Ground oats till you get a coarse powder. Do not let them get too fine. Take these oats and add them to tomato pulp and mix well. Mix it till it forms a proper paste. The tomato pulp has natural bleaching properties, making it a very good ingredient for this natural scrub. Apply this paste onto your neck and leave it on for about 15 to 20 minutes. After this, wet your fingers slightly and start rubbing your neck by moving them in a circular motion. Do this for five to seven minutes and then wash it off with cold water.
This method is effective because the coarse oats are known to have exfoliating properties that will get the dead skin as well as dirt out of your neck. After washing it off, apply a moisturizer and massage the neck gently. Use this method twice or three times a week.

Apply this a couple of times in a week and you will soon notice the results. However, make sure you don’t step out into the sun directly after using the lemon juice as this can cause harm your skin rather than rectifying it.

I am a girl in my 20s, trying to discover myself in an exciting manner and wish to get surprised by every move of my life. Writing for me, I believe, relieves stress, helps me concentrate better, and lets me re-invent myself. It enchants me like meditation, which stimulates the deepest recesses of my brain and thus lets me harness the energy hitherto lying unused. It has the power to heal and to understand better. It broadens my vision and gives wings to figments of my imagination. I therefore believe in the power of analyzing myself and some day find a better human inside of me. My blog: Surbhi Bhatnagar.
