The mixture of coconut oil and baking soda can provide an excellent face treatment and prevent acne and blackheads. These two ingredients absorb deeply in the skin and treat redness and scarring while at the same time removing excessive dirt, oil and dead skin. The results on your skin will be amazing!
Apart from being used as a great household agent in polishing and deodorizing as well as in baking homemade goods, sodium bicarbonate or “baking soda” is proved as highly effective in cosmetic due to its amphoteric properties. This natural solution can help correct the skin`s pH imbalance which is the main causer of skin problems such as acne and blackheads. Its polishing effects can now be seen on your face, too!
While the sodium bicarbonate removes the dirt from your pores, the coconut oil has antibacterial, moisturizing and healing characteristics that soothe and nourish the skin blemishes.
How to Use Baking Soda and Coconut Oil for Facial Cleansing?
• 2 teaspoons of extra virgin coconut oil
• 1 teaspoon of aluminum-free baking soda
You should use the same mixture only once. Mix the ingredients in a small bowl and make a paste. Apply it gently on the skin with circular motions and leave it on your face for no more than 5 minutes. Rinse it with warm water while massaging your face again with circular movements. Dry the face by patting it with a clean towel. You don`t need to add a moisturizer since the coconut oil will also hydrate your skin.
