Not long ago, my daughter Kayla had a strange unexplained breakout on her chin. She tried everything. We ordered her several of the well-known acne treatments on the market and she spent countless dollars on sensitive skin acne treatments including some labeled “organic”.
No matter what she tried, nothing cleared up the blemishes.
So she opted to search for a natural fix.
Somewhere on the net, she found that washing your face with baking soda could work miracles so she tried it.
Within a few short weeks, her face had cleared up!
Flash forward to my forehead and hormones.
Yes it’s that time of life for me apparently and randomly, my forehead broke out for the first time in my life. I know why it happened…
It happened because I made fun of my son.
He played high school football this year, and had one lone pimple on his forehead. Now normally, pimples would go right away on him, but not this one.
This one was right on the area of his forehead where his helmet would press when he got hit by a blocker in football. Every single game, that pimple got busted open, every week from July to November. He tried everything including Band Aids and thick head bands but to no avail. It sort of became the running joke with all of us.
So, I think my punishment was that my forehead broke out. So I tried the home remedy my daughter did and …can you believe it?
My forehead cleared up.
Ever since, I have been using this treatment to wash my face daily. My skin has stayed blemish free.
And it’s cheap.
Mr. Wonderful hates the word “Cheap” and often corrects me by saying “use inexpensive instead”.
Ready for the super fancy remedy?
Make a thin paste of water and baking soda, and scrub your face with it. Rinse.
One sixteen ounce box is under a dollar.
That’s a lot of face washes for nothing.
My dad also uses it for bug stings..same thing – make a paste, apply and let it dry. It pulls the poison right out.
