I have a personal rule for skin care:

"If I wouldn't want to eat it, I will not rub it on my skin"

Now, read the ingredients on most skin care products. Not exactly what I would want for lunch. So, I have figured out some ways to make a few of my favorite skin care "essentials" from products you can purchase in the baking aisle!

Step 1: Get It Together

What you will need:

Baking soda

A container

Wet Fingers (preferably your own)

Step 2: Preparation

Pour a small amount of baking soda into your container.

(I use a little glass dish from my kitchen that I thought was useless, UNTIL NOW!!)

I keep the dish in the high corner of my shower and just refill as needed.


Step 3: Make a Paste

Dip wet fingertips into baking soda. This will make a paste on your fingers.* You can adjust the consistency to your liking by using more or less water.

*You do not need to wet all the baking soda in the container unless you have a giant face OR you want to use it on other parts of your body. This product can be used all over. Except your eyeballs, I wouldn't go there.

Step 4: Apply

Apply paste to clean skin using your fingertips. A circular motion works best.

Step 5: Rinse

Using warm water, rinse paste from your skin.

I apply and rinse in the shower.

I recommend exfoliating your face once a week. Be sure to use moisturizer and sunscreen after you cleanse and exfoliate.

HAPPY SCRUBBING!!

<p>That is definitely simple and affordable</p>
<p>Yes! We over complicate most things in life.....I like to simplify!</p>
