3 natural recipes to cleanse and soothe your skin
Preparing your own natural cleansing cosmetic products is very easy. They keep your skin healthy and give you luminosity.

The most important step in any facial care routine is to begin with a proper cleansing of the delicate skin of the face using a mild and natural cleanser.

3 natural recipes to cleanse and soothe your skin

Our skin performs a protective function against infinite external aggressions. It is very important to keep it healthy, so that it does not become congested, that blackheads, dermatitis, itching, dehydration, flaking, spots, acne do not appear … and that implies a cleaning routine. The skin will retain its elasticity, shine, hydration and radiance.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO CLEANSE YOUR SKIN?

We can make daily use products at home for a gentle cleaning, or for a deeper cleaning once or twice a week, depending on the type of skin we have, our makeup habits or our exposure to dust or pollution.

Among the products that we can make at home we have:

  • Make-up removers, which can be aqueous lotions based on purifying flower or plant hydrolates
  • Biphasic lotions, composed of floral water and vegetable oils; liniments and cleaning emulsions, somewhat more elaborate; and lightly exfoliating cleansing powders and gels to cleanse more thoroughly.
  • Facial scrubs can be used once or twice a week depending on whether we have combination or oily skin.

1. DRY OATMEAL CLEANER WITH LAVENDER

Ingredients:

  • 4 tbsp oatmeal or colloidal oatmeal
  • 2 tbsp white or green clay
  • 2 tbsp ground lavender flowers

Elaboration:

Thank you for watching

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a jar with a sanitized lid and lid so that it will keep for several months until you finish it. You do not need to add preservatives, as the ingredients are dry and will not be easily contaminated.
  2. To use it, put a tablespoon in the palm of your hand, add a tablespoon of water and rub to form a paste. Apply it to the face with circular massages, without pressing. You can use it as a mask by leaving it to act for 5 minutes and rinsing with warm or lukewarm water.
  3. Then pat dry and apply toner and day cream.

Properties and tricks

This cleanser soothes and gently exfoliates. Clay helps eliminate toxins, softens and purifies. Lavender provides a pleasant scent as well as gently purifying, soothing, and exfoliating. If you have to grind lavender or you have flaked oats and you are grinding them yourself, use a coffee grinder. Store in a dry, dark place.

2. CHAMOMILE MICELLAR LOTION

Ingredients:

  • 90 g chamomile infusion or hydrolate
  • 3 g of liquid glycerin
  • 3 g of natural liquid soap without sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)

Elaboration:

  1. Put all the ingredients in a bottle one by one. Cover and shake.
  2. Apply with a cotton pad with gentle circular massages and from the center of the face towards the hair, to remove makeup. Then rinse off with lukewarm water.
  3. Keep it away from heat and light, and use it within a month.

Properties

This lotion hardly lathers (because it does not contain SLS, a foaming detergent that can be irritating and harmful to the skin), but it will gently and naturally cleanse your face. Chamomile provides its decongestant properties. Glycerin is an extraordinary moisturizer.

3. BIPHASIC OF CALENDULA AND ALMONDS

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp marigold infusion
  • 3 tbsp almond oil
  • 1 vitamin E capsule
  • 10 drops of grapefruit seed extract

Elaboration:

  1. Place the infusion, well filtered, in a bottle and add the grapefruit extract: it is a preservative and will make your lotion last a month.
  2. Add the almond oil and vitamin E. Cover and shake well.
  3. Apply this lotion with a cotton pad. You can use it as a make-up remover, also for the eyes.

Properties and tricks

It is used to cleanse the skin in the morning or remove make-up at night. If you want, you can add some essential oil (such as lavender for combination skin or tea tree for oily skin), but you can no longer use it to remove make-up from your eyes. Store in the refrigerator or in a dry, dark place.
