  • All you need is lemon juice and baking soda.
  • To prepare this face mask, add a  teaspoon of fresh lemon juice into 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Baking soda reacts with lemon juice and fizzes a lot. Make sure you keeping mixing it until you get a runny and pale yellow paste.
  • Apply this paste all over your face as well your neck, but don’t apply it around your eyes though. Scrub your nose and the T-zone. You may feel a bit tingy at first because of the baking soda reaction that keeps taking place. However, if there is a burning sensation, you should immediately rinse it off with water.

In addition, make sure you don’t keep it for more than 15 minutes as it may turn your face red. Use a warm, wet washcloth to wipe off the mask from your face and neck. You can also give a rinse with cold water post that and pat your skin dry. Later, apply some moisturiser on your face.
