Use This Easy Baking Soda Scrub To Clear Pesky Zits And Other Skin Issues


Written by: Lindsay Sibson

I sincerely admire people that have the willpower to NOT pop a whitehead zit.

Seriously though.

The first slight sign of a pimple and I am on it like Inspector Gadget – all while problem solving the best way to get rid of it STAT.

One way to keep your face clean and clear of zits and other skin issues is to regularly give it a healthy and gentle scrub.

This simple baking soda scrub is gentle and easy to use everyday… and is a champ at banishing skin problems (especially those pesky pimples).

Why Use a Scrub?

  • Buffs away dead skin cells and dry skin, leaving your skin smooth and fresh
  • Breaks up pigmented cells and can reduce the appearance of dark spots
  • Helps get rid of clogged pores by drawing out the congestion that causes blackheads/whiteheads
  • Breaks down and drains toxins from your skin
  • Increases circulation
  • Prevents ingrown hairs

How This Scrub Works

Baking Soda
  • Antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties
  • Helps kill the microbes that cause acne
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Draws out excess oil from your skin and unclogs pores
  • Maintains your skin’s pH, giving it a healthy glow
  • Acts as an excellent exfoliator
  • Helps remove dark spots and regenerate new skin cells
Coconut Oil
  • Antibacterial due to the lauric acid
  • Calms and soothes your skin
  • Moisturizes deeply by easily seeping into your skin pores
  • Preserves the smoothness of your skin
  • Helps keep your skin wrinkle-free
Tea Tree Oil
  • Antibacterial and antiviral properties
  • Kills bacteria and viruses
  • Protects pores from getting infected
  • Helps with fungal growth and reduces inflammation

How To Making Simple Baking Soda Scrub

What You Need:



1. In a small glass jar with a lid, stir and mix together all of the ingredients. Store in a dry place for up to a month (avoid getting water in the scrub container as it will weaken the solution).

2. To use: Wash your face and body as usual and rinse well using hot water to open your pores.

    • Scoop out an ample amount of the scrub and massage into your face/body for 5 minutes using a circular motion.
    • Rinse off the mixture and pat dry.


Use this scrub as needed to give your skin the freshest feeling.

If you want to give your skin some added silkiness, rub on a few drop of coconut oil for a glowing appearance!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
