For some reason lately my skin has been misbehaving! Maybe its getting use to the transition and the new lotions I have been using or maybe i am being reminded this is my last year in my 20’s! Either way I have been breaking out more often than usual as of late, and while this simply will not do, I have looked up home remedies and chemical free treatments.
A co-worker lent me a great book full of home remedies to treat anything you could think of. It is full of great remedies and recipes but one I have been using as of late is one to treat this silly acne I have been getting. It is so simple and costs basically nothing. It is effective, chemical and cruelty free, and makes my skin feel great
If you have sensitive skin this may not be the best mask for you as the baking soda will exfoliate to get rid of dry or flaky skin. Apple Cider Vinegar is an astringent that will kill bacteria and draw out impurities, but it may sting just a little, especially when reacting with the baking soda.
What you need:
Apple Cider Vinegar ( I put mine in a small spray bottle to leave in the bathroom)
Vit E oil
What to do
Make a paste in the palm of your hand or a little bowl with baking soda and little bit of water; adjust accordingly. Apply to your face and leave on for 5 minutes
Rinse off with apple cider vinegar- I use a spray bottle to spray it over my face a few times; a chemical reaction will happen which is kinda fun and super tingly
Rinse off really well with water
After using this mask, my skin feels so refreshed and uber clean. This mask is super easy to make and apply, so there is no reason why you shouldn’t try it! Small steps are still steps in the right direction to eliminating chemicals from your cosmetics and daily routine.
I use this mask at least once a week to help control my acne and so far it has been working quite nicely. You can control what you use on you skin, what you buy, and who you support! Treat yourself to some chemical and cruelty free beauty regimes!
Let me know if you try it and what you think
