The fountain of youth is a timeless quest!
At any age girls are looking to be beautiful. I have a 3-year-old daughter who spends her days dressing up, requesting new nail polish colors and asking me over and over “how do I look mom?”
I know personally I watch those elegant old-fashioned movies with woman who look flawless and wonder how I can look so beautiful and what is their secret.
You must wonder sometimes at the complexity of the beauty industry today and the lack of female flawlessness. Acne, swelling, scars, blemishes, and imperfections are a part of life. I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel like the beauty isles today are helping me look my best.
That’s why I decided to go back to the vintage days of simplicity! Our good old friend baking soda! This is currently the only face wash I use as it has worked much better than any product I have found out there!
Baking soda is a great exfoliating agent. It gently scrubs your face, removing dead cells and skin as well as bacteria and excess oils. It is also a PH balancer which is crucial to maintain clear even skin.
DIY Baking Soda Face Mask:
Pour 1/3 cup baking soda into a bowl
Mix with the juice from half a lemon
2 tablespoons tea tree oil.
Apply generously to your face, wait for 10 minutes, then rinse.
Pat your skin dry and then moisturize.
This can be done every day with a small amount of baking soda, or once or twice a week if you use a higher ratio. Apply organic coconut or olive oil or a light moisturizer.
I use an amazing little trick of applying an apple cider vinegar toner (1 part raw apple cider vinegar, 1 part water) after the wash that tightens and enhances the skin and gives a kind of airbrushed glow to it. So simple! Just apply it gently (I apply with a cotton ball) like any other facial toner!
I would love to hear how this natural and timeless face mask transformed your beautiful face!
