Keloids and scars are in fact just overgrowth of skin tissue which starts to cover the injury you have in order to protect it from additional damage. They are just an overproduction of collagen. That’s why baking soda is a wonderful remedy for this condition due to the fact that it can boost the continuous production of new healthy skin cells by exfoliation.
In order to eliminate the keloids you should mix the baking soda and water (1:3 ratio) to create a paste. Mix it well until they’re combined and then apply it on your skin topically, scrubbing gently for a couple of minutes. Rinse with warm water and do the procedure over and over again until you are happy with the result.
It’s very important to begin treating the injury early in order to prevent the scar in the first place. Prevention is always the best option for everything, even for this.
