DIY Facial Wash

DIY Facial Wash

Making your own DIY face wash not only saves you money, it also keeps you in control of what’s going onto — and into — your body. Remember, skin is the body’s largest organ and all of your topical beauty products, whether it’s lotion, hair cream, perfume or make up, ends up filtering into your bloodstream.

That’s why we’re such big proponents of using beauty products that you could technically eat. And though they may not taste good, they’ll definitely feel good on your skin.

Natural Face Wash For Dry Skin

Hydration is key when you’re dealing with dry skin, so you’ll want to add natural humectants to your face wash. Humectants, like aloe vera oil, honey, seaweed and algae, pull moisture from the air and helps it bond to your skin. Voila— instant hydration! Make essential oil face wash by adding lavender or chamomile to any recipe. Both have instant calming effects.
