Every woman’s dream is to have healthy, flawless skin and radiating complexion. To achieve this, a lot of women spend hundreds of dollars on expensive cosmetic products on their quest to find the one that best suits their skin. But, sometimes easily available and cheaper products, such as common household ingredients, can provide the same, if not better effects on your skin.
The plethora of beauty products on the market are typically loaded with substances that can do more harm than good on the long run. Plus, they often make your skin addictive and once you stop using them, your skin goes back to its old looks.

Anti-Acne Face Scrub
- Baking soda
- Coconut oil
There are no set amounts to this recipe and you can adjust it to your skin type and needs. People with sensitive skin should use a ratio of two parts coconut oil to one part baking soda, 2:1. Those who wish to exfoliate their skin should use equal parts of each ingredient, 1:1.
Combine the ingredients in a small bowl but make sure you break up any lumps of baking soda before adding the coconut oil. Mix it all thoroughly, apply it on your face, massaging gently and rinse with warm water.
