DIY Good Morning Facial Cleanser

This gentle natural cleanser exfoliates and soothes, and firms the skin.
Using this homemade cleanser is the perfect way
to say “Good Morning” to the world.
Made with three simple household ingredients, and easy to mix up.

DIY Good Morning Facial Cleanser
2 Tablespoons of Whole Organic Oats
2 Tablespoons of Powdered Soy Milk or Cow’s Milk
1 Tablespoon of Organic Sweet Almond Oil or Organic Olive Oil
Hand crush whole oats or grind in a coffee grinder. Combine all three ingredients in a small bowl, and mix well.
Place a small amount in the palm of your hand, mix with tap water until desired consistency. Then simply rub it on your face in a circular motion.  Leave on your face for about five to ten minutes, or until dry.  Rinse off with soft cloth and warm water.
Store in a tight sealed container in the refrigerator for a few days.

  1. This seems like it would be very soothing--I will have to try it.

  2. What would make this even better is if I could have someone make it for me and then apply it to my face. That would really up the relaxation factor! ;-)

  3. This looks fantastic. I have very sensitive skin and would love to try this. Going to pin it!

  4. Thanks for this great recipe. I have a question about how much does this make? I want to make them as gifts for a party. Thanks!

  6. Does the powered milk has to be sugar free? I heard from my mom that sugar can cause freckles when the skin expose to sunlight.

  7. I have powdered buttermilk. Will this work?
