Homemade Face Wash for Every Skin-Type

I have very oily skin ~ even though I'll soon be 53 years old. I have made my own face wash for oily skin for about 5 or 6 years, now, & plan on using it for as long as I can. I very rarely have acne anymore . . . ask ANYONE who has known me before I found put together my simple-but-effective recipe. (It's also great for back or check acne.)

But I have had some friends & customers at the health food store I work at ask me about an effective face wash for drier skin-types. And even oily skins can use this for those occasional dry patches ~ yes ~ we all get them, especially in the winter months.

This recipe is very effective and so easy to make ~ whether you are acne-prone (use occasionally) or dry (can be used daily) you will benefit from this!

You will need:

~1 ts honey
~1 TB cream OR whole milk
~1 ts oats (finely crushed works best)


1) slightly warm the honey ~ 5 seconds in the microwave is fine
2) mix in the cream/whole milk
~this mixture in itself is a great face wash . . . but if you want a little bit of exfoliation . . .
3) mix in the oats
4) w/your finger, apply the mixture w/gentle rotating motions around your face; avoid lips & eye area
5) rinse w/warm water & splash w/cool water; dry gently w/a towel.

Let me know how you LOVE it.

  1. Going to give this a try...I'm a Noxema girl from way back. I've found that when I exfoliate,I tend to break out, maybe to harsh of a product, so I generally stay away from it. This of course being al natural would be more gentle. thank you..

  2. Ok how do you store this? Does it have to be kept in the fridge or do you have to make up new batch every time you wash your face?

    1. Nope, you don't have to keep this in the fridge b/c you only make small batches. This recipe is for 1-2 applications, depending upon how much you use. I know that's a little inconvenient in our "made-for-convenience" times, but homemade always takes a little more time; but it's always worth it. :-)


  3. Sounds like that mixture would feel just great!

  4. Hi Kim........I am on vacation today and thought I would come by and say hi. Time is sooooooo limited for me. Your blog is beautiful as usual and I will be looking at some of your home helps. They look wonderful. I love it when you can use things right from your cupboard!

    Hope all is well with you.........hugs sweet friend,

  5. Hi, thank you very much for help. I am going to test that in the near future. Cheers
