Make Your Own Homemade Facial Cleansers . . . {4} All-Natural Recipes!

Are you looking for natural ways to wash your face?  One good thing by Jillee has 4 homemade, natural options for your face.  One might work for you.

 

All four of these cleansers have merit in that they don’t contain any detergent ingredients called surfactants. Surfactants are responsible for creating the lather you expect to see in soaps and many liquid cleansers, but the problem is they strip the natural lipid layer from the skin’s surface and destroy its protective barrier. In other words, they are simply too harsh for most skin types.

The good news is there are lots of home remedies you can try that not only are inexpensive compared to most store bought stuff, they are also environmentally friendly.

 
Let’s check them out.

Halloween Lanterns

These pumpkin lanterns are so cute!  The best part is you can make them with material that you have at home.

Halloween crafts

Materials:
Tin can
Clamp
Hammer and nail
Sandpaper
Metal primer
Acrylic paints: orange and black
Several yds of 18–20-gauge black annealed stovepipe wire
Tacky glue (we used Aleene’s Original)
Votive candle

Instructions:
Clamp can to table and poke holes for handle on opposite sides 1/2″ below top with hammer and nail.

Sand, prime, then paint outside of can orange.
Pencil outline of a jack-o’-lantern face on front and punch holes along outlines. Paint face black. Let dry.

Wind 27″ wire around a bunch of pencils or a thick dowel; remove and fasten ends in holes. Glue votive in place. When candle is lit, bend handle away so it doesn’t heat up.

Never leave candles unattended.

Milk Jug Ghost Halloween Decoration

Stationed on a walkway or porch, these homemade lanterns will extend a ghostly greeting and good-bye to all your holiday visitors.

What you’ll need

  • Clean plastic gallon milk jugs
  • Black permanent marker
  • Craft knife
  • String of 50 clear low-wattage holiday lights

How to make it

  1. Draw ghost eyes and mouths on the jugs. Tip: Leave the caps on while you do this, so the jugs don’t dent.
  2. Use the craft knife to cut a half-dollar-size hole in the back of each jug (a parent’s job).
  3. Arrange the ghosts near each other and string the lights between them, stuffing several bulbs into each of the jugs.
