1# Baking soda
Baking soda is one of the most common household ingredients. In fact, it has a number of uses around the house – for baking, as a cleaning and deodorizing agent, for personal hygiene etc. This ingredient is the ideal natural alternative for many harsh and toxic cleaning products. Plus, it’s used in many homemade cosmetic and beauty products – teeth whitener, all-natural deodorant, etc. On the plus side, baking soda never fails to give positive results.
In addition, baking soda restores skin pH balance and is very effective in treating acne, which normally break out as a result pH imbalance.
2# Coconut oil
Just like baking soda, coconut oil is another natural ingredient with amazing medicinal properties – antibacterial, healing and moisturizing, all of which can effectively nourish and sooth your skin. Below we give you the best homemade deep cleaner.
What you need:
- 2 tsps. organic extra-virgin coconut oil
- 1 tsp. aluminum-free baking soda
What you do:
Get a small bowl and mix the ingredients until well blended. Apply the paste on your face in circular motions. Leave it to act for 5 minutes then wash it off with warm water. Again use circular motions to remove the paste off your face. Pat-dry with a clean towel. You don’t need to apply a moisturizer afterwards as the coconut oil deep-hydrates your skin.
Using the treatment regularly will make your skin smooth, soft and, best of all, wrinkle-free.
