DIY baking soda face pack recipe to clear blackheads

Oatmeal is one such ingredient that scrubs away dead skin cells, blackheads and whiteheads from your face. Baking soda on the other hand deeply cleanses clogged skin pores and neutralizes the pH balance of your skin. To start with your skincare regime, wash your face first. Alternatively, you can also steam your face to open up all the clogged pores at an instant. Make sure that you keep all the ingredients handy. Lemon is enriched with vitamin C and that helps to reconstruct textured skin, it is also a natural astringent that helps you get rid excess oil from your face.

Ingredients required:

  •  Dry oatmeal
  • Baking soda
  • Juice of a lemon.

Procedure:

  1. Pour 1/4 cup oatmeal into a small mixing bowl.
  2. If the oats are large, you may want to grind them down with a mortar and pestle or food processor first.
  3. Add baking soda followed by lemon juice.
  4. Mix everything together into a smooth, lump-free paste.
  5. The combination of baking soda and lemon juice will cause the mixture to fizz a little bit—that’s normal.
  6. If your scrub is a little too dry, add more lemon juice.
  7. If it ends up too watery, add more oatmeal until you reach a paste consistency.
  8. Apply the mixture to damp skin, and work it in for about a minute.
  9. Use gentle, circular motions and really focus on the areas that are prone to blackheads (like the nose and chin).
  10. Rinse and pat dry.
  11. Follow with the serum, treatment gel, or moisturizer of your choice to complete this skincare regime.
