Today im going to talk about the natural homemade scrub that I use.
I always thought natural remedies never work compared to chemical skincare products.
Lately I’ve switched to natural home remedies for skin problems.
And their working wonders for my skin.
Also this natural scrub doesn’t cause ant breakouts.
So the only scrub that i use twice a week or whenever I feel like I need some facial scrubbing is a paste of baking soda and water.
Yes that its, thats the scrub I use.
I have oily combination skin.
Actually an oily T-zone on my nose and the rest of the skin is normal.
But my face tends to look oily if I don’t control the oil.
So this scrub is not very gentle nor very harsh, But perfect for facial skin.
it has medium coarse crystals of Sodium Bi-carbonate.
Sodium Bi-carbonate is actually baking soda in common terms.
Don’t get confused with baking powder, thats a bit different, as baking soda is a more pure form of Sodium Bi-carbonate.
Baking Soda Scrub is Useful and recommended for:
Oily, combination skin & normal skin types.
To Reduces large pores.
If you have whiteheads and blackheads.
Some say, it even helps acne. I haven’t checked on that yet.
But i do feel when you keep the oil under control, thats a preventing acne and breakouts.
At least for me.
How to make the Baking Soda Scrub:
Mix half teaspoon on Baking Soda with some drops of water to make a medium consistency paste.
Scrub for about 10-15 seconds, not more.
Do not use near delicate eye area.
wash off with cold water.
Follow with a moisturizer or a sunscreen if you’re going out
Not suitable for dry and sensitive skin.
little redness is expected after usage.
However, reduce the quantity of Baking soda in the scrub next time, if you experience redness.
May irritate sensitive skin.
Do not use over existing acne.
Moisturisation is a must after using this scrub because its quite drying.
Also remember to use a sunscreen if you ex-foliate, before stepping out in the sun.
