When you have sensitive skin, it can be difficult to find a product that suits.For most, you will try everything on the market that claims to help. Some without success.

But sometimes the best thing you can do for your skin is to strip it right back down. Going natural and use the least amount of products as possible can be the answer to a lot of skin complaints.

Here are some natural cleansers-

Good for your skin and your bank balance!

Coconut oil

Studies show that using oil to cleanse your face is one of the purest ways to cleanse. It cleanses and moisturizes all at the same time. Use pure coconut oil and rub it onto damp skin, removing with a luke warm facecloth.


Body oil

Oil dissolves oil so it is a no brainer to use body oil as a cleanser. You can adapt this natural cleanser to you own preference too with the use of different oils. All you need is- 80ml of castile soap, 80ml of honey, 3 tablespoons of boiled water, 2 tablespoons of nourishing oil. Almond, jojoba, avocado, olive, apricot or argan work well. Mix together and there you have it!


Dr.Bronners is an organic and natural multi-functional soap. As above you can add a few ingredients to it or actually use their castile soap on its own as a cleanser. It comes in different scents and has a plethora of uses. It is recognized as organic on the foods standards board which technically means it is edible. Using it as a cleanser for make-up removal or not is effective and so gentle. Lather some in your hands before rubbing it all over you face and neck. Use a lukewarm face cloth to remove. You will feel the difference immediately.

Soap Free Homemade cleanser


For some, their skin can even be too sensitive for soap. A homemade cleanser that is soap free and natural is perfect for all skin types. All you need is three ingredients aloe vera, avocado oil and frankincense oil. Add 45ml of aloe vera, 15ml of avocado oil and 4/5 drops of frankincense oil to a bottle and give it a shake.
