DIY 3-Ingredient Facial Cleanser for Oily Skin

Skin Type: Oily and Acne Prone

Hello, ladies!

Spring is here to make everything beautiful. Even our skin gets its freshness back after the dull winter. I have oily skin and it tends to become tired very quickly. But using a face wash twice is harmful for the skin and might cause dryness. For days when you wish to cleanse your face frequently, a DIY cleanser is the best option. I always prefer to use gram flour as a cleanser to remove excess oil from the face, but this time I found two more ingredients that work amazingly to keep the skin fresh and clear. This DIY cleanser is very easy to prepare and requires only three ingredients. So, read on to know more.

Skin Cleanser with Coconut Water Cleanser

Ingredients and their benefits:

Gram Flour:
Gram flour is a well-known skin cleanser. It cleanses the skin deeply and removes excess oil from face. It also works on various skin problems like tanning, dark spots, acne, dullness and it makes the skin appear bright. Gram flour keeps the skin radiant, glowing and smooth. It also removes unwanted facial hair.

Coconut Water:
Coconut water is a very soothing ingredient for the skin. It offers great skin hydrating properties and acts as a skin conditioner. It also removes pigmentation and is effective on dark spots. It gives a glowing, even and youthful skin. It also reduces acne. Using coconut water in the morning is great for your skin.

Lemon fights against various skin problems like ageing, dark spots, acne, and pigmentation. It works as a natural skin brightening ingredient. It is a skin purifier and can control oil. It also makes your skin look and feel fresh.


⦁ First, you need 1 tablespoon of gram flour in a bowl. I used store-bought one but you can also prepare it at home.

⦁ Now add 1 tablespoon of fresh coconut water to it. Mix all the ingredients well and make a smooth paste.

⦁ Add ½ spoon of fresh lemon juice to this paste. Combine all the ingredients nicely. If you have very sensitive skin or if your skin gets irritated by lemon then you can use aloe vera juice or cucumber juice instead.

⦁ Your facial cleanser is ready!

⦁ Massage this cleanser gently all over your face and neck area. Keep massaging it in for around 5 minutes and then leave it on as a mask for another 5 minutes. Rinse with normal water.


Gram flour is a traditional way to cleanse your face. It makes your skin smooth and fresh. Lemon removes oil from the face and makes the skin clear and shine free. This cleanser instantly provides a fresh, clean and bright look to the skin. It also adds hydration. My face looks glowing and healthy whenever I use this cleanser. It has never irritated my skin and never broken me out. It has also removed the dull, tired texture from the face. This is one of the best ways to pamper our skin naturally. I hope you will enjoy this recipe.
