Baking Soda and Honey mask

It’s true that many health professionals don’t recommend the use of baking soda in dealing with acne. However, it’s also true that baking soda can help in reducing acne breakouts and manage pain and inflammation on the skin due to its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.
