Cleansers remove excess oil, makeup, grime, and dead skin cells while maintaining moisture
Cleansing is to be done of your face and eyes with a separate makeup remover or micellar water every morning and night. It’s also good to cleanse after a heavy sweating. Some might require moist skin, while others cleansing oils and balms need dry skin. Rinse with lukewarm water after massaging for 30 seconds to a minute.
Unscented water-based cleansers devoid of alcohol and aroma are recommended for most people.

The following naturally occurring substances individually are very good for the skin:

The best thing about coconut oil is that it absorbs quickly into the skin and forms moist protection on top, without any greasy effect.

Sap from a freshly sliced Aloe Vera plant gives the required moisturizing effect that we try to simulate with chemical products.
Ancient Egyptians used their Aloe Vera plants as cleansers and hydrator.
It is equally effective in bringing healthy shine to the hair.
Many cultures eat this Aloe Vera Sap for health and good gastrointestinal health.
Skin Care with Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar contains a potent acetic acid that gently kills off germs from the skin surface and clears splotches and stains.
This cleansing effect means fewer chances of developing acne, as pores breathe easier.
The same cleansing effect happens inside the gut while it promotes healthy bacteria.
Argan Oil for the Skin
Argan oil (from the Argan plant found in Morocco) is rich in natural Vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants, all substances required to arrest and reverse skin damage.
It reduces the appearance of wrinkles, lines, scarring, and stretch marks.
All this occurs due to extensive exposure to the sun.

Early Greeks used it to heal lesions and cuts.
Honey on the skin reduces breakouts, moisturizes, is antiseptic, fights rashes, and reduces scars.
Raw honey means freshly squeezed, unheated, unprocessed, and unpasteurized.
Over the ages, honey has been used to treat skin infections, dandruff, dermatitis, psoriasis, etc.
Not to forget honey has been called ‘healer of mankind’ in Quran itself.
Using Avocado and honey paste makes the skin look dewy and soft.
This moisturizer paste retains moisture, temporarily fills wrinkles and therefore complexion looks smoother.
Avocados are a source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium.
Avocados not only give the healthy fats that tighten and freshen under the skin, but it also helps in the absorption of vitamins, that promote skin health and immunity.
All of which impact how the skin radiates.
The warm water in which Green tea is made has its own digestive and hydrating benefits.

It is therefore a natural anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing ingredient.
