Get Rid of Acne Fast with Baking Soda

Inexpensive and easy to use, this may be your answer for fast acne treatment

If you suffer from acne, you know that acne treatments can be 'hit and miss'. What works for one person may not work at all for the next. Unfortunately, many of these treatments tend to be expensive and involve a trip to the dermatologist. Many acne sufferers find success with this simple baking soda remedy. See if it works for you.

Baking soda acne treatment

First, wash your face with a mild soap that doesn't contain strong chemicals or perfumes and gently pat your face dry with a soft towel. While your face finishes air-drying, mix up your baking soda paste to apply to the areas affected by acne.

To mix up the paste, put two to three tablespoons of baking soda in a small bowl. Add water, a few drops at a time until you have a nice paste. You don't want the paste too thick to spread, but you also don't want it so watered down that it runs off your face.

When you have your paste the right consistency, gently apply it to the affected areas. Massage the paste into the area in a circular motion remembering to be gentle. Baking soda is mildly abrasive so you don't want to scrub vigorously.

Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, either rinse the paste off after 15 seconds or leave it on until it dries. For people who have sensitive skin, the baking soda may sting. If the stinging is too uncomfortable, remove it immediately. Experiment with how long you should leave on the paste.

Rinse the paste with warm water and pat your face dry once again with a soft towel. Apply a moisturizer to soothe your skin. Be sure not to use a moisturizer with strong perfumes or chemicals.

Try this baking soda paste every day. After ten days of this acne treatment, you should begin to see improvement. After one month, you may discover your skin is acne free. This is one of the easiest and least expensive of all the acne treatments. Give it a try and see if it works for you and clears your acne.
