With honey and baking soda, you can create an effective skin care product. Specifically, you'll need 2 tablespoons of baking soda, 1 tablespoon of honey, and a few drops of lemon juice.

Here are the steps to make your skin care product:

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl to get a uniform paste.

  2. Use a bain-marie to make the honey more fluid, for about 8 to 10 minutes.

  3. Add a few drops of lemon to obtain a kind of paste.

  4. Apply it on the face to conceal blackheads and acne.

  5. Use it on the face several times a week for about 20 minutes.

  6. Rinse generously.

This treatment helps get rid of dead cells that contribute to acne production.

How to do it

To turn it into a natural scrub, gently massage the skin before rinsing. Then, wash your face and use a moisturizing cream to close the pores and hydrate the skin.

Baking soda is also significant in digestion, which is why it can be used as a substitute for yeast in dessert preparation. Additionally, this white powder is an interesting product for domestic maintenance, as well as for health and body wellness. It has degreasing, absorbing, and deodorizing properties. For example, you can use it to eliminate bad odors in shoes as follows:

  • Sprinkle baking soda inside the shoes.

  • Let it act overnight.

  • Brush it off, and it's done.

Honey, on the other hand, contains properties soothing for sore throats and coughs. It can be consumed as is or in herbal teas.
