7 Homemade Facial Cleansers
With so many facial cleansers available in the market, it often becomes difficult to choose one that works well for your skin. So, how do you opt for a safe route? Try homemade facial cleansers. They are safe, effective and make you glow better minus the chemicals. Here are some tried-and-tested options.
1. Oil does it well
Yes, you heard it right. All kinds of skin benefit from the goodness of good oils. For this cleansing method, mix extra virgin olive oil and castor oil in equal quantities. Apply the mixture on face including eye lids. Take a wash cloth and soak it in hot water (as hot as your skin can tolerate but remember the washcloth will cool down quickly). Place the soaked cloth on face and let the steam do its magic to your skin. After about a minute, wipe your face with the wash cloth to remove excess oil. This cleansing method also doubles up as an excellent makeup remover. Skin feels good, nourished and definitely not greasy.
2. Honey weaves magic
If your skin feels dry and you want a suitable cleanser to nourish it, try the honey with cream natural cleanser. Mix honey with cream or even a little whole milk, apply on your face and gently rub it in. Rinse off with warm water. Alternatively, if your sky is very oily; simply substitute milk or cream with lemon juice and watch out for miraculous results.
3. Honey rules again
This time honey mixes with egg yolk and almond oil to show the magic. Mix one teaspoon of honey and paste of 6 almonds to one egg yolk. Apply all over face and neck and leave it to dry. Wash with tepid water for amazing results. All three ingredients nourish skin and make you glow.
4. Kitchen to the rescue
Rush to the kitchen. Pick up half a cup of chickpea flour, half a cup of raw milk and one teaspoon of turmeric. Mix them well to form a paste. Apply the paste on your face and rinse it off in two minutes. The cleanser is all natural, easy to make and even rids skin of blemishes and acne since turmeric has the ability to kill germs.
