Post Baking Soda or Lemon Juice

Baking soda makes a great for cleaning skin, and opening pores. Lemon juice will dry pimples up and be gone the next day. Go ahead and try and let me know.

Baking Soda is not a good idea. Attaching a household name to a Sodium Bicarbonate isnt a good idea because it leads people to think its a safe thing. Baking Soda will ruin someones pH balance. You add Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) to things that have too much acid to make them basic. Most people's pH is too basic meaning they are from 7-14 on the 1-14 scale, 1 being acidic, 14 being basic. Optimally we all want to be in the 7-8 range, but putting Baking Soda on your face will take you to a 9-14 range allowing your skin to become very basic. Not a good idea. Hope you all can understand this perhaps too scientific information.

Be careful with lemon juice if you have dark skin. Lemon juice can bleach your skin.
