    [FONT=&amp]CLEANSERS FOR OILY SKIN :[/FONT]

    • [FONT=&amp]Cucumber cleanser[FONT=&amp]:[/FONT][FONT=&amp]It’s an ideal cleanser for oily skin. Mix a little cucumber puree with half a pint of milk and keep it in the refrigerator for up to three days. Shake well before use. Alternatively if you grate half a cucumber and boil it in half a pint of milk gently for three minutes, cool, sieve, and bottle it, it will keep for a week.[/FONT][/FONT]

    • [FONT=&amp]Almond milk cleanser[/FONT]
    [FONT=&amp]2 teaspoons ground almonds
    1/4 teaspoons rose water

    Blend for 2 minutes, strain and bottle.
    [/FONT]

    • [FONT=&amp]Buttermilk and fennel cleanser[/FONT]
    [FONT=&amp]1/2 cup (125 ml) buttermilk
    2 teaspoons fennel seeds

    Heat the milk and crushed fennel seed slowly for 30 minutes in a double boiler. Leave to cool and infuse for 2 hours. Stain and bottle; this keeps in a refrigerator for up to a week.

    [FONT=&amp]1 oz (25 ml) Soya oil
    1 oz (25 ml) almond oil
    1 oz (25 ml) orange flower water
    1 oz (25 g) cocoa butter
    1 tablespoon (15 g) beeswax
    5 drops essential oil of neroli
    Mix and warm the oil. Melt the cocoa butter separately, then stir into the oils. Melt the beeswax and stir it into the oil mixture. Add the orange flower water, leave to thicken and cool. Stir in the essential oil as the mixture thickens; spoon into jars. Neroli stimulates the formation of new skin cells.

    Dear Sweetttooo,
    Your tips on almond milk cleanser is a useful one. I tried it without rose water, hereafter I do with the rose water.
    Thank you...:coffee
