Baking Soda Masks

 

Baking Soda Masks have been used by men and women in their beauty regime for years.  Even makeup contains some baking soda or sodium bicarbonate.   Purchase your Baking soda in your favorite grocery store. It is inexpensive to use.  Do Not substitute baking powder for Baking Soda.  Baking Powder will burn and irritate your skin.

Baking Soda Masks

You can use Baking Soda as a spot treatment, a cleanser and a facial mask.  As a spot treatment, apply the paste just to the pimple or blackhead, let set for 10 minutes then rinse.   The Baking Soda dries out the blemish.  Rinse your face several times.   You do not want to leave any trace of the Baking Soda on your skin, as it is very drying.

A word of caution, if at any time you experience burning or stinging, wash the Baking Soda Mask off your face.  When this happens, it means that your skin is very sensitive and easily irritated.  Always follow your Baking Soda Mask, spot treatment or cleanser with an oil free moisturizer.
