One of the most popular ingredients found in every household is baking soda.
Baking soda can be used in many different ways, be it for cooking, cleaning, or preserving your health and beauty, and it seems like every day a new use for it turns up.
In this article we offer you an incredible new way of using baking soda for preserving your beauty, by making a facial masque with it.
The masque is based on baking soda, but also lemon and Tea tree oil – it is particularly good for removing acne, under eye shadows and black heads.
How to Make the Baking Soda and Lemon Facial Masque
What do you need (ingredients):
- Lemon juice ( ½ lemon of);
- Baking soda ( 2 tbsp of);
- Tea tree oil (2 drops of).
The baking soda is there to exfoliate your facial skin and eliminate all of your dead skin cells and accumulated toxins.
The tea tree oil is used because it is very effective in eliminating acne, while the lemon juice regenerates the skin and takes care of sun spots and acne scarring.
How to prepare it (preparation):
Preparation is very simple, just put all of your ingredients in a blender and blend them until you end up with a thick mixture. When you’re done apply the masque on your face, leave it on for 3 minutes (only on the first use), and then wash it off. The next week you can repeat the same process but leave your masque on for 10 minutes.
How to use it:
You can use it as much as you need it, but make sure you only keep it for 3 minutes during the first use. Also, if your skin is particularly sensitive to the mask, you can water it down.
