Benefits of Making A Homemade Daily Face Wash

There are many reasons I love making my own homemade face daily wash. Following are my top contenders for investing in natural homemade skin care.

  • The ability to customize my daily face wash to my skin type.
  • I have control over the ingredients I use and I know where they come from. 
  • I’m able to create dupes of luxe skin care brands for less money.
  • It’s simple to adapt my facial skin care routine to the (new) season.
  • My skin looks younger and feels healthier using natural ingredients.

Different Types Of Homemade Daily Face Wash

Like our personalities, our skin is individual and unique to us. Therefore there are a variety of facial cleansers available to take advantage of. While cleansing balms may work well for one person, they may not for another. So you may have to try a few homemade daily face wash recipes to find your perfect fit. If you already use a store bought facial cleanser that works well for you, then that type of cleanser is a good starting point when deciding to make your own.

So what are the different types of homemade daily face washes available for your natural skin care routine? Following you’ll discover the main types of facial cleansers. As well as homemade daily face wash recipes for each type, including cleansing balms, oil cleansers, soap cleansers, facial scrubs, cleansing clays, milk cleanser and micellar water.

Homemade Daily Face Wash: Cleansing Balms Recipes. Cleansing balms are similar to cold creams that my mom and grandmother used in the way back. These rich and creamy facial cleansers are usually the consistency of a homemade body butter. Because they are thicker and heavier than other facial cleansers, cleansing balms are well suited for those with dry or maturing skin. Not only are cleansing balms effective at removing dirt and makeup, they also moisturize and hydrate thirsty skin. So they are perfect for dry or dull skin. And will impart all skin types with a healthy looking glow.

Not only are cleansing balms effective at removing dirt and makeup, they also moisturize and hydrate thirsty skin. So they are perfect for dry or dull skin. And will impart all skin types with a healthy looking glow.

Depending on the formula used to make cleansing balms, they can be used for oily and acne prone skin as well. Much like oil cleansers, cleansing balms help to balance skin. So instead of overstripping skin of all its natural oils, which can lead to overproduction of oil, it helps your skin achieve the perfect natural balance. In addition, you’ll also find that homemade cleansing balms help clear out clogged pores to reduce the occurrence of acne and blackheads.

If you have oily or acne prone skin, you don’t want to use a cleansing balm made with coconut oil or olive oil as they can clog pores. Instead, look for cleansing balm recipes that are formulated with non-comedogenic oils such as argan oil, hemp seed oil and camellia oil. (You can learn more about non-comedogenic oils for oily or acne prone skin here.) You can also opt for cleansing balms with essential oils or other ingredients, such as activated charcoal, proven to combat acne.

Homemade Daily Face Wash Recipes: Customizing Oil Cleansers for Your Skin Type. What's so remarkable about using oil cleansers as a daily facial cleanser, is that you can get a quality product with as little as a single ingredient! Not only does oil remove makeup, dirt and toxins, it won't strip your skin like some soap based cleansers can. So skin is balanced and perfectly moisturized in one simple step. Learn how to formulate your own homemade daily face wash oil cleanser recipes now at Soap Deli News blog. #facecleanser #oilcleanser #diybeauty

Homemade Daily Facial Cleanser: Oil Cleansers

Unlike cleansing balms, oil cleansers are liquid. Comprised primarily of non-comedogenic carrier oils, oil cleansers can easily be customized for every skin type. This is done by choosing carrier oils that work with your skin’s needs. Essential oils may also be added to address issues such as acne, aging or dry skin.

What’s so remarkable about using oil cleansers as a daily facial cleanser, is that you can get a quality product with as little as a single ingredient! Not only does oil remove makeup, dirt and toxins, it won’t strip your skin like some soap based cleansers can. So skin is balanced and perfectly moisturized in one simple step. As someone with maturing, combination skin prone to hormonal acne, I tend to stick to dry carrier oils. My favorite carrier oils for oil based cleansers are argan oil, rosehip seed oil and jojoba oil. While I have tried oil cleansers with other ingredients included, I always steer clear of carrier oils known to clog pores such as olive oil. 

If you’re looking for clear, glowing skin, choose carrier oils that rank low on the non-comedogenic scale. Non-comedogenic oils are carrier oils that won’t clog pores and have a comedogenic rating of 2 or less. You can explore the comedogenic ratings database at Skin Reference to help you make more informed choices about the ingredients to look for in your natural daily facial cleansers. (Also be sure to check out my anti-acne essential oil blend recipe.)

Homemade Daily Facial Cleanser: Soap Cleansers. Easy natural soap facial cleansers for an eco-friendly natural skin care routine. Just like soap removes dirt and grime from your body, facial soaps are also designed to remove dirt, sweat sebum and excess oils from the skin. However, you likely learned early on that not all soaps are created equal. If you've ever had your skin feel tight and dry after bathing, then you fully understand that some soaps are harsher than others. And that means they can strip too much oil from your skin leaving it feeling dry, itchy and irritated. Luckily facial soap cleansers are normally formulated to be gentler on skin than body soaps.

If you’re a no frills kind of girl, you may find that soap cleansers are not only more convenient, but also more practical. They also tend to cost less than some of the other homemade daily face wash cleansers. Soap based facial cleansers are typically either a solid cold process soap bar or a liquid Castile based soap formulated specifically for your skin type. I prefer to use soap cleansers for my facial skin care routine in the summer when I sweat more and my skin tends to be on the oily side. Plus, who has time for eighty different products when the lake or that hiking trail is calling your name?

If you’re trying to go zero waste, then bar soaps are also a more eco-friendly option than a facial wash that comes in, what is usually, plastic packaging. When I make bar soaps to use as a homemade daily face wash, I skip the packaging entirely. It goes right into my shower and is ready for me when I’m ready for it. While scrubs, and other liquid soap-based facial cleanser, go into a plastic container when I whip them up, I do reuse my packaging to reduce waste. (You can reuse your plastic containers by washing them thoroughly, then running them through the dishwasher. A final spritz of rubbing alcohol before you pour your product will help to ensure nothing nasty is left lurking in your containers when it’s time for fresh product.)

DIY clay cleanser recipes. DIY ideas for a simple natural daily face wash recipe. Skin care benefits of clays for facial care. Formulated with clay as a primary ingredient, the primary purpose of these DIY facial cleansers is to remove impurities and toxins from the skin. Depending on the clay used, they can also help remove excess oil and dry out acne breakouts for improved healing times. Learn about common cosmetic clays as well as how to formulate your own cleansing clay recipes for natural beauty.

Homemade Daily Face Wash: Clay Facial Cleansers

Clay facial cleansers are another option for a homemade daily face wash, especially if you are looking for a soap free facial cleanser. Formulated with clay as a primary ingredient, the primary purpose of these facial cleansers is to remove impurities and toxins from the skin. Depending on the clay used, they can also help remove excess oil and dry out acne breakouts for improved healing times. A simple wash off homemade daily face wash, I like to use clay facial cleansers when my skin leans more toward the oily side or during acne breakouts. And, for acne prone skin, these cleansers also double as a facial mask if desired. You’ll also find that you skin will benefit from the naturally occuring minerals found in the clays used.

There are a number of different types of clay. While bentonite clay is best suited for oily skin that’s prone to evil blackheads and whiteheads, there are clays that are also suited for dry or maturing skin. Here’s the skinny on the most common clays used in homemade daily face wash clay cleansers.

Learn about common cosmetic clays as well as how to formulate your own cleansing clay recipes for natural beauty.

Benefits of Common Clays Used in Clay Facial Cleansers

Benefits of French Green
  • French green clay, also sometimes called sea clay, is also great for occasional breakouts or combination skin. Not only does it“drink” oils, toxic substances and impurities from skin, its natural toning action also stimulates the skin. This clay is great at clearing occasional skin blemishes. And, when used daily it can tackle those pesky trouble spots.
Benefits of Fuller’s Earth Clay
  • Fuller’s earth clay is considered a “whitening” clay. Not only is this sedimentary clay coined as a “facial bleach” that acts as a skin lightening agent, it also possesses an extraordinary ability to absorb oil. Best suited for oily skin, this clay is often used as base ingredient in facial clay recipes. A great addition to any clay facial cleanser recipe formulated for oily skin, Fuller’s earth clay works best when combined with a small amount of bentonite clay.
Benefits of Bentonite Clay
  • Like Fuller’s earth clay, Bentonite clay is sedimentary clay. Composed of weathered and aged volcanic ash, this cosmetic clay rapidly swells as it absorbs water. As it becomes hydrated, the electrical and molecular components of Bentonite clay rapidly changes and produces an electrical charge. (You may have heard that using metal to mix Bentonite clay will “deactivate” it. This is why.) Rich in minerals calcium, magnesium and iron, this clay is also well suited for oily or acne prone skin. Not only can it help remove oil from the skin’s surface, it can also have a calming effect on skin inflammation caused by acne breakouts.
Benefits of Rhassoul or Moroccan Red Clay
  • Rhassoul clay is a mineral rich, spa quality clay unearthed from ancient deposits in the mountains of Morocco. It blends easily with water for a smooth application and has been used for centuries as a soap, shampoo and skin conditioner. Mineral rich, cleansing and detoxifying, Rhassoul clay is well suited for dry or maturing skin. It can help rebalance dry, flaky or mature skin, while also improving texture and elasticity. However, it can be used for all skin types.
Benefits of Kaolin or White Cosmetic Clay
  • White cosmetic clay also makes a great addition to any clay based homemade face wash recipe. Like Rhassoul clay, white cosmetic clay can be used for any skin type. This fine, light clay is highly versatile and is found in virtually all powdered and dry cosmetics, as well as most wet cosmetics. It’s a common ingredient in soaps, scrubs, poultices, deodorants, facial powders and face masks. Suitable for even the most sensitive of skin, this clay gently cleanses and exfoliates skin while also helping to stimulate skin circulation.

Cleansing facial clay recipes. Clay facial cleansers are a great natural soap free alternative for a homemade daily face wash. Formulated with clay as a primary ingredient, the primary purpose of these facial cleansers is to remove impurities and toxins from the skin. Depending on the clay used, they can also help remove excess oil and dry out acne breakouts for improved healing times. A simple wash off homemade daily face wash, DIY clay cleansers also double as a facial mask.

Cleansing Facial Clay Recipes

Here are a few natural cleansing facial clay recipes you can try to use as a homemade daily face wash.

DIY Milk Cleansers. Gentle natural facial cleanser recipes for your natural skin care routine. Whether these homemade skin care recipes are made with goat milk, cow milk or even vegan coconut milk, these natural beauty recipes are the perfect choice for sensitive skin care of dry skin or eczema prone skin.

Homemade Daily Facial Cleanser: Milk Cleansers

If you have sensitive skin, there’s nothing like a gentle milk cleanser to help soothe and calm inflammation. A soap free cleanser, which in some ways is similar to an oil cleanser, milk cleansers are made with naturally emollient ingredients that erase dirt and makeup without stripping your skin. Typically milk cleansers are a combination of carrier oils, such as jojoba and squalene, that also moisturize skin. Yet, unlike a cleansing balm, milk cleansers are a much thinner milk-like consistency. So they are more likely to wash completely off.

Not all milk cleansers contain milk. The term refers more to the consistency of the product. However, the cleansers that do include milk may contain coconut milk or rice milk in lieu of cow or goat milk. Unfortunately, making a DIY milk cleanser that contains milk can be tricky to preserve. Therefore if you choose to create a DIY milk cleanser, I recommend using dry ingredients – such as buttermilk powder or powdered coconut milk – that you mix with a liquid of your choice just prior to use.

Alternately, you can also mix a dry exfoliants such as clay or colloidal oatmeal with milk to use as a homemade daily face wash. The dry ingredients will keep and you never have to worry about your facial cleanser spoiling. Cleansing grains are absolutely perfect for making a simple DIY milk cleanser! Keep reading below to discover some simple DIY milk cleansers that you can safely make at home. 

DIY Milk Cleanser Recipes

Homemade Daily Face Wash: Micellar Water Cleanser Recipes for Every Skin Type. Micellar water cleansers are soap free cleansers designed to cleanse skin without being drying. These water based cleansers are comprised of tiny balls of oil cleansing molecules known as micelles, which attract dirt and oil to draw out impurities from skin, remove makeup and act as a toner cutting out the number of skin care products you need in your daily beauty routine.

Homemade Daily Face Wash: Micellar Water Cleansers

Micellar water cleansers are another soap free cleanser designed to cleanse skin without being drying. These gentle, water based cleansers are comprised primarily of tiny balls of oil cleansing molecules known as micelles, which attract dirt and oil to draw out impurities from skin. However, micellar water is more than just another facial cleanser. Not only does micellar water remove makeup and cleanse skin, it also acts as a toner cutting out the number of skin care products you need in your daily beauty routine. And, micellar water cleansers also work with all skin types – whether you skin is dry, oily or acne prone.

How to Package Round Soap

One of my favorite ways to package round soap is by using washi tape. You can do this one of two ways. You can either tightly wrap your soap in foodservice film, then wrap a piece of washi tape around the diameter of the bar. Or, you can cut brown paper to fit the diameter of your soap. Then wrap the paper around the diameter. Tape the paper closed. Then add decorative washi tape over the brown paper (as pictured above.)
