How To Make Lemon And Baking Soda Mask
How To Make Lemon And Baking Soda Mask If you are used to staying out in the sun and the dirt every day, a face mask is just the thing you need to clean your face. This skin care product helps in minimizing blackheads, whiteheads, oily skin, pimples and even pigmentation. Face masks are manufactured by almost all beauty and skincare brands. But they inevitably contain chemicals that can harm your skin and create more problems.
How To Prepare:
The lemon baking soda mask is as simple as it sounds. All you need is lemon juice and baking soda.
1: To make the face mask, mix one teaspoon of lemon juice with two tablespoons of baking soda. Baking soda reacts with the lemon juice and fizzes a lot. But keep mixing until you get a runny, pale yellow paste.
2: Use this paste to rub all over your face and neck (avoid your eye). Scrub your nose and the T-zone or wherever you find oil on your face. It is normal to feel a bit of a tingle because the baking soda reaction keeps taking place. However, if you feel a burning sensation on your face, immediately wash the mixture off and don’t try it again.
3: Also, keep this mixture on your face for no more than 15 minutes to avoid redness. Using a warm, wet washcloth, wipe the mask off your face. Using cold water, close your pores and pat your skin dry. Now moisturize your face with your favorite product.
Using Lemon Soda Mask With Honey:
To make the face mask with honey, add one teaspoon of raw, organic honey with the same amount of baking soda and lemon juice. Honey is a really good natural anti-bacterial substance that helps in killing the bad bacteria residing in the pores of your skin. It also soothes and moisturizes your skin.
1: Baking soda has a slightly grainy texture, which, when rubbed on your face, helps in exfoliating, and the tiny granules scrub off the outer layer of old skin cells.
2: It prevents the build-up of dirt and oil in pores and consequently reduces the chances of breakouts. It also makes your skin tone even and glowing.
3: Lemon juice, rich in citric acid and vitamin C, removes oil from your skin and cleanses your face. It also kills bacteria and reduces the chances of infection.
