Homemade Aloe Vera Face Wash

The Benefits of Aloe Vera Face Wash

Sensitive skin and cleansers never seem to just get along. All we want to do is get all the oil and dirt off our faces like everybody else! Yet, time after time, we use cleansers that claim to be gentle, we wake up with blotchy faces. We say no more! We’re going to take matters into our own hands — literally, with a homemade sensitive skin face cleanser.

We've designed a recipe that is super easy to follow, is truly gentle and actually works! We know this because we have tested it on the most sensitive skin we could find. The result for our sensitive skin friend was no residual blotchiness, irritation or inflammation. Everyone’s skin is unique, but we think that your skin will like this. 

First, let's talk about how to get the most out of your face washing routine.

Face Washing Best Practices

What: A cleanser is a facial care product that is used to remove oil, dirt, and other types of impurities from the skin.

How: Remove any makeup, wet your face, and then apply a small amount of cleanser. Gently massage your face in a circular motion. Rinse cleanser off and then pat your face dry!

Where: Where the action is – your face and neck.

Why: To keep your face clean, looking young, and vibrant/be a goddess.

When: Every morning before putting on makeup, and in the evening after you take your makeup off.
