All-Natural Face Polish, 3 Ways

Winter can be harsh on my skin, so I’ve been trying to make sure that my skin stays moisturized and buffed.
Many people know that baking soda is a miracle product for just about any DIY cleaning, but it’s also a great skin exfoliator.

I used baking soda as a base for 3 different face polishes and added in some natural goodness by way of fruit, vegetables, honey, aloe vera, and olive oil. The results: DIY Beauty Magic.

Cucumber and Olive Oil Face Polish
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. fresh cucumber juice
1/4 tsp. olive oil

Cucumber: Cucumber is hands down my favorite ingredient to use on my face…it just works for me. Applied to the skin, cucumber juice is hydrating, soothing, and reduces puffiness. Full of water and vitamin C, cucumber is an essential DIY beauty ingredient.

Olive Oil: Packed with antioxidants, including vitamin E, olive oil contains anti-aging benefits and promotes hydration.

Carrot and Aloe Vera Face Polish
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. fresh carrot juice
1/4 tsp. aloe vera

Carrot Juice: Carrots are packed with antioxidants and vitamins A and C. Applied to the face, carrot juice helps moisturize skin and provides anti-aging benefits.

Aloe Vera: Aloe vera is an amazing plant. It’s traditionally used for soothing sunburns, but can also be used to manage acne, moisturize skin, and delay the effects of aging.

Banana and Honey Face Polish
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. mashed banana
1/4 tsp. honey

Banana:
The vitamins contained in bananas contain anti-aging, dark spot healing, and moisturizing properties.

Honey: Honey is a natural humectant, loaded with antioxidants and enzymes that help cleanse, brighten, and nourish skin.

Mix ingredients together in a small bowl. Using your fingers, gently apply the mixture to your face in a circular motion, avoiding the eye area. Rinse with warm water.
