Can you really remove blackheads using Baking soda? Well, this is something I used to ask myself everytime I see this as a natural hack to get rid of blackheads. However, after giving it a try, I’d say, ” yes, to an extent baking soda does help in removing certain amount of blackheads.
However, I’d not suggest using baking soda on a regular basis. You can use baking soda as facial scrub only as an alternative on days when you are running out of your facial scrub.
