DIY Pomegranate Cleanser

This recipe is the easiest one that I make so I thought it fitting as a first entry. It's simple, fast to whip up - and absolutely effective....... leaving the skin refreshed, cleansed, and supple.... all of this without over-stripping your natural oils. If you presently use a high-foam soap product - this will feel different - It is a non-foaming, light cleanser and your skin will love you. There are many different versions of this recipe.. but the staple ingredients remain the same - and there's really only 3 that are absolute essentials. 

Ingredients :

1. 1 Tbsp pomegranate
2. 1 Tbsp Besan (Gram flour)
3. 1 Tbsp honey

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix. Apply the mixture on your face and neck and keep on for 30 minutes. Rinse away with warm water.

Skin Type : All
