Make Your Own Healthy Cleansers

With all the dangerous chemicals around today, consider always trying to make something yourself.

These do-it-yourself cleanser concoctions are designed for dry, oil or normal skin types. The apple cider vinegar acts as a natural astringent; the olive oil helps remove dirt; the lactic acid in the yogurt exfoliates; and the lemon juice tightens pores. 

What more could you want.

  • Dry Skin: Mix 1 cup plain yogurt, ½ mashed banana/avocado, ¼ tsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp olive oil 
  • Oily Skin: Mix 1 cup plain yogurt, ½ tsp olive oil and ¼ tsp lemon juice 
  • Normal Skin: Mix 1 cup plain yogurt, 1 tsp olive oil and ¼ tsp apple cider vinegar 


Choose a cleanser depending on your personal skin type. Combine all ingredients well. Scoop out approximately ¼ cup and apply all over face with a soft, circular motion. Rub into skin for at least one minute. Rinse well with cool (not cold) water. Gently pat dry with a soft cloth. Store any unused cleanser in the refrigerator for up to seven days.
