So I am experimenting and made a hydrogen peroxide and baking soda mask. It tingles, and I am going to leave it on for 10 min. Lets see how this works...

anyone else try this or anything else?

ooh hydrogen peroxide...please be careful with that! I would suggest using it very sparingly if at all...some people like just plain baking soda mixed with a little water followed by a DILUTED apple cider vinegar toner...that might be a little kinder to your skin...

As far as I know hydrogen peroxide is a free radical and damages skin..

hydrogen peroxide. There is a great deal of current research showing that hydrogen peroxide is problematic as a topical disinfectant because it can greatly reduce the production of healthy new skin cells (Source: Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, September 2001, pages 675–687). Hydrogen peroxide is also a strong oxidizing agent, meaning that it generates free-radical damage. While it can function as a disinfectant, the cumulative problems that can stem from impacting the skin with a substance that is known to generate free-radical damage, impair the skin’s healing process, cause cellular destruction, and reduce optimal cell functioning are serious enough that it is better to avoid its use (Sources: Carcinogenesis, March 2002, pages 469–475; Anticancer Research, July–August 2001, pages 2719–2724; and Cellular and Molecular Biology, April 2007, pages 1–2). See free-radical damage.

I use baking soda with a little water. It makes my face real smooth and bright. I’m not sure if it helps with the acne. I haven't noticed much deference, but my skin is less oily.

Baking soda is basicly sea salt , sea salt is great for healing cuts and its apparently good for Ecxzama or however you spell it , theres lots of little brilliant ways you can utilise it.

Useually when ive been at the beach or ive been at sea, my complextion looks 100% better due to the salt in the water and including the fresh air ofcourse..

Baking soda aka bicarbonate of soda will give the user a clear complexion its the equivilant of going to the beach and washing your face with sea salt really...but the paste/mask is prob more proficent for the purpose.

I havent noticed any improvements on my spots yet but it sure does burn them and get all the puss out within them. It also depends on skin type aswell unfortunatly sad.gif

Baking soda without a doubt clears all the bactria in the skin which therefore prevents spots, it also leaves your face feeling smooth as you prob know..

My plan is to get a baking soda mask tonight, afterwards resulting with a rinse and a little dab of apple vinegar on the blemishes..Im also very cautious of moisturisers blocking up pours, personally i just stick with olive oil its pure and organic and trust worthy.

good luck

sorry for the typos , not slept in a LONG time. lolz

what i use on my skin is baking soda and witch hazel toner im going natural on my skin so it's good for my skin sometimes if my skin feels a little dry i use olive oil, aloe vera or honey. the olive oil and aloe vera i leave on but the honey i rinse off after 30 min because it's too sticky.im liking it so far but i want a little more exfoliation so i think im going to add a sponge to the regimen. oh and i almost forgot i use teatree oil to stop the zits at night. im loving <3 it!!
