4 Easy DIY Face Wash Recipes You Can Whip Up For Skincare O'Clock

Cleansing your skin regularly is probably the most important step in your skincare routine. It's crucial in maintaining a healthy complexion and removing impurities like dirt, grime, and oil from the pores. Even if your beauty regime consists of just washing your face and applying moisturiser, it is something of a ritual. Starting on a fresh and clean canvas is extremely necessary so that your top layer can absorb all the skin-loving goodness you pack on afterward.

While there are many good facial cleansers in the market there's something special about whipping one up in your kitchen. Now that we're at home and have a lot more free time, treating our skin to some classic ghar ke nuskhe is a great idea.

So, Here Are Facial Cleanser Recipes That You Can Whip Up In Your Kitchen

Happy and healthy skin is waiting for you on the other side.

Oatmeal, Honey And Lemon For Dry And Flaky Skin


Oatmeal is used in various homemade face masks, scrubs, and cleansers because of its high antioxidant content and anti-inflammatory properties. Lemon acts as an anti-bacterial and brightening agent while honey soothes flaky and irritated skin. Together, they are great as natural facial cleansers. 

Steps To Follow:

Step 1: In a bowl, squeeze the juice of one lemon, add two tablespoons of honey and two of ground oatmeal.

Step 2: Mix them in a blender until there's a smooth consistency and strain out any lumps.

Step 3: Apply the mixture on your face and in gentle circular movements rinse it off.

Pro Tip: Lemon makes your skin extra sensitive to the sun so be sure to follow it up with SPF.

Gram Flour For Combination Skin

Gram flour or besan is an ingredient that every desi household swears by when it comes to skincare. It's good for combination skin because it cleanses the skin without being too harsh. Milk acts as a soothing agent and turmeric cleanses pores and calms the skin. 

Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Take 1/2 cup of chickpea powder along with 1/2 cup of raw milk and 1 tsp of turmeric and blend them in a blender together.

Step 2: Apply the mixture and gently cleanse your skin, rubbing it in circular motions for a few minutes.

Step 3: Wash off with lukewarm water and see the glow.

Tea Tree And Aloe Vera For Oily And Acne-Prone Skin


Tea tree is a super ingredient for people with acne-prone and oily skin all thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It calms redness, swelling, and inflammation, it is also known to reduce acne scars. Aloe vera is famous for its cooling and soothing benefits so together, these two can really be the natural cleansing concoctions you're looking for. 

Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Scoop out the gel of one aloe vera leaf.

Step 2: Blend the aloe with 10 drops of tea tree essential oil in a blender until well combined.

Step 3: Apply the paste and leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse off with warm water.

Matcha And Honey For Normal Skin

Matcha has loads of antioxidants and is known to reduce the early signs of aging. It also helps combat environmental stressors and pollution.

Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Mix one tablespoon of honey, the pulp of half an avocado, one teaspoon of matcha powder, and five drops of tea tree essential oil in a bowl. 

Step 2: Add in a quarter cup of water and stir it all well until it becomes a paste.

Step 3: Wet your face and apply it on the skin and wash off normally.

One word of advice, when you're trying out a home remedy, do a patch test on your hand to see that you aren't allergic to any ingredient and then apply it on your face. You've got to be safe and careful, right?

However, if you still think you're better off using a face cleanser where you don't have to put in so much effort making, you can use a germ-killing one that will keep you safe during the current times.
