Would it shock you if i told you I haven’t put a drop of soap on my face in the last two weeks? Would it shock you even more if I told you my skin is now clearer with a more even tone and less red marks? Well, it shocked me! Facial cleansing grains is what it is all about. Basically your skin doesn’t need a soap to be clean. These facial cleansing grains are full of ingredients known to benefit your skin, while leaving it as smooth as a baby’s bottom. (I’m not kidding, it really does!)

Start off by removing your makeup with Oro de Sonora Pure Jojoba. Most people don’t know this, but instead of using a store bought makeup remover with 20 different ingredients or even those diy makeup remover recipes, you can just use one ingredient, jojoba, to get all your makeup and gunk off your face. Once you have removed all your makeup, it is time for the facial cleansing grains.


1/2 c.    Oat Flour: softens + moisturizes skin + reduces the appearance of wrinkles

1/4 c.    Almond Flour: exfoliates skin + moisturizes + provides emolliency

1/4 c.    Ground Flaxseed: rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids + hydrates + reduces redness

2 T.       Fullers Earth Clay: absorbs oil + deep cleans + diminishes acne scars

2 T.       Bentonite Clay: absorbs + removes toxins + heavy metals + impurities

1 T.       Lavender Flowers: calming aromatherapy + exfoliates skin

(If you don’t have oat flour, almond flour, or ground flaxseed, you can easily make your own from oats, almonds and flaxseed)

All you have to do is pour some of the grains into the palm of your hand, add water and mix together. Apply to your face and neck and rub in a circular motion for as long as you’d like. (It feels so good, sometimes I do it for a minute and don’t even realize it.) Of course, you can buy facial cleansing grains, but why not just make them yourself?



Happy Cleansing!
