Facial Cleanser: Cleansing milk creams and scrubs

Here are some best natural Homemade Cleansinf creams and scrubs for face

A quick cleanse in the morning (to remove toxins that have reached the surface via the sweat glands) and a thorough cleanse at night are important for every skin type. Soap doesn't remove make-up and can be drying, so use soap-free cleansing bars, or wash-off or wipe-off cleansing creams instead.

Minty body cleanser

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon cucumber extract or crushed cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
  • 2 tablespoons almond meal to make it an exfoliate (Optional)

In a saucepan, bring water to boil. Add mint and let seep for 7 to 10 minutes. Let cool slightly and filter the solution, saving the liquid. Add the remain ingredients to the liquid and stir together. Apply to body or face like liquid soap, then rinse with warm water. Follow with a cool water rinse. Makes 3/4 cup. Cover and refrigerate. Discard after 2 days.

Creamy Cucumber and Elderflower

Cucumber features in many commerical face cleansers, as is a tried and trused natural astringent and cleansing agent. Here, we use organic cucumber to create a fresh, natural cleanser, suitable for all skin types. Elder flowers are healing and astringent.

Ingredients : 5 oz (150ml) cleasing lotion base, 1/2 of a fresh, organic cucumber, 7 drops elderflower tincture, 5 drops lemon essential oil.

Preparation :

  1. Wash the cucumber thoroughly in cold water. Chop a third of the cucumber roughly, place it in a blender, and puree.
  2. Strain the cucumber through a piece of clean muslin. Squeeze the cloth to extract the juice.
  3. Measure the cleansing lotion base into a glass container with a good pouring spout. Add the cucumber juice and stir thoroughly. Add the elderflower tincture and lemon oil and stir to thoroughly combine all the ingredients.
  4. Pour the mixture into two bottles. Label them clearly. One is ready for use and other can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one month.

Apricot Butter Cold Cream (For Dry Skin)

  • 10 oz apricot kernel oil
  • 2 oz cocoa butter
  • 2 oz beeswax

Heat all in the top of a double boiler until wax and butter are melted. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth and cooled. Transfer to jars, cap and refrigerate.

Buttermilk and Fennel Cleansing Milk (For Oily Skin)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 Tbsp crushed fennel seeds

Heat the milk and fennel seeds in top of a double boiler for 30 minutes. Turn off heat, let steep for 2 hours. Strain, cool, pour into bottle and refrigerate. Keeps for 2 weeks.

Chamomile Cleansing Milk (For Dry and Sensitive Skin)
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp chamomile flowers, fresh or dried

Simmer ingredients in top of a double boiler for about 30 minutes, do not allow milk to boil. Turn off heat and let sit for about 2 hours, strain. Keep refrigerated. Apply with cotton balls to the face.
Variations: Use elderflowers, sweet violets or lime blossoms in place of chamomile

MILK - Nature's most effective natural cleanser.

  1. Take half a cup of cold milk.
  2. Add half teaspoon of salt. Stir.
  3. Take balls os cotton, soak and then gently dab milk and salt lotion all over forehead, face and neck.
  4. Leave it on for 2-3 mintues. Apply again.
  5. Now rub gently in the circular motion and wash off. The salt in the milk gently exfoliate dead skin and the milk nourishes the skin.

Your face instantly gets a fresh and glowing look. This is good for all skin types.
