10 Natural facial cleanser
Milk as a facial cleanser? Absolutely, yes! It benefits both outside and inside of your body. It’s always a good idea to use whole milk because the fat and proteins will keep your skin moisturized and plump. Plus– the lactic acid in milk works in removing dead skin cells, too! Simply pour enough amount into the palm of your hands, you can always freely decide how much you want to use, so go ahead. Massage it gently into your face in a circular motion.

Those who have sensitive and acne prone skin will surely benefit from using this because honey has a healing properties that helps in reducing redness and soothes irritated skin.

Let it on your skin for 15-30 minutes, then rinse with warm water. You’ get an instant soft and well moisturized skin!
I said yogurt, I mean plain yogurt and not the flavored one. Once again, those who have sensitive and acne prone skin will benefit from using it as a facial cleanser. Why? Because it exfoliates the skin in a gentle manner while clearing up those annoying blemishes and skin discolorations. Yogurt also offers a natural way to reduce wrinkles! Prepare 2 teaspoons of yogurt, if you’re not allergic to lemon, you can add 2 drops into your yogurt and mix them. Apply it on your face and leave it for 20 to 30 minutes or until it dries. Rinse with warm water while giving your face a gentle massage in a circular motion.
You love eating oatmeal? Well, your skin also do. Feed your skin with oats and you’ll get a soft and well moisturized skin in return. It exfoliates the skin gently thus perfect for those who have sensitive skin. You will only need 1 tablespoon of oatmeal and soak it in a small amount of warm water, then mix them well to make a paste. You can also add drops of lemon if you want. Massage the mixture onto your face and use warm water in rinsing your delicious facial cleanser. 🙂
The protein and sulfur in eggs make it a great facial cleanser for those who have acne prone skin. Egg yolks have natural cleansing properties while egg whites take charge in toning the skin. Whip one egg in a small bowl, then start applying it into your face and allow it to dry. Wash it off with warm water and give it a gentle massage in a circular motion.
Sugar cleanses and exfoliates the skin while giving it a lovely shine. Use a very fine sugar and mix it with a small amount of water, enough to make a paste mixture. If you have a dry skin, you may want to use olive oil instead of water. And for oily skin, you can use aloe vera instead. You can also add lemon if you want. Massage the mixture into your face– gently, okay.. Next is to rinse it off with a warm water.
Avocado is rich in vitamin E and is best in conditioning not only for hair but also for the skin! It nourishes, moisturizes and cleanses skin while making it soft. Simply mash a ripe avocado in a small bowl and combine it with lemon. Apply it on your face and let your skin absorb the moisture for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water, and you’ll notice a well moisturized skin afterwards!
If you’re someone who wants to have regular exfoliation with your skin, this one might be good for you. The bromelain in pineapple works as anti-inflammatory, which is a plus for those who have acne prone skin. Dead skin cells are also targeted with this pineapple facial cleanser. Rub a small slice of pineapple into your dry skin, or if you want to use the juice, you can do so, and apply it on your face and avoid the eye area. Let it stay on your skin for 5 minutes then rinse with warm water. This will make your skin looking fresh and fair.
Cucumber is well known for its soothing and cooling effect. Aside from that, it sends the puffines away! Those who have sensitive and acne prone skin will enjoy it because it can reduce the redness and inflammation. Cut 2 thin cucumber slices and set it aside. Pulse the remaining cucumber in a blender, then apply it on your face. When you’re done, cover your eyes with 2 slices of cucumber, and leave it for 10-15 minutes and relax.. When time is up, rinse it with warm water.
And this is one of my favorite facial cleanser! If you have oily skin, this will also help you with the oily issues. Why? Because oil removes oil. For oil cleansing, you can use any or blend them together if you want– virgin coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, or almond oil. I usually use castor oil, sometimes coconut oil. You’ll simply apply the oil to your face and massage it in a circular motion. Let it on your skin for a few minutes then rinse off with warm water. This will make your skin feeling soft and more radiant. And if you are bothered with your post acne marks, castor oil will help to fade them away!
Still hesitant and worries about removing heavy makeup? You can always use oil before starting to wash your face with any of the mentioned cleanser, see– still natural and no chemical!
