Three Methods for Skin Cleansing
How to Detox Your Skin
Believe it or not, cat litter can actually be used to cleanse your skin. Because clumping cat litter is clay based, you can add water to it to make a paste like substance that you can use as a mask or cleanser cream for your skin. Simply mix a handful of cat litter with enough water to give the mixture a paste like consistency, and smear it on the area that you want to cleanse. Let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes before rinsing it clean. A good idea would be to put this mask on before you take a shower, as the clay can help open and clear your pores, but a shower will allow you to get a long lasting, deep cleanse of your skin.
Lemon and Vitamin E
Lemon juice is highly acidic, which is common knowledge. It has a number of uses as a home remedy, and can be used to cure sore throats and lighten your hair. But did you know that the acidic pH value of lemon juice can create a neutralizing reaction with alkaline oils that cause pimples on your skin? These reactions are simple chemical reactions that leave salt and water behind. If you mix lemon juice with Vitamin E cream, and apply it to your skin for overnight exposure, you can see results in less than twelve hours. However, repeated treatments will be needed to fully cleanse a section of skin, but this is a great overnight solution if you have a major event the next day.
Oatmeal mixed with honey can be a great exfoliating agent, and can help cleanse your skin of blackheads and pimples. Mix water, oatmeal, honey, and baking soda together to form a paste, similar to the cat litter method above, and then apply the mask to your face. Let it sit for roughly 15 minutes, or until it begins to harden, and then rinse it off of your face. Make sure that you remove it from your face before it hardens, as sticky oatmeal can be a pain to get off of your skin.
