How to Make a Homemade Exfoliating Face Wash

In today’s world, pollution of all kinds is one of the most important issues plaguing our planet. Apart from having destructive affects on the over all environment, the pollution also affects our skin. Tiny particles of dirt  can block the pores on your skin that let air in and out. As a consequence of this, your skin may become dull and unattractive.

Because most of your skin is covered, facial skin is the most vulnerable to pollutants ruining the skin. Having the pores of your facial skin blocked by tiny particles can cause you to appear a lot more aged than you actually are. If you live in a city where the air pollution levels are high, then you are at risk from this happening to your facial skin. In order to prevent this, you have to exfoliate your skin using a high quality facial wash.

You will need to stop using your ordinary soap which you use to wash your face and hands and replace it with the exfoliating face wash. This is an amazing beauty product that opens up all the blocked pores on your skin and also removes all the dirt and other particles that were blocking them. In this article, we will show you how you can avoid buying some expensive exfoliating face wash and going to a spa or beautician to have it applied to your skin.

The ingredients to making a high quality exfoliating face wash can be found in your very own kitchen. Below, we will list some of the commonest ways to make exfoliating facial washes and you can try out various ones and select the one that works best for your skin type.

One of the most effective natural exfoliators of the skin is the pineapple.


  • One large pineapple
  • 3 tablespoons of virgin olive oil

How to make it:

Take the large pineapple and peel it into fine and medium sized slices. Put these slices into an electric blender and add in the 3 tablespoons of virgin olive oil. Blend these ingredients for a few seconds, until a smooth and fine face wash has been formed.

Now pour this paste into a bowl and use your hands and fingers to apply it onto your face, just like you would while washing your face. Use circular motions lasting one minute, to rinse your face in every part of it. After that, leave the face wash on your face for 10 to 15 minutes. Finally, rinse it off with water and then dry your face with a towel.

2. Oatmeal Face Wash2

This is another effective natural facial exfoliant.


  • 3 teaspoons of witch hazel
  • Enough water to moisten the oatmeal
  • 3 tablespoons of oatmeal

How to make it:

Take the 3 tablespoons of oatmeal and mix it with the 3 teaspoons of witch hazel in a large bowl. Now pour some water into the bowl and stir it until a thick but smooth paste has formed. This is the facial exfoliating paste. Dip your hands and fingers into the mixture and liberally apply it to your face, using circular and outwards strokes.

Let the mixture stay on your face for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse and wash your face thoroughly.
