I just hate summers to the core. There isn’t a single reason which would make me to do peace with summers. Nah! Not even one. People who love summers would be rolling their eyes. But seriously, how can someone love summers, Delhi’s summers?

Being oily skinned, i can never be in favour of summers. Sometimes i wish i could pack my bags and run off to the coolest place during these months L I hate my oily skin in summers. And humidity makes the situation worse.

Enough of my summer whining. Let me give you another easy way of making a moisturizing face scrub. This alternative for the regular face scrubs we use is only for oily skin girls or combination skin ones. Scrubbing is something we require in every season and is an essential part of our beauty care routine. We all have used various scrubs. It is very important to choose the right kind of scrub according to your skin type. Always use mild scrubs, no matter how often you scrub.

This homemade scrub for oily skin is very easy to make and would hardly take any of your time. Using natural and herbal ways has always been my forte and i think they are the best ways as there is minimal risk of side effects. I never encourage to stop the use of other products.


  • Honey
  • Lemon juice
  • Baking soda

Lets get started

All you need is 2 minutes of time from your tight schedule and everyone can afford to take out that much. After all it is all about our skin, our benefit.

Take a bowl and mix a teaspoon of honey. Squeeze out some lemon juice into the bowl. Always remember to use the honey and lemon juice in 1:2 ratio ( 1 teaspoon honey + 2 teaspoon lemon)

Mix it well and sprinkle some baking soda in the mixture. Do not exceed the quantity of baking soda. You can take 1 teaspoon, that would be enough.

Honey will adequately moisturize the skin while lemon juice will act as an astringent for the oily skin. Baking soda would provide the essential texture to the mixture to be used as a face scrub.

This is a mild face scrub and your oily skin will love it.
