DIY Natural Face Scrubs for Your Skin:

1. Coffee Scrub

The caffeine in the coffee improves the blood circulation and stimulates the skin to give you radiance and youthfulness. Coffee grounds are good to revitalize all types of skin and also very efficient for dry skin. It also contains antioxidants and protects the skin from UV damage and prevents moisture loss.

This scrub will help exfoliate your skin and remove all the dead skin cells which will leave your skin clean, soft, and fresh. Coffee scrubs are also useful to get rid of cellulite in different areas of the body.


Mix one tablespoon of coffee and one tablespoon of water together. Apply this mixture and scrub it in circular motions for 4-6 minutes. Rinse it off and pat your face dry. Use this scrub twice a week for best results.

2. Lemon, Honey, and Sugar Scrub

Lemon can help you to get rid of blackheads, acne, and discoloration as it infused with natural exfoliants that help remove dead skin cells. Honey also works as a natural antioxidant and helps to moisturize and heal any inflamed skin. Sugar acts as an exfoliator.

If your skin is too dry, I would recommend not to leave on the scrub on the face for too long as it will make your skin more dry and flaky.


Mix an of cup sugar, half a cup olive oil, and one tablespoon honey together. Add the juice of one lemon to this mixture and stir it well till it is combined. Apply this mixture on your face and scrub it gently for a few minutes, then wash it off with cold water or wipe it off with a flannel.
