Skin Care Recipes for Your Face

Keep your face clean, soft, and baby-smooth with these quick and easy facial recipes. You'll find that most of the ingredients are already in your pantry!
Milk Wash

For dry or sensitive skin, this recipe can't be beat. Make a thin paste out of skim milk powder and water and wash your face with this mixture instead of soap. Rinse well and apply Herbal Milk Toner.
Honey Purifying Scrub

Mix 1 tbsp. of honey with 2 tbsp. finely ground almonds and 1/2 tsp. lemon juice. Massage gently onto face and rinse well with warm water. Apply toner.
Herbal Milk Toner

This is a terrific toner for sensitive, sunburned or chapped skin. Combine 2 tbsp. dried or 1 tbsp. fresh chopped herbs (we recommend lavender, calendula, lemon balm, or mallow) and 2/3 cup boiling milk into a bowl or pitcher. Cover and leave until cool. Strain through muslin or cheesecloth and store in a sterilized bottle or jar in the refrigerator.
Mint Skin Toner

To create a refreshing skin toner that will hydrate and clean your pores, mix 1 cup witch hazel, 1/4 cup white vinegar and 1/4 tsp. mint extract. For good measure, drop in a couple of fresh peppermint leaves. Dab on your face with a cotton ball and apply moisturizer.
Rosy Skin Toner Recipe

For a rosy glow that lasts all day, combine 1/2 cups witch hazel, 1/2 cup dried rose petals, and 5 sprigs of rosemary. Mix ingredients until blended well, then strain with cheesecloth or muslin. Splash onto skin or dab with a cotton ball and apply moisturizer.
Frankincense Facial Mist

A favorite to erase wrinkles is made with ten drops frankincense in 4 oz. of water. Pour into a mister and spray onto skin throughout the day.
Anti-Wrinkle Honey Rose Lotion

Mix 2 tbsp. glycerine, 2 tbsp. rosewater, 2 tbsp. witchhazel, and 4 tbsp. honey in a small jar. Refrigerate: apply nightly to a clean, dry face after toner.
Soft Skin Lotion Recipe

Steep 1 cup dried chamomile in 1 cup milk for 2-3 hours. Strain, keeping liquid, and add 4 tbsp. honey and 8 tsp. wheat germ. Blend, pour into a bottle and refrigerate (keeps up to a week). Apply to clean face after toner.
