The Magic of Baking Soda

Unless you’re a baby, you probably need or maybe have used an exfoliating scrub to remove the dead cells from your skin. Babies’ skin exfoliates naturally everyday, that’s why their skin stay healthy and smooth. Unfortunately, that’s not the case with us, we need a lot of help to get a new production of collagen and to let the new rejuvenated skin to surface. That’s why exfoliation should be a part of our beauty regime.

Exfoliating scrub can be found in just about any skin care brands. Haven’t found the right one for you? Here’s the simplest and cheapest way to do it, a tip from Paula Begoun, author of Don’t go the Cosmetics Counter Without Me, and The Beauy Bible. Add a little bit of baking soda to your skin cleanser, mix it with your fingertips and massage in circles all over your face, and rinse. Or you can cleanse first, and exfoliate afterwards by mixing the baking soda with water. Don’t forget to rinse your face with cold water and don’t overdo it, two times a week is enough. I’ve tried this a few times and it makes me feel silly for spending big bucks on Clinique Exfoliating Scrub!
