We have seen different product being paraded by the cosmetics industries as cleansers. Some good, some not so good due to the fact that the ingredients used may not agree with your face. This may negatively affect your face by giving you breakouts. I learnt this method I’m going to show you from my mother and it’s cheap, simple and very effective.
I call it the simplest natural method because you only need two things; salt and water which is readily available in your house.

 What you need;

A bowl of warm water

Half teaspoon of sea salt.

And lastly, a white handkerchief
Dissolve the salt into the bowl of warm water, then dab the white handkerchief inside the water and gently wash your face avoiding the eye area. Leave the water on your face for like 5 minutes, then wash off with cold or lukewarm water and moisturize. Salt is a natural exfoliate that sloughs off dead skin, it also cleanses your skin pores deeply and balance oil production. salt has anti bacterial properties which help to fight pimple as well.

Do not use too much salt because too much salt tends to dry out skin and cause irritation. Do this two to three times a week; you will notice a difference in your face.

Use sea salt not table salt as sea salt contains a wide range of necessary minerals like calcium, magnesium, chlorine, iodine, potassium, zinc, iron and trace minerals, but in the absence of sea salt, you can as well use  table salt.  I use that at times and the result is always the same.

For those in Nigeria, you can purchase your sea salt from konga, jiji or shoprite.
