The other night I was struck with the idea to use baking soda as a facial scrub. Don't know where the idea came from, but I tried it and it was incredible - my skin was so smooth and wonderfully clean feeling!
To try it yourself, simply mix 1-2 tbsp baking soda with a bit of warm water in the palm of your hand. Gently scrub your face in a circular motion and rinse thoroughly.
I tend to have sensitive skin, so to me, this felt like a pretty deep clean. I don't want to over do it, so I think I'll only do a full scrub once a week or so. For more frequent cleaning, I'm going to try adding just a small amount (less than a teaspoon) to my regular cleanser for just a slight bit of exfoliation on a daily basis.
