Homemade Face Mask Made Of Baking Soda, Lemon Juice And Honey

Baking soda is an amazing exfoliator, and has powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Lemon is one of the best natural antiseptic agents. It kills bacteria, disinfects the skin, has bleaching effects and it supplies the skin with vitamin C, which is essential for elasticity.

Honey has hydrating and soothing effects, cleans the skin and helps disintegrate the excess sebum.

For the preparation of this face mask, you’ll need the following:

  • 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice (pulp removed)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon of raw honey

Preparation and application:

Mix the ingredients, so that you get a consistent mixture. Wash your face with lukewarm water, and clean the makeup residue. Pat it dry with a cotton towel.

Apply the resulting face mask on your skin, gently spreading it. Avoid the eye area, as the lemon juice is not very pleasant for the eyes. Do not scrub the mask. Leave it to act for about 15 minutes, or until dry. Then, wash your face with lukewarm water. Allow it to dry naturally. In the end, apply moisturizing cream.

It’s best to apply the mask in the evening, to maximize the benefits of the ingredients while you sleep and to allow your skin to regenerate. This face mask won’t have much effect if you apply it in the morning. Namely, if you do the treatment in the morning, and then you put makeup and go outside, your skin will accumulate a lot of dirt.

This face mask is very effecting in removing the excess sebum, preventing acne breakouts, unclogging pores, and cleaning dirt and pollution particles.

For best results, repeat the treatment twice a week. Not more, as it can cause irritation. In about a month of use, you’ll notice significant improvement of your skin’s condition.
