22 May Cleanser with honey – make your own washing cream
Honey has been used for centuries for medical and cosmetic purposes worldwide. Modern research is also increasingly discovering the healing power of honey for the treatment of wounds, scars, and burns. Especially in skincare honey scores with the following positive spectrum of effects. It is a natural humectant i.e. it ensures that moisture remains in the skin. The special enzymes contained in honey help to disinfect impurities and help the skin to heal faster. In addition, honey has a blood circulation-promoting effect, which allows swelling and redness to subside more quickly and keeps the skin elastic and smooth. Manuka honey is by the way considered to be the type of honey with the greatest antibacterial effects. This type of honey is therefore particularly suitable for acne and impure skin.
The good thing about this homemade face cleanser with honey is that it is suitable for all skin types. No matter whether mature, impure, or sensitive skin, the cleanser can be used. It should be paid attention that only natural honey is used. Look for the marking -unpasteurized-.
RAW MATERIALS USED
Due to the high content of phytosterols, avocado oil shows a good spreading behavior (spreadability) and is well and quickly absorbed by the skin (also into the horny layer of the skin). Due to the high content of palmitoleic acid avocado oil has regenerative properties and is well tolerated. Especially rough and dry skin benefits from the achieved lipidation of the skin.
Castor oil is very skin-friendly, has a very good penetrating power and softening properties. As an accompanying oil in body oils it cares for dry, cracked and brittle skin. Used pure, it lays a protective film against water and harmful substances on the skin.
Jojoba oil is well tolerated by all skin types and has a moisturizing and antibacterial effect. Due to its good deep action, it regulates the moisture balance and makes the skin soft, smooth, and resistant at the same time. Those who are plagued by impure skin may be well advised to use jojoba oil. Its antibacterial effect prevents the spread of germs without drying out the skin at the same time.
For home made cosmetics it is generally recommended to use distilled water. Normal tap water usually has too high a lime content and the ions in the water can negatively influence the properties of the preparations. You can also use boiled mineral water, but for cosmetic purposes, you also want to avoid minerals and bacteria.
Rose water is a sensitive hydrosol for dry, mature and sensitive skin. It also has a decongestant, soothing, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effect.
Lavender water can be used for all skin types. Due to its strong antibacterial effect, the hydrosol is mainly used for oily skin and for skin regeneration.
Castile soap is a natural and deep cleansing soap and therefore a natural product. It is made from a mixture of high-quality, nutrient-rich vegetable oils.
Essential lavender oil
The linalool, which is contained in large quantities in essential lavender oil, has anti-inflammatory and disinfecting effects on the skin, thus preventing impurities. It also supports the healing of red pimple marks. In general, essential lavender oil renews the skin cells and accelerates the healing process of the skin. Essential lavender oil is suitable for all skin types.
