LEMON AND BAKING SODA SCRUB

HONEY AND BAKING SODA SCRUB
In a bowl, mix together equal quantities of honey and baking soda. Baking soda is an exfoliant that lifts the top dead skin layer which is tanned and honey is a natural bleaching agent. Apply this paste on the skin and let it sit for 5 minutes. Gently scrub it with massaging movements and rinse it away. Do this every day until you are satisfied with the results!
BAKING SODA AND ORANGE JUICE MASK
In a bowl mix together baking soda and orange juice such that you have a spreadable consistency. Once you are done making the mask, use it all over your body as a body mask before bath and rinse it away after 5-7 minutes. The longer you keep the better. Do this every day until you are satisfied with the results!
CAUTION: Patch test before use!
