Editor’s Note: Our member flysauc  shares a very interesting and easy homemade recipe for making a fragrant face cleanser.

It is ideal for those who are averse to using chemical face washes as well as those who have more faith in natural remedies more than those found in the market.

It is advisable to first ensure that your skin doesn’t react to any of the ingredients by doing a skin-patch test before using the cleanser on your face.

Writer’s Note: After lots of trial and errors I found something which made my skin look bright and clear, therefore sharing the recipe.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1/4 cup moong dal (I used skinless only).
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats 
  • 2 orange peels 
  • 1 lemon peel
  • 2 tbsp kasturi manjal powder or fresh turmeric ( you will have to dry it first)


I used orange and lemon peel which I left it out on the counter top to dry. Then I powdered the orange and lemon peel coarsely and added all the items and gave it a nice Whirrr! (You can use the mixer)

Voila homemade safe skin cleanser is ready. Before shower I add 1 tsp of 100 % Aloe Vera gel (Trader’s Joe) to 1 tsp of this powder and mixed it well and washed my face with it.

I have been using the same for the last one week and it has made my face bright and clear.
