Using Baking Soda to Clear Acne Scars - 2 Powerful Methods

Baking soda is a very popular natural method for clearing acne. It can also be used to help fade stubborn acne scars as well, and if you find that you're having difficulty with your scars, I would encourage you to give baking soda a go. It's very cheap, very easy to use and very effective.

What baking soda is really good for is exfoliation. It helps to shed the skin and encourage new skin growth. As I say all the time, exfoliation is part of a successful acne scar routine and many people find great success with baking soda on its own.

Directions:

    Take a teaspoon or two of baking soda and place it on a small plate.

    Add a drop of water. You don't need much at all here.


    Mix it up well. What you want to do here is make a paste of the stuff. If you add too much water it will turn into a liquid and won't exfoliate the skin quite as well as the paste does. Of course if you add too much soda it won't turn into anything... but that's probably not going to be a problem.

    Use a finger and massage it into your scars. It feels a little rough, but won't be too bad.

    Leave the mixture on the skin for several minutes. The mixture will harden as the water evaporates.

    Wash it off well.

    You will probably need to repeat this treatment several times before you start seeing consistent results. Acne scars require a very consistent effort to clear, but with time, patience and regular application of natural treatments, you will find results.

There are a few other ways you can use baking soda. The method above makes a paste. The paste is a very effective and efficient way of exfoliating the skin, but other methods work too. You can also try this one:

Second Method:

    Add a teaspoon or two of baking soda to a dish.
    Add water. Use more then last time, as we want to make a liquid, not a paste. You still won't need much water, just add enough so it becomes a liquid.
    Use a cotton ball to apply it all over your affected areas.
    Go to sleep.
    Wake up and wash it off.

This method creates a face mask and leaves it on for a lot longer then the first method. It's also a method of using baking soda that people have found extremely effective. If you have any current acne, then the second method is the one to use. It's the one that will help you to heal acne and remove the scars.

    1. You're rubbing too hard and doing it too often. Gently exfoliate, if the one spot you're rubbing begins to burn then it's time to move on to another. You need to stop using it for a while to let your skin breathe heal and take a break.

    3. i've started using baking soda and i have very sensitive skin that my dermatologist herself tells me i got very thin facial skin. I used to easily break out even as i was going to the derma regularly and i got sick and tired of it. I accidentally stumbled on a youtube video or a korean girl discussing her use of baking soda. Now korean girls have got the most amazing skin! So i tried it. That was last year. And I never went back to my derma. And never gotten break outs anymore either. The once of twice i got, went away in under a day and never left any mark on my skin. I do continuously use a moisturizer after every wash though and even my acne scars seemed to have gone away - actually they lightened up so good it was hard to see them at first glance now. I am now a devoted baking soda user. And yeah, i do use them everyday.

  13. Acne is a skin condition that affects up to 80% of people in their teens and twenties, and up to 5% of older adults. While many people recover from acne without any permanent effects, some people are left with disfiguring acne scars. There are some topical skin care products and medications that can improve mild scarring, but most acne scars are treated with a combination of surgical procedures and skin resurfacing.Mike Walden Review

  19. I’m a little skeptical about using baking soda for treating acne. It’s true that it can tighten the pores. However, it’s not good because it can hurt your facial skin if you use it often. It may be effective for others, but it doesn’t mean that it’s the best.

    DGHS provide this vaccine free of 65 health centers all over the country. But this vaccine is not available for people for this reason some people are deprive from the treatment. This patient purchased the vaccine from outer shop. Each vaccine cost is 500- 700.
    A rabies patient must need to drink fresh water. Dr. Clark recommended a LVPEF device which is called ParaZapper. It can kill all microbes and bacteria from water and water based environments. The use of this product to help rabies infected patients could save lives so that research is needed.

Her T-zone last time was super oily and now totally replaced by a new healthy skin. I didnt believe at that moment and now I am starting to use baking soda as a strongly recommendation from her. Really hope this one will work well on my face.

  37. Laser hair removal Dermatologists use lasers sources to safely and effectively treat larger areas of unwanted hair with minimal level of pain for patient and fewer complications than other hair-reduction methods.Lasers are equipped with a cooling system that eliminate the heat from the laser vim and also protects the front layer of skin from excessive heating and potential changes in pigmentation.IPL devices send specific concentrated light through the skin that is absorbed by the melanin pigment present in the hair follicle shafts. Because hair grows in cycles, repeated treatments are necessary to destroy the hair follicles.

  39. Each and every single individual does have a different reaction to different treatments. Others will find that using baking soda this way will be very effective for them. There will be others too who will develop rashes, or whose skin will respond negatively to the product. I think the safest way is to consult a dermatologist to see what treatment is perfect for your skin type and condition.

  67. In order for you to get rid of acne forever,

    1. You must learn what the cause of your acne is and how to control it.
    2. The right and effective acne treatment means a treatment not only remove acne from the face but it also stops it from coming again.

    I am following the programme "Acne No More" by Medical Researcher and Nutritionist Mike Walden and in it, he covers both these methods perfectly. I had tried a lot of methods to rid myself of my crippling acne. This program worked. My acne had cleared up and very quickly, I might add. My skin is now remarkably clear. Not a day goes by where I don't thank the lord that I found this powerful solution. It really works, I highly recommend you to check it out.
