You know how when we all hit puberty everyone started having horrible skin issues? Yea, that was definitely me. I went through every skin cream, beauty product and prescription out there to try and get my complexion under control. Nothing worked. It wasn’t until I stumbled onto a simple idea, that sounded so simple I initially blew it off, that my skincare routine finally start moving in the right direction. I went from spending an insane amount of money on skincare products to spending next to nothing thanks to my baking soda facial scrub.
It may sound a little out there but stay with me here for a second.
Twice a day, every day I splash a little water on my face, use a dime size amount of baking soda (yea, the same stuff you buy at the grocery store), and gently exfoliate. Once done, I simply wash off and moisturize with a very gentle moisturizing lotion and that’s it!
I’m not even kidding, my breakouts literally stopped within days! I don’t know if it’s because I was aggravating my skin with all of the products I was using. Maybe I was overdoing it and causing more breakouts than I was curing. But after trying every product I could get my hands on, baking soda was the one thing that worked. Go figure.
It’s only a bonus that it costs next to nothing to buy. And I can say that because I started using my baking soda facial scrub about seven years ago and have never looked back. That was LONG before I ever even knew what the word budget meant!
Now, do I still have the occasional breakout? Of course. Hormones are lame. But there isn’t much I can do about that as far as topical corrections are concerned. Overall, using baking soda as a facial scrub has completely made over my skincare routine, and I couldn’t be happier about it!
It almost feels silly sharing this in a post, because of how simple it is, but I love using my baking soda as a facial scrub so much it’s criminal not to share.
