2. You Can Try Out a Lemon and Sugar Face Scrub
I love sugar and its properties. I’m not joking. The sugar that will come from this scrub helps to remove dead skin cells and make your skin more beautiful.
Lemon on the other hand helps that effect work better by using its acid properties to work on the skin. Lemon helps to tighten the pores of your skin and it also reduces your skin’s pH – if it’s not normal.
These two ingredients work perfectly well to ensure that both large pores and irregular pH are totally taken care of by the properties of the lemon and the sugar.

Yummie. I already feel like eating it first before applying on my face.
LOL, I’m joking.
But sincerely speaking the Honey and Oatmeal Scrub is a wonderful treat for your skin and can effectively fend off acne and reduce its annoying outbreaks.
One profound reason I love the mixture is because of what the two items carry. Oatmeal come preloaded with saponin which can effectively detox your skin. It comes loaded with numerous anti-inflammatory properties that helps your skin fight off acne outbreaks that could be by numerous reactions to stuff you can’t control.
The cool thing is while oatmeal is doing its thing – like exfoliating your skin and cooling off the inflammation points in your skin – the honey on the other hand will help hydrate your skin and make it look healthier.
And I’m in no way forgetting the adding of yoghurt, which goes a long way to control your skin’s excess oil production.

Get some quantity of honey, yoghurt and oatmeal. Make sure the ingredients are at least equal amounts.
After mixing them thoroughly, go ahead and apply them onto your face and leave it there for like 10 mins.

For those who are allergic to yoghurt or don’t just like it, you can replace it with rose water. That’s a better substitute.
4. You Can Try Out a Strawberry and Oats Scrub
One of the reason I love strawberries is due to their rich salicylic acid content. I know you’re probably wondering what salicylic acid does to acne. Does it affect it positively in any way?
Well it sure does. One of the things you should know is that salicylic acid is predominant in lot of acne treatment products in the market.
And one of the beauties of this ingredient is its active dissolving of dead skin cells. But it doesn’t stop there. It helps reduce the tendency for clogged pores to develop. Another thing I like about this is it can change drastically the acne look on your face and turn it from severe to normal looking.
