Baking soda is an ingredient in many exfoliating products, so why pay the extra bucks when you can use it more effectively and cheaply right from the box? It’s gentle enough to use daily. Mix with just enough water to make a medium thick paste. Rub gently around your face for a minute or so, then rinse. It’s a good body scrub, too, used very much in the same way as natural granulated sugar and sea salt, above. Here’s an idea for combining baking soda with essential oils for a body scrub that’s extra-special!
And while you’re at it, baking soda is also good for whitening the teeth. Sprinkle a little onto your toothpaste when you brush.
