I have been using baking soda internally to treat my acne and it has really worked for me! I also ocasssiinally wash my face with it, about once per week. I realize how well it worked now that I have not used it for a week. I have about 10 pimples on my face. Back on the baking soda!

Baking soda is very good for acne. I've been using it as a face wash in place of soap for the last 6 months, and I have seen a great difference. However, I wash my face with castile soap in the mornings in the shower as well. I do the baking soda when I wash my face at nite. Make a paste, rinse, etc

I was a big acne suffer for many years. I've been using baking soda and diluted peppermint soap for over 2 years as a facial wash. I found that baking soda is a great exfoliate when added to the natural cleanser. I also use baking soda as a body exfollient once per month. My skin is clear and soft. I have recently begun using coconut oil as a moisturizer. At one time any type of moisturize would have exacerbated my acne. In essence, you are on the right track.

A friend told me about this website, and its has changed my thinking about the products that I have been applying on my face. I have had bad acne and was put on acutane, which worked. lately I've noticed some little blemish coming back..
I started gently washing my face and body with Baking soda, I haven't used soap at all and find my skin complexion to be clear, and my body is not that itchy. I do have a question about long term use of baking soda on the face? Has anyone out there been using it long term??

Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) for Acne

My son is 12 years old and has bad acne for about 1 1/2 years. I tried many of the over the counter products: cleansers, facial scrubs, toners, astringents, and moisturizers, but nothing worked. While doing some house cleaning using sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and water it occured to me to try that for a face wash for him. I made a paste and have him use it every morning and every night ~ he uses it like any other facial cleanser and it has been fantastic! The pimples have shrunk in size and many are gone. His pores are much smaller. It doesn't burn, sting, or dry out his face. And best of all, it is really inexpensive.

I have been using baking soda in the mornings with my face wash for over 6 months now and I have been acne free since. I am 35 and was still experiencing mild acne with more breakouts around my menstrual cycle. I don't even experience a single pimple around that time of the month! It's truly amazing to me! I started using Hydrogen Peroxide after I washed my face and shortly after I added the baking soda, so I thought it was the combo, but I started to get lazy and stopped using the peroxide, and didn't get any flare ups so now I know it was just the baking soda doing the work!
