Natural Scar/Blemish Remover

If you suffer from pimples would try anything to get rid of them. Luckily, this is one spot treatment which is often successful, as the baking soda dries out pimples and removes excess oil from the skin. The benefit of this home remedy is that it's extremely cheap and easy to use.

Baking soda is amphoteric - which means that it can operate as either an acid or a base. In this way, it can help to neutralize any pH imbalances on the skin. pH imbalances on the skin are a common cause of acne.
Baking soda helps to dry the skin, removing the excess oil which leads to blackheads and breakouts. It also has mild anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, which help to reduce the size of pimples.
When mixed with water, baking soda forms a fine, gritty paste which helps to clean and exfoliate the skin, removing oil, dirt and dead skin cells.

Baking soda can also be very drying and sometimes causes redness and irritation in people with sensitive skin. It is a good idea to test out the baking soda treatment on a small patch of skin before applying it all over the face. If you experience any negative side effects, do not continue.

Even if you do not experience any negative side effects, you should avoid using baking soda too regularly. Over time, the baking soda can upset the pH balance of your skin, potentially leading to bacteria growth and more pimples. Therefore, baking soda should be used on the skin no more than twice per week.

Natural Scar/Blemish Remover recipe:  A simple do-it-yourself remedy to minimize acne marks/blemishes. Leave by mixing 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon purified water to create a paste. Apply to affected area for 5 minutes; splash off. After, apply coconut oil. Prevents darkening. Can be done before sleeping. Worth a try!

May not work for everyone, but it's always worth a try. No need for scrubbing.
