Why You Should be Using Natural Cleansers

Do you have trouble finding a good cleanser for your skin type? Are you sick of paying an exorbitant amount for brand name products? It might be time to make the switch to an all-natural cleanser. Here are a few of my favorite cleansers for any skin type:

1. Manuka Honey.

Yes, you read it right: honey. Manuka honey is antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, hydrating and contains healing properties- serving as the perfect cleanser for your face. Just take a spoonful from the jar and mix it with warm water and apply it to your skin. You can use a facial brush or your hands to apply the honey to your skin; just make sure to put your hair up before.

2. Coconut Oil.

I’m sure you’ve heard of using coconut oil as a moisturizer for your body or for a face mask, but it’s also a great face cleanser. Coconut oil is antibacterial, anti-fungal and exceptionally hydrating.  You might need to work a little harder to get the residue off your face after you use it, but your skin will be left clean and moisturized. For those who have oily skin, I don’t recommend using this, but for everyone else you should be good to go.

3. Tea Tree Oil.

Tea tree oil is another natural product that is anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory making it a great choice for those who have oily, combination or acne-prone skin. Tea tree oil is great as a body wash and can serve as an alternative to soaps that contain parabens and fragrances.
