There's nothing that a good face scrub can't fix! Well that's not entirely true, but they certainly can help with a lot of skin concerns, from blackheads to pigmentation. That's why I've put together this guide to the very best natural face scrubs for every skin type.
Whenever my skin starts to look really dull and tired, I can always rely on my favourite natural facial scrubs to help bring it back to life! Face scrubs and liquid exfoliants can actually work so many wonders for our skin, including everything from removing blackheads to fading hyperpigmentation. Of course not every scrub suits every skin type though—some of us need a harsh, thorough scrub while others will benefit from a more gentle formula, but no matter your skin type, there's a natural face scrub to suit your skin concerns! No microbeads here either—all of these scrubs use natural ingredients like Grape Seeds and Sugar for their exfoliating benefits.
Best Natural Scrubs and Exfoliants for all Skin Types
100% Pure Acai Pulp Facial Scrub
My personal favourite natural face scrub is the 100% Pure Acai Pulp Facial Scrub because it is super concentrated! It contains organic Acai Berry Fruit Extract which is rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fatty acids, plus it has anti-inflammatory properties and can even help to target hyperpigmentation for brighter, more even-toned skin! If that wasn't enough, it also contains organic Goji Fruit Extract which is a potent source of brightening Vitamin C, as well as Grape Seeds to help buff and polish skin. Since this scrub is so concentrated, it should only be used on wet skin.
Acure Brightening Facial Scrub
For those after a truly deep cleanse, I recommend the bestselling Acure Brightening Facial Scrub. Formulated to help lift and remove build-up, dirt and grime from deep within the pores, it's packed with lightly abrasive Walnut Shell Flour, French Green Clay and Lemon Peel Granules. This natural scrub is perfect for anyone with blackheads or large pores as it gives a deep and thorough exfoliation. Use on wet skin around three times per week for best results.
The Beauty Chef Probiotic Skin Refiner
Not technically a scrub, but rather a liquid exfoliant, The Beauty Chef Probiotic Skin Refiner contains natural AHAs such as Lactic Acid to help dissolve dead and dry skin cells and fade hyperpigmentation. This brightening formula is packed with powerful fermented ingredients and was actually created by accident during the bio-fermentation of The Beauty Chef inner beauty powders. It can be used every day as a toner – apply after cleansing and before moisturising, morning and night.
KORA Organics Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask
The KORA Organics Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask is especially good for oily and combination skin types as it's loaded with purifying ingredients such as Peppermint and Rosehip Seeds to help unclog pores and combat congestion. This refining polish is actually a 2-in-1 facial scrub and mask, so it can also be left on skin as a powerfully brightening face mask thanks to revitalising ingredients such as Turmeric, Papaya Enzymes and Noni Extract. Use on damp skin 2-3 times weekly.
Acne Prone Skin
Pollen Botanicals Honey & Sugar Exfoliator
Specially designed to help control breakouts and hormonal acne, the Pollen Botanicals Honey & Sugar Exfoliator is a gentle yet thorough scrub, packed with exfoliating Sugar granules, AHA-rich Kiwi & Papaya Fruit Extracts and soothing, antibacterial Organic Raw Honey to soften and calm skin. Easily dissolved and removed with water, this smoothing formula can be used once a week.
Madara Exfoliating Oil-To-Milk Scrub
Perfect for dry and dehydrated skin types, Madara Exfoliating Oil-To-Milk Scrub is a luxuriously rich, oil-based formula designed to polish and soften skin without stripping its natural moisture. Apricot Kernel Oil and Oat Oil molecules actually bind to dirt and impurities, while tiny Jojoba Wax beads help to refresh clogged pores, remove dead skin cells and leave skin smooth and bright. Use on dry skin, then add a small amount of water to transform it into a milky solution which is easily rinsed off.
Pai Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator
The Pai Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator is specially made for sensitive skin types, formulated to be extra gentle thanks to small Kukui plant and Jojoba Beads which lightly roll over the face in gel form. This nourishing formula also contains hydrating Sweet Almond, Avocado and Apricot Oils to soothe and soften skin, and changes into a milky liquid when water is added to easily wash away after use.
Eco by Sonya SKIN COMPOST Super Acai Exfoliator
The Eco by Sonya SKIN COMPOST Super Acai Exfoliator is a great exfoliant for all skin types, enriched with skin-reviving fatty acids and antioxidant-rich vitamins from powerful ingredients like Acai Fruit, Coconut Oil, Chia Seed Oil and Magnesium Salts. This rich and creamy scrub is designed to help refresh and rejuvenate skin, reduce signs of ageing and leave the complexion moisturised. Use on clean, dry skin once or twice a week.
