Baking Soda Mask for Pimple Treatment
NOTE – DO NOT use this facial mask if: You are allergic/sensitive to baking soda, or if you have any abrasions or weepy pimples. If you are unsure whether to use this mask, or have an allergic reaction to it, seek medical advice from a health care professional.
If you are not sure if you are allergic to baking soda, apply mask to a small patch of skin first, before putting it all over your face. If you experience any negative effects, wash off immediately and discontinue using it.

2: Add 2 table spoons of water
3: Mix to a smooth paste
4: Apply to face
5: Leave on for 15 minutes

When you have completed the steps above, you can apply your normal moisturizer as usual.
How This Baking Soda Mask Will Get Rid Of Pimples
Baking Soda (also known as Bicarbonate of soda) is amphoteric (which means it can operate as an acid or a base), therefore it can help to neutralize any pH imbalances in the skin. Pimple breakouts are often caused by a pH skin imbalance.
Baking soda also helps to dry the skin, so is good for removing excess oils that can cause acne/blackhead breakouts. It also contains mild anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, which can help to reduce the size of the pimples.
When mixed with water, the baking soda paste has a slight gritty texture, that acts as a mild exfoliant. This exfoliant texture cleans the skin and removes excess oils and dead skin cells.
