Homemade Facewash

I have just recently turned 30 and I started to notice not long before my 30th birthday my face started to breakout really bad. Not only did I notice it, but my mom did too. I have no idea why this started happening, but I need to fix this problem ASAP!! The only things I can think of are hormonal changes because lets face it, 30 isn’t old, but I’m not exactly considered a spring chicken anymore either, or it could be all the junk I was eating around the Holidays. I have heard that people can suffer from adult acne and pray to GOD this is not the case for me! I did suffer from slight acne in my teens and had to see a Dermatologist and I don’t want to have to deal with that again. I mean come on, I can’t be 30 and have my face look like a hormonal raging middle schooler, that’s just to much for one person to handle!! Plus it doesn’t help that I look like I’m 15 to top things off,  I really would look like a hormonal raging teenager! Not good for my image, just kidding 🙂 Anyhow, my mom does her favorite thing in the world and that is to jump on Google and read her essential oil handy-dandy book to research everything and anything!! My aunt does the same thing by the way 🙂 Very useful those 2 are!! My mom came to me and told me to try this essential concoction on my face. I did try it for a few days, but one of the oils was little to harsh to put on face straight out of the bottle. So I did a little investigating myself and found a bunch of things on how to make your own face wash. My mom had all the oils I needed with her on hand, I had the rest in my pantry except for the castile soap. That was the only ingredient I had to go purchase. I made this face wash and have been using it for a couple of weeks now, and have to say my skin looks a lot better!!! I will continue to use this from now on and won’t go back to buying over the counter face wash. The best part is that it’s all natural!! Give this a shot if you suffer from breakouts.

Here is the recipe for the face wash http://beautytips4her.com/homemade-natural-facial-cleanser-more-expensive-is-rarely-better/

This is what mine looks like. I used an empty shower gel bottle to store it in, nothing fancy. I also changed the oils to create mine. My mom and aunt are distributors for a company that sells essential oils, they have everything under the sun, so I used purification essential oil and Frankincense essential oil to customize mine.
