Here’s what u need:
2 tbs distilled water
1/2 c olive oil
2 tsp baby body wash (any tear free soap)

To use, put on cotton ball, cotton pad, or just pour a small amount in your hand and massage around your face and neck. Then rinse with warm water or use a wash cloth with warm water to wipe off. Pat your face dry and mask in the glory of seeing your clean, pretty face in the mirror!

Do not be afraid of applying oil to your face. Oil, alone, will not bring you blemishes. Pimples, cysts, zits, blackheads, whiteheads…these are a result of several different factors including hormones, bacteria, dead skin cells and the buildup of these factors. Your skin naturally produces oil because it needs it. It is not a malicious force to be reckoned with; it is there for the benefit of your skin, allowing your largest organ to function properly. It is naturally occurring. Not only does your natural oil help lubricate, it also heals, protects, and moisturizes your skin so that it may function properly. Properly functioning skin is beautiful, clear, and glowing. Learning to work with your skin, not against it, will save you tremendously.

Glycerin. Glycerin is a humectant, which means it attracts moisture to your skin. It is a natural by-product of the soap making process. (Manufacturers actually remove the glycerin from their soaps, to be used in their more profitable lotions and creams).
