Natural Beauty Cleanse

Ever wondered what goes into all those beauty and cleansing products you use? Come to think of it… you probably don’t want to know. Rather than worrying about that, why not make your own. That way you save all the packaging and transportation, plus you know that the only things going onto your face are 100% natural.

Here are some simple recipes for natural skin care treatments that you can make at home from the ingredients you probably already have in your cupboard:

Cleanser

  • ½ cup of oatmeal, ground
  • 2 tbls milk
  • 3 drops almond oil

Add ingredients together, smooth over face and rub in small circular motions massaging the face for two minutes. Wash off with warm water. Pat dry.

Exfoliant

  • ½ cup fine Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 2 tbls coconut oil
  • Squeeze of lemon

Mix ingredients together and smooth over face. Rub very gently in circular motions. Wash off with warm water. Pat dry.

Mask

  • 1 tbls clay
  • 1-2 teaspoons waterproof
  • Few drops of almond or sesame oil if particularly dry

Plus one of the following:

  • Red clay (suitable for dry and sensitive skins)
  • Green clay (draws toxins from the skin. Calm inflammations. Particularly good for acne)
  • Yellow clay (good for sensitive skin and decongesting)

Choose the clay that suits your needs. Place clay with water and oil to form a paste. Apply a thin layer over the face, leave for 10 minutes. Wipe off with a warm cloth.

Toner

  • Pure rosewater

Rosewater is a great astringent and commonly used as a toner. Be sure to buy pure rosewater from a good health food store or delicatessen. Place rose water in a small spray bottle. Spritz face after cleansing.

Moisturizer

  • ¼ cup jojoba oil
  • 1 tbls avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon rosehip oil

Place ingredients all together in a jar and shake. Use day and night on face and neck.

So there you go. Who needs expensive brand name beauty products when you can cleanse, exfoliate, mask, tone and moisturize with natural products you already have in your cupboard.
