There are millions of cleansers and face scrubs on the market, but the truth is you don't really need to spend a lot of money to nurture your skin the right way.

With some basic home ingredients, you can easily make your own, effective facial treatment, with no chemicals or other harmful components, and get rid of all that dry, dead skin.

1. Sweet Scrub: Mix a small spoon of sugar with your usual cream or shaving soap. Rub this mixture all over your face. Remove it with a wet washcloth and splash your face with cold water in order to close the pores. After that, your skin will feel soft, very clean and ready to moisturize.

2. Salad Mix: Mix olive oil and vinegar in a bowl. Apply a small portion all over your face and wait a few minutes. While it's still wet, rub it gently with your fingers. You will be surprised with all the dead skin that will come out with this mixture. After that, just rinse your skin with fresh water.

3. Yogurt Blend: Mix 3 spoons of natural yogurt with a spoon of lemon in a bowl. Apply it to your skin while massaging with your fingers. Leave it for a few minutes and then just remove it with fresh water. Your skin will feel fresh and completely clean.

4. Oatmeal Mash: Make a mixture with oatmeal and water with the right consistency, not too thick, not too liquid. Apply it all over your face and wait a few minutes until it dries. Remove it gently with your fingers. Because oatmeal is filled with natural cleansers and lubricating fats, your skin will feel clean and smooth.

5. Hot Sauna: Boil a pot with water. Add some lemon juice and/or peel, as well as some different herbs, like rosemary, thyme, basil, peppermint etc. Protect your hair with a cap and cover your head with a towel while leaning over the hot liquid. Let your skin absorb the vapors during 15 minutes inside this improvised sauna in order to clean your pores. Be careful not to burn yourself. After this, wash your face with cold water to close your pores. Don't do this treatment more than once a week, as you may eliminate your natural oils.

All these methods are great to clean your skin, but don't forget to moisturize it after doing any one of these treatments. You can also adopt some good habits on your daily routine that will definitely help you maintaining a clean, healthy skin. Drink a lot of water to eliminate toxins and have a nutritious diet, rich in fruits, vegetables and fibers. See? It's so simple.
