Things that you need to make a face wash powder at home:

* Rolled oats powder – It is the best natural scrubber that can clean, smoothen and moisturise the skin all at once.

* Almonds (ground) – The exfoliant properties in this makes it a great agent in your skincare product.

* A pinch of turmeric – The anti-inflammatory and anti-septic properties in this helps in healing and giving a natural glow to your skin.

* Besan or gram flour – The granules in flour take out all the excessive oil from your pores, helping them to open up and breathe a little more.

* Lavender essential oil – Lavender suits more or less all skin types so it’s a safe option. It helps to remove acne marks, blemishes, calms inflamed and irritated skin.
