Coconut oil is an amazing ingredient when it comes to eliminating the wrinkles and deep cleaning your pores. Moreover, it can also prevent acne breakouts and blackheads, which many women find problematic. When combined with baking soda, you get the most powerful mix against all types of skin problems, including treating acne, redness, scars and removing excess dirt from your skin pores. It can also be used as an exfoliating scrub, to remove the dead cells and you won’t believe how effective it is. Just give this powerful mix a chance, you won’t be disappointed from the results.
Apart from being commonly used for baking, this ingredient is a deep clean and deodorizing agent. Plus, it’s an amazing alternative to harsh household cleaners. Baking soda can give great results in tooth whitening as well. Last, but not least, it balances skin pH levels thus preventing the outbreak of acne.
Coconut oil is rich in antibacterial, moisturizing, and healing properties that nourish and soothe even the most problematic types of skin. It perfectly complements baking soda, when the two are mixed together, because coconut oil reduces the harshness of baking soda, and makes it perfect for all skin types. On the plus side, any kind of coconut oil is great for skin care, but the most beneficial is cold-pressed organic oil.
