In simple words, if you can create a face wash with simple and natural ingredients available at home, then why to use those store bought jars which are full of chemicals. Here are a few simple face wash ideas to try.And since these recipes are free from those chemicals which make them last longer, make sure that you always prepare small batches of these recipes as some of these might last for only a few days or a week. And don’t forget to store them in fridge for a longer shelf life. let’s get started…
Apple Cider Vinegar– We all know the benefits of ACV for body, hair and skin. But do you know that you can also use it as a face wash for acne prone or oily skin. ACV maintains the ph level of the skin and helps in fighting out the problem of excessive oil, acne and blemishes. To prepare a face wash using this ingredient take a bowl and mix ACV and water in 1:1 ratio. Pour this mixture in a clean spray bottle and you are good to go. You can also add a few drops of baby body wash or a tiny piece of baby soap to this mix if you want a little bit of lather in your face wash.
Apple cider and aloe vera– Aloe soothes the skin and ensures healthy and evenly toned skin.To make this face wash repeat the above process first. Now scoop out fresh aloe vera and churn it in a grinder to make a smooth paste. Mix this aloe vera paste with the ACV face wash and use it daily for a healthy and glowing skin. This recipe is also an excellent cleanser, toner and moisturizer for the skin, so you get all the three benefits by using a single face wash mix.
Cucumber lemon– Lemon is an excellent astringent and bleach for the skin which also helps in deep cleansing of the pores. Cucumber on the other hand helps in soothing the skin. To make a face wash using these two ingredients mix distilled water, strained cucumber juice, and strained lemon juice in 4:3:1 ratio. Again you can add foaming agent to this face wash if you want a little bit of lather but remember to use something which is mild and gentle.
Aloe and mint– To soothe a acne prone skin you can try a mix of these two ingredients. Add mint juice to the freshly prepared aloe vera face wash and keep the bottle in fridge as mint won’t last for long. Mint soothes and fights any sort of infection in the skin.
