I love going and getting a facial. They are so relaxing, and so good for your skin! The bummer is that they are typically expensive, which means I can’t get them as often as I would like. I asked the facial technician if there was anything I can do at home to help keep my skin clear and healthy in-between facials, and she said that it is so important to exfoliate. She told me that it doesn’t have to be expensive, it can be as simple as using baking soda! So when I got home, I did some research and found an awesome tutorial for a simple and healthy face exfoliant. This scrub cleans your skin, kills bacteria, and clears the dirt and dead skin from your pores. Plus the ingredients are really commonly used, so you probably have them sitting around your house right now! Here is how to make it:

        1 tablespoon coconut oil

        1 teaspoon baking soda

        (optional) 5 drops essential oils

Take the coconut oil in a medium sized bowl and melt it a bit if it is solid. Add baking soda slowly and stir it until it is well mixed. Finally, add essential oil and stir again. To use this scrub, take a teaspoon of it and gently scrub it on your face for about 30 seconds, then rinse it off.

This scrub not only fights acne, but it can also help reduce acne scarring by removing the layers of scarred skin over time! I love using natural products on my face, don’t you?

XOXO,

Exfoliation is one of the keys to clear skin. It makes your skin smooth, scrubs the dead skin off, and helps clear your pores! Today’s diy face wash is all natural and gives you all the benefits of a store bought exfoliant without the harsh chemicals. It combines baking soda (which is much less harsh on your skin than salt and sugar which are common exfoliants), coconut oil (which helps kill bacteria and decrease acne), and frankincense essential oil (which helps prevent wrinkles and regenerate healthy skin cells).

Instructions:

  • 1/3 cup baking soda
  • 5/10 drops frankincense oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

All you have to do is mix all of these ingredients together and store them in a container with a lid. That is it! To use it, gently rub a teaspoon or two into your skin using circular motions and then rinse off with warm water.

Exfoliation is key to healthy skin! Make this concoction part of your weekly routine to keep your skin glowing and clean.

XOXO, Chels

Baking soda: we all have it sitting in our kitchen cabinets at this very moment. Baking soda is so versatile and has so many amazing beauty uses. It can be a brightener, exfoliator, acne treatment, and anti-bacterial agent. Here are a few ways you can start using baking soda in your beauty regimen! Who knew you could find beauty products in the produce aisle? J

  • Teeth whitening: Baking soda is a natural bleach for your teeth. In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with a bit of water and salt and use it instead of toothpaste.download (1)
  • Hair cleansing: Shampoos and conditioners leave a lot of build-up on your hair, and baking soda can help clean that buildup off. Mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a cup of water and apple cider vinegar and pour this mixture over your hair. Then rinse it out and feel how smooth your hair is!
  • Mini manicure: dip a soft, wet toothbrush into baking soda and use it to scrub the dead skin around your nails.
  • Skin exfoliation: mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 1 tablespoon of water or apple cider vinegar and gently scrub your skin. This will help tighten your pores and prevents acne because it is a natural antibacterial.
