Homemade oil cleanser

Oil cleansers are great, because oils have ability to soak deep into skin dissolving all the dead skin that has become hard and therefore caused clogged pores. This causes skin impurities, bacteria growth and spots.  If you have oily skin, don’t think that applying oil cleanser will make it even oiler! Opposite, it will help to balance skin and give it a fresh and healthy glow. Our skin produces sebum that protects the skin and helps prevent dryness.

Almond milk and pear calming cleanser

Have you ever tried pears in your skincare routine? Mixed with milk and a drop of oil, they form a soothing cleanser. 1 ripe pear 1/2 cup of milk (I used almond) 1/2 tbsp sweet almond oil Wash the skin of the pear, halve it and remove the seeds. In a saucepan, boil the pear for 5 minutes, then pat dry. Blend the boiled pear together with the milk and oil until creamy. Wash your face and neck, rinse off with warm water. If you have any left, keep the mixture in the refrigerator, but it will last only a few days.
