4. Oats, honey and olive oil scrub- Honey is one of the most used ingredients for making a scrub, due to its anti bacterial, anti- inflammatory and healing qualities. For this you will have to cook the oats a little, just brown them a bit in a pan, dry oats will not give best results. After cooking them, add some honey and olive oil to it, apply the mixture on your face and let it stay. Do not add too much of oil or it will impact the consistency.
