Hope everyone is having a fabulous day! And what a better way to start your morning than giving yourself a little mini-home facial? Because that's obviously what we all do on Saturdays? AMIRIGHT? Okay no.
Anyway, so I saw this on Pinterest a couple of nights ago and thought I'd give it a go. This orange juice/baking soda combination is supposed to be a blackhead killer like nobody's business. It's also supposed to tighten pores (the citrus maybe does this?), which is awesome for me because I'm am zit prone with large pores (EW!).
First thing, mix about a tablespoon of pure orange juice and however much baking soda you need to make it a thicker consistency. I don't know how much baking soda I used, but I added enough to make the mask consistency thicker and spreadable.
Layer it on your face for about 20 minutes. Some people said it itched and burned, but it didn't for me? I guess it just depends on how sensitive your skin is. I did feel a slight tingle feeling, but it wasn't really that noticeable.
When I removed the mask my face was actually pretty vibrant and smooth. It felt like I really did just get a facial. I think obviously for this face treatment to work, you'd probably want to do it at the most twice a week, but not more. That baking soda can dry your face out and that's no good. I definitely think this would be a great way to blast away zits quickly. Also, be sure to lather in a good moisturizer when you're done. My face felt very tight after this home treatment.
And there you have it! Have really nice skin! Go!
