Therefore, your skin requires a deep cleansing routine. You should wash your face properly at least twice on a daily basis to keep your facial skin healthy and glowing.
But, it actually depends on what type of product you use to wash your face.
In fact, there are many different types of face washes and cleansers on the market. Most people do not look at the ingredients of these products since they think the products are all-natural and 100% effective.

Plus, they are inexpensive. The ingredients found in the homemade face wash recipe presented below are probably available in your kitchen.
Health benefits of coconut oil
Coconut oil contains all the nutrients your skin needs and will also keep it hydrated. The oil has anti-inflammatory properties as well, and will regulate your facial skin’s pH balance. Topical application of coconut oil can deep clean your pores and remove all the impurities and chemical residue left behind by the use of commercial skin care products. Plus, the oil can enter your skin deeper than anything else thanks to its ability to bond to protein.
Baking soda has a mild abrasive texture which can remove dead skin cells from your skin and clean your pores deeply. It has amphoteric properties which makes it a great acne treatment, and will keep your skin’s pH levels balanced while also refreshing it.
Here’s how to prepare the remedy:
– ½ a cup of raw coconut oil
– ½ a cup of baking soda
Just mix both ingredients well, then rub the paste on your face and massage in small circular motion. Leave it to work for 5-10 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water in the end. For best results, we suggest using the remedy 3 times per week.
