Are you looking for new face scrub ideas that won’t leave your wallet sore? Then you need to try making your own face scrubs right at home! With the winter season upon us, our skin tends to become drier.
Additionally, many of us are prone to breakouts, enlarged pores, blackheads, flaky skin, oily skin and more. And of course, putting harsh chemicals on our faces can cause more harm than good. For this reason, we have some amazing DIY face scrubs for your skin type that you can try now!
1. Anti-Aging Coffee Face Scrub
We all know that exfoliating the skin is a must-do skincare regime in order to keep our skin glowing, healthy. Exfoliating the skin also allows the skin to breathe, kill dead skin cells and reveal new skin cells.
To naturally exfoliate your face, coffee grounds are an excellent ingredient to add to a DIY face scrub. This homemade coffee face scrub from Freebie Finding Mom uses coffee, coconut oil and a bit of frankincense essential oil to leave the skin feel rejuvenated and fresh. Additionally, these ingredients help to fight wrinkles, inflamed skin and more.
2. Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Face Scrub
When you think charcoal, you probably think of barbecue and fire. But fear not, activated charcoal has amazing benefits for the skin. This activated charcoal exfoliating face scrub from Lives Simply is cane sugar, extra virgin olive oil and of course activated charcoal to leave the skin feeling refreshed, clean and revitalised.
Using a face scrub like this will make you feel like your having a pampering spa day, or it may remind you of making mud pies as a kid!
3. Lemon Face Scrub
It’s an age-old treatment to rub lemons on the face to brighten the skin’s complexion. And this DIY lemon face scrub from Primally Inspired is the perfect recipe for brightening the skin, evening skin tone and giving the skin a refreshed glow.

6. Sea Salt and Coconut Oil Face Scrub For Soft Skin
Himalayan pink salt has become incredibly popular over the last few years. Perhaps it’s the pretty colour that the salt sports, reminding us of pink clay or grapefruit. Additionally, coconut oil is well known and popularly used for strengthening the hair and when used on the skin, can naturally moisturise the skin wonderfully.
Combining these two, this coconut oil and sea salt face scrub from The Skinny Scout is incredible for moisturising the skin and leaving the skin with a healthy glow and feeling so very soft.
