This is very easy to do. You do not have to go to shops to buy anything extravigant and this can be used for children as well as teens, adults and elders. If using for toddlers of babies, use 5ml of Lemon Juice and 25ml of Baby Lotion and 15ml of Body Lotion.
You will need:
25ml of Lemon Juice*,
1 Tea Bag,
20 grams of Talc(um) Powder,
15ml of Baby Lotion,
5ml of Body Lotion or Moisturizer.
Mix the Lemon juice and Body Lotion together in a bowl. Open the Tea Bag and pour the Tea into the Lemon mixture. Dispose the bag that the Tea was in. Stir the Tea so every bit of the Tea is covered. Add all of the Talc Powder, stirring harshly so that all of the Powder has been covered. Add all of the Baby Lotion, then mix so that all of the ingredients are in a paste. Wash the spoon up, then put the Face-Wash into a Fridge for 10 minutes.
(*If you don't have any lemon juice, just leave it out, or substitute it with any other Citrus Juice.)
Leave the Face-Wash on for 25 to 45 minutes. The longer the better! After the amount of time wanted on, splash the face with cold water before taking it off, then take it off using water with moisturizer mixed in to it. Once you have done this, drain the water and Wash away and pat face dry.
Using a gentle facial cleanser, wash face with warm water (washing with warm water will open up your pores for cleansing).
Rinse with cool water (cool water will close your pores, disallowing unwanted dirt to enter).
Pat dry. It is okay if your face is still a little damp! This will leave a little moisture on your face.
Once your face is clean, apply a small amount of good olive oil to your entire face as a moisturizer.
