Oatmeal and Brown Sugar Scrub for the Face

This mixture absorbs the excess oil from your skin and also helps in treating acne, because of its anti-inflammatory properties.

All the ingredients found in this scrub are what you already have in your kitchen they include egg, milk, brown sugar, oatmeal and more.

Remember to refrigerate this scrub if you don’t use it all at once. Also, know that it will last a few days in the refrigerator.


  • 1 cup oatmeal (not the instant kind) ground up in a food processor
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar (you can use white refined sugar if you don’t have brown sugar on hand)
  • 1 teaspoon sweet almond oil (you can substitute coconut or even olive oil)
  • 2 tablespoons regular milk (no fat-free here, please!)
  • The whites of one egg (you can use the whole egg if you please)


Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix. If the consistency isn’t spreadable, add a few more drops of oil.

To Use

Apply in a circular motion to the face and neck. Start judiciously—sugar and even oatmeal can lead to microtears in the skin and cause irritation. And if you’re new to physical exfoliation, it’s best to wash gently and avoid scrubbing altogether; this will help you make sure your skin is tolerant.

If you need more sugar, add it in. Your goal is to exfoliate the dead skin on your face.

Rinse with a warm washcloth.

Apply moisturizer to cleansed, scrubbed skin.

Oatmeal and Milk Scrub for the Face

Oatmeal cleanses away dead skin cells to reveal smooth and vibrant skin. while milk has a potent acid that exfoliates the skin when applied topically. It helps slough away dead skin cells with ease to reveal smooth and glowing skin underneath. This corrects uneven skin tone and reduces blemishes too.

I love this facial scrub because it includes only 4 ingredients, all of which can be stored in the pantry. You can mix the dry ingredients and store them in a Ball jar until you’re ready for the scrub.


  • 1/2 cup finely ground oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon cornmeal
  • water


Place all the dry ingredients in a Ziploc bag and shake, shake, shake. Pour the ingredients into a bowl.

To Use

Take about a tablespoon of the dry ingredients into your palm and add a few drops of water to create a paste. Massage over the face and neck. Let it dry and rinse with warm water. Follow with moisturizer.

  • 2 cups finely ground oatmeal
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup sunflower seed meal, or you can use brown sugar instead
  • 1 tbsp ground rosemary leaves (I use a coffee grinder for this)
  • 5 drops of your favourite essential oil (optional)
  • Whole milk, at least half a cup.


Place all the dry ingredients in a Ziploc bag and shake, shake, shake. Pour the ingredients into a bowl and then add a few tablespoons of milk until you have formed a paste. You do not need to measure it perfectly, just make sure it has the consistency of a paste.

The Benefits of Exfoliation

Use these scrubs once or twice a week to keep your skin in tip-top shape. Use year-round to exfoliate both your face and your body; in the winter, exfoliate a little less frequently and use a thick moisturizer to help keep everything balanced.
