Like many other natural treatment products, baking soda can be used in several different ways to treat the skin. We have included a list of our favorite uses below.
Your face wash doesn’t have to be an elaborate concoction. Simply mix 2 teaspoons of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of hot water to form a paste. Rinse your face with water and rub the mixture in circular motions on your face to gently cleanse the skin.
The fine grainy texture of baking soda makes it a perfect exfoliant. Use the baking soda alone or add a teaspoon to your favorite cleansing cream and gently rub your face for smooth, flawless skin.
Baking soda also helps flush toxins from the skin. Create a baking soda paste using 2 teaspoons of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of warm water. Smooth the mixture over your face and allow to dry completely.
Rinse and dry. You can even use this combination as a detoxification bath by mounting the baking soda to 120 or 200 g and adding 400 g of Epsom salt.
Mix enough lemon juice with 2 teaspoons of baking soda and a spray of hot water to create a thin paste. Smooth the mixture over your face and let it dry completely.
Rinse and pat dry to reveal brighter skin with fewer dark spots.

Again mix the water and baking soda to make a paste. Gently massage the mixture onto your skin, focusing on your problem area. Let the dough soak for at least a minute and rinse to remove those pesky blackheads and any dirt on or in the skin.
Whether your skin is acne-prone or relatively free, you will see a difference when you start using baking soda.
