Baking Soda Scrub For oily combination skin and Large Pores


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.

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.

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.

Also remember to use a sunscreen if you ex-foliate, before stepping out in the sun.

Different Hair Oils Benefits


This article is about the benefits of different hair oils. How you can use these oils to get rid of dandruff, hair fall, thinning of hair, Greying hair, etc. I like to use a mixture of hair oils.

For best results, use hot oil for massage at least twice a week. And follow-up with steaming. Steaming helps your scalp helps the oils to penetrate better. Overall, these oils improve the health of your hair and scalp which is damaged daily by chemicals in straightening, perming, hair dyes, gels, sprays, etc.
Some of you including me may have noticed, that when washing oiled hair, you see more of hair falling. However, that’s normal. Massaging oil into roots promotes the hair cycle of hair falling and growing. So, its not actually causing your hair to fall, but stimulating new hair growth
