natural cleansers and moisturizers made from food?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I heard that the best on skin products are made from food products.

I was wondering if anyone know of a book or website that has recipes made from food products (such as fruits, oils, etc) that are successfull in cleaning and moisturizing the skin on the face and body? Also maybe even soaps and shampoos?

Also, does anybody have experiences with this?

I am already eating a healthy diet full of fruits, veggies, cod liver oil, potatoes, rice, squash, whole grains and fish. But now I want to replace my cleanser and moisturizer to more natural home made products.

Replacing all the products youve got is probably the best thing you can do. I have done the same and now I am clear.

Ive notcied that I don't even need to "wash" my face with anything besides water.

Here are some things which work well for acne and red marks:


Olive oil


Diluted apple cider vinegar

Diluted tea tree oil

Crushed ibuprofen (paste)

Crushed aspirin (paste)

Baking soda as a scrub

I started washing my face with honey + sugar diluted with water, then tone with apple cider vinegar diluted with water. Has anybody else tried this technique with success? I am sick of using products.

Just remember that many recipes are unnecessarily complicated. You can do most of your cleansing with plain water. You can use just about any oil, olive for example for cleansing although combining it with a small amount of castor oil makes it work better.

You can soothe irritated skin with plain aloe vera or stir in a few things. I mix it with a little jojoba, a green tea capsule and a niacinimide capsule and use it for my main moisturizer.

You can apply plain yogurt as a lactic acid (an AHA) mask.
