8 Best DIY Natural Face Scrubs for Glowing Skin

Looking to get glowing skin and have a little fun in the kitchen? We’ve got you covered. Whether your skin is dryacne-proneoilyaging, or just in need of a boost, there is a homemade natural face scrub for your needs. All you’ll need is a mixing bowl, measuring cups and spoons, a liquid or cream base, and the ingredients you want to add in.

How to make the best DIY face scrub for your skin

There are many ways to exfoliate skin naturally. Coffee grounds, sugar, finely ground sea salt, cinnamon, and oats are some of the best ingredients to use in a homemade exfoliating scrub, Roff says. She is a big fan of sugar face scrubs, as they can brighten dull skin and fight signs of aging.

They remove dead skin cells and surface build-up to reveal new, healthier skin and speed up the skin renewal process. Just make sure that the sugar granules are finely ground and small enough so that they don’t irritate the face, she advises.

1. Acne-Fighting Strawberry Face Scrub:

Prevent (and treat) pimples with this fruity acne-fighting yet soothing face scrub. If you’re bothered by persistent breakouts, or dull, oily skin, this scrub will help brighten, clear and reduce surface bacteria, Vargas says.

1 cup plain yogurt
½ cup mashed strawberries
½ cup almond meal
A splash of raw apple cider vinegar

Mix all ingredients and lightly buff the blend onto on skin. Leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

2. Hydrating Honey Cherry Face Scrub:

The sweet stuff is great for hydrating skin, Vargas says. Use this honey face scrub whenever your complexion needs a boost of nourishment and exfoliation at the same time.

5 cherries
1 tbsp almond powder
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp yogurt

Mix together and gently scrub onto skin for 30 seconds, then rinse with warm water.

3.Blackhead-Busting Lemon Face Scrub:

Bye, bye blackheads! Try a scrub with lemon juice to get rid of them for good. Lemon juice has antiseptic properties that aid in killing off bacteria, Balensi explains. It’s also great for reducing sebum and inflammation. Just be mindful with the amount of lemon juice you use—it’s acidic, so too much can irritate skin. And it can make your skin extra sensitive to the sun, so always apply sunscreen afterward to protect against UV damage.

½ tsp lemon
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp purified/distilled water

Mix the ingredients well and rub the paste onto skin in a circular motion. Gently scrub for two to three minutes, being careful not to rub too hard. Rinse off with warm water and follow with the rest of your skincare routine.

4. Anti-Aging Rose Face Scrub:

Talk about an anti-aging all-star. Vargas’ light, oil-based scrub hydrates skin, tightens pores and reduces inflammation, making your skin noticeably brighter. The ground almonds exfoliate and smooth out wrinkles to help turn back the clock, too.

2 tablespoons grape seed oil
5 teaspoons ground almonds
1 teaspoon warmed honey
2 drops rose oil

Blend all ingredients together in a small bowl, then buff onto face and decolletage. Rinse with warm water.
