Here is the recipe!

Ingredients:

1-2 tablespoons chickpea flour (aka gram flour, Besan)

1-2 tablespoons ground oats

Instructions:

Grind oats in a blender or food processor until finely milled. You can keep it grainy if you prefer that texture. Once the oats are ground, combine with the chickpea flour and place into a container. A small jar works best. To use, put desired amount in your hand and mix with water then apply to your face.

Tips/Notes:

-You can also use oat flour. But for some reason it’s more expensive to buy oat flour than to get whole oats and grind them yourself.
-Make sure you don’t combine the cleanser with water until you’re ready to use it. This recipe lacks preservatives, so pre-mixing with water will only make it expire sooner.
-If you wear light makeup or organic/natural makeup ½ a teaspoon was enough to remove the makeup from my face. If you wear heavier makeup you may need to cleanse twice.
-Oats are great for: absorbing and removing excess oil and bacteria from your skin, exfoliates dead skin cells, helps to fight dull, flaky dryness, enhances wound healing, improves collagen deposition, healing dry and itchy skin. Source
-Chickpea flour is great for: reducing oiliness, fighting pimples, and naturally lightens the skin. Source
