How to Use Baking Soda for Acne Acne is probably the most common skin problem.
With about 80% of people, who are between 11 and 30 years old, who face acne at some
point, the problem is widespread. What’s worse is when you have an almost chronic
version of the condition with unpredictable outbreaks and treatments that do not help. If you are nodding, maybe it’s time to try
something new. Something closer to home. Something in your kitchen, to be more specific.The two
most versatile ingredients you will find in most homes are baking soda and white vinegar. Baking soda is not only used for cooking and
cleaning, but white powder is also an excellent beauty ingredient. Here is more on how to
use it for your skin. Facial mask of Baking soda for acne scars When Baking soda is mixed with water, it has

the skin to reduce the inflammation that leads to more severe acne scars. Both have an antioxidant
property that repairs damaged skin to attenuate these scars. Add 2 tablespoons of honey in 1 tablespoon

the vinegar with water). Soak the vinegar in the affected areas of
your skin. Let it stand for about 15-20 minutes.
