1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / The Best Facial Scrub - Ever! on: May 26, 2008 06:07:16 PM
Hi everyone

My face is quite sensitive to scrubs, even though I love them dearly.  But I found this recipe and I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it is.  The criteria for a good scrub is this: 

1.  It has to work well
2.  It has to be as natural and chemical free as possible
3.  It has to be sensitive to my skin
4.  It has to be cheap as possible

And here it is:  BAKING SODA (bicarb soda)!!!

I tried it in different incarnations.  Sometimes mixing it with extra virgin olive oil or sweet almond oil or sorbolene cream.  They all worked well, but I felt the oils were a little too stifling and heavy.  So I just mix it in my palm with a little warm water until it forms a runny paste and I scrub away.

I use it every night after my shower when I've taken off all my makeup. I had lots of rosacea around my nostrils and chin and it has reduced it to no end and I've only been doing it for 4 nights so far.  Also, the blackheads on my nose have practically disappeared and they are getting less each time.

So this scrub fulfills all my criteria and I couldn't be happier.
