There are numerous skin care products on the market that promise to restore our “natural beauty”, make our skin “flawless” and help us “say goodbye to acne”.
However, most of these are loaded with dangerous chemicals, whose names are completely unknown to us. Despite these harmful ingredients, many products are released without being previously tested properly.
Elizabeth Sword, executive director of the Children’s Health Environmental Coalition, claims:
“There are industry trade secrets and formulations that for industry reasons are kept from the consumer. This prevents the consumer from making fully informed decisions.”
Therefore, to avoid the health risks of such commercial products and get rid of skin blemishes, you should make your own facial scrub. It contains two ingredients: baking soda and coconut oil.
Coconut oil is one of the most beneficial natural oils you can use, as it has powerful antimicrobial, moisturizing, and antibacterial properties. It will clean the face and eliminate pimples. Moreover, this healthy oil treats various skin conditions, including psoriasis and eczema.
Baking soda is a strong face exfoliator, which will help you eliminate blackheads, soothe sunburns, fight various skin conditions, and soften the skin.
Now, here is how to make your homemade coconut oil and baking soda facial scrub:
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup baking soda
In a smaller, shallow jar or another suitable container, mix the ingredients until you get a homogeneous mixture.
Use it to scrub the face as you usually do, and you will experience amazing benefits!
