Homemade Cleanser for Face

After a long hard day at work, when you return home the first thing you would want to do is wash your face. And why not! The dust, grime and grease accumulated on your face in the course of the day due to pollution and other factors weighs you down and you just want to get rid of that muck once and for all. The gentle splash of cold water on your face and eyes does the trick and  perks you up to feel clean, refreshed and relaxed both physically and mentally.  Now when you are tired and eager to wash your face, concocting a DIY recipe would be the last thing on your mind and you would naturally reach for that store-bought face wash, cleanser or soap. But then the results would not be as dramatic as the below mentioned yogurt one or this tried and tested homemade face wash. (The latter one can be prepared well in advance and stored for months together.)washing-face
