DIY Natural Beauty Wednesday!!!!


Hello Everyone and Welcome to another DIY Natural Beauty Wednesday!!!!!

So happy to bring y'all this little tip today. I wear makeup almost everyday. I prefer a full coverage foundation which can be a little thick and heavy at times. I prime my face as well as blush it and contour it and powder it. What I'm getting at is I use a lot of products. Not just a multitude of different makeup products but many assorted cleansers, wipes, oils, masks and moisturizers. I am very oily so moisturizers can weigh my face down and clog my pores. I like to try and test new beauty products all the time and that can cause my face not to always be at its best. When I start to feel my face getting dull I use a little baking soda. Baking soda is an excellent gentle exfoliant that removes unwanted dead skin cells that make your face dull. I came across an article last year discussing what is in exfoliators and how they can actually harm your face depending on what they use to exfoliate. The product they where talking about was in my shower and I threw it away right then and there. It didn't bother me getting rid of it because it was a bit to abrasive for my face. Even though the product has lots of hype and many people use it and swear by it I was not a big fan. I went on a search to find something better for my face. I kept seeing articles and people going on about using baking soda as a cleanser. I always have a box because I use it to clean other things in my home. I tried it and was amazed at how squeaky clean my face felt. It was a little brighter and tighter and it glowed. I have been using it for about six mouths now and love it. I use it about once or twice a week. It is very inexpensive which is good if your buying makeup all the time like I am.

How to use:
2 tablespoons of baking soda
2 teaspoons water
Mix until it becomes a loose paste. Wash with it or leave on your face as a mask for a few minutes. Rinse and smile at how beautiful you look. I sometimes just add the baking soda to my face cleanser in the palm of my hand and wash with it like that which is also great. However you decide to use the baking soda I sure hope y'all enjoy.

Thank you and Until Next Time!
