I will share some very good homemade face scrubs for the oily to combination skin. These face scrubs are easy to prepare and won’t require more than 10 minutes. Even though you can buy a readymade face scrub from market there is nothing like using herbal, homemade chemical free face treatments as they show great results and do not have any side effects except for certain minor things that you need to keep in mind. Oily skin calls for extra efforts to cleanse and take care of it. Excessive sebum and dead skin cells cab make your oily skin a breeding place for bacteria to cause skin problems like acne, whiteheads, blackheads etc.
So here are the face scrubs for oily skin that you can make at home and try:
1. Papaya and Sugar Face Scrub for oily skin

3. Tomato and Oatmeal Face Scrub for oily skin
Another home made face scrub can be made from tomatoes which I feel is a powerful food item that can be used in beauty treatments in a lot of ways, just like Lemons. Take 2-3 teaspoonful of oatmeal into a bowl. Cut a tomato into half and squeeze the pulp and juice out of it into the bowl. If you feel use the other half part too.
