Acne is one of the most common cosmetic concerns that most women have. Fortunately the market offers may option to treat all these issues, but most of these treatments are expensive and usually they don’t deliver the result wanted.
Baking soda is a really cheap and natural response to all of these high-end treatments. Applied on the surface of the skin, baking soda helps in eliminating the top layer with dead cells and oily secretions, making harder for acne to form.
Here are the ways in which you can use baking soda:
– create a paste of baking soda with water until it resembles toothpaste. You must apply the mix on your face and leave it there for 15 minutes until you rinse it off, and the way of applying is with gentle circular rubs all over your face. This mix will cure acne and also help if your skin is itching or has red spots. You can use this mask once a week so you can see results.
– if you have scars on your face made by acne, leave a paste formed by baking soda and water on your face overnight and wash it in the morning. It will isolate the area and it will gently treat the affected part.
– baking soda is also great when you want to exfoliate your skin. Just mix a small teaspoon of baking soda with the facial cleanser you use everyday. After that just apply the cleanser as you do everyday and massage it on your skin for 5 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water after.
