I love homemade facial cleansers and scrubs. It's fun trying different recipes to see which ones work well.
While using a store bought cleanser is a fine - it's nice to use a natural cleanser once or twice a month....
Especially ones that contain natural fruit acids for a really deep cleaning.
Home cleansers are also a great option if your skin is very sensitive - because you're in control of the ingredients.
So let's get started and mix up some natural scrubs and cleansers........
One of the reasons homemade cleansers are helpful for a beautiful complexion is that many foods and fruits found in your kitchen contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHA).
AHAs are found in a number of simple foods like milk, sugar, lemon juice, pineapple, vinegar, and tomatoes…to name a few.
What makes AHAs so special? Well, they help to gently dissolve the "glue" that holds dead cells together - making it easier to exfoliate them revealing clearer, cleaner skin and pores.
And this also
allows anti-aging creams and facial moisturizers to penetrate
better.........for better results.
It is reported that one of Cleopatra’s natural beauty secrets involved the use an AHA homemade facial mask and baths made of milk.
An AHA type homemade facial cleanser is also helpful for oil complexion because it helps soften and clear blackheads.
This homemade cleanser for dry skin is really easy to make.
Don't forget to apply a moisturizer right after cleansing and while your face is still slightly damp. A really healthy one to consider a vitamin enriched moisturizer that contains skin healing Argan Oil, Borage Oil, and other nutrients to sooth and hydrate.
Make sure to rinse very well in cool water and apply a good oil reducing moisturzer. While too much oil may be your problem, it is still important to keep your face properly hydrated.
With a normal complexion you can pretty much use any type of AHA facial or cleanser and just add some type of homemade abrasive ingredient such as crushed almonds, oatmeal, sugar, or baking soda. Good sources of AHAs include:
Mix these ingredients to form a paste and scrub the face. Make sure to rinse well and follow with a moisturizer.
Tip: Using a wash cloth will give even more exfoliating results.
Special Homemade Facial Cleanser For Acne
This homemade cleanser is great for acne and breakouts because pineapple juice also has anti-inflammatory properties along with enzymes like bromelain which help digest dead protein (dead cells).
Note: Test this cleanser in a small area first. Even a homemade face wash for acne prone complexion can cause irritation so be gentle and test first.
