I was really tired after work today, so I decided to stay in….and of course I ended up on pinterest. As I was browsing around, I saw a pin about a Baking Soda Face Mask. After performing a little research, I learned that baking soda is a natural way to cleanse and exfoliate your face. Baking soda is made from naturally occurring sodium bicarbonate, which is a mild abrasive that is actually used in a lot of commercial skin care products, since it helps gently remove dead skin cells and impurities. The ingredients include:
- 2 Tbs Baking Soda
- 1.5 tsp Water
I mixed the water and baking soda together, then applied a thin layer all over my face.
It felt kind of tingly at first, then it started to kind of burn about three minutes in….and that’s when i rinsed it off! My skin definitely feels clean and refreshed. This is such a simple, easy way to get that deep, clean feeling 😀
