Slowing down the aging process and reducing the wrinkles, age spots, and dark circles is something that we all wish for. However, most of the facial skin care products are ineffective, but are expensive, rich in harmful chemicals, and offer only short-time effects.
On the other hand, baking soda is one of the most beneficial natural remedies used to improve skin quality and health, and its properties have been recognized and appreciated for centuries.
It is found in almost every kitchen cupboard, and this strong natural ingredient can do wonders not for the skin only, but it also improves the health of the hair and the whole body. It is an inexpensive, but highly effective, way to improve overall health.
It is actually sodium bicarbonate, a crystalline natural substance which is most often found in the form of fine powder and represents a potent medical tool in the fight against various health problems, from colds to oral problems to skin issues.
Apparently, baking soda has powerful antibiotic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties, and offers countless health benefits.
Namely, it slows down aging by boosting the production of collagen, rejuvenates and moisturizes the skin, treats acne and pimples, acts as a potent antacid, whitens the teeth, neutralizes body odor, fights urinary infections, and much more.
Here is how to make a natural baking soda skin care product that will provide amazing effects in only a month:
- Sodium bicarbonate
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/2 lemon
- 1/2 glass of water
Every night, before bedtime, squeeze the juice of the lemon, pour it in the water, and then add the baking soda, honey, and apple cider vinegar. Stir well and apply it on the face. Leave it to act during the night and rinse it off in the morning.
