The truth about baking powder as a remedy for Blackheads, visible pores and dark armpits.
Baking powder is a food additive containing chemical leaving agents which is a mixture of carbonate or bicarbonate and a weak acid. This also has a special property which neutralizes any pH imbalance on the skin and also exfoliates to remove dirt, oil and dead skin cells, and could potentially kill off bacteria that causes acne. The mild antiseptic and anti inflammatory properties in baking powder also helps to constrict pores and prevent future breakouts. The powder is activated when liquid is added, producing carbon dioxide and forming bubbles that causes acne, ( This could also be a way to test a good baking powder). This should be done occasionally, maybe after 2-3 weeks.
