Everyone got face skin issues so often because of several reasons. Foundation might be a reason, so you have to use the best foundation for your skin.
How to bake your face properly
Baking soda in some ways might not give the best outcome to every user because it may or may not work with every person’s face. For the avoidance of all the inconveniences, disappointments or any bad reaction on your face, test it out first on any other part of your skin like the arm first to test whether you will have a positive or negative result before using it on your face.
For more efficient results, I would use my index figure and thumb to apply a pinch of baking soda on my face to form a uniform mask and then rub it smoothly like using normal face wash. My skin felt smoother and less dry after rinsing off the mask of baking soda from my face. My face appeared so beautiful with the smooth texture on it. This was results observed after day one of the facial experiment.
On the second day, my face still had a soft texture and was still a little red in color. My skin became more even on the third day and this was so encouraging. I, therefore, decided to use CC cream and face powder and a few drops of raspberry seed oil as a preferred moisturizer. It was day four and I was proud of my skin for it was glowing beautifully and it appeared so healthy because it had all the evident qualities that healthy people refer to when they talk about perfect and healthy skin and this was so exciting.
It was the fifth day and I decided to add some essential oil to the baking soda to give it a scent of baking soda but I did not add any other forms of chemicals because I was not ready to ruin the perfect change my face was going through. On the sixth day, I didn’t wash my face very well and I experienced rough crystals on my face throughout the day, this was quite irritating and boring and this gave me a very tough and bad day but I had to take heart and complete my full week experiment. It was the last day and I was super excited for the change on my face was visible and it was nothing else but perfect.
My skin texture was so smooth and there was no pimple visible on my beautiful skin. I was very satisfied and pleased with the outcome and I thanked God for everything. From the awesome experience from day one to day five, I would, therefore, encourage you to use baking soda which is made of sodium bicarbonate with no doubts at all for whatsoever reasons for it is harmless because it can also be used for consumption purposes. But make sure you test it first with your arm to experiment whether your skin is sensitive and reactive because it does not work on everyone, so don’t spoil your face.
It is evident that baking soda is one ingredient that may not miss in your kitchen cabinet but so many people have never thought of including it in their beauty regimes.

How to bake your face perfectly depends on the materials you use to bake it. For efficient results, one needs a concealer and any translucent loose powder like baking soda ash which should create a shade or two shades much lighter than your normal skin tone. Pressed powder is not used in baking because it does not work. How to bake your face is very easy because you start with your normal foundation routine.
Gently smear the concealer uniformly under your eyes gently to blend it out. An amount of translucent powder is applied gently under the eye area, on your chin, cheekbones and also forehead immediately after blending and allow it to relax in that position for ten to five minutes. The relaxed powder on your face melts the concealer into your face to fill the creases and lines because it works hand in hand with your skins natural heat. This should, therefore, give the foundation and concealer time to set for that extra radiant effect.
A wedge sponge which is dumped in a setting spray may also be used (but it is optional). After five to ten minutes, sweep away the masked powder on your face with a blush brush using a very short, smooth and flicking motion. You can, therefore, say that you have baked your face successfully. You will experience a smooth texture on your face and you will, therefore, glow beautifully with a uniform even tone on your face.
