For a super-easy, super-cheap face mask, mix 2 parts baking soda with 1 part water. Help open your pores with a hot, wet washcloth before applying the paste all over your face, just as you would a regular face mask. Leave it on about 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water, rubbing in circular motions.

This ridiculously easy baking soda mask costs less than a penny! Plus, it exfoliates and clarifies as well as my favorite purifying mask, Origins’ natural charcoal mask: $21 for 3 1/2 ounces.
