Hello everyone! I am back with a new skin care post and this one is for all the oily skin beauties – Cucumber, Oatmeal and Aloe Vera Scrub for Oily Skin. Summer is a tough time for oily skin people. Not that the season spares normal or dry skin, but it is particularly harsh for oily skin. During summer, oily skin has to suffer a lot from acne, pimple, blackheads etc. The reason being that oily skin tends to get more oily in summer and therefore, attracts dirt and dust which results in blocked pores. And when pores are clogged with dirt, dust, dead skin cell and sebum, it makes an ideal environment for skin problems like acne, pimple, blackheads etc. A potent way to get rid of these skin issues is scrubbing. In this post, I will share a homemade scrub with you all – Cucumber, Oatmeal and Aloe Vera Scrub for Oily Skin.
Scrubbing helps to clean up all the pollutants deposited on the pores of the skin. Scrubbing is also important to get rid of excess oil from skin surface. People with oily skin will agree with me that more often than not, their skin becomes highly reactive to cosmetics and skin care products. Oily skin should be scrubbed at least 2-3 times a week, but using any store-bought scrub is pretty risky as they might just react with the skin and aggravate acne, pimples. In such scenarios, its better to take help of home remedies as they are much more effective and free from chemicals. Here I will tell you about one such home made scrub – Cucumber, Oatmeal and Aloe Vera Scrub for Oily Skin.
