Hope you all had great holidays. Mine went a bad. We thought of spending our Eid vacation with my Sister in law and family in Fujairah but my son got totally uncomfortable with new location, place and weather that we had to return back home on Eid day itself. But anyway, guess we have to make little adjustments to keep the baby comfortable and that is all I was concerned about.
So into today’s post, in my AM & PM cleanser post I talked about the homemade scrub I use on Mondays and Thursdays. So here I am to share with you the recipe!
- Powdered Oats – 1 teaspoon
- Rice Flour – 1 teaspoon
- Semolina (Not the roasted one) – 1 teaspoon
- Milk – as required.
I mix all the dry ingredients and store it in an airtight container.
When ready to use, I take a teaspoon of milk and add enough powder to make a smooth runny paste. It should be a little runny as shown.
Then I apply to the face in patting motion and leave it on for 2-3 minutes.
I don’t leave it longer as it dries very fast. After 2-3 minutes, I wet my face slightly and massage in circular motion for one minute. I take care to be gentle, I am not polishing a furniture! Also I do not scrub on pimples – it will be painful, it can burst and become infected. I do not miss the area around my nose, where blackheads seem to make their village! After that I rinse and pat dry. If your skin is very sensitive, you might need only once a week scrub but do check with your dermatologist first. I have heard some sensitive skinned people are advised never to use scrubs.
