Natural Ways to Cleanse the Face

I try not to have any chemicals on my body. I don’t wear make-up for the most part because I can’t afford the chemical free stuff right now. Maybe soon but for now I only wear make-up if I’m going to be in my sister’s wedding, hee,hee.

So what do I use to clean my face and moisturize it? Honey, oils, and all natural products.

In the past I have always been chemical conscious. I use to use California Baby to wash and moisturize my face or Beeuyoutiful items. I love how the California Baby products smell. I use to buy their Calming Wash shampoo and use it to wash my face too! And the Calming Cream to moisturize my face. I used these two products for years. Josh was a baby when I started purchasing from California Baby, this was before Target carried the products. I would buy from mommy diaper sites (miss those years).

Now I’ve tightened the no chemical rule even more (again, I’m not 100% but I’m getting there).

To wash my face in the morning I usually use my Morrocco Method shampoo or homemade soap. I love that the Morrocco Method products are so natural that you can eat them if you wanted to but please don’t. I like the rule, “If you can’t eat it we shouldn’t use it” for the most part anyway. Not that I follow it all the time but I try.
Morrocco Method
I don’t use honey to wash my face in the morning because I forget to put it on before jumping in the shower but I always have homemade soap or Morrocco Shampoo in there.

Sometimes I’ll spritz my face with the Diamond Crystal Mist Conditioner and Moisturizer. I love the way it smells. This is made to condition the hair but again, like the shampoo it can be used on your face too. It has lots of good stuff for your face like:
  • Aqua (Water)
  • Quartz crystals liquefied into a base of Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s Wort)
  • Rosa rubiginosa (Wild Rose) Oil
  • Santalum album (Sandalwood) Oil
  • Boswellia carterii (Frankincense) Oil
  • Commiphora myrrha (Myrrh) Oil
  • Acacia concinna (Shikakai) Oil
Or I spritz some homemade lavendar spray. I made this in a 4oz bottle. All I used was 2oz filtered water, 2oz pure Aloe Vera Juice, and 30-40 drops of Lavender oil. I plan to make another one with Melaleuca oil for my acne prone teenage boys.

To moisturize I add my favorite oil blends from Heritage Essential Oils. These blends smell so good! I’m so thankful to a friend who introduced me to them.
Heritage Essential Oils
The Sunny Day moisturizer helps block the sun's rays (think sunblock) but the ingredients are great for everyday use or for acne prone skin. It has Tamanu Oil (really good to help with scars), Sesame, Emu, and Avocado oils with Lavender and Carrot Seed essential oil. The only thing is it smells like celery because of the Tamanu Oil. After a while the celery smell goes away.

I rotate the oils. Flower Garden and Sunshine smell like flowers. Flower Garden is the one that hooked me! It’s the first one I tried.

The Face nourishment Wrinkle Ease has fennel in it and smells wonderful. I love using this one in the evening. The Healing Blend has Frankincense and  Myrrh.

My whole family uses them! The prices are reasonable between $9-$13 and they last months.

In the evening I wash my face with raw honey and add a drop or two of Lavender oil (or other EO). I use different brands of honey but mainly use the one with the yellow lid. I love that it is nice and thick. The Really Raw Honey (blue lid) is too expensive so I let my daughter eat that one to help with her allergies. She takes a tsp of it with  Black Cumin Oil.

When Caleb uses our Really Natural Face Wash he adds Melaleuca Essential Oil to help with his teenage acne.

To spread the thicker honey on your skin you may need to use just a tad bit of water. I wet my fingers and massage the honey all over my face.

I also use the oil cleansing method. I use oils like coconut, olive, jojoba, etc. I massage the oil into my skin, I then use a washcloth with steaming water (not burning hot), let it sit on my face for a moment, repeat and gently remove the oils. As I repeat the water I use becomes more cool. You can read more in detail about the Oil Cleansing Method HERE.

I use both Young Living and Heritage Essential Oils. Right now because I have been using Heritage Essential Oils longer and have only recently started using Young Living most of my homemade stuff are made with Heritage Essentials Oils except for the raw honey face wash with Melaleuca oil <--- that one is from Young Living (YL).

What do you use to clean your face? Are you trying to go a more natural route? 

Next I’ll write what I use to clean and condition my hair, supplements I take, and what low-carb books I’m reading now.
