Rebekah Greiman's blog at There she posts food recipes, homemade household products, remodeling projects, garden tips and more. "I’ve found it’s the best outlet for me to be creative and to share what I have easily with others. My friends would always ask, 'How did you make that?' or, 'What was that recipe?'. So, instead of emailing everyone, I started to blog," she said.

Greiman's frugality led her to make her own skincare products. "I like to save money wherever I can and I think a lot of other people do too," she said. "I was spending $60 a month on skin care-like most women, or $720 a year-that’s ridiculous."
The benefit of saving cash mixed with the added benefit of using ingredients safe for the environment made homemade face washes a no brainer.  "It’s inexpensive and it’s so easy to do. Plus, most ingredients that are in beauty products and skin care are not regulated by the government," she said. "Most skin care lines use alcohol to cleanse, which in turn dries the skin out by robbing it of its natural oils. Because of this, most people then slather on moisturizer-which contain perfumes and chemicals to make the lotion thick, which causes breakouts and acne. So, people wash their skin more and dry it out more, etc."

She's seen the difference on her own face. "My skin which was typically dry especially around my nose, is wonderfully soft and smells great," Greiman said. "Plus, my sun spots are starting to fade-thanks to the oatmeal! By eliminating the use of alcohol and chemicals on your skin, the skin will adjust and balance out its natural oils."

The do-it-yourselfer wants everyone to know how easy it is to make homemade face products with only a few products. All of the ingredients in this segment include oatmeal, aloe vera gel, vegetable glycerin, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil,
extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and tea tree oil.
