Is winter drying your skin out already?
It seems to be doing a number on mine already, and I tend to notice it most on my face.
You may know what I’m talking about–those dry, flaky areas that seem to crop up when the temperature drops outside.
I was absolutely thrilled to find this post on A Blossoming Life recently.
It uses coconut oil and baking soda, two ingredients I always have on hand anymore, so I tried it out.
LOVED it. It definitely made my skin feel much softer and smoother.
All you do is take about 1 tsp of baking soda and mix it with 1/2 to 1 TB of coconut oil. Wet your face with warm water, then scrub the mixture in, rubbing in little circles all over your face. Wash with warm water and you are done.
I wouldn’t do this every day, perhaps once or twice a week.
Have a beautiful New Year!
