Take a look at any commercial exfoliating face and see a mixture of chemicals listed as ingredients. I’m not sure exactly how bad these chemicals are for the human body, but I know that many of them are prohibited for children and pregnant women. Any chemical that is not safe for a pregnant woman or a child probably should be avoided by all.
Luckily for us, when it comes to keep our skin clean and clear that there are a number of natural alternatives. To make this simple exfoliating face, just mix ground cloves, honey and a few drops of lemon juice. Your skin will thank you.
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 3 drops of lemon juice
- Mix ground cloves, honey and lemon juice in a small bowl.
- Apply the mixture to face. Wait 20 minutes, then wash it off.
- enjoy a clean and clear skin without all the chemicals!
