This scrub helps in giving healthy glow to the skin,removes dirt and blackheads.
Removes tan too

Some details about the ingredients
Oats are the best source of amino proteins and are actually considered to be one of nature's most fabulous aphrodisiacs.Greeks and romans used to have oats for bathing
Oats are great for exfoliation and have actually been clinically shown to help heal dry, itchy skin.

Yoghurt helps in reducing pores also helps in removing tan and give skin a health glow.

Lemon's juice is best for skin lightening and always use lemon with honey or yoghurt as lemon juice dries the skin.
