Would you like to know how to clear acne scars with baking soda? You may have heard on the internet (or even out in the real world!) that baking soda is a very effective natural treatment for acne scars. And you’d be right! Baking soda is very popular as a natural treatment because it’s a) cheap and b) works rather well. If you’d like to give baking soda a go, then follow these steps:
Buy some baking soda. If you have some in the cupboards, ignore that and still go and buy some. I recommend that you get some specifically for your skincare routine. This will mean that you’ll have some for both cooking and some for the skin. You can also store it in the bathroom if you want!
Wash your face well. With warm soapy water! This will help to dislodge any particles of dirt, dust, oil or sweat that can be removed before we apply the baking soda.
Make a paste of baking soda. This is pretty easy to do. Just use a teaspoon or two of baking soda and add a drop of water. You don’t need much water! Really, just a drop. It will become a liquid if you add too much water and we want a paste.
Massage it into the skin well. You can use a finger or two to do this. It will feel quite rough on the skin – this is a good thing. Baking soda paste is a very effective exfoliator and helps to remove dead skin. The massaging of the skin improves blood flow and helps fade the scars and reduce further acne outbreaks.
Wash it off well! This is important, don’t leave any caked on the skin! Your skin won’t thank you for that.
If you like you can moisturize the skin after you’ve performed this baking soda treatment, and if your skin is especially dry or oily this is a great finish.
How often to treat the skin with baking soda? Well, if you can manage it, once a day. If you don’t think you can stick to that regime once every couple of days will be okay. It’s useful to create something like a wall chart that can help you to keep on track.
And how long will it take to see results? I don’t know. Neither do you, and it could take a week, a month or longer. You’ll simply have to be consistent with your treatments, don’t ignore the other natural acne scar treatments and keep hope alive. You’ll get there!
