Just like face, our body needs exfolitation too and for that you need a good scrub. Market is loaded with body scrubs in different variants but if you’re someone who prefers to DIY, then this post is for you. I’m sharing 5 homemade scrub recipes that you prepare easily. These scrubs don’t only work as an exfoliant but also as a body mask that doubles the benefit.
• Tomato Scrub
This scrub is best if you want to remove tan and works effectively with regular use specially for oily skin.
Cut 4 tomatoes and make a puree. Take a handful of rice and grind it after soaking it for 30 minutes. Now mix both the mixtures and apply it for 20 minutes. Then take a shower.
• Orange and Lemon Scrub
This zesty scrub is again good for tan removal.
