Homemade Face Wash Recipes


Homemade Face Wash RecipesSome face washes are foamy, some milky and for very dry skin – oily. Depending on your skin type you may like different consistencies of face wash.  But this simple recipe below is great for all skin types and ages. You can adapt the basic recipe to suit what feels best for your skin.

It’s very easy to make and leaves your skin feeling neither oily or dry but cleansed and, nourished.

Here’s what you will need for your homemade face wash recipe:

- an empty container to store your facial wash in.

- Extra Virgin Olive Oil OR Almond Oil or Argan Oil

- Castor Oil (alternatives are Avocado, Wheatgerm, Evening Primrose or Rosehip Oil which I will explain in a moment)

- Honey for acneic or really dry skin.

- Lemon or lime juice (few drops) for acne prone or oily skin.

-You can add a few drops of essential oil - I like lavender oil because it’s nicely scented, soothing and offers many other benefits for your skin – especially inflamed or acneic skin.

Normal Skin Face Wash:

Use a 50/50 mix of Castor/Olive Oil

Dry Skin Face Wash:

10% Castor oil (or alternative) and 90% other oil of your choice

Homemade Face Wash Recipes

Homemade Acne Homemade Face Wash

2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (this is very antibacterial, healing and protective for skin)

3 drops of Tea Tree Oil (very antibacterial and antimicrobial in general)

2 drops Lavender oil (soothing and antibacterial)

1 tablespoon Almond, Olive or other oil

1 teaspoon honey (use UMF active honey for a very potent recipe otherwise normal honey)

How to mix and apply your homemade facial wash:

Blend these together well and apply a small amount to your skin in a gentle upwards circular motion. Rinse off with tepid water – that’s it!

It’s super easy to make facial treatments at home from scrubs to moisturizers – my favorite recipes are serums. Many can be used as face cleansers AND as moisturizers.
