There are numerous skin care and beauty products available in the market for dry skin, but using a homemade skin care product has no match. They are free from chemicals and preservatives. Above all, they are made in front of your eyes with 100% natural products, so you can trust these products. I personally prefer using homemade products for my skin as it saves money, time and gives effective result whether it a moisturizer, cleanser or scrub.
Face scrub plays a very important role in your beauty regime. It takes away all the impurities from your skin while making it healthy, supple and youthful. Though there are many homemade scrubs for dry skin, I shall share my top 5 picks. These will not only clean your skin but will also take care of it.
Homemade Scrub For Dry Skin
1. Coffee Grounds Scrub:
Coffee grounds are good to revitalize all types of skin. They work very efficiently for dry skin. This is the simplest homemade face scrub for dry skin.
You just need to grind some coffee beans. You can also use the leftover grounds from your morning coffee. In 1 tbsp of coffee, add 1 tbsp of water. Mix well. Apply this mixture on your face and scrub it in a circular motion. Scrub for 4 – 6 minutes. Rinse it off. Pat your face dry. This will naturally exfoliate your skin by removing the dead skin cells from it, leaving it fresh and cleansed.
2. Cleansing Cream and Sugar Scrub:
Splash a little lukewarm water on your face. Using a soft cloth, gently scrub it to dry. Take 1 tbsp of cleansing cream in a bowl. Add 2 tbsp of fine ground sugar to it. Mix well to create a gritty paste. Apply this mixture on your face. Scrub it in circular motion. Try covering little lines, dry spots and side of the nose. Avoid applying it on your eyes. Now wet a soft washcloth with lukewarm water. Remove the scrub from your face by using the washcloth. Finish this scrubbing session by splashing cold water on your face. This scrub for dry skin will close your pores and freshen your face. Dry your skin using a soft towel.
3. Green Tea and Honey Scrub:
Green tea acts as an anti-aging agent for your skin. It helps in reducing blemishes and wrinkles and also repairs scar tissue.
Brew a mug of extra-strength loose green tea. Pour 1 tbsp of it into a bowl. Allow it to cool down for few minutes. Add 1 tbsp sugar into it. Stir well. Now pour 1 tbsp of honey to it. Mix thoroughly. Honey has great antibacterial and moisturizing properties. Apply this scrub on your face. Scrub all over your face focusing on the spots that are dry. Remove it using a washcloth. Rinse your face with cold water.
4. Coconut Oil and Lemon Scrub:
Coconut oil is a good age-old skin tonic while lemon exfoliates and softens your skin. Oil-based scrubs are best suited for dry skin.
Take ½ cup of coconut oil. If coconut oil is not available, you may use olive oil or almond oil in its place but use of peanut oil, vegetable oil or canola oil should be strictly avoided. Add 2 tbsp sugar to it and mix well. Now add 1 tbsp lemon juice to this mixture. This increases the cleansing properties of this scrub. Scrub it all over your freshly washed face. Wash it off by splashing cold water on your face.

5. Almond Meal Scrub:
Though almond meal is available in every store, you can also make it at your home easily. Just take raw almonds in a food processor and pulse until they have turned to a finely ground almond meal. Now in 1 cup of almond meal, add ½ cup of almond oil or olive oil. Add few drops of essential oils. Lemon, lavender, rose and other essential oils make this scrub more luxurious. Now scrub it all over your face. Wash it off using cold water and pat dry.
Aren’t these homemade scrubs just wonderful? And they are so easy to make. Why spend bucks on those chemically treated scrubs when one has a choice of using such natural and effective scrubs. What say?
