Many skin care products promise us that they will restore our “natural beauty”, make our skin “flawless” and that they will help us to “say goodbye to acne”.
But all these products contain dangerous chemicals, whose names we never heard of. And many of these products not only do they have harmful ingredients, they are released without being previously tested.
The executive director of the Children’s Health Environmental Coalition, Elizabeth Sword said that there are industry trade secrets and formulations that are kept from the consumer because of industry reasons and this prevents the consumer from making fully informed decisions.
So, if you are one of the people who would want to avoid the health risks of such commercial products and to get rid of skin blemishes, you should make your own facial scrub which contains two ingredients – baking soda and coconut oil.
The coconut oil is a natural oil and it is very beneficial because it has powerful moisturizing, antimicrobial, and antibacterial properties and it will clean your face and eliminate your pimples. You can treat various skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema with this oil.
Baking soda is a strong face exfoliator and it will help you to eliminate blackheads, to soothe sunburns, to soften your skin and to fight various skin conditions.
Here are the ingredients you need to make your homemade coconut oil and baking soda facial scrub: ½ cup of coconut oil and ½ of baking soda.
All you need to do is mix the ingredients in a smaller, shallow jar or another suitable container until you get a homogeneous mixture. Scrub your face with this mixture as you usually do, and the experience you’ll get will be amazing benefits.
