Sodium bicarbonate, or ”baking soda”, 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.
Meanwhile, coconut oil has antibacterial, healing and moisturizing properties that condition, nourish, and soothe the skin’s blemishes.
Baking Soda and Coconut Oil Power Cleanser
- Two teaspoons of extra virgin coconut oil
- One teaspoon of baking soda (free of aluminum).
Take a small bowl, put the ingredients in it and mix them well. You should get a paste. Use this paste directly on the skin and rub the area slowly. After that, leave it for about five minutes.
Next, use warm water to wash the mixture and while you are rinsing massage the area one more time. The coconut oil has ability to hydrate skin thoroughly, so you won’t need to use a moisturizing cream once the procedure is finished.
We hope that this simple recipe will help your skin.
