The effectiveness of this recipe is due to the powerful ingredients it combines. For one thing, baking soda is an amphoteric compound, meaning it can maintain normal skin pH levels and prevent acne breakout.
On the other hand, coconut oil packs amazing antibacterial, healing and moisturizing properties. It is extremely beneficial for improving skin health.
2 tsps. extra virgin coconut oil
1 tsp. baking soda (aluminum-free)
Blend the ingredients in a small bowl to create a paste-like mixture.
Apply the paste to your face rubbing it in gently.
Let it act for around 5 minutes.
Rinse it off with lukewarm water massaging your face at the same time.
As coconut oil will deep-hydrate your skin, you don’t need to use a moisturizer afterwards.
