Naturally Delicious Facial Wash

You don’t need to go further than your pantry for amazing skin. These simple ingredients are effective, safe and will leave you feeling pampered and fresh. Try out these great at home facial wash recipes.

1. Lemon and Sugar Scrub Combo

Lemons are incredible natural allies to our skin. They contain beta hydroxide acid (BHA) and alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). These exfoliate skin by removing dead cells, address discoloration and sunspots while increasing the production of collagen and improving overall skin texture. Sugar is a natural exfoliant helping to remove residue and dead cells.

Try this simple combination next time you wash your face:

  • Wet your face with warm water
  • Soak a cotton ball with organic lemon juice and add about half a tea spoon of granulated sugar
  • In a circular motion work over your entire face and neck
  • Rinse off with warm water and apply a natural moisturizer (such as organic rosehip seed oil).

2. Oatmeal and Olive Oil Cleanse

Oatmeal is another one of nature’s ingredients that does wonders for our skin. Aside from being a great gentle exfoliator oatmeal contains avenathramides, an antioxidant which is known for reducing redness and protecting the skin against UV sun damage. Oatmeal also contains saponins, a cleansing agent. There are many ways you can combine oatmeal to cleanse your skin but try this nourishing olive oil, water and oatmeal cleanse to start!

  • Using a coffee grinder or blender turn two table spoons of oatmeal into fine powder
  • In you hand or a small dish combine a bit of oatmeal with a little water and one tea spoon of olive oil until you mixture has turned into a paste
  • Apply the paste to your face and neck in a circular motion
  • rise with warm water

See how this simple oatmeal recipe makes your skin feel and if you’re feeling adventurous you can later add a little lemon juice and a dollop of honey to the mix next time.
