Anti-Bacterial Body Wash
This is an all natural "body wash" that is healthy and really works to kill bacteria and exfoliate. I like it best for use on your face AND this is really, REALLY good for your armpits...a place that often gets over looked when it comes to exfoliating. You can use this on your whole body if you like but I tend to use it on my face and pits. This is something I would recommend to do three days a week. This "recipe" really helps to brighten your face and remove dead skin cells and kill bacteria. It is great for your pits because your arm pits hold odors. This is due to dead skin and the bacteria that dwell there and EAT the dead skin and cells. This formula will exfoliate the dead skin AND kill the bacteria. I guarantee if you do this at least three times a week you will notice your pits are fresher, smell less and will develop ingrown hairs less often due to shaving. Try to do this on a day you do NOT shave as it will sting if you do.
You will need:
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) that is RAW. I recommend a brand on another article so do a search and read about it, it is great stuff! (brightens skin, kills bacteria and fungus)
Lemon Juice Concentrate (shrinks pores, softens skin, fights odors)
Mineral Salt (kills bacteria)
Table Sugar (exfoliates skin)
Mix 1/4 cup ACV with 1/8 cup lemon concentrate. Add 1 tablespoon table sugar and 2 teaspoons mineral salt. Mix all four ingredients well and ad 2 tablespoons water. This should be enough for your face and pits. Do this in the shower! Just rub WELL on pits and face away from the flowing shower (keep your eyes AND mouth closed). Rinse away when done with water. Give it a try!
