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).

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 :(

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!!
