3 Homemade Facial Cleansers*this is a guest post by Selina Torres*

A few months ago I decided that I was done washing my face with fancy (and ridiculously expensive) store bought facial cleansers. I only have so much cash and I need to save it for the important things in life like nail polish, designer chocolates and absolutely anything drenched in sparkles.

Therefore, in the interest of pinching pennies and eliminating some unnecessary chemicals from my life, I decided to make my own homemade facial cleansers.

For the good of all woman-kind, I have decided to share these cleansers with the world. You’ll thank me later.

Effortless Honey Cleanser

I’m not going to lie, the first thing that drew me to this cleanser was the fact that it’s made out of food.

I really, really like food. I mostly put food in my face, but I decided I wasn’t opposed to putting it on my face too. Especially when I found out that honey promotes skin regrowth, increase elasticity and holds moisture in. It’s a superfood!

Also, this cleanser is outrageously easy.

Here’s What You Need:

  • Raw Honey

Here’s What You Do:

Massage a small amount of honey (slightly less than a teaspoon) onto damp skin for about a minute and then rinse with warm water. It’s just that easy! Keep a jar by your sink and you’re good to go.

Scrumptious Oatmeal Cleanser

Mmm, this cleanser smells like breakfast. I have zero problems with that. Actually, I have a slight problem as I have to fight the urge to eat it.

Oatmeal softens, nourishes and moisturizes your skin. It’s the perfect ingredient for a facial cleanser.

Here’s What You Need:

  • 1 Part Baking Soda
  • 2 Parts Oatmeal
  • Food Processor/ Mortar & Pestle
  • Small Airtight Container

Here’s What You Do:

You’ll need to grind up your oatmeal. You can use a food processor or mortar & pestle to get good results. Or you can be like me and use a freezer bag and rolling pin, eventually give up on the rolling pin and resort to a hammer.

Needless to say, my oatmeal wasn’t very ground up and my counter top will never be the same.

Mix your oatmeal and baking soda and store them in an airtight container. Whenever you want to cleanse, mix about half a teaspoon with some warm water and rub onto your face. Rinse and pat dry.

It works wonderfully, even when clumpy!

Refreshing Lemon & Yogurt Cleanser

Every time I apply this cleanser, I swear I can actually feel my face getting healthier. The combination of ingredients exfoliates, fights acne and soothes sensitive skin. And it just feels so wonderfully invigorating.

Here’s What You Need:

  • 8 tbsp. Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed only)
  • 8 tbsp. Plain Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. Tea Tree Oil
  • Plastic wrap
  • Small Airtight Container

Here’s What You Do:

There are some actual steps on this one. Hang in there with me, it’s not too hard.

1. Mix the lemon juice and yogurt in a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
2. Stir in the tea tree oil.
3. Spoon the mixture into your handy dandy container.
4. Refrigerate for another hour.

Now your cleanser is ready for use! Apply to your face, let it sit for five minutes and rinse. Make sure to give it a good stir before each application and refrigerate when not in use.

I use all three of these homemade facial cleansers regularly, switching every few weeks because I like them all and can’t pick just one. I’m pretty indecisive and my skin is fairly forgiving.

Oh, and that thing I said about thanking me? You can do that now. *wink*
