If you’re hoping for the monsoon to be some sort of a relief after those summer induced skin problems, think again. Monsoon brings with it humidity and moisture which leads to a whole new bunch of skin conditions.  

The only solution to keep your skin clear and healthy during the rains is to follow a good skincare routine. Scrubbing is one such element in any ideal monsoon skincare routine. This helps exfoliate your skin thoroughly thus clearing away dirt and dead cells. Try any of these monsoon friendly homemade body scrubs this season for flawless and healthy skin.

Oatmeal scrub

Mix together half a cup of oatmeal with half a cup of yogurt and then add a few drops of vitamin E oil to it. Mix them all together and use it to scrub your body.

Brown sugar scrub
Mix together brown sugar and olive oil till it form a thick granular paste. Now use it to scrub your body thoroughly.

Lemon scrub

Mix together lemon juice, honey and a spoon of sugar to make an exfoliating body scrub. 

Papaya Scrub

Mash together a few pieces of papaya and mix a spoon of brown sugar to it, along with another spoon of coarse oatmeal. Use this scrub on your face and body to cleanse your pores.

Note: 
Ensure that you don’t exfoliate more than two times a week. Also remember to scrub only for two minutes as excessive scrubbing can irritate your skin. And most of all make sure that you moisturise your skin well after scrubbing.
