Cleansing is the most important part of the daily beauty regime. What better than cleaning your face early morning with a natural facial cleanser?
DIY Turmeric Orange Facial Cleanser is a natural face cleansing powder that is made from orange peel and raw turmeric powder. It is a herbal, fresh, pure and natural facial cleanser powder that deeply cleanses the skin without stripping it off its natural oils.
Benefits Of Turmeric
Turmeric has antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties that help the skin in healing from any kind of wounds, scars and cuts. It also helps in clearing acne and provides a youthful glow to the skin. Turmeric is also used in getting rid of skin tan.
Benefits Of Orange Peel
Orange and orange peel are rich in Vitamin C and loaded with anti oxidants. Orange peel is used on skin to renew dead skin cells, act as a mild exfoliator and to protect skin from sun damage. It also adds a natural glow to the face.
How To Make DIY Turmeric Orange Facial Cleanser
Making of DIY Turmeric Orange Facial Cleanser is very simple and easy. Follow the instructions listed below and you will have an invigorating facial cleanser ready.
2 tablespoons raw, unprocessed turmeric powder
1 cup dried orange peel powder
- Mix the two powders together in a consistency you desire
- Store in a jar
- Your facial cleanser is ready
How To Use:
To use the powder, take a spoonful of the powder mix from the jar. Add few drops of rose water or milk to make a paste. Apply the paste evenly on the face and rub gently all over. Wash off with cool, fresh water.
You will need dried raw turmeric powder for this. To make the powder, dry raw turmeric in shade for few days and grind. Similarly, collect fresh orange peels and dry them in shade. Grind them to make fine powder. This drying usually takes 3-5 days.
You may add turmeric as per the consistency you desire. Some people do not like the yellow tinge turmeric leaves on their face. In that case, you can lessen the quantity of the turmeric powder in the cleanser mix.
In addition to rose water, you can also add 2-3 drops of lemon juice for added freshness and scrubbing effect.
This goes on easily for more than six months as both the ingredients are dry and do not expire soon.
The mix can also be used as a face mask. To use it as a face mask, mix one tablespoon of powder with milk or malai (milk cream) and make a thick paste. Apply the paste evenly all the face and leave on for about 15 minutes. Wash off with plain, cool water.
If you have acne prone skin, you can substitute malai with rose water. Drops of lemon juice can also be added.
