Cleaning the face on a daily basis is a really useful routine that provides a clean and healthy complexion.
Facial cleansers and masks have tiny beads that eliminate the dead layers, and cleaning bases and moisturizing creams leave it hydrated.
Expensive products for the skin sometimes fail to deliver the promised results, and may contain chemicals that harm your health. Therefore, you can make your own natural cream that can provide all the needed nutrients for your skin.
The recipe that we suggest today contains only two ingredients: coconut oil and baking soda. These both can already be in your kitchen, but they are extremely efficient in the treatments of problematic skin. In contrast to all the over- the- counter cosmetics which contain harmful chemicals and toxins, this mixture is completely safe and can even be eaten.
This powerful mixture offers fantastic effects in the treatments of scars, acne, redness, elimination of excess dirt and oil and exfoliating dead skin off.
Baking soda, apart from its innumerate other uses, can be utilized as a deodorizing, polishing agent and a deep cleansing product in your household.
Use it instead of those dangerous and toxic purchased products. Moreover, it can be used for whitening teeth and as a deodorant, as a remedy against acne. It regulates the pH of the skin and as it is an amphoteric compound, and helps in healing breakouts.
On the other hand, coconut oil has strong healing, moisturizing and antibacterial qualities that beneficially affect the skin and nourish it, while alleviating skin issues.
Its action is gentler, and thus it regulates the harsh effect of the baking soda, so their combination is safe in the case of sensitive skin. Note that the wet-milled traditional virgin coconut oil will provide best results.
Here is the recipe of this remarkable deep cleanser:
Baking Soda and Coconut Oil Deep Cleanser
- Coconut oil
- Baking soda
The amounts of the ingredients used in the recipe are set according to the skin type. For instance, in the case of sensitive skin, use them in ration 2:1. If you want to use it as an exfoliator, prepare the mixture in ratio 1:1.
Combine the coconut oil and the baking soda and apply their combination on the skin. You can massage the skin gently with circular motions and immediately wash it off afterwards with warm water, or you can use it as a facial mask and leave it to act for several minutes.
This miraculous mixture can provide amazing effects in a completely natural way! So, do not hesitate to try it!
