You don't need anything special to make a homemade face cleansers. These natural, easy-to-find ingredients are great for making masks, peels, and washes.

Your skin is a sensitive organ that covers practically your entire body. This means you should care for your skin not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for health reasons. Today, we’ll take a look at some natural face cleansers that help you do just that.

To do this, we’ll take a step-by-step look at how to take care of your face with natural face cleansers.

5 Steps to Take Care of Your Face

1. Open your pores

The first step is to wash your face with warm water.

Once you’ve removed all the dirt and superficial impurities that accumulate throughout the day, it’s time to open your pores before applying facial cleansers.

Preparing your face is a fundamental step in order to properly absorb the natural facial cleansers your want to use.

Here’s how:

  1. Heat a pot of water and bring to a boil.
  2. Remove from heat, and add an herb like lavender, chamomile, or green tea.
  3. Position your face over the bowl, and cover with a towel so as to soak up the vapor that washes over your face.
  4. Two to 5 minutes should be sufficient enough for the skin to sweat and pores to open.

2. Exfoliate

In this phase, we want to eliminate dead skin cells and promote cellular regeneration.  This will also help remove scars, prevent dry, flaky skin, and promote good skin circulation.

You always should do this after your face is nice and clean, with open pores. We do not recommend skipping any steps.

You can do the peeling or exfoliation with a home recipe:

Almond Exfoliation

Combine the following ingredients and save in a clean, glass bowel. Apply each time you use this treatment, which could be once a week:

  • 1/2 c. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pure almond extract
  • 1/2 c. coffee grounds
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. sweet almond oil

It’s important that you apply exfoliants with a soft, circular massage across your entire face. Place a slight amount of pressure, using an antiseptic make-up cotton ball.

This step eliminates the dirt and dead cells, so you can continue the the rest of the natural treatment.

Once your skin is well-cleaned, exfoliated, and any impurities are removed, the time has come to apply a natural mask, according to your own personal needs.

There are masks that moisturize dry skin, others that eliminate excess oil, some that eliminate marks, some that close pores, and others that fight the appearance of wrinkles.

Choose your favorite option, or try one of our great recommendations.

You can apply the mask until it hardens, or if it’s a peeling mask, keep it on your face for at least 20 or 30 minutes before washing with warm water.

It’s best to softly pat your skin dry.

4. Close your pores with natural face cleansers

Once you’ve finished cleansing, ideally you should do something to close your pores and to prevent impurities from entering again.

You can do this by applying ice-cold water to your skin or melting a few ice cubes.

However, if your mask had tomato or cucumber in it, they’ve already done the work of closing your pores.

Other products that help close pores due to their astringent properties are green tea, mint, and apple cider juice. Spread them out over your face and wait for them to dry well before washing your face with cold water.

5. Moisturize

Once you have finished cleaning your skin, it’s important to keep your skin properly hydrated. Don’t let it dry out or become excessively oily.

Using a moisturizing cream is great for this. This will prevent your skin from being taught, dry, itchy, or cracked.

You should moisturize your skin daily in order to keep it firm and smooth.

Fortunately, you can also make a homemade anti-wrinkle hydrating cream for dry skin.
