Facial cleansers should be a fundamental part of a daily skin-care regimen. With items from your kitchen, you can concoct a safe and effective blend. Oatmeal is a mild and soothing skin cleanser that is especially well-suited for sensitive skin, while honey is a natural antiseptic that can also work as a luxurious mask all on its own.
