Beauty on a budget: part 3 (homemade cleanser's)

Hey Girls,

Finally the weekend is hereeeeee and what better way to start the weekend than with fresh clean skin :)
In today's post I give away all my tips and tricks on how to make a home made facial cleanser

1. Natural cleanser ( cleans and moisturises)

What you need:

2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (yes i know oil sounds kind of scary but extra virgin oil is totally natural and does not block pores)
5 fresh grapes
1 teaspoon of milk (milk is soothing)

blend everything together until it becomes a liquid.


What you need:

1 tablespoon of honey (cleans and attracts moisture)
1 tablespoon of milk or cream (soothing)

warm honey in the miscowave for a few seconds or place you cup/carton of honey into a bowl of boiling water. you want the honey to be a warm liquid not too hot.
Mix honey and milk or cream together, this should be made fresh

3. stimulating and rejuvanating

what you need:

1 teaspoon of green tea
2 tablespoons of cornmeal
1 tablespoon of natural yogurt
1 teaspoon of chopped mint leaves

mix tea and mint and leave it steep and cool down
mix well with yogurt and cornmeal.
This can be put in the fridge for a few days

4. cleanser for oily skin:

what you need:

 2 tablespoons of baking soda
 lemon juice or tomato juice.

 Mix baking soda and juice together
Add enough juice to make a thick paste and massage the face and neck area. Massage gently and avoid the eyes then rinse off.
