The all powerful baking soda! Use #2: Exfoliating Facial Scrub

Baking Soda makes a very nice, and gentle facial scrub. Something to use once a week, or even every other week if you have more sensitive skin, to get the dead skin cells off you face. Leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh.

All you need is a sink, water, baking soda, and a face! (that sounded kinda morbid)

I take a small handful of baking soda, moisten it with a bit of water, and then apply to my face, using my fingers to rub in small circular motions. Staying away from the eyes. In the past I've also used a facial brush to apply the baking soda.
And when I feel my skin is free of dead skin cells, I rinse thoroughly with water. Then after patting my face dry, I apply a liberal amount of moisturizer, and I may later apply some more, if my skin feels at all dry.

I have also used this all over, but usually I like a good sugar scrub for that.

This is such a good idea. I always just used baking soda as toothpaste. :D

I've done that too, it's really so much more affordable then regular toothpaste! And probably a lot more healthy.
