Moisturising oatmeal and almond scrub: 

This scrub removes dead cells and the oatmeal and almonds provide plenty of moisture.

Oatmeal is also soothing to sensitive skin.


1 teaspoon oatmeal

6 almonds

½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar

pinch of salt


Use a mortar and pestle or blender to crush the oatmeal and almonds until fine.

Add the apple cider vinegar and pinch of salt. Gently rub the mixture over your skin using damp fingers.

Rinse well with lukewarm water, then rinse once with cool water.


Test any ingredient on the inside of your arm to see if any itching or burning sensation occurs before using it on your face, advises Dr Gisela Kriek, who supplied the recipes for the scrubs and masks.
