Cowgirl Hotlist

Washing our faces is one of those things that happens routinely every day, and we typically stick with the same products we know and love. But have you ever wondered what it would be like to wash your face with an unconventional or all-natural product?  Sometimes it pays to think outside the box. Find out what else you could be washing your face with to achieve even greater skincare benefits and is probably already in your house! 

 

Oil

We know this sounds a little crazy, but washing your face with oil can actually cleanse it equally well as regular face wash and can make your face less oily! We know, it sounds counterproductive, but it’s not. Using the right kind of oil is essential. Crunchy Betty covers this topic in thorough form if you want to give it a try. So if you want to try a very natural method for cleansing your face, this is absolutely worth a shot.

Honey

Though this may seem surprising, honey is actually a tried-and-true cleanser. Granted, it may not work for everyone but if you’re in an experimental mood and want to take about two weeks to test this out, you may be surprised at the results. It’s all natural, no harsh chemicals and you know exactly what and how it’s produced. Find out how it worked for one woman who tested this theory out.

Clay

Clay masks work wonders for many people, but did you know washing your face with the key ingredient in those masks is another healthy and all natural alternative for cleansing your face? Moroccan Rhassoul Clay is a deep cleansing type of clay that can improve your skin texture, clean out your pores and improve your complexion when used regularly. Mix a little water in it and cleanse away. Not only can it do wonders for your skin, it can be used as a shampoo as well. You can find 100 percent pure Moroccan Rhassoul Clay available on Amazon, $20.

Organic Buttermilk

Washing your face with organic and non-pasteurized buttermilk or even Kefir or organic yogurt are all alternative ways to cleansing your face. The lactic acid in all of these, especially buttermilk, is the key ingredient that brightens, softens and exfoliates skin. In fact, it’s found in most beauty products because it is so essential. It also tightens skin and fades sun spots! Added bonus: you can also wash your hair with buttermilk to get super silky and shiny hair!
