Washing your face every day is a basic need which has a profound impact on the quality of your skin. This is why it’s important to wash your face with healthy ingredients that won’t harm your fragile facial skin. Finding the right product can be a challenge, as we all have different types of skin, so it’s mostly a practice of trial and error until you pick the right product. The price can vary from low to very high, and most people only look at the price before buying a product. This, however, is a bad habit that can have negative consequences on your health.
The cheaper cosmetic products can clean your face on a daily basis, but the more expensive ones can treat acne and other skin problems. However, no matter the price, they all contain harmful chemicals that can do more harm than good.
These products are full of fillers and toxic ingredients as well as phthalates, which are often absent from the labels. Many of these products are put on the market without being previously tested, so you can’t know for sure if they are healthy for your skin.
Make your own facial mask
If you want to keep your facial skin healthy, there’s a simple ingredient that can help – baking soda. It’s cheap and easy to use and will make your skin smoother and softer in just a short time. Mixing baking soda with coconut oil will clean your skin deeply and make it glow completely naturally and without any side-effects.
Why should you use baking soda?
Sodium bicarbonate, or baking soda as we know it, is a baking ingredient that can be also used for cleaning or as a deodorizing agent. People often use as a cosmetic product as well, as it can treat acne and other skin problems. Baking soda can regulate your skin’s pH balance and prevent breakouts, effectively improving its quality from within. The compound is free of chemicals…
Why should you use coconut oil?
Coconut oil is a powerful healing, hydrating and antibacterial agent that can nourish and soothe your skin. It is not abrasive like baking soda and can be used even on the most sensitive skin. Coconut oil will also kill any bacteria on your skin that might be causing problems and moisturize it properly. According to studies, the natural oil can effectively reduce the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis as well as other skin disorders. However, when buying it, make sure you’re getting virgin coconut oil as it is rich in antioxidants.
