4 recipes of using baking soda face scrubs for acne. One of them is based on tomatoes effectively cleanses the skin from old cells.
Any face scrub must meet several conditions:
- It should have antibacterial properties to prevent the spread of any infection.
- Any recipe must contain ingredients that could help to heal minor scars.
- It have to act delicately so as not to rip off acne but treat them.
Tomato scrub with oatmeal and baking soda meets these conditions, the more that we can successfully use them in the face mask for acne.
I often use oatmeal in my mask recipes for the density of the mixture. Besides it’s one of the soft exfoliators. Another advantage of oatmeal – it soothes irritated skin.
Baking Soda Face Scrub for Acne with Tomato
Soda has antibacterial properties so I recommend adding it to any scrub for acne.
Peel tomatoes and grind it into a food processor or with multiquick.
By the way do you remember that we are trying to make a mask with cooking something delicious side by side? So I suggest you to chop some tomatoes and to make a homemade natural tomato juice.
It’s very tasty if you add a little salt. Do not forget to leave 2 tablespoons of juice for our scrub.
Mix the juice of shredded oatmeal and baking soda.
Apply the scrub onto the face. Massage your skin in circular motions.
You can leave mixture while drinking tomato juice. Rinse off immediately if you feel a tingling sensation of the skin. Wash your face with cold water and blot with a tissue.
You will do this often if you like tomato juice.
Baking Soda Face Scrub for Acne with Honey
Acne prone skin type requires careful maintenance. Homemade face scrub should clean and disinfect the skin. The main cause of acne is hormonal imbalance level. To get rid of acne you have to pass the respective treatment. Homemade scrubs and masks clean excess oils and sebum from the skin and prevent the infection spreading.
Compound all components into a uniform mixture. Drip a little of lemon juice. If honey candied a little bit it’s good but it’s difficult to stir. If so, add some water.
Begin to rub scrub with gently movements paying particular attention to problem areas. Be careful to prevent paste getting into your eyes.
Massage your face for 3 minutes. If there is no discomfort with the scrub on the face, leave it for 10 minutes.
After all rinse the scrub using cold water with a soft sponge. Blot the face with a paper towel and apply a soothing cream.
Baking Soda Face Scrub for Acne with Egg Yolk
Homemade facial scrub for sensitive skin must respond two implications.
- First, it should help us to get rid of old skin cells.
- Second, the scrub should not irritate the skin.
Not all products could get through this objective. I use two products for homemade scrub for sensitive skin: egg yolk and baking soda.
Baking soda is used in many homemade scrubs as mechanical exfoliator. It is suitable for sensitive skin because its granules are less than granules of sugar or coffee. Soda works more gentle than salt. It’s coming with antibacterial features at the same time.
The yolk is great for sensitive skin and is also used in many mask recipes (for example, An Egg Yolk Face Mask). In addition to its useful properties it has an adhesive structure. The yolk peels dead skin cells when it dries on the face skin and after they are washing away together with scrub.
Wash the egg. Crack it and separate the yolk from the egg white.
Leave the egg white for another mask or add it to baked goods. You can just throw it away finally.
Mix egg yolk with soda and with few drops of olive oil or 1-2 drops of tea tree oil or lavender. These aromatic oils soothe the skin.
Massage your face with circular movements of the fingers.
Wait until scrub dries. Wash it off with a washcloth. Pat the face and apply your favorite moisturizer on.
What do you feel?
Baking Soda Face Scrub for Acne with Sea Salt
Homemade facial scrub for oily skin should contain components with degreasing and disinfectant properties. Egg whites and sea salt cope with that task quite well.
The difference of those scrubs is that the third ingredient is baking soda instead of lemon. The structure of soda is more delicate and it works no worse than sea salt. Together they make a good pair considering the fact that soda also has a disinfectant effect.
Try which one of those homemade facial scrubs for oily skin you like more.
Separate the egg white and beat it to small foam with hand whisk. Drain some liquid egg white back to the yolk leaving foam on the plate.
Add the baking soda and salt and stir them thoroughly with the beaten egg.
Get a nice air facial scrub.
Spread it over your face with neat circular motion. Massage the problem areas to avoid contact with eyes. Get it away from your mouth. It does not taste good!
Keep the scrub on your face for few minutes if your skin does not feel irritated.
You can fry an omelet from remaining yolk while waiting.
Rinse off scrub immediately if you perceive a tingling sensation of the face skin.
Wash your face with cold water and blot with paper towel.
