All Natural Facial Cleansers You'll Love

All Natural Facial Cleansers You'll Love   via
Today I have guest Emerald from Pink Balloons For Lunch sharing some all natural facial cleaners that you'll love!

Your face is the first thing that people see and a clear complexion allows us to make a great first impression. After all, the face is the first to show signs of aging with wrinkles, age spots and dark circles. Most people head to their local stores to pick up a bottle of facial cleanser, never realizing that all they need for glowing and radiant skin can be found right in their kitchen. Not only are homemade facial cleansers effective, but they are safer and more nourishing to your skin than store bought cleansers. Check out the recipes below to give your skin the tender loving care it deserves!

Avocado & Honey Facial Cleanser 

1/2 cup Avocado Oil
3 Tbsp. Honey
2 Tbsp. Castile Soap  

Directions: Whisk all ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl and transfer to a small squeeze pump. Use warm water to wet your face, then pour a small amount of cleanser into hands and then gently massage cleanser into face. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Milky Oats Facial Cleanser

1 Tbsp. Powdered Milk
1 Tbsp. Organic Oatmeal
1 Tsp. Distilled Water

Directions: Grind oatmeal in a food processor until it becomes a fine powder. Then add the oatmeal and the powdered milk into a bowl together. Add a teaspoon of distilled water and mix with spoon until your desired texture is reached. Add another teaspoon of water to thin out if the mixture is too thick. Wet your face with warm water, then massage the paste into your skin in small circles until your entire face is covered. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Whipped Coconut Oil Facial Cleanser

1/2 cup Organic Coconut Oil
1/4 cup Organic Castor Oil

Directions: Place your coconut oil in a medium sized bowl and use a mixer to whip the oil until it's light and fluffy. After the coconut oil is whipped, gently add the castor oil and continue to mix for about a minute. Use a small amount of the mixture and massage into your skin in circles, concentrating on problem areas. Then take a hot washcloth (not too hot) and use it to gently wipe the oil from your skin.

Honey Yogurt Purifying Cleanser

4 Tbsp. Honey
4 Tbsp. Yogurt
2 Tsp. Lemon Juice

Directions: Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Pat cleanser onto face in upward circular motions over your entire face. Rinse face with warm water and pat dry.

Homemade cleansers are excellent for skin and you can control the ingredients so you know exactly what's going on your face. I would also recommend following up with a moisturizer for all recipes except the Whipped Coconut Oil Facial Cleanser. There are enough oils left behind that a moisturizer may not be needed. 

Have you ever made your own facial cleanser? What was your experience?

    1. LOL! These ingredients does make you want to eat it.

    2. I agree these definitely would be safer than store bought cleansers and they seem easy enough to make!
