Aging is a natural part of life, but who doesn’t want to look younger? It’s always nice to look in the mirror and see that you don’t have as many wrinkles. Keeping your skin healthy, fresh, and soft is a lot easier than you think. You don’t have to use eight different skincare products to make this happen. All you need are two ingredients.
A lot of skincare products contain toxins. Since your skin is the largest organ in the body, it can absorb toxins very easily. Not to mention, various makeup products, lotions, or creams can clog your pores, and that causes bacteria to get trapped. Too much bacteria can lead to acne or skin irritation.
This mixture contains coconut oil and baking soda. These ingredients work to cleanse your pores, decrease inflammation, and get rid of any dirt or oils. Additionally, they can help to balance the pH level of your skin, which helps to prevent further breakouts or blemishes. Because of this mixture’s cleansing properties, you can also use it to clean cookware or silverware. We just wanted to let you know that.
- 2 teaspoons organic, unrefined coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Whisk the ingredients in a bowl until you get a glue-like consistency.
- Gently massage this mixture on your face and leave it on for 5 minutes. Rinse your face with warm water and pat dry with a towel. Because the coconut oil helps to hydrate your skin, you don’t have to apply lotion after this treatment.
