Here's a tip on how to deep cleanse using baking soda and lemon. You know how it is when our skin feel so clogged up with dirt and makeup. No matter how much moisturizer or makeup you put, skin tends to look dry, beat and unhealthy. Well, this concoction is a quick pick me up and you can repeat this once a week if you must.
There is no exact measurement or ratio, start with 1 tablespoon baking soda and eyeball the lemon juice up to its pasty consistency. Apply the mixture all over your face, paying close attention to blackhead prone areas, leave it on for a good 10-20 minutes. Once the paste has dried up, wet your hands with warm water to activate the mask then start massaging the skin in circular motion, concentrate on areas where there are embedded dirt ie; forehead, chin, cheeks, nose and around the nose. Then turn on the cold water for final rinse. Make sure to rinse the residue completely.
After rinsing, pat dry. Use a toner then make sure to apply generous oil free moisturizer and don't forget to put sunblock when heading out because lemon tend to make the skin sensitive to sunlight. Or better yet, avoid sunlight for a good 24-48 hours after doing this regimen.
Other than that, this is a great and natural way to cleanse the skin. Your skin will look luminous and feeling soft and smooth immediately.
