baking soda?

Recommended Posts

i've heard from a bunch of people on another site that baking soda was good for reducing redness? I've been mixing it into a paste with water and applying it once/day.

so far all its done is dry my skin out and make it even more red.. . i've been doing it for about a week now.

I wouldn't recommend it. It's highly alkaline and can interfere with the pH balance of your skin, causing it to become abnormally dry.

It works very well for me. I use it once a day though--some people use it twice. I follow with an ACV toner which seems to keep me in balance My skin is not sensitive. Rarely dry. So far so good! I've seen a dramatic difference in the overall clarity of my complexion.

Hope that helps. good luck!

the first few days i used it, completely fine! but after about a week, i started noticing these flesh colored bumps emerging and ive heard this happen to some other people who have used it too. i guess it depends on your skin! be careful.
