Let’s talk DIY face cleansers. If you’re an ardent reader of our articles, by now you know that we are all about DIY. Because, why spend money when you can make something yourself. In fact, something that will serve the same purpose better? Take for instance face cleansers. You definitely need to cleanse your face to get rid of all the dirt and excess oil which may cause your pores to clog. Using soap on your face is not advisable because it will rid it off the natural oils, leaving your face extremely dry. That being said, you need to get a good cleanser, and one that works perfectly for your skin type. If you do not have one, you can always consider these DIY options if you run out of your cleanser, or once in a while, switch from the chemical-based cleansers to something natural. It’s always advisable to have a one week of all-natural skin care routine.

1. Raw honey.

For people with dry and problematic skin, raw honey can be very beneficial as it contains anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and healing properties. It helps clean out the pores and retain moisture as it’s a humectant. You just have to ensure that you’re using natural pure honey and not adulterated honey so that you get the benefits. When showering, wet your face a little bit then apply a little bit amount of honey, massage and rub it all over the face then leave it on as a mask as you wash the rest of your body then rinse off with warm water.

2. Oatmeal.

Oat meal is another great natural cleanser because it contains cleaning properties. It’s also anti-inflammatory, it helps exfoliate the skin and lock in the moisture. What you wanna do is blend a little bit of oatmeal till you get a powdery consistency, scoop some of that powder with your hand, add a little bit of water then use it to massage your face gently. This is great for people with sensitive skin, oily or dry flaky skin and will leave your face nice and soft.

3. Natural yogurt.

It contains lactic acid which helps to gently exfoliate the skin, tighten the pores, reduce the appearance of fine lines and it’s also very hydrating. To get the best results, always ensure that you’re using plain whole milk yogurt. Massage a thin layer of yogurt onto your skin, leave it on as a mask for a few minutes then wash it off.

4. Bentonite clay.

For a deep facial cleanse, bentonite clay is perfect. It penetrates deep into the skin and acts as a magnet for toxins and impurities. It also gently exfoliates and promotes blood circulation so this can be quite effective for acne prone skin too. You can mix it with natural apple cider vinegar or water. Simply mix with either of the two and apply on your face, leave it on for a few minutes as a mask then rinse off.
