I will give you recipes to make face scrubs at home. Travelling can attract a lot of dirt and pollution. Exfoliating your skin is important when you want to take care of your skin while travelling.
Normal to Dry Skin:
Make a paste of walnut powder and curd with one teaspoon honey. Apply and leave for 10-15 mins. Gently scrub and wash. Walnut will act as an antioxidant. The curd is full of good bacterias, so surely will help improve your skin texture. And honey will deeply moisturise the skin. Use a heavy moisturiser after exfoliating to avoid dryness.

Sesame seeds with milk and honey. Add them and make it into a paste. Apply and let it dry. Once dry, wash it and apply a heavy moisturiser to avoid dryness. You can also use face oils before applying moisturisers. It will keep your skin moisturised for a longer duration. Also, face oils will help the nutrition reach the deeper layers of your skin.
Make sure you don’t scrub for more than a minute.
Oily & Sensitive Skin:
Egg whites with papaya pulp and apply. Leave for 10 minutes. Gently rub and wash off. Papaya will help to lighten the skin and remove blemishes if any and egg whites have astringent properties that help shrink pores by tightening the skin. Even if you have an oily skin you still can use face oils and make your skin healthy.
Acne Prone Skin:
Kiwi and sugar and a few drops of olive oil will help reduce acne. Kiwi contains vitamin C and Vitamin E that act as antioxidants and will also boost your skin’s health. Sugar will act as a scrubber and remove dead skin and open pores. Olive oil will moisturise the skin.
These face scrubs and face washes will definitely give you a healthy skin. Just make sure to use them because travelling can do a lot of damage to your skin. It is better to take precaution than later popping pills for inflammations and infections.
