Is Normal Saline Solution good for acne-prone skin?

     Normal Saline Solution (NSS) is a 0.9% sodium chloride solution generally used for wound irrigation, cleansing and rinsing. Acne and pimple may cause an “open wound” which should be kept clean to promote skin healing. Using NSS for facial cleansing is a simple and effective way to keep acne-affected area clean, which will help promote skin healing, avoid further infections, and lessen scars.


Does Normal Saline Solution (0.9% Sodium Chloride) have bactericidal property?

     Sterile 0.9% sodium chloride solution is not bactericidal. The formula consists of sterile water and pure salt, with no other additives, preservatives, or antibacterial agents added to the solution. The solution is then terminally sterilized at high temperature. The result is a sterile isotonic solution which is hypoallergenic and gentle for all skin types.
