      Hi Sheeba, using baking soda daily on face can be harsh, so you should use it 2-3 times in a week. If you are using it on apart from your face then you can use it daily. Thanks

      Hi Dolly, you should use it 2-3 times in a week for skin whitening. For face wash also you should use it 2-3 times in a week. Don’t use it daily on your face as this can be harsh on your skin.
      Thanks

      Hi Venu,
      I am not sure how baking soda can help in treating vitiligo. My knowledge is very limited on this. I would recommend you to see a dermatologist who would be the best person to advise you on this.
      Thanks

      Hi Shatakshi,
      Yes, baking soda does work in removing facial hairs. But I would not recommend you using it, as you are just 16 years oil. This can be harsh on your delicate skin.
      No, you won’t get thicker and coarser hairs afterward.

      Hi Palesa, a mint paste is a puree and you can make it at home. Put some fresh and washed mint leaves into a food processor and then add little water and make a smooth paste of leaves.
