DO IT YOURSELF – Make your own facial cleanser

Hi people!
So you went shopping and bought that Kaygee ‘mist’ lipstick???
Or the House of Tara foundation for that flawless look???
Or that gorgeous suede Sleek pressed powder??
And you forgot to get a cleanser!!!
‘How on earth am I going to get this makeup from my face before I sleep?’, you ask yourself..

Well let’s get you fixed on getting the perfect cleanser using olive oil and aloe vera gel!

Things you need:
• Aloe Vera gel (I used the fresh one): Aloe vera contains a plethora of anti-oxidants like beta carotene, vitamins C and E that improve the natural firmness of skin. It keeps the skin hydrated. It improves the skin elasticity, therefore minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Overall, it refreshes the skin and makes it vibrant and young-looking.

• Olive oil: It is a great skin moisturizer, in part because it contains linoleic acid, a compound not made by the body, but which prevents water from evaporating.

• Distilled water
• Blender

Method:
Step 1: Using a spoon, scoop aloe gel from the leave into the blender. If you don’t have the raw one, you can use store-bought Aloe Vera gel.
Step 2: Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. You can tweak this depending on the quantity of your aloe gel.
Step 3: Add distilled water and BLEND YOUR WAY TO CLEAN SKIN.
If you have acne-prone skin, you might want to add few drops of tea tree oil. Tea tree oil a potent antifungal that is often used to cure fungal infections of the nail, athlete’s foot, acne and lice. It is also a great natural antiseptic making it perfect for use on cuts, abrasions, burns, bug bites, mouth and nose infections and several other minor infections.
Let me know how well you love your new cleanser………….you can thank me later!!
