Have you read about the positive benefits of baking soda? You can use it in countless ways to clean the household, so why not use it to clean your skin? Today, we are going to reveal a wonderful recipe for a natural remedy that will help you exfoliate your skin, deeply clean the pores, get rid of blackheads and eliminate acne and redness.
This mixture contains two ingredients, one of which is baking soda. Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, is probably the most versatile ingredient that is used in one household. You use it in homemade baked goods and as a deep and deodorizing cleaning agent. It is an excellent replacement for the toxic commercial cleaners and can also be used a polishing agent.
Despite that, soda is also used in cosmetics. It is natural beauty solution that is often used to treat acne. Baking soda restores the pH levels of the skin and therefore prevents the skin breakouts.
The second ingredient is also the well-known coconut oil. It has an amazing antibacterial and moisturizing properties that will condition the skin and reduce blemishes.
In order to prepare this deep skin cleanser, you will need:
- 2 teaspoons of organic extra-virgin coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of aluminum- free baking soda
Add the baking soda to the coconut oil and mix until it forms a paste. Gently apply the paste to your face using a circular motion. Leave it to act for 5 minutes but no more! Rinse with warm water and gently massage the skin afterward. Pat with a clean dry towel and you are done! Since the coconut oil moistures the skin, you don’t need to apply any additional moisturizers.
