Have you ever heard of washing your face with sparkling water? It really is a thing. It’s a relatively simple and inexpensive way to deep clean your face.
Here’s how it works. Starting with a freshly cleaned face, mix room temperature regular water with non-flavoured sparkling mineral water at a 1:1 ratio into a large bowl or basin. Next is the "fun part". Take a very deep breath and submerge your face into the water for 10-20 seconds, being very careful not to get any water up your nose. WARNING: This will sting a bit. Pat face dry. Follow up with a good moisturizer.
So why does this work. Fist of all human skin has a pH of 5.5 which is the same as the carbonated water. Regular tap water has a pH of 7. It is said that “the carbonation helps to break up dirt and help unclog pores, and also enhances the flow of blood and oxygen to the skin”.
Some of our guinea pigs tried it and reported that their skin felt smoother and tighter afterwards.
Caution: if you feel discomfort or if irritation erupts, discontinue.
