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?

Having healthy skin is one of the simple pleasures in life. A homemade coconut oil face mask can help you get there! Coconut oil is naturally rich in antioxidants and healthy acids and will soften and lubricate healthy skin cells, break down dead cells, heal acne, and hydrate skin. How does this homemade mask work?

Coconut oil’s structure allows it to infiltrate skin pores to soften rough skin from within. Honey is a natural humectant, which hydrates skin cells. The last ingredient is lemon juice. Fresh lemon juice helps tighten and shrink large pores.96070-OrganicCoconutOil

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

 

Combine the above ingredients in a small bowl. Apply a thick coat of mask mixture onto your clean face. Allow the mixture to sit on your face for 10 minutes and then rinse it off with cool water. Pat your face dry, don’t rub it.

Now get ready for clear, soft skin!

Did you know that there is a right way to wash your face? Well, according to many beauty experts, there IS! There are a few key things to keep in mind when you are cleansing that façade of yours, and I am here to make sure you are completely filled in on what they are. Clean skin= clear skin!

Here are some steps to take to take when washing your face.

  1. Start off by washing your face with warm water and a cleanser. Dry your face with a clean towel.wash-face
  2. Apply facial toner and wait for it to dry. Toner is great for those who have oily skin.
  3. Next, apply any acne medications or topical treatments. If your dermatologist has prescribed you an acne prescription, apply it now!
  4. Apply a moisturizer. Moisturizer is so so so crucial! I like to use coconut oil as my moisturizer on occasion. It helps heal my acne scars and is a great anti-aging treatment! Also, moisturizer is important because dry skin actually makes your skin produce more oil, so those with oily skin beware!
  5. If you are preparing to put on makeup, apply a makeup primer!

Boom, you are done! You have now washed your face like a total pro. Like I said earlier, having a clean, moisturized face keeps acne away and does wonders for your skin!

Let me know if these tips help you keep a squeaky clean face!

I am always looking for new natural beauty remedies. A lot of times, choosing to make your own beauty concoctions is a cheaper alternative to buying them, and they are a lot better for you! Here is how to make your very own refreshing exfoliating mask!

Ingredients:NH-SO10-orange-slice

–          Oranges

–          Baking Soda

That is all you need! I love beauty remedies that have very few ingredients because they are simple, which means they are easy to make and easy to find the ingredients to! So, take a tablespoon of juice from your oranges and one tablespoon of baking soda and mix the two ingredients together in a small bowl to create a paste. Spread a thin layer of the paste on your face. Leave the mixture on for about 20 minutes, and don’t worry if it starts to tingle! That means it is doing its job.  Dampen your fingertips and scrub the mask in a circular motion to exfoliate your problem areas. Rinse the mask off of your face and admire your skin! Not only will you smell like a citrus goddess, you will have super clean glowing skin.

Like I said, I love keeping things all natural and homemade. Try this mask and see what you think! You may even have these ingredients laying around your kitchen. Bonus!
