Isn’t it amazing to know that your kitchen probably has everything you need to help you combat skin problems or just help you improve the condition of your skin? Why, baking soda alone can be used in over a hundred ways from cleaning your floors to whitening your teeth. Best part is, baking soda for acne scars is also quite effective.
If you are like most people, you probably never even though about baking soda for acne scars and acne treatments but it is indeed very effective and something you should try. After all, it can do you no harm and if it doesn’t work, at least you can use it to exfoliate your feet.
How to use baking soda for the face
To get you started in using baking soda for acne scars and acne prevention, you will need a new box as you want it as fresh as possible. Next, take just enough baking soda and mix it with water to form a sort of paste which you then rub all over your face. Remember not to rub too hard; gentle circular motions ought to do it. This cleanser will help:
- Unclog pores
- Buff away dead skin cells (this gets rid discolored skin caused by acne scars)
- Kill bacteria that cause acne.
Once you are done cleansing with baking soda, it is time to tone. Now, you may use your all-natural witch hazel extract or you can use baking soda. Simply mix about a tablespoon of baking soda with perhaps 4 oz. of water and put in a spray bottle. You may spray this all over the face but do not wipe it off just yet; it needs to dry on your face for the best results. This may not look very pretty so baking soda toner should be used only at night. What is good about this baking soda toner is it is good for alleviating the redness and itchiness caused by skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
Stock up on baking soda
Baking soda for acne, scars, psoriasis, and eczema is a very effective (and cheap!) way to deal with such conditions. But do not stop at just using baking soda for these problems because there are so many more ways you can use regular baking soda in your skin care regimen. In fact, adding it to your skin care routine is a very good idea and is likely to bring wonderful results.
As always, consulting a dermatologist is recommended before starting any new skin care products.
