Gentle Rosemary Mint Face Wash

Posted by on Jan 3, 2013 in Skin & Hair Care | 0 comments

Recently Kim posted her recipe for a makeup remover and although I use it for my eye makeup, I’ve stuck with my regular face wash for cleansing my face and neck because, in addition to removing my makeup, it improves my skin tone.

The recipe contains castile soap which is an effective cleanser while the vegetable glycerin helps soften, soothe and moisturize skin. The witch hazel is a gentle astringent and toner. Rosemary essential oil can lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles as well as clear acne, blemishes and dull dry skin by fighting bacteria and regulating oil secretions while improving circulation to promote healing. The peppermint essential oil is for scent and leaves you with a cool, soothing sensation but it doesn’t do anything for your skin and can be left out if you don’t enjoy it.

This is recipe is so gentle I only have to moisturize after cleansing my face in the winter but the essential oils do irritate eyes, which is why you want to use the makeup remover for your eye area.
