A Citrus and Baking Soda Fizzy Facial Brightener

Baking Soda

Citrus fruits


Citrus fruits are known to contain vitamin C, a potent antioxidant. Common examples of such fruits are oranges, grapefruits, limes, lemons and tangerines.

Also, citrus fruits are composed of alpha hydroxy acids that help exfoliate and brighten the skin as well as keep the pores of the skin open.



Baking soda is mildly acidic in nature which enables it to prevent blackheads while gently sloughing away dead skin cells to reveal younger looking skin.
