With regard to home treatment ways to eliminate acne, sodium bicarbonate or baking soda, as we usually call it, is by far my favorite of all time. Baking soda has so many benefits for skin care and the fight against acne that you can write an entire site! First of all, the material is cheap! This day and age, save any kind of money is a good thing! Second, the grains are extremely small and are very smooth and round. This makes it an excellent scrub for removing fat and removing clogged pores. Baking soda also does a great job in getting rid of dead skin around acne and that gives bacteria a lot less to eat. Finally, baking soda will not dry your skin too much. While we want our skin to be dry and oil free, it can not be too dry, otherwise the body will work overtime to produce even more oil than we have to fight.
The beauty of baking soda is that there are several great ways to eliminate acne!
Sodium Bicarbonate as Spray / Toner – Sprays or toners are used after washing your face as additional protection against acne. As with all natural remedies, you will want to try this on a small part of your face for the first time to make sure that you are not allergic to your toner. Start by adding one to two tablespoons of baking soda to a standard spray bottle. Close and shake the bottle slightly until you are sure that the baking soda is completely dissolved. Wash and dry your face then spray a little on your face and let it dry. No need to wash it and make it invisible, however, being aware of myself, I used it before going to bed. I had no problem leaving it all night.
Sodium Bicarbonate Facial Mask – This not only helps to unclog and exfoliate your skin, but it feels good too! Mix the baking soda and a small amount of warm to hot water until you get a good thick paste and spread it evenly over your face. Leave it for about twenty minutes after it dries completely, then wash and dry your face. The sodium bicarbonate facial mask has been used because baking soda has been popular and its price makes it one of my favorite mask solutions.
Sodium bicarbonate as a facial cleanser – The use of baking soda as a facial cleanser is not very different from that of the facial mask. This time you will need to mix enough warm water and baking soda until you get a uniform consistency of facial cleanser, then continue to use the mixture on your face . Rub it gently and let the small texture of the mixture exfoliate your skin. After lightly rubbing and massaging your face for 2-3 minutes with the mixture, rinse and dry. Baking soda will not dry your skin too much, so further cleaning is not necessary.
Whether you use this method or any other method, the most important thing to remember is that you must respect the plan. Most people give up treatment too early in thinking that because they see no improvement overnight, their problem does not improve. With acne treatment, be sure to give it a good week or two before looking to determine the effectiveness of your treatment.
Using baking soda as a facial cleanser is excellent, but use it with olive oil to eliminate acne is even better !
