Well, Well, Where do I start…
It’s been so long that I posted a DIY on my blog, thanks to my oversensitive, acne-prone skin! I have stopped using beauty products, it’s been years since I used scrubs and face packs and I didn’t even get a facial done for my wedding…
Now that the severe acne condition is gone (I still get one or two painful, stubborn ones every now and then), I have severe acne scars to deal with. In that journey, I am slowly introducing a few beauty products to my skin.
How I came up with this idea?
The ointment I use for acne peeled off my skin badly and there were dry, itchy patches here and there. I have bought castor oil for my hair care and came to know that it can be used for curing dry skin and scars as well. So, one fine day, I decided to give an oil massage to my face with castor oil. While massaging, I could see that the dry patches are shedding off. But the problem was, how to get rid of the oil completely off my face. Washing my face more than once with a face wash would make the oil massage of no use. That is when I realized that I needed a scrub, followed by washing my face with a face wash to completely get rid of the oil. As I didn’t have a scrub with me, I decided to DIY it which actually turned in to a 3-in-1 Wash Scrub Mask.
3-in-1 Wash Scrub Mask DIY
1. Take a spoon full of rice powder.
3-in-1 face wash, scrub, mask… What’s spl about it?

5. You can immediately wash it off or keep it for some more time as a mask and wash it off
6. Voila! Touch and feel your baby soft skin!
A few points to consider,
- Though the rice powder looks like it’s finely milled, it is abrasive enough to act as a scrub. I have used the store bought one. You can make it on your own as well by grinding raw rice in a mixer.
- If you find the rice powder more abrasive, you can increase the quantity of face wash to balance it out.
- Use a plain facewash without any granules in it. I have used the Neutrogena one here. If you have a dry skin, you can go for a cream based face wash.
- I have extremely sensitive skin and this 3-in-1 Wash Scrub Mask didn’t react adversely on my skin. However, be precautious while trying this out.
Only a few 3-in-1 Wash Scrub Masks are available on the market and they are expensive. This DIY is the best alternative. Do try it out and let me know how it works for you.
