What you need in this case is a cleansing milk that is rich in scrubbing beads. The scrubbing beads remove freckles and peeling skin, while the cleanser gently removes dirt alongside moisturizing the blemished face. You might find such cleansing scrubs in the market, but they might cause further rashes and itching. And what we have listed below are 5 homemade cleansing scrubs and their benefits that will not harm your skin, but will remove all the blemishes.

Cleansing Scrubs For Oily Skin
Oily skin is one problem causing skin type that attracts unnecessary dust and makes the skin darker, alongside getting blemished and pigmented under the sun and bacterial infection. Have a look at the scrubs listed below to totally reform your skin and flaunt a blemish free fairer face.
1. Curd, Honey And Epsom Salt Cleansing Scrub:
This is an ideal cleansing scrub for oily skin that is blemished, and needs deep exfoliation. Curd will bleach the face and remove all acne marks and sun spots, Epsom Salt will work as a scrub and exfoliate sebum, blackheads, freckles and peeling skin, and honey will control oil formation while moisturizing the skin.
How To Make:
Crush Epsom Salt to semi-fine particles. Do not crush for as long as it becomes a powder. Take about one or one and a half teaspoon curd in a bowl and add half teaspoon honey in it. Blend the two until there are no lumps. Add 1 teaspoon crushed Epsom Salt in the curd and honey cleanser. Stir it once, and leave it undisturbed for 15 minutes.
Wet the face with tap water and massage it with the cleansing scrub for 10 minutes. Concentrate on the forehead and chin. Wash it with tap water and pat dry. Use it two times daily.
2. Ginger Juice, Sugar, Raw Milk And Turmeric:
This mild exfoliating scrub works best for oily skin with an active acne breakout that already has old acne spots and scars. Ginger juice deeply bleaches the face and works on the underlying skin layers to fade the spots, acne marks and black lines caused due to inflammation and itching. Sugar scrubs the epithelial cells and removes trapped oil, dirt, blackheads, whiteheads and sebum. Turmeric kills the acne causing bacteria while reducing discolouration, and raw milk adds moisture to the face so that it becomes smooth.
How To Make:
Crush ginger in a mixer with half teaspoon of distilled water. Filter the residue to get ginger juice. Add raw milk and a pinch of turmeric to ginger juice. Now add around 1 teaspoon sugar to the mixture and immediately start scrubbing your face.
Keep scrubbing for as long as you feel the sugar beads. Once they reduce in size or melt while massaging, wash the face with cold water. Use it once before going to bed daily. It will regulate oil formation throughout the night.
3. Almond Oil, Sandalwood Powder, Rose Water And Crushed Clove Beads:
Blemishes are not just acne spots, discolouration, freckles and sunspots, blemishes are also wrinkles and fine lines. This is one specific cleansing scrub that not just controls oil, but also removes brown spots, more popularly known as age spots, wrinkles and black cracks caused due to fine lines.
Sandalwood powder bleaches the skin and removes acne marks and pigmentation by improving blood circulation. Almond oil nourishes the skin and softens it, while rose water absorbs extra oil, leaving behind only essential oils. And clove beads work as scrubbing granules that actually remove blackheads, sebum and whiteheads while shrinking pores, wrinkles and fine lines.
How To Make:
Take 9 to 10 raw cloves and soak them in water overnight. Crush them using a baton stone to get fine moist clove beads. You can also crush them in a mixer. But take care that you do not turn them to powder. Take about 1 teaspoon of rose water in a bowl and add one fourth teaspoon sandalwood powder and 3 to 4 drops of almond oil in it. Beat well to form a runny paste. Now add the clove beads alongside the juice it produced while getting crushed in the bowl, and mix well.
Apply the scrub on wet face and massage for good 10 minutes with gentle hands. Do not press too hard. You will feel the clove particles against your skin. Concentrate on rubbing them on your forehead, t-zone and chin. Wash with tap water.
Cleansing Scrubs For Dry Skin
Now comes the tricky skin type that largely differs from oily skin, but creates almost similar trouble that is harder to combat. Explore the below listed 3 homemade cleansing scrubs to get rid of blemishes if you have dry skin.
4. Honey, Tomato Seeds And Crushed Rice Cleansing Scrub:
This is a strong bleaching scrub that increases the hydration level of shrunken skin cells and make them elastic and plump. Dry skin produces oil in abundance. Crushed rice beads remove trapped oil and dirt, and reduce sebum collection. And tomato beads bleach the epidermis and shrinks enlarged pores. They also reduce acne marks and pigmentation. Honey moisturizes the dry skin so that it doesn’t inflame due to deep scrubbing.
How To Make:
Crush raw white rice in a mixer. Make a semi coarse powder. Add about 6 to 7 drops of honey in half teaspoon rice powder and half teaspoon mashed tomato pulp with seeds. Mix and form a thick paste.
5. Honey And Oatmeal Cleansing Scrub:
This is a mild cleansing scrub for dry skin, not chapped skin. Oatmeal works as a mild exfoliator that scrubs away peeling skin and reduces blotches. And honey, an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent, removes dry skin acne by removing acne inflaming bacteria.
How To Make:
Soak oatmeal in water for 2 hours and use a batter stone to make fine paste out of it. Add honey and mix the two well. Extremely fine oatmeal granules remove peeling skin without resulting in bleeding. Massage it by pressing your fingers against the face. Continue for 5 minutes and wash with tap water. Use this scrubber at night. Repeat the same process everyday.
