This, I tell you, is a miracle thingie. I have been experimenting so much with baking soda. Dishes, laundry, stains, odors, grease – damn the thing goes every where. I’ve noticed that it dries the skin, BUT makes the hands feel nice and clean.
So I decided to give it a try on my face.
I mixed a little baking soda with water and scrubbed my face and neck. For about a minute of so. Then washed it off with ice cold water.
Oh my! What can I say?
I looked like a red baffoon.
My face is so soft and clean. I can’t stop feeling it!
Add 2 drops of tea tree oil to the paste. This came to me when I sent Ekta a text about it.
The redness did get me worried. So I decided to google “baking soda for skin”. Information I gathered:
– The redness is nothing to worry about
– It has NOT chemicals
– You can do this EVERYDAY! (But if you have dry skin, do it twice a week. Sensitive skin, try a patch first. Oily skin, you will love it!)
– It helps control acne
– Being a fine powder alkaline (ph 8.2) it is NOT harmful or harsh
– It is VERY VERY CHEAP
How much do you spend on face scrubs? I small little bottle can cost anything from Rs 100 to Rs 2000 or even more!
I think this cost me less than 30 paise!
