Every woman desires smooth, healthy and glowing skin. Unfortunately, for some women this is difficult to be achieved since the skin on the face is prone to acne, blackheads, clogged pores, wrinkles and oil buildup.
Cosmetic companies take advantage of this issue by selling numerous beauty and cosmetic products which are too expensive. Some of them are weak and ineffective, while others are harsh due to the chemicals in their content which may harm the delicate skin on the face.
In order to get rid of all these skin issues which are not only a health issue but an aesthetic problem as well, we are going to present you a homemade remedy which will improve the look of your skin completely naturally.
You are probably familiar with the mighty benefits of baking soda and coconut oil. The remedy based on these two ingredients, rejuvenates the skin and cleanses it from all impurities.
It has antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties and it can be used as a lotion as well.
• Baking soda
Baking soda improves the overall skin complexion, fights acne and pimples and relieves sunburn.
It is mostly used as a deodorant and teeth whitener. It can effectively treat acne too. This ingredient can balance the pH level of the skin due to its amphoretic properties (meaning, it can act both as an acid and a base).
• Coconut oil
Coconut oil on the other hand, soothes the dry skin and it has antimicrobial and moisturizing effects. It permeates the pores and cleanses all impurities due to the presence of healthy and natural fats in its content. It can be also used as a shave cream and cheekbone highlighter.
• 2 tablespoons of organic extra virgin coconut oil
• 1 tablespoon of aluminum-free baking soda
Mix the two ingredients and when you get a paste, apply it to your skin. If you have sensitive skin, use coconut oil and baking soda in a ratio 2:1. Massage gently in circular movements. Let it act for 5 minutes and then rinse it off. Massage once more during rinsing. You don’t have to apply moisturizing cream after this treatment since the coconut oil penetrates the deep skin layers and provides the necessary hydration.
The ingredients needed for this recipe are natural and affordable, so they cannot harm your skin. Use this remedy three times per week for 30 days and soon you will notice the desired results.
