What are the Home Remedies for Face Scrub?

Creating your own face scrub at home can be a fun and effective way to exfoliate your skin and remove dead skin cells. Here’s a simple recipe for a DIY face scrub using natural ingredients:


  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar (white or brown sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (or olive oil)
  • Optional: a few drops of essential oil (such as lavender, tea tree, or lemon) for fragrance and added benefits


  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the granulated sugar and coconut oil.
  2. Stir the mixture until it forms a thick, grainy paste. If the mixture is too dry, add more coconut oil. If it’s too wet, add more sugar.
  3. Add a few drops of your chosen essential oil, if desired, and mix well to distribute the fragrance evenly throughout the scrub.
  4. Your DIY face scrub is now ready to use!

To use the face scrub:

  1. Wet your face with lukewarm water to dampen the skin.
  2. Take a small amount of the face scrub and gently massage it onto your face using circular motions, avoiding the delicate eye area.
  3. Continue massaging the scrub into your skin for 1-2 minutes, focusing on areas of rough or dry skin.
  4. Rinse your face thoroughly with warm water to remove the scrub.
  5. Pat your face dry with a clean towel and follow up with your favorite moisturizer to lock in hydration.

You can use this DIY face scrub 1-2 times per week, depending on your skin type and sensitivity. Be sure to store any leftover scrub in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for future use.

Note: Always perform a patch test on a small area of your skin before using any new skincare product, especially if you have sensitive skin or allergies. If irritation occurs, discontinue use immediately.
