Save Money By Exfoliating With Baking Soda

We love how baking soda is the answer to every hygiene problem. Just shove baking soda in every available orifice, we’re sure it’ll work miracles. There should be an episode of House, M.D. where House cures people with baking soda. Anyhow, 2 Pennies Earned has a tip for some cheap face exfoliating and we thought, “Oh, why not?”

    “Instead of paying extra money for a facial exfoliant that is probably too harsh for the delicate skin on your face (despite what the manufacturer would have you believe), just add a little bit of baking soda to some Cetaphil (an excellent mild face wash that I use twice a day), mix with your fingertips, massage in circles all over your face, and rinse. For a gentler exfoliant, simply use more Cetaphil and less baking soda in your mixture.

Let us know how that works out. —MEGHANN MARCO
