Little Lottie: DIY Cleanser

DIY Cleanser

This cleanser is super simple and only contains 3 ingredients - others can be added. I'm no dermatologist but I believe this cleanser can be used on all skin types from oily and blemished to dry and sensitive.

Disclaimer: It is important to adjust the recipe and amounts to what works for your skin, jojoba oil can be switched for another oil like coconut but after experimenting I have found this combination works for me.

-When buying an oil make sure the bottle is dark so the vital vitamins haven't been killed by the sun or any other lights
-When choosing a honey opt for a raw product rather than flavoured and coloured
-Add more castor oil if you skin is oily and more jojoba oil if your skin is dry
-Try to use a bottle with a pump or nozzle for the mixture so the honey cant come out in lumps. 

-Raw Honey - make sure the honey is pure and has limited preservatives. You can change this for Manuka honey if you have a little more cash to spend. Honey- draws out bacteria (therefore it is common to have a purging stage to begin with.)
-Jojoba oil - great at moisturizing the skin and hair
-Castor oil - Great carrier oil that dries spots and helps oily skin

My Recipe:
6 teaspoons - jojoba
2 teaspoons- castor
2 teaspoons - honey

Castor oil

Your liquid should look golden like so. Remember to shake before every use so the parts separate.
