Brewer's yeast is a little known super ingredient in homemade facial scrubs. The yeast kills bacteria on your skin; bacteria that can clog your pores and cause blemishes. If you already have blemishes, the yeast boosts your white blood cells to heal acne.
Don't confuse brewer's yeast with active dry yeast. Active dry yeast is what you buy in the grocery store to make bread. Brewer's yeast can be found on online or at most health food stores. Brewer's yeast contains B-vitamins and many minerals that active dry yeast doesn't have.
The oatmeal is a gentle, natural way to exfoliate. It sloughs off dead skin cells that can collect in your pores and cause acne.
