When it comes to skin care and beauty, the advice of the specialists is this: return to nature. The cosmetic products that we buy from the shops or pharmacies contain toxic substances that, in time, can affect the skin. Some women don’t even know that a few ingredients so cheap and simple such as baking soda or lemon juice can do wonders for their skin.
Perfect Skin – Recipe
– ½ lemon
– 1 teaspoon of baking soda
Wash your face with warm water. Take a little bit of baking soda on your fingers and rub the wet skin. Make sure you massage the entire skin surface, especially the problematic areas, where the skin is sensitive, red or irritated, prone to pimples or acne. Leave the baking soda on the face for 5 – 10 minutes, until you feel a slight discomfort. After that, cleanse the skin with lukewarm water and wipe it with a towel.
Squeeze the lemon juice in a small cup and soak a cotton ball in it. Bad the face with the lemon juice, covering the entire surface of the skin. In the beginning, you will feel mild tingling or burn, but these are normal due to the acidity of the lemon juice.
After you have finished the lemon juice, let it penetrate the skin for a few minutes. When the lemon juice has been absorbed and the tingling sensation has disappeared, cleanse the face with a cotton ball that you have previously soaked in olive oil or your favorite face cream.
Another alternative is to mix the baking soda with the lemon juice in equal quantities and apply this mask on your face. Let it cure for 20 minutes, then cleanse with water.
It’s recommended to apply this treatment in the evening, to allow the skin to “sleep”, the pores to close and skin to regenerate. If you do this in the morning, when you will get out and your skin will be exposed to toxins and dust, the treatment won’t be that efficient. Don’t apply this mask more than once a week because it’s rather harsh than mild, but extremely efficient.
Shortly, you will see that the skin will be clear of blackheads, pimples, acne and other imperfections. The baking soda will extract the dirt and toxins from the skin and the lemon juice will tighten the pores and help the skin regain its natural glow and brightness.
