In order to maintain clean and healthy skin, facial cleanser is part of our daily skin care. Some acne – fighting and exfoliating facial cleansers and masks have little beads that ”polish” the skin and take the dead layers off, and the creamy and cleaning base helps to moisturize and condition.
You can make natural cream at home that is very cheap. You will need only two ingredients you probably already have: coconut oil and baking soda. Not only are these two ingredients readily available, they are also highly effective in treating problematic skin. Unlike the chemicals and toxic ingredients in normal store-bought cosmetics, these two ingredients are safe for your skin, and can be eaten as well. This is exactly what you need when finding products to treat the body’s largest organ from both the outside and inside.
When mixed together, these two products work very well in treating acne, redness, scarring and removing excess dirt, oil and exfoliating dead skin off. The final results are amazing.
Baking soda or more precisely sodium bicarbonate, is often used in homemade baked goods, as a polishing agent, a deep cleaning and deodorizing agent for household use. It can replace many harsh and toxic household cleaners and provide excellent results.
Baking soda is used as cosmetic (such as teeth and deodorant) as well. It is a natural beauty solution, also highly effective in treating acne. Most often an imbalance in pH can cause skin breakouts, and being an amphoteric compound, baking soda can be used to correct the skin’s pH balance, therefore aid in healing breakouts.
The coconut oil has antibacterial, healing and moisturizing properties that condition, nourish, and soothe the skin’s blemishes. It is a much gentler product than baking soda, and when mixed together, coconut oil balances out baking soda’s harshness, making it safe for even the most sensitive skin. You can use any kind of natural coconut oil, but wet-milled traditional virgin coconut oils show better results.
How to Use Baking Soda and Coconut Oil as a Deep Cleanser
– Coconut oil
– Baking soda
Depending on your skin type, determine the amount of each ingredient.
For more sensitive skin, use at least a 2:1 ratio of coconut oil to baking soda. If you need more of an exfoliator, use a 1:1 ratio.
Just mix the ingredients and apply the mixture on your skin. You can use it like a mask for a few minutes or like a peeling with gentle circular motions.
Every time you want, prepare little amount of this mixture.
