Make Your Own Natural Facial Cleanser! When I find something that works, I hold on to it tight.
For the last few years I've experimented with making my own facial cleansers.
Many I've liked dearly, but there was always something I needed to tweak for my own personal 'aha!'
Well, I've found that coveted 'aha!'
This natural facial cleanser is both moisturizing, exfoliating and gentle. It can be smoothed on like a mask for deep pore detoxification or it can be rubbed in tiny circles over the face and rinsed off directly to reveal clear, clean, purified and soft skin.
There are many stars when it comes to the list of ingredients in the formula for this natural facial cleanser: green clay (detoxifies), turmeric (an anti-inflammatory), coconut oil (cleanses and moisturizes), lavender (calms, exfoliates and smells DELIGHTFUL!)....the list goes on...
This natural facial cleanser clears blemishes, is anti-aging, moisturizes without being oily, and is detoxifying. Really, what more could you want?
Here's what you need:
2 tablespoons French green clay
1 teaspoon finely ground lavender
1 teaspoon finely ground rosebuds
1/2 teaspoon finely ground orange peel
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
3 teaspoons coconut oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
* I stored my concoction in a 2 oz. cobalt glass jar. Any jar will do really, old baby food jars, recycled minced garlic jars etc., but if the jar isn't tinted you want to store away from direct sunlight (don't set on your bathroom window ledge, tuck away in the cabinet).
Combine your dry ingredients, then add your oils and mix until uniform. This will happen quickly and the mixture holds it's consistency without much effort.
Remember, and this is super important, to finely grind your lavender, rosebuds and orange peel. You want gentle exfoliation, not microdermabrasion (gasp).
How do I finely grind lavender, rosebuds and orange peel? A coffee grinder should do the trick without any problem.
Once you make this natural facial cleanser, let me know what you think!
