may have helped acne? BURNED MY FACE ok, i'm not sure if my skin is super sensitive, or what...but i used very little baking soda and mixed it with water in...i even made it a watery consistency to play it safe and use as little as possible! and i rubbed it as gently as possible for only 15-20 seconds before washing it off. it literally burned my face. i have dark patches all over my cheeks...i think they're thin scabs, so it should take only a few days to go away, but STILL!
however, it may have helped because i haven't developed many pimples in the last few days, and it seems like i normally wake up with a few new ones every day...it sucks.
today i mixed some baking soda with honey to make it more soothing, and it felt much better that way. i think everyone should give it a go, but maybe try testing it on a small area for a few days to see if it burns your skin!
