Get Rid Of Heat Rash With Baking Soda
Heat rash is caused due to clogged sweat glands and trapped sweat and bacteria. Since the sweat is blocked from flowing out, it creates blisters and rashes on the skin. Baking soda is Bicarbonate of soda. It is a chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. It is weakly alkaline in nature and can help to break down acids and proteins. It is available for commercial use and has a gritty texture which can gently cleanse and exfoliate facial skin. Treating heat rashes with baking soda is especially beneficial to the skin since the natural compound has many skin healing properties. Baking soda can be easily made into a paste with water (1/2 teaspoon mixed with 4 ounces of water) to be applied to the skin directly.
