Your Homemade Skin Cleanser

Natural DIY Sensitive Skin Cleanser

It's easy to make a homemade cleansing lotion for sensitive skin with this simple recipe. This can be a skin cleanser for men or for women. Skin is skin.

If you are tired of buying lots of different cleansing lotions and not finding one that works on your sensitive skin, you should try to make this recipe. It is simple to make and you probably have most, if not all, of the ingredients in your kitchen. All you need is oatmeal or oat flakes, filtered water, sweet almond oil and a little bit of sour cream.

This isn't a cleanser that will last forever. You will have to make a batch twice a week or so, but again, it's so easy to make it yourself that should not be a problem. And you will have a cleanser that works on your sensitive skin...so it's worth the small effort.


Here's What You Will Need

I know, most of us never thought we would be preparing our own cleansers and beauty products, but it can be much less costly than buying over the counter beauty products and you get to control the quality and amount of the ingredients that go into your products. You can choose only the best natural ingredients. It is a lot cheaper, and it's healthier, to make your own cleansing products. You are going to find, it's fun too. I bet you will be sharing this how to recipe with your friends in no time.
