How does baking soda treat acne scars?

Baking soda is one of the most effective ingredients in ridding the skin of pesky acne scars. Here is how it works to properly clear your skin.

  • Baking soda exfoliates the skin and removes dirt, dead skin cells and oil which is trapped inside the pores.
  • Its anti-inflammatory property soothes irritated skin and red marks of acne scars.
  • Baking soda balances the pH level to its natural state, which helps to fade away acne scars by preventing bacteria from clumping.
  • It can encourage growth of collagen to fill the indented acne scars (this also encourages the growth of new skin).
  • Baking soda has natural bleaching and lightening properties that helps fade acne scars to resemble your natural skin tone.

Whether you believe these baking soda facials will work or not, it’s definitely worth a try. The simple ingredients are ones you’re sure to already own. Just mix them up, slather them on your skin and relax for a few minutes before washing it all off. Here’s the recipe.
