Baking Soda and Coconut Oil Face Scrub Recipe
Make this easy homemade baking soda and coconut oil face scrub recipe to help shrink pores and conquer blackheads while cleansing your face at the same time.
Baking soda has long been used as a home remedy to help tackle tough acne and pimples. This baking soda and coconut oil face scrub recipe takes that notion and adds naturally cleansing oils to help clean your skin and exfoliate it at the same time.
Keep in mind, though, that there are mixed reviews on using baking soda as a home remedy for acne. I’ve read a lot of both negative and positive information on using baking soda in a scrub or mask as an anti-acne treatment. Some find that baking soda works wonders on their acne. However, there are others who are super sensitive to baking soda. And if this is you, and baking soda causes uncomfortable redness or burning, then ditch the baking soda and opt for trying this coconut oil face scrub recipe using fine sugar or apricot kernel meal in lieu of the baking soda.
Following are a few baking soda and coconut oil face scrub recipes you can try based on your skin type. But feel free to experiment with your ingredients to find the best match for your skin type!
