The self-named yogurt scrub for acne defines that basis of the scrub is yogurt. Yogurt culture has many useful properties and acts as chemical peel. That allows using yogurt for face masks and facing scrubs.
What additional ingredients could be added to yogurt scrub for acne prone skin? Let say that should be products with antibacterial properties for preventing spread infection on the face.
There are many of them. I use baking soda and lemon essential oil for this scrub.
Baking soda has long used as simple home antiseptic. Soda lukewarm baths and compresses are very effective in contact with infected acne face.
About advantages and properties of lemon essential oil I’ve informed in detail in the article Lemon and yogurt facial mask. You can read it and make yogurt mask with lemon oil any time.
- 1 Tbsp of natural yogurt
- ½ tsp of baking soda
- 2-3 drops of lemon essential oil
The preparation of this scrub isn’t big deal. The products don’t require any pre-treatment.
Mix yogurt ( you can use greek yogurt if you like) and baking soda, add lemon oil.
Combine all together and scrub is ready.
Apply the mixture on your face with your fingertips. Do the tiny circular motion without pressure against the skin. Be careful spreading scrub on acne. Your deal is to exfoliate old skin cells and disinfect the acne areas. Don’t damage the surface of the skin. It may lead to the spread of infection.
Treat problem of face areas: forehead on the eyebrows, nose, and chin.
This scrub helps to get rid of blackheads on the skin.
Massage your face for 3-5 minutes. Rinse the scrub with a cotton pad and cool water after that.
Apply a moisturizer.
