Aloe Vera Gel has salicylic acid which helps in unclogging the pores and prevents acne causing bacteria from building up. It also keeps the skin moisturized without giving it a greasy and oily feel. Tea tree, Peppermint and Lavender Essential oils are known for their anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Tea Tree oil is a popular choice if you have acne prone skin as it may help prevent acne breakouts. Menthol in peppermint oil cools as well as soothes the skin. While Lavender oil moisturizes the skin and is non-comedogenic for pores. It also lends a calming and soothing aroma to the facial cleanser blend. Coconut milk being rich in Vitamin C, helps to maintain the elasticity of the skin. Using this in the blend prevents wrinkles and skin sagging. Regular application may help to keep the skin young, smooth, supple and blemish free.

In a glass bowl, mix all the ingredients thoroughly. Apply this blend on your face and neck. Gently massage the blend into your skin using outward circular movement. Leave it on the skin for a couple of minutes or till the skin absorbs the blend. Use a cotton pad or a soft face towel to remove the traces of oil from the skin. Soaking the cotton pad or towel in warm before removing the cleanser will give better results.
