DIY Natural homemade face scrub for acne marks, pigmentation & skin discoloration

I had huge acne problem when I was a teenager and I used to hate it as these used to leave the scars and marks behind. I too wanted to have that flawless skin which most of my friends had. I went to many dermatologists and also tried many home remedies but nothing worked. Dermatologist used to say that these are due to hormonal changes, which happen during teenage so no particular medicine can cure it.

Then I entered my twenties with all the acne scars :P Alas!! Again I got hit by chicken pox last year, all those who read my other blog "myglossyaffair" know how much did I suffer from it. If you are new, you can read about it here "Worst horror of my life - chickenpox". My case was so severe that even when I got well, I was again left with so many chickenpox scars, specially on face.

I know that a beautiful heart is more important than a beautiful face, but I love makeup. And with all those scars, I had to work a lot only for base and it was very time consuming too. So, I started to look something which can cure my remaining acne scars and chickenpox marks too. It was like trial and error as not all the remedies which are given online really work. 

So, today I am sharing with you the recipe of Oats face scrub/ face mask which really worked for me. It helps lighten and remove acne scars, chicken pox marks, pigmentation, remove tanning, skin discoloration and also many other skin problems.

It is very easy to use with all the ingredients available at home. What you need to make this scrub:

- Oats/oatmeal
- Raw milk or warm water

 That's all. you don't need to gather too many ingredients.Take almost 2 tbsp raw oats or oats flour and soak it in warm water. If you have dry skin then you can use warm milk instead of water. Keep it aside to cool down.

How to apply:

- Apply it onto your face, focusing on the scars and gently rub for 5-10 minutes.
- I prefer to apply it all over my face and leave for 10 minutes.
- Then I scrub it onto my face using circular motions with the help of water for almost 5 minutes.
- Wash away with warm water.

Use this remedy for 1 week and you will see the difference. You can use it daily, if you are not able to use it daily prefer using at least 4-5 times a week.

Tip: If you are allergic to any of these, don't use it.

As it is working for me I thought that all my readers should get benefited from this. 

As simple as that, nothing too elaborate.

I know many who suffer from acne marks/ chickenpox marks/ pigmentation and want to get rid of them or at least lighten them.

Try this simple remedy and I hope you will also get benefited from this.

Enjoy your day

Ciao :)

PS - This simple DIY has benefitted me in chickenpox marks. But for acne marks, they are very old, say almost 10 yrs and now they are not marks, they are pores. so, nothing works to fill those pores/ holes completely. But yes, this oat diy surely helped my skin look and feel better :).
