Last-minute outings can be fun but they can turn into a disaster when your skin is not ready for it. Here’s an instant DIY face scrub that will make your skin feel soft and fresh! This scrub will also leave your skin glowing in less than 20 minutes! All you need is

  • Fresh cream – 1 teaspoon
  • Sugar crystals – 1 teaspoon
  • Ice cubes – 2

How did I make it?

  • I simply mixed cream with sugar and massaged my face in clockwise and anti-clockwise directions for 5 minutes. I then allowed the scrub to stay on my face for 10 minutes and then used ice cubes to remove the scrub off my face. If ice cubes are tough to handle, then you can replace ice cubes with cold water to remove the scrub off the face.
  • To complete my DIY treatment, I then used a thin layer of skin lightening gel and serum to remove the greasy effect and to remove the odor of the scrub. The gel and serum have to be washed off with cold water after leaving it for 5 minutes.
  • Also, remember NOT to use a face wash or soap at least for 6 hours after application for best results!

Beauty and wellness | Lighten Dark Underarms

Being acidic, lemon is widely used in cooking and skincare treatments. While an excess of acidic consumption can harm the body, using the right amount of lemon juice can do wonders to the skin. Lemon not only helps in fighting infections but also helps in improving the texture and tone of the skin, which is often damaged by excessive usage of harsh chemicals.

A lot of women, including me, face issues with certain body parts being darker, resulting in uneven skin tone. Having dark underarms is the most common skin problem and is common among men and women. Fortunately, everything has a time-consuming home remedy but guarantees a permanent result. Plus, being a home remedy, it is completely chemical-free and with zero side effects.

Using a chemical-free scrub in regular intervals will help out in lightening the skin tone and will also help in eradicating skin infections if any.

What did I use?

  • Baking soda – 1 tablespoon
  • Lemon juice – as required
  • Turmeric – a pinch

How did I make it?

  • I took a clean mixing bowl and combined baking soda and turmeric. I then added lemon juice to form a thick paste. Once formed, I allowed it to rest for about 2 minutes before application.
  • That’s it! I used the paste as a scrub and applied it on my underarms and massaged it in a circular motion for 5 minutes. Post massage, I allowed it to rest on my skin for another 10 minutes and then washed it with cold water.
  • To avoid irritation caused due to the acidic nature of lemon and baking soda, I applied a thick layer of skin lightening gel to soothe the skin.
