Are some Natural ingredients that are bad for your skin. WARNING – Baking Soda! Baking soda features a lot in DIY home facial scrubs, but “Washing with baking soda can remove the skin’s protective oil barrier, alter its pH, and disrupt the natural bacteria on the surface that help to prevent infection and acne. This can leave you with stripped skin that’s prone to infection and breakouts”

As a result, Graceful Lilly would not touch baking soda with a barge pole as far as scrubs that are put on your face (or anywhere else for that matter) are concerned. Many people will blindly put their trust and faith in a DIY product that appears on the Google screen. Graceful Lilly is here to tell you that these people tell you anything and often don’t have any medical research to tell you that the product is only harmful to your sensitive skin. They forget to tell you about the burning sensation it can leave you with.

Your skin doesn’t react well to ALL Natural Ingredients.

These DIY instructors forget to tell you that this product can irritate your sensitive skin. They forget to tell you that the acidic barrier your healthy skin has, will only be harmed by the baking soda.

So, don’t believe EVERYTHING you read on DIY products. The writers of these sites don’t know you and don’t like you. So they can’t all be trusted.

Graceful Lilly loves you!!!

Of course, your acidic barrier is there for a very good reason. Protection.

Also, be careful when removing your makeup after a long day. “Cleansers that have an oil base or an oil-and-water base work best to remove the waxy products found in makeup. Jojoba oilcoconut oil, and olive oil all work great to gently remove makeup. Be careful with products that contain alcohol because they can be drying and irritating.”

So, if you are looking for a natural exfoliant, please try coffee grains, desiccated coconut or almond meal. Those natural products are more skin-friendly.

Alternatively, if you are looking for a naturally based cleansing and exfoliating product, do a bit of research yourself. Just Google “natural skincare” and we’re sure you’ll find the right answers. Graceful Lilly is sure that you’ll find ingredients such as coconut oil, coffee grains, desiccated coconut and almond meal among the best natural ingredients there are.

Please leave your baking soda in the kitchen. Cook with it instead.
