If you are like me, conscious about what goes into your skincare products. You are on the right page. Store-bought facial cleansers usually have long list of ingredients. Mostly contain with artificial fragrances, colorings, foaming agent, preservations, stabilizers and etc. These things can have negative effect to our skin and the environment. So, I am ready to explore and make my own facial cleanser. A little research on the internet, I found out that honey, which is readily in my pantry, to be a supreme ingredient for making facial wash. Lets get crafty, my friends!
What we need for this incredibly easy to make recipe
1. Raw honey 30 grams
2. Distilled water/ Boiled water 30 grams
5. 2.5ml Almond oil/ Vegetable Glycerin
6. 100ml bottle with a pump
For sure to only use raw honey in the recipe. Unpasteurized honey has natural enzymes, rich minerals, antioxidants and antibacterial properties to benefit the skin. Heat treated pasteurized honey might lose the goodness along the way.
