There are many effective recipes for acne and wrinkles (with honey, shaving foam, etc.) that every woman can use without serious consequences for the family budget.
The benefits of baking soda for the face
Baking soda does not require additional costs, since every housewife has it. It is actively used for baking or for solving household problems.
Soda has a wide range of useful properties, therefore it is a popular ingredient in homemade masks for cleansing and treating facial skin.
Indications for the use of soda for the face and masks with its participation are:
- Acne (acne);
- Comedones (black dots);
- Clogged pores.
Washing with soda for the face is also possible. To do this, add 1 tsp. soda in 200 ml of warm water and wipe the skin with a cotton pad. You need to repeat the procedure no more than 2 times a week.
Masks with soda: recipes
Masks with soda effectively get rid of blackheads, acne, comedones, inflammation, remove dead skin particles, and have a rejuvenating effect.
To achieve the best effect, as well as to prevent possible negative consequences, it is recommended to use additional emollient ingredients in the composition of homemade soda masks.
Most often, a mask with soda is added:
- sour cream;
- Shaving foam.
Additional components can soften the effect of an exfoliating face mask and replenish the epidermis with nutrition and hydration.

- Honey – 1 tablespoon;
- Cream (you can use milk or sour cream) – 1 tablespoon;
- Clay (better to use black) – 1 tsp;
- Baking soda – 1/2 tsp
