Exfoliating your face skin has become an increasingly popular part of the beauty routine of men and women alike.
The idea is that the mild abrasive nature of the product removes dead skin cells to create an even texture, promotes blood flow and cleanses pores (1).
With increasing awareness about the environmental effect of plastic micro beads found in popular exfoliation products (2), it’s definitely worth looking into more environmentally friendly and non-toxic skincare options.
Why Use Baking Soda And Coconut Oil?
This combination is great for getting deep into your pores to prevent acne and blackheads.
Baking soda is amphoteric, which means that it neutralizes ph imbalances by acting as either an acid or base (3). Ph imbalance is one of the leading causes of acne, dry skin and blackheads.
Baking soda also targets inflammation and redness to heal distressed skin and minimize the size of pimples (4).
