All Natural Skin Care

A little while back I tried to go the whole "all natural" route when it came to my beauty routine.  No shampoo, home made deodorant, etc., and while I didn't love the routine and stick with it, the one thing I tired that I still use is my face wash. 

My shower now contains a bottle of Tea Tree Oil and a container of Baking Soda.  I put about a 1/4 tsp. of soda in my hand and add a couple drops of Tea Tree Oil, and then I scrub my face with the mixture.  The Tea Tree Oil is a natural disinfectant and the Baking Soda acts as a scrubber.  Once I get out of the shower, I moisturize with Coconut Oil.  That's it.

Seriously, it's the best skin care ever!  In the 3 years I have been using this, I have had maybe 4 blemishes.  Also, the Coconut Oil is a natural SPF, so I don't need to put on sunscreen either.    

AND it's super cheap.  I purchased a 7lb tub of coconut oil from Costco (best store ever by the way) for about $20.  The Tea Tree Oil I found at Sprouts Market for about $10, and the Baking Soda is like $2 a box.  So for about 6 months worth of face wash and face moisturizer, I spend about $10.  (The stuff lasts forever.)   

Seriously, try it, you will never use anything else on your face.
