Face Washes & Cleansers for Sensitive Skin

Before looking at some of the best commercial brands, let's take at home made cleansers for sensitive skin.

Homemade Face Wash for Sensitive Skin.

Milk for Delicate Skin
Milk is one of the best cleansers for beauties with delicate skin. Dabbing few drops of milk on a cotton ball and gently wiping all over face removes all dirty dust giving you nice clean skin without any stretchy feel. One must take care of the quality of milk according to their skin type.  Like people with oily acne prone skin can use skimmed fat free milk which is non greasy and dry skin could use creamy milk or even the milk cream all by itself for extra moisturization.

Honey as Gentle Cleanser
Honey is again a very good facial cleaner for all skin types specially sensitive. Being anti bacterial and anti fungal in nature it kills all bacteria and fungi which cause the main reason for allergies and reactions on delicate skin. Cleaning face with honey not only keeps skin away from infections but also kills the bacteria present on the skin giving you a natural healthy skin.

Coconut Oil as Soothing Genlte Cleanser for Sensitive Skin
Now this Coconut Oil is quite famous and available in most of the households. But it's mainly popular in the haircare section, very few people use this as a facial cleanser and fail to realize it importance in the same form. Pure Coconut Oil contains Lauric Acid,  which is found in Mother's Milk and from this fact I suppose you can imagine how wonderful this product would be use on sensitive skin.  The only thing taken into consideration is that if you have acne prone skin you use the oil in pure organic because it's best to use Extra Virgin Coconut Oil on Acne Prone Skin.

Aloe Vera Gel as a Cleanser on Sensitive Skin
Aloe Vera Gel itself is a wonder product and many doctors beauticians recommend using pure aloe vera gel for sensitive skin. One can extract the pulp from the aloe leaf found in the aloe plant and apply in on the face. Leave it on face for few minutes and then rinse off. On daily basis one can use any ready made aloe vera gel which is in the pure organic form and dab it on some cotton ball for a nice cleansing effect. This way it does not react on sensitive skin. One can rinse with lukewarm water if found to be sticky, followed by a moisturizer for sensitive skin.
