Face masks and scrubs are a good way to clean and hydrate our skin. The skin gets affected due to pollution and this deteriorates the skin.

The skin becomes rough, irritable and is more prone to acne. Skin polishing is a way to remove the upper dead skin of the body and giving it a shiny texture. We have a lot of beauty products in the market to attain polished skin but the products are expensive and full of chemicals. I don't say that natural products are not available, they are there in the market but cost a fortune. Also, it's not fully free of chemicals especially "paraben".

But that doesn't mean we cannot get good skin at home with home ingredients. We can easily make DIY facemask for skin polishing our face.

Items needed:

  1. Oats -1 tablespoon

  2. Gram flour ( besan) - 1 tablespoon

  3. Orange peel - 1 tablespoon

  4. Honey- 1/2 tbsp

  5. Sugar crystal - 1/2 tbsp

  6. Orange essential oil- 1 drop ( if available)

  7. Coconut oil- 2-3 drops

  8. Milk- 1-2 tbsp

  9. Turmeric- a pinch


  • Combine all the above ingredients to make a paste-like consistency.

  • Let it rest for a minute or so. Check consistency and add a few drops of water if it becomes too thick to ease application on the face.

  • Let it dry on your face for 10 minutes. When it's semi-dry rub it on in outward circular motions with your fingers.

  • The paste will start shedding and take the dead skin along with it.

  • Wash of nicely with water and dry with a soft towel.

  • Apply a moisturiser after this to make skin supple and soft.


  • The orange peel will polish the skin and give it a clear look.

  • The coconut oil and honey will hydrate the face and moisturise it deeply.
