Baking Soda as exfoliator?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I decided to add an exfoliator into my regimen now that my inflamed acne is under control. I have several blackheads that I want to get rid of and I read that baking soda is a good exfoliator.

As of now, I think this will be my regimen.


1. Cleanse with Cetaphil daily cleanser

2. Exfoliate using baking soda

3. Add apply cider vinegar (1:1 with water) to even out pH level

4. Dan's 2.5% BP

5. Olay sensitive spf moisterizer.

During the day i don't have as much time so I skip a few steps and just do:

1. Cleanse

2. BP

3. Moisterizer

Do you guys think this regimen will help me get rid of the blackheads? will there be any initial breakouts? I've used ACV for the past 2 months as a toner, so I don't think I will breakout from that. Lastly... did anyone ever have any bad results with baking soda?

Thoughts please! thanks!

Have you considered manual removal? Don't be too harsh on your blackheads, they can be easily inflamed

hmm I just started using it recently, don't really see any improvements.

I broke out a little bit (small inflamed acne), but that could be because I didn't wash my face one night a week ago. As of now, I am just putting it on my face, leaving it on for a minute or two and taking it off. I do this once every 3 nights.

What exfoliators would you recommend? and what are some manual removal methods? Do note that some of these blackheads have been on my face for months.
