Homemade Facial Cleanser

I tried a great homemade facial cleanser recipe this morning.
My skin felt sooo good and hydrated.
I have had a rather bad bout of dry skin lately and this cleanser was full of hydrating ingredients.
Better yet, you can make it from scratch and it is completely natural!

Homemade Facial Cleanser

1 cup plain yogurt
1/4 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
{optional} 1 tsp coconut oil

Mix ingredients thoroughly and smooth a handful over your face for about a minute.
Rinse with cool water.

Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Have a lovely day!
I will be back later this week with my first post on amateur beekeeping!
My bees arrived and they are in the hive...and no stings for me:)!
Whoo Hoo!

This sounds great!
And I can't wait to hear about the bees -- I want bees so back, it's silly, but I have to wait one more year! I shall beekeep vicariously through you!

My sister-in-law and I are going to try the cleanser out next weekend! Yay for no bee-stings! Looking forward to the post on bee keeping :)

The cleanser sounds lovely and refreshing! If I remember to pick up some plain yogurt I will give this a try.

I'd love to have bees one day. Can't wait to hear your beekeeping story!

I should try this, too. Thanks for the "recipe".

Have I ever told you this...?

I love your music on here.:)

My daughters and I are planning an at home diy spa day this weekend, and we're going to make your cleanser. Perfect timing! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Also, I'm looking forward to hearing about the newest addition to your farm family, the bees.

Cool! I've been needing a natural facial cleanser. Great job on the beekeeping! I hope to be one in the future, so I'm happy to learn all I can. =)

What a peaceful blog to stumble upon!

Your last post immediately caught my eye as I've been using almost the same recipe for years except about once a week I add some rice bran for exfoliating purposes.

Looking forward to your bee keeping posts!

Just returned to let you know I loved this recipe so much I featured it today. Actually, I love your entire blog so much maybe I should just cut and paste it all into mine!! : ) Thank you so much for your inspiration.
