First step to a great skin is cleansing. It removes the dirt, keeps grime from clogging pores, perks up the skin and allows it to breathe.
However, how do we know the cleanser we use is right for our skin type? There are always signs. First check, after wash, is your skin excessively dry and stretchy or does it feel a bit too greasy?
If it's either of the case, then the wash you are using is not right for you! One universal cleanser that suits just about all skin types is an aloe vera face wash!
Aloe vera is like a boon to your skin, as it cleanses, revives and hydrates your skin, without disrupting the natural pH balance of the skin.
Aloe vera is a good source of glycoproteins and polysaccharides, proteins that keep the collagen level of the skin intact, which in turn improves its elasticity.
Furthermore, it is high on antioxidants, vitamin E and aloesin, all of which help repair and promote the regeneration of new skin cells.
Now that you know precisely what deep cleansing aloe vera face wash can do, let's get down to discovering how to use it to cleanse our face!
Cut, peel and extract 4 tablespoons of aloe vera gel in a bowl.
To the bowl, add 2 tablespoons of jojoba oil, 2 tablespoons of liquid castile soap, 3 drops of lavender oil and 5 drops of orange oil.
Using a fork, keep stirring the ingredients, until you see the components blend and form into a grey foamy liquid. Transfer the solution into a dispenser bottle. Allow the solution to hibernate for 24 hours.
Cleanse your face with water. Take a dime size of the aloe vera face wash in the palm of your hand. Work it into a lather and massage it to your moist face.
Keep massaging for about 1 minute, until you feel all the dirt come off. Rinse your face repeatedly, until all the soapy residue clears out. Later, pat dry with a soft towel.
Use this gentle aloe vera face wash twice in a day, and you will notice your skin becoming visibly soft and smooth, without becoming too oily or excessively dry. A perfect balance!
