Perfect for sensitive, aging and acne-prone skin, this facial cleanser with Rose water, Aloe Vera and Olive oil gently removes makeup and leaves the skin soft and well-nourished. Simple to make, it is an excellent start for DIY beauty beginners.

Why using cleansing oils can be your first step to healthier skin?

Unlike traditional makeup removers, which can strip the skin of its naturally occurring oils, cleansing oils dissolve impurities on the skin without drying it out. They work as a lipophilic solvent – they are attracted to other oils, for instance, sebum produced by our skin and oily ingredients in makeup. Oils are also great moisturizers; it makes them an excellent alternative for dry, sensitive, or aging skin.

Main benefits of the ingredients used:

Extra Virgin Olive oil is not only a great cleanser, but also provides anti-aging compounds like antioxidants and vitamin E.

Aloe Vera Gel cleanses, moisturizes and soothes skin. It also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Rose Water is rich in vitamin C which boosts collagen and prevents premature aging. Not only it is an exceptional ingredient for sensitive skin, but it also has strong anti-inflammatory and astringent properties.

Rose Essential oil, often called the “queen of essential oils,” is a perfect choice for dry, sensitive, or mature skin types. It helps to reduce blemishes and make acne scars fade quickly. It also adds a divine scent to this DIY facial cleanser!

Fresh vs. bottled aloe vera
Make sure the bottled Aloe Vera gel does not contain any additives. Or get straight to the source: you can grow your own aloe at home. The gel comes from inside of the plant leaf, so cut it open with a clean knife and separate the gel from the prickly stalk.

Instructions and storage:

Mix well all the ingredients and pour them in a 7-8 oz glass bottle. Keep the homemade cleanser in the fridge.

How to use:

Shake well before use. Apply the cleanser and massage lightly into face and neck. Take a soft washcloth wet with warm water, and gently rub on your face to remove the oil. Lightly dry your skin, or let it air dry to avoid drying it with a towel, which can be harsh on the skin.

Tip: Organic washcloths made of premium quality bamboo fiber, like these ones, are a must-have for sensitive skin! They are naturally antibacterial, germ, dust & allergen free.

Skin Healing and Regenerating Body Butter with Kokum and Essential Oils

The main ingredient of this homemade body lotion is Kokum butter. Kokum butter is native to India where it is well-known for its healing properties. This butter is one of my favorite ingredients for body lotions as it is readily absorbed in the skin. Thanks to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties, Kokum butter fights infections, promotes healthy skin cells, and helps relieve pain from arthritis. It also shows excellent results when applied to chapped lips, cracked feet, dry hands, or dry and scaly skin.
