Homemade Beauty Products 101: Homemade Honey Facial Cleanser Recipes

Apr 01, 2015 02:22PM, Published by Savannah Ludwig, Categories: Beauty +Style




Many store-produced facial cleansers use some variation of a recipe that involves honey in them. Honey contains gluconic, a mild alpha hydroxyl acid. Gluconic acid loosens dead skin cells so honey can be used as an exfoliant. Moreover, honey stimulates new skin cell growth encouraging a glowing look to your skin after you use the honey facial cleanser. Honey also helps to keep moisture in the skin where it belongs, making honey facial cleansers the perfect solution for cleansing dry-condition or damaged skin. Honey’s moisturizing effect is partly due to the fact that it contains amino acids, substances that aid the skin in retaining its natural moisture.

Making Homemade Honey & Egg Facial Cleanser

You only need two ingredients- honey and egg white. Start with a medium-size bowl. Pour in approximately 1/3 cup of honey. Next, separate the yolks and whites of two fresh eggs. Add the two whites to the honey in the bowl and mix well.

Gently apply the homemade honey & egg facial cleanser to the face and allow it to remain on for approximately 10 minutes. During this time, you will begin to feel your face tingling and the skin becoming tighter. This is normal and this process will help to tone your facial skin.

Rinse your face thoroughly with warm water to remove all of the facial from your skin. If you have experienced sunburn or any other skin condition recently, rinse this particular facial off after 5 minutes instead of waiting the full 10.

Making Homemade Honey & Oats Facial Cleanser

This particular homemade facial cleanser is designed to give a person a nice glowing look for the skin after using it. It is simple to make and you probably even have most of the ingredients right at home.

Take a small bowl and mix together equal parts of honey and oats (about 1/3 cup of each.) Stir these ingredients together until they are well blended. Next, add in additional oats if the mixture does not form a paste. Now add in approximately 1/3 cup of yogurt and 1/5 cup of finely-ground almonds. Mix well. Add in more finely-ground almonds if the mixture stops being a paste.

Dampen your face with warm water and gently apply the homemade honey & oats facial cleanser evenly. Allow the mixture to sit on your face to do its magic for at least 10 minutes. Gently rinse your face with warm water to remove all trace of the facial mixture.

Making Homemade Honey & Milk Facial Cleanser

The homemade honey & milk facial cleanser is a creamy mix that feels cool as it goes on. It is gentle to the skin so it is perfect for those women whose faces show signs of dryness, wind burn, or sunburn. Since both honey and milk are nourishing, this is the perfect facial cleanser for women who wish to moisturize or rejuvenate their facial skin. Both of these ingredients are thought to calm irritated skin.

Only to ingredients are needed for this recipe- milk and honey. Take a small bowl and pour in slightly more than 1/3 cup of honey. Add in slightly less than 1/3 cup of milk. Blend these two ingredients together well. Apply the mixture to the face and allow it to remain on approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse your face gently with warm water to remove all residue.

Intro: Homemade honey facial cleansers are easy to make and use. Try one of these three delightful recipes to gently cleanse your face, open up its pores, and freshen your skin.
