Scrubbing helps open up the blocked hair follicles. You can buy a good scrub from your local store or make one at home by mixing sugar, honey and oatmeal. Take 1/3 cup of oatmeal, ¼ cup of brown sugar and ¼ cup of honey. Mix the ingredients and apply small amounts on your skin. Massage gently for 5 minutes, and then rinse it off with warm water.
