5 Baking Soda Masks to Zap Out Blackheads

After all the expensive and time-consuming blackheads treatments, here’s one that actually works! And it isn’t expensive at all!


Just as it works wonders in your recipes, baking soda works wonders for blackheads. In fact, women around the world rely upon baking soda for blackheads as a treatment to help arrest and even prevent future occurrences.

Baking soda has antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which make it a perfect remedy for most skin problems. As an exfoliator, it unclogs pores leaving skin soft and smooth. It neutralizes skin pH level which makes it produce less oil; this completely prevents blackheads. And since it has no harsh chemicals, you are spared of any side effects.

By adding some easily available ingredients to it, you can increase baking soda’s efficacy.

These 5 baking soda masks are your answer to great looking skin that’s smooth and blackheads free.

Things to keep in mind

Baking soda hates blackheads as much as you do. But always try a patch test first. If you feel any irritation, discontinue immediately.

Avoid applying these treatments on burst pimples or open wounds. Consult your dermatologist if you have any allergies.

Use these treatments only for a short period as excessive application of baking soda or salt can irritate or dry the skin. Supplement these masks with Olay skincare products for better results.
