How to Cleanse a Face Using Wheat Husk

With all our busy schedules, our facial skin very often receives much less attention than it actually deserves. This will often result in scaly, dry and unhealthy skin. What to do? Making your own facial treatment to remedy this damage is one quick way to slough off these dead skin cells, so as to rejuvenate your skin for a glowing, healthy complexion. You can whip up one such home remedy using wheat husk, a naturally nourishing skin defoliator.

Cleansing with Nutrition

Begin by assembling all ingredients before you begin to make your wheat husk cleanser. This way you’ll have everything handy when you begin.

Slice off a thick slice of cucumber. Without peeling the slice, rub it over your entire face with small circular motions. This is a simple yet effective prep for cleaning your face and opening up your facial pores so as to get the maximum benefit from the wheat husk facial. Use a lukewarm cloth to gently wipe your face and then gently pat it dry.

Mix one teaspoon of the wheat husk with just enough water to form a paste. Apply this paste to your face with gentle, circular motions. This simple scrub will slough off dead skin cells, with a tingling, gentle stimulation.

Rinse off the wheat husk with some cool water. This will serve as an astringent, helping seal your facial pores. No soap is necessary and, in fact, would only dry your skin.

Deep-clean Your Face with Wheat Husk

Mix ¼ cup wheat husk with ¼ cup kaolin in a bowl. Stir in 2 tablespoons honey and 2 tablespoons milk. Apply the mixture to your face using gentle, circular motions. The wheat husk will exfoliate old skin cells, while the honey and milk will moisturize your facial skin. Rinse it off with lukewarm water.

Roughly chop up the ripe tomato. Puree it into a pulp using a fork. Measure a ¼ cup of the pulp into a bowl and stir in one tablespoon of wheat husk. Apply it to your face and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse it off with cool water.

Between each deep cleaning treatment, keep your face toned and conditioned by rubbing half a lime or lemon all over your facial skin. Repeat this every three days.
