or sodium bicarbonate is often used in baking, as a polishing agent & for deep cleaning/deodorizing around the house.
I use it instead of the many harsh and toxic household cleaners & get great results. Sprinkle some on half a grapefruit & clean the bath!
Baking soda is also used for cleaning teeth & as a deodorant too. As a a natural beauty solution it is effective in treating acne & can correct the skin’s pH balance & help to heal breakouts.
The combination of bicarb & coconut oil is great for getting deep into your pores to prevent acne and blackheads & removing excess dirt, oil and exfoliating dead skin.
Coconut oil is antibacterial & moisturising but you can use any oil you prefer. I use hemp oil or rosehipseed oil…
Baking Soda and Coconut Oil Facial Cleanser
Only make enough for one treatment at a time & wash your hands beforehand just as you would when preparing food to prevent bacterial contamination.
Mix 2 tspns of coconut oil [or oil of your choice] with 1 tsp of bicarb to make a paste. Apply to your skin & massage in. Leave for 5 minutes & rinse with luke-warm water. Pat dry. You may not even need to apply moisturiser afterwards.
