Oil Facewash - No Seriously
I saw this post about homemade facewash and was intrigued so I read more about it here. I am excited about switching out my beauty products for homemade all-natural versions but I'm more in the baby steps/read about it phase while I use up what I already have.
Well, I found this idea right as I ran out of my usual favorite fashwash so I thought I'd try it out. I have to say, this au-natural stuff works amazingly well. It's kind of weird, yes, but it totally works. My skin feels fantastic for 2-3 days after doing it. The only odd part is getting used to not washing my face with anything in the shower. You're just supposed to splash with water on the days you don't do the full cleanse so that's taking some getting used to.
But seriously, this facewash is great. And it's totally natural, easy to make, cheap, and I don't need to use moisturizer when I'm done (so double the cheapness factor). Oh, and you can adjust the proportions for your skin type. V even likes it. Which is saying something.
Repeat as needed - about 2-3 times per week or more often for troubled skin.
Notes: Use about 15% Castor Oil for dry skin and up to 30% Castor Oil for oily skin. Feel free to experiment with proportions. Also, if you like it, get a small bottle to store it in so you don't have to make it every time.
