When it comes to having smooth and pretty skin, you don’t really need to spend a lot on beauty products because you can actually make your own facial wash at home. Making your own facial cleansers give you complete control on what goes in your cleanser which means you can save your skin from side effects caused by chemicals present in many skin care products.
With that being said, here are a few homemade face wash recipes that you can start with.
- Apple cider vinegar cleanser. Apple cider vinegar is one of the best ingredients that you can use on your skin as it has the abilitiy to restore the pH levels of your skin. This means that your skin will not break out in acne often and it can even prevent your pores from being clogged with dirt, sweat, and oil even. Applying apple cider vinegar on your skin can also stop your skin from becoming too dry or too oily. All that you have to do is to mix one part apple cider vinegar with two parts water and mix them well. Dip a cotton ball into the mixture and apply on your face.
- Clay and honey face wash. This facial wash recipe is suitable for all kinds of skin as it can prevent inflammation and will leave your skin quite clean afterwards. You will need a small jar that has a wide mouth, honey to fill up to ¾ of your small jar, tea tree or lavender essential oil, Kaolin, Bentonite, Rhassoul, or French Green clay, and a glass bowl to mix the ingredients in. Just mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of clay with about ¼ cup of honey using a whisk or fork until the two ingredients are combined properly. Add the essential oils one at a time. You can start by adding about 2 drops of lavender and 5 drops of tea tree oil or vice versa, whichever you prefer. Mix them well before transferring to your small jar. Wash your face with warm water first to help open the pores then apply the mixture evenly. Massage it in a circular motion for a full minute then allow it to set for about 20 minutes. If you don’t have the time, you can wash it immediately using warm water.
- Yogurt facial cleanser. Here is another natural facial cleanser that will work perfectly with your beauty regimen. This is due to the fact that yogurt contains lactic acid and protein which are both needed for boosting one’s skin. The lactic acid can help with exfoliation while the protein ensures that the pores of your skin are tight to minimize the presence of fine lines. All that you have to do is to apply a small amount of yogurt on your skin in a circular motion until you have covered your face and neck. Leave it on for a few minutes then wash it off using warm water. Pat your skin dry with a towel.
- Chamomile and oat facial cleanser. It’s high time to stop using soap when caring for your skin because you can check your kitchen cabinets for the perfect skin cleanser. The combination of chamomile and oat not only helps get rid of any impurities on your skin but it can also improve your skin’s condition from the inside out. For this recipe, you will need ¼ cup of dry rolled oats that are uncooked, 1 tablespoon of Bentonite clay, 1 teabag of organic chamomile tea, and a glass jar to store your cleanser. Grind the rolled oats using a spice grinder or coffee grinder until the oats become fine powder. In the coffee grinder, add a teaspoon of the oat powder and the contents of your chamomile teabag. Grind once more until the ingredients become fine powder. Stir the bentonite clay, chamomile powder, and oat powder until you reach the desired consistency. To use this treatment, you will need to wash your face with warm water then apply about half a teaspoon of this facial wash and massage for a minute. Wash afterwards.
