I’ve been seeking new ways to take care of my skin since I looked on the back of my face wash cleanser bottle & didn’t know any ingredient listed besides “water”. After some research, I found this 2-ingredient moisturizing face wash that was easy to make & lasted awhile.
After trying this for a month, I’ve tweaked the original recipe to use 1/2 a lemon for lemon juice with 1 tbsp. of honey. My face feels softer & a lot of blemishes/scars started to diminish after 1 week of using it consistently. I was originally using it to moisturize my face but found the lemon’s antibacterial properties prevents acne & its citric acid acts as a delicate skin peel, removing the top layer of dead skin cells (be careful of minor stinging if you leave it on too long or have an open wound). See more homemade lemon beauty recipes here.
Using a few homemade alternatives like the Lemon Honey, Honey moisturizing face wash makes me feel good about what I’m putting on my face. Lately I’ve been more curious about the skincare products I use because when I go to the store the best designed package stands out to me more than the effects the ingredients could have on my body (curse of a designer!). Making my own removes all of that nonsense, leaving me more money to make other poor buying decisions with.
All-natural baby! If only I could have picked that lemon myself…
