The All-Natural Cleanser

Aug 17, 2007
Every one of us nowadays are obsessed with aesthetics. Why not? We just want to look clean and presentable to the people around us, are we not right? We just want to be able to put our best foot forward, and there's nothing unnatural with that.

But while people sometimes go to the extremes to look good, most of us are just fine with using facial cleanser on our face, and we're good to go. Or not.

The facial cleanser market nowadays has become very lucrative, and hard on the middle class' sorry little pockets. Why should it?

Many brands of cleanser boast of this extract and that, of that ingredient and this, When all of those things can be found around the home. Or if not, they can be bought at the market for a fraction of the cost of the actual cleanser. Don't you just find that simply outrageous?

All you have to do is read up on the ingredients the facial cleansers use, mix and match a little, experiment on what works for you, be resourceful, and you'll have an all-natural, definitely cheap facial cleanser specifically tailored for your needs.

And that's so much better than any off-the-shelf facial cleanser sophisticate that you practically burn money for. Listed in this article are a few ingredients that help enhance the facial cleanser experience.

Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) may be a familiar word if you browse around the facial cleanser aisles much. It's definitely what made Cleopatra's skin much smoother and silkier.

That's because Cleopatra took a bath in milk, yes, that facial cleanser of nature which contains that magic ingredient which is sometimes hard to pronounce. Just because the word is big, it doesn't mean that you can't find it in small products.

Let that be a lesson for you to apply the next time you're out hunting for ingredients for your home-made facial cleanser. You can also find these AHA's in grapes, oranges, blackberries, and apple juice.

You can search your cupboards for breakfast food that will aid you in whipping up your perfect cleanser. Take oatmeal, for example. It may be bland on the breakfast bowl but on your skin it absorbs oil, exfoliates, and softens skin. Oats are also hypoallergenic and they help in the healing of dry and itchy skin.

You can also head to your garden. If you've got an aloe vera plant, break off a leaf and drip some aloe vera gel onto your cleanser concoction. It refreshes your skin as well as reduce pain and heal burns faster.

Or head over to your produce and mash up some fruit or vegetables. Avocado has moisturizing properties. Cucumber hydrates. Toss in some tea leaves for that refreshing feeling when your done a-cleansing.

Those are just a few of the ingredients that you can toss into your facial cleanser for a cheaper and easier facial cleanser. But always be sure to take the necessary precautions.

Freeze and thaw your cleanser and store it away from your food to inhibit bacteria growth. Test the cleanser on the inside of your wrist before using so that you can make sure that it is safe on your skin. Have fun if you can.

Why don't you and your friends hold a beauty-bar party that makes facial cleansers out of your all-natural reservoir.
