I sensitive skin, but oiler in the t-zone and lots of blackheads and conjested skin...
if you mix baking soda with a little bit of water so that it is a paste texture and use as an exfoliator its amazing, your blackheads literally go away!

Tried my first home remedy skin treatment this week! A total win. I had a really mean blemish that wasn't going away with my spot treatment stuff, so I made a baking soda mask with some water, wore it for 15 mins, and it dried up over night. I did not experience the intense burning as others have noted, just some tingling. As others have mentioned, be sure to slap lotion on right after since it definitely dried out my entire face. If you have dry skin, this is not for you - my skin is still a bit dry two days later.

I dip my Olay Pro-X brush in baking soda, and it is a great gentle abrasive for exfoliation. It's cheap and seems to help dry out pimples. I love it.

I get gross blackheads on my nose and have searched high and low to find something to eradicate these little monsters. I have used Tretinoin, Neostrata, acv, lemon juice, oils, and even a blackhead extractor (which I haven't perfected its use), and that's just naming SOME. Mind you, I probably didn't use any of the aforementioned remedies long enough to see results, but I get tired of looking at them so I always try searching for new ways to possibly treat these.
I try sticking to natural ways to treat my skin so when I stumbled across baking soda I figured, why not? Now, I am aware that baking soda is highly alkaline so if not used properly and in moderation, it can do more harm than good.
The first time I used it (just on my nose), I used a dab too much and my nose ended up stinging a bit. It was red for about 15 minutes afterwards but that was the only side effect of the miscalculation of baking soda that I used. Aside from the redness, I did notice however, that my nose looked a ton cleaner and a lot less blackhead ridden.
I got a little thrown off by the stinging at first and thought my skin was too sensitive to handle baking soda so I didn't continue using it for a while.
Well, I've been using it again and this is the only thing that has helped the blackheads. It isn't a complete cure, but I think that this will take time as I've had clogged pores in this area for a while. I am happy about seeing such sudden results. I have also toned down how much baking soda I use. I usually do this in the shower with a pinch of baking soda and gently massage in circular motions for about 30 seconds. I rinse it off and I'm good to go. No stinging, burning, or redness.
After using baking soda, I've heard it's good to tone your skin with something like apple cider vinegar as that has a ph balance closer to our skin while baking soda doesn't.
The only reason I didn't give this 5 lippies is because I wan't to know how long term this will work. I can't tell just yet.
I don't think this is an everyday remedy, at least not for me. For the price and the accessibility of baking soda, you can't go wrong. I would recommend doing a patch test on yourself first, just to see how your skin reacts.

One of the most underrated skincare products.
t's cheap and super effective. I have acne prone skin and this makes it so smooth and soft! My skin actually glows after I use this. Others have suggested ways to apply this so I won't get into that. This has a permanent spot in my skincare routine, nothing I've used has been as effective and yet gentle and affordable as baking soda. Highly recommended!!

It's great, gentle face exfoliant mixed with cleanser. Sometimes too gentle, then I use extra fine sugar instead. However, it's cheap and works great.

I am extremely allergic to soap, bodywash, etc, etc and so out of desperation I turned to baking soda.
It took a little bit of getting used to and I have found that when it is very watered down it works wonderfully.
Not all baking soda is the same and the best in my opinion is Arm and Hammer.

This may be a new use of baking soda. I have been visiting Las Vegas where it's hot and humid and my crystal rock deodorant is not cutting it. I have been pre-washing my armpits with baking soda and then using soap and the body order is almost gone. It's a great tip!

I will never buy another expensive face scrub again! I have been using baking soda as a face scrub every 4 days or so and the improvement to my pores alone has been very noticeable. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin with mild rosacea- so I am very gentle when I use this. Overall, my face is much smoother, pores are tighter- and cleaner! I will continue to use this multi-use gem!
