Making your own facial cleanser is much easier than you might think.
Often it doesn't actually involve any making; just select the right ingredient to gently massage into your skin.
A number of cleansers can be created with one ingredient!
Any of the following can be used alone as a face cleanser:
- Avocado, mashed
If you' like to try making a facial cleanser that includes more than one ingredient, I have collected some lovely recipes for you:
