Baking Soda perhaps........
Using a facial scrub to exfoliate is a great way to provide your skin with some much-needed revitalisation. “In addition to revealing fresh skin cells, exfoliating removes dead cells from pores, making them appear smaller.
Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, is a mild abrasive, which makes it an excellent exfoliator for your skin. Baking soda can help remove oils when used in a facial wash and can be a beneficial part of your overall skin care routine. After using baking soda in a facial wash, make sure to follow up with a moisturizer to add hydration to your skin.
If you already have a liquid soap or facial cleanser, you can add a ½ tsp of baking soda to improve its exfoliating properties. Or, you can make a simple paste using just baking soda and water. It’s one of the easiest and quickest ways to clean your face with baking soda.
Combine these ingredients in a small bowl:
• 2 tsp. Baking Soda
• 1 tsp. warm water
Use your finger to stir the baking soda and water until you get a thin paste then apply to your wet face with your fingers, rubbing in small circular motions. Be sure to keep it away from your eyes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water, until all of the cleanser is removed. Pat your face dry with a clean towel.
While no product works for everyone all the time (everyone’s skin is different, after all), baking soda is an effective facial cleanser and exfoliator for many.
