SODA FACE SCRUB
It’s very exciting to see people come into my shop with clear faces after a week of using my gentle face scrub for combination skin. It isn’t just helping my face but making a significant difference for people suffering from acne. Yay!
This face scrub makes my skin feel clean and exfoliated without dryness or harshness. There’s a peppermint zing that makes my face happy. And I like the smooth softness it gives my face. And dead skin, bumps and dry patches seem gone and I feel I’ve stopped those blackheads without putting my face through extremes. While I don’t worry too much about acne at my age, I still get a few pimples but the Neem and Tea Tree, with Coconut Oil is a great gentle, skin safe, disinfectant.
My Skin Regimen
In this picture I am 57 (February 2020). I often use the Soda Scrub in the morning with my bath and Flower Petal Face Serum and/or Red Tea and Black Currant Face Lotion in the morning. At night I use my Oil Cleansing Treatment and my Babassu Face Serum.
I really enjoy exfoliating cleansers but often they are too rough for my face. The baking soda is much gentler for me than scrubs containing apricot shells, walnut shells, seeds or salts.
Description of my Soda Face Scrub
I include some of my handmade Dead Sea Salt soap bar for extra cleansing but in this, it isn’t at all drying. Gone is that tight feeling other cleansers give me, probably because of the nourishing oils. The baking soda helps keep the product from getting contaminated. So I think this is a very cost effective cleanser.
One bonus is, I don’t get bits of seeds or grains left in my hair or ears.
There’s no waxy, filmy or sticky residue left on your face to block pores like I’ve found with some exfoliating scrubs.
The smell is natural, not fruity or fake, just smells like the necessary ingredients to wash my face nicely.
Ph May Be a Factor in Skin Care
Ph may have a strong influence on acne and other skin conditions. This cleanser, like natural soap, is highly alkaline. The alkalinity may create an environment that bacteria does not like. However, some people might find high alkalinity irritating and require a more acidic cleanser or benefit from using an Oil Cleansing method. I recommend being aware of the Ph of the cleansers you try to see whether high alkalinity suits your complexion.
