I’ll be honest here — I’m the kind of person who aspires to be someone that makes her own beauty products, but doesn’t usually get around to making it happen. I have all the best intentions but, at the end of the day, I end up getting lazy and buying something already pre-made and pre-packaged. But I’m working on changing that, and DIY natural facial cleansers are a great place to start.
There are lots of great reasons to make your own face wash. First of all, many store-bought cleansers contain harsh chemicals that aren’t actually all that great for your skin. Secondly, buying pre-made face washes can be expensive. If you do it right, making your own at home can save you a ton of cash in the long run.
When you’re looking at making your own products, doing a little bit of research can go a long way. The last thing you want to do is stop using chemicals that are hard on your skin, only to start using home remedies that are damaging. Foods like oatmeal, yogurt, and honey really are great for your skin, but some other commonly-used at-home remedies are not necessarily the best idea — things like lemon, baking soda, and sugar. But luckily for you, I’ve done some digging for you. Here are seven face washes you can make at home to get flawless skin without spending serious cash.
