You can Make Homemade Face Wash

After a lot of research and constant repining on Pinterest, I think I have come up with a pretty simple technique, I have gotten it down to between two to four products! One of the main ingredients I use is Coconut Oil, I do have oily skin so I was pretty hesitant on using it. You would think that when you have oily skin, you NEVER want to use oil on your skin. But, it actually has helped counter act the oil my body makes, so that my skin is really soft and not oily throughout the day.

Second ingredient is Honey! Honey has many anti-bacterial traits and is good for treating acne. If you’re like me, you have tons of break outs and scars, and just when you think you finally have clear skin again, you have a totally new break out ALL OVER your face. My skin is really sensitive and if I even touch my face once, I have a break out.

A third ingredient you can use is pretty much any type of Essential Oil. Tea Tree is really good for spot treatments, as well as Rosemary. The oil I like to use is Lavender, not only because Lavender also is great for treating new or old break outs, but because when I use it at night it puts me in a great relaxed state after using it.

The last ingredient that I use is great for exfoliating your skin, nut. I don’t recommend putting it in your cleanser every day because exfoliating your skin is taking layers of skin off your face and isn’t always good to do every night. The last ingredient is Oatmeal! Most people take the oatmeal and ground it so its finer, but I just use it how it is because I feel like I get the best clean that way.

Using your wash. Most days throughout the week I will use my wash with just Coconut Oil and Honey, I’ll put the Lavender in after a long day. I massage it onto my face for a few minutes, then I will take a washcloth under the hottest water I can handle, ring it out, and hold it on my face to open and warm everything up. I massage my face with the washcloth as well to get the oil off and then that’s it! The process is the same with the Oatmeal, I just use that about three times a week to help get rid of dead skin.

Eyebrow Threading

Some of the main benefits are:-

  • Unlike plucking, in this process, the hair takes much longer to grow back. The hair is uprooted from root to tips which ensure that the hair doesn’t grow back again for at least a couple of weeks.
  • This process does not leave any spot marks. Due the fact that the hair is uprooted completely the areas remain clean and neat. All you can see is the skin
  • In the case of plucking or waxing, hair re-growth is often uneven. Some people complain that their eyebrows have come out thicker and fuller which can really deteriorate one’s look. But in threading, hair grows evenly and gradually.
  • It’s convenient to do. Unlike waxing, you don’t need to do much preparation in this process. All you need is a thread and an expert professional.

Trying it for the first time

Yes, it’s true that trying this process for the first time can be a little painful, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t do it. Before and after the process, just put a layer of lotion or cream over the area. As the pores remain wide open for quite some time, it is not advised to wash the area immediately.

Considering the fact that most women are conscious about how they look, it’s normal for them to splurge high on their makeup. Any kind of cosmetology therapy is available at most salons and parlours. All you need to do is find a salon which you find suitable. Be careful here as doing any kind of beauty therapy in an unknown salon can be a risk; you don’t want that for your face.

Info of Tea Tree Oil

There is one instance where is it recommended and safe to apply tea tree oil neat, and this is to acne, but only if done is a very precise manner with a cotton bud dabbed onto each spot. When used neat on normal skin this can cause irritation and redness, but the strength of the oil is most effective when applied neat in this instance.

This can be done at night and in the morning after washing and moisturising the face. If this is done at night it can be very effective at killing the spot and reducing the inflammation significantly by the time morning arrives. For acne, this treatment should be carried out over a period of weeks or months in order to enjoy the best results.

If you are planning a course of tea tree oil for acne, then it is strongly recommended to consult a dermatologist or natural skin care practitioner first of all in order to get their guidance on your particular skin condition. These experts will be able to advise you more specifically on your use of tea tree oil and warn you of any particular precautions that you may need to take.

For those who are suffering from acne in hard to reach places on the body or on a larger area of skin, a general spot treatment can be formulated by mixing tea tree oil with a base oil such as coconut oil, or with aloe vera. This can consist of a mix of 10{8d98f9d8aa22d7a0957da2b7db4f98d70090c0979e2f0a7aae561a1327875a09} to 20{8d98f9d8aa22d7a0957da2b7db4f98d70090c0979e2f0a7aae561a1327875a09} of tea tree to the base oil, which will make it less potent but also less irritating to the skin.

For the right percentage of dilution, consult a skin care expert who will be able to guide you in accordance with the tolerance of your own skin to this oil. These diluted treatments can then be used on larger areas of the body, with nourishing coconut oil recommended for the body and soothing aloe vera recommended for the face.

These treatments are also good for other skin problems, such as athlete’s foot or blackheads and very oily skin on the face. In these cases the anti-bacterial properties of the oil and the base product will act to sooth, nourish and disinfect the problem areas for noticeable results over an extended course of treatment of a few weeks.

There are other ways of using this oil rather than direct application, and one great method for those suffering from a skin infection all over their body is by adding a few drops to a warm bath and enjoying a soak. This can then be towelled off and regular body moisturiser applied, which is very effective for a more gentle treatment that does not require direct application of the product.

Likewise, tea tree oil can also be added to existing beauty products such a moisturisers, shampoos and shower gels in order to enjoy some of the anti-bacterial benefits in a much more diluted solution, and without investing in another base product either. These are just some of the best ways to start integrating the benefits of tea tree oil into your skincare regime.
