Our first blog article ever!!!!!! Yeay, we at Jillie’s Natural love firsts, so this is extremely exciting for us. Another YEAY – just for kontrol.
Now that we got that out of our system. Let’s get to business. We are here to educate, inspire, and empower YOU. We care about the general wellness of your life, and we won’t limit ourselves to only skin and haircare.
When the founder of Jillie’s Natural, Jillian Nyakane, was looking for safe and natural products for her skin. Back then in 2006, it was not easy to find budget friendly and natural products for both hair and skin. So, she researched and experimented with natural plant-based ingredients.
She experimented a lot with pantry ingredients such as most herbs, turmeric, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, molasses, honey, lemon, aloe vera, essential oils, etc. These simple kitchen staples can be so powerful for your skin and hair routine. We’ll be sharing some tried and tested tricks on our blog. Today we give the spot light to one of the uses of bicarbonate of soda. We had the pleasure of discovering that bicarbonate of soda is an empowering exfoliator for your face (did we just say that? Bicarbonate empowering? Haha, Yes and Yes). So how does it work?
– 3/4 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
– Pea size of your cleanser (we used Eucerine Dermo Purifyer Cleansing Gel)
Gently rub on the palms of your hands the bicarbonate of soda and cleaner. Again, gently apply on your wet face. Massage your face gently (again!) for about a minute. And then rinse with water. There you go. Your face should feel silky and smooth.
Let us know how your experience is.
Again, welcome and thank you for visiting Jillie’s Natural!
