Does your face look like this? If you have bad skin, you know how hard it can be to find something that works. A lot of guys that I know who pick regular drugstore acne treatments quit using them in a matter of weeks, or are constantly complaining about the burning and irritation the treatments cause.
Everyone at some point has went to sleep with toothpaste on their skin. The reason why toothpaste works so well is because of the baking soda inside. Baking soda helps remove oil, dirt and bacteria from the pores, which is why it’s so good at getting rid of acne breakouts.
Before you invest in a pricey acne treatment, see if a daily baking soda mask will work for you. Give this treatment at least a month before calling it quits. If you don’t have chronic acne and are using it for just a few pimples, you’ll be able to see a difference after the first usage.
What you will need:
- tbsp of baking soda
- pure water
Mix the two until the mixture looks and feels like a paste. If it’s too watery, it will be too messy when you put it on. You can either apply it all over your face, or directly onto the pimple. Leave it on for at least three minutes. Ff the pimple is really big, you might want to leave it on over night.
Things to add to make the baking soda mask even stronger:
- pure lemon extract (not imitation)
- pure almond extract (not imitation)
- apple cider vinegar
- a crushed vitamin A tablet
All of these extra ingredients naturally draw dead skin, bacteria, oil and dirt out of the skin, however, they all will burn when using them to get rid of acne. If your skin is really bad, I would not HESITATE to grab any one of these to make the baking soda mask even stronger! Cry now, celebrate later 🙂
