One thing I know for a fact is one good way to get healthy skin is to make sure that you include a good natural cleanser in your daily skincare routine. Even though, there are some good ones out there on the market, they can be quite expensive. This is why a lot of the time I try and make sure I have what I need in my home to make my own facial cleanser. I would like to share a couple of those homemade recipes with you right here.

My Favorite Lemon Cleanser

This one is extremely easy to make and it’s one that smells really good too. Here’s all you need to make this great homemade facial cleanser in your own home.


One tablespoon of plain yogurt

One teaspoon of fresh lemon juice

Two drops of essential lemon oil (can find at any health food store)


Just take all three ingredients and mix together. Then I just take a cotton ball and soak it in the mixture. I like using this one at night especially to remove my makeup. I just take the cotton ball and remove all my makeup and then I take another cotton ball, soak it in the natural cleanser and go all over my face. I do this until the last cotton ball comes off looking clean.

As you can see, the ingredients are meant for one application. The reason for this is that it doesn’t keep very well. I know that this might be a drawback for some, but once you use it, you will find that it’s well work taking the time out to make it each time you want to use it.

My Favorite Olive Oil Cleanser

Believe it or not, oil is great for your skin, yes, even if you have a little bit of oily skin. This is especially true with olive oil. It’s an extremely good homemade facial cleanser.


Two teaspoons of baby wash

Two tablespoons of water

Two tablespoons of glycerin

Half a cup of olive oil


Take all of the ingredients and put them into your blender. Then just mix these ingredients until you have a nice thick, smooth and creamy cleanser. I always make sure that I have a bottle that has a little pump with it and then put this cleanser into this bottle for easy use. Once I have this natural skincare cleanser in the bottle I just put some on my hand and then massage it gently into my skin starting with my neck and then working up to my face. It’s even gentle enough to use on your eyelids and your eyelashes. This means it’s easier to get all that makeup off.

I do this for about a minute and then take a clean warm washcloth and remove the cleanser and any remaining dirt there might be on my face.

Enjoy your beautiful skin!
