There is nothing better than healthy, smooth skin without any wrinkles. Unfortunately, most of the commercial skin care products that are available contain toxic, dangerous chemicals that not only cost a fortune but also are dangerous for your health. The good news is that I’m going to tell you how to wash your face and get rid of those wrinkles and saggy facial skin.
If you want your skin detoxified and cleaned, you only need two ingredients to make this anti-wrinkle and anti-aging cream. The ingredients that you need are coconut oil and baking soda.
According to the Daily Health Post, baking soda is amphoteric. This means that it will neutralize the ph imbalances by acting as a base or acid because it’s an alkaline substance. It also contains anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties according to Healthline.
The Daily Health Post explains that coconut oil can be an incredibly nourishing moisturizer because of its antibacterial and antiviral properties. Those properties can help heal skin conditions such as dry skin and eczema. According to Ted Lain, MD, a dermatologist in Austin, Texas, coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer and a great anti-inflammatory, so its use for treating eczema is on the rise.
Whitney P. Bowe, MD, a dermatologist at Advanced Dermatology PC in Westchester and NYC, agrees that the combination of anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-bacterial and hydrating products that coconut oil and baking soda contain, makes this anti-wrinkle and anti-aging cream unique. She adds that the saturated fats and medium-chain fatty acids that coconut oil contains are what hydrates the skin and repairs the skin barrier.
To make this natural recipe, you’ll need two teaspoons of organic extra-virgin coconut oil and one teaspoon of aluminum-free baking soda. Take the two ingredients and mix them together in a small bowl. Ensure that when you’re mixing them they form a paste which you will gently apply to your skin in a circular motion, says the Daily Health Post. Leave it on your face for five minutes and then rinse it off with warm water by massaging your skin in a circular motion again.
One thing to remember is that these two chemicals can be harmful if you are allergic to them. Also, they can also irritate your skin if you have sensitive skin so be careful when applying it. If you feel any burning sensation or develop a rash from this, remove immediately.
