Cleansing balms are getting quite popular and have originated from Korean skin care. Cleansing balm helps remove all dirt and sebum and also makeup which is then followed by a foaming face wash to thoroughly cleanse and purify skin. It helps keep skin clean and clear and prevents pore clogging. There are a lot of cleansing balms and oils in the market but nothing can beat 100% all-natural product! Below is a recipe for DIY cleansing balm-
Shea butter- Is non-comedogenic, helps melt away makeup and all the dirt and excess sebum on skin and cleanses pores.
Almond oil- Has skin nourishing, moisturizing and brightening properties.
Beeswax- Gives the final product a nice balm-like texture and consistency. Can be skipped if you live in cold weathers. Also has great skin nourishing properties.
