DIY: Make Your Own Natural Face Wash

Have you ever checked out the ingredients in your chosen facial cleanser? As with all personal care products, you always want to be careful about what you’re putting on your skin!

Earlier this year, we covered our top five favorite face washes for teens. We totally stand by these great products, but did you know that you can also easily learn how to make your own face wash?

Making facial cleanser is simpler than you might think. It’s easy to customize your own creations, so if you’ve got specific needs due to your skin type, you can make something that works for you.

Four simple and awesome everyday products that you can use to clean your face include honey, yogurt, oil and cleansing grains (see 11 One-Ingredient DIY Face Masks for more tips!). But if you want to go for something specific that’s worked for us, we’ve included a favorite recipe below:



  • A clean spice jar with a lid
  • A box of pure baking soda
  • Jojoba oil
  • A glass bottle with a dropper lid
  • Skin-safe pure essential oil (like lavender or peppermint)
  • An awesome, pure honey (optional)


1. Fill the spice jar with baking soda.

2. Mix the jojoba oil with a few drops of essential oil in the glass bottle.

3. When ready to use, shake the spice jar once into your hand, mix the baking soda with three to five drops of the jojoba oil mixture and a small dollop of honey (optional). Spread on to damp skin and massage gently. It might tingle a bit (fun!). Wash off with warm water and pat dry.

    How did people find this worked? Like, would you say it works better than the store bought face soaps?

    This sounds like a good facial wash! I like to mix honey with a pinch of turmeric and rub it over my face. It helps with acne!
