Having tried using baking soda on my hair I swore I would never use baking soda again as a beauty treatment and only stick to using it in my cookies; it made my hair like straw and gritty. Like many who have an unnatural attachment to Pinterest, I was browsing along and came across the baking soda scrub. At first, I was going to skip it but that picture of Lauren Conrad's glowing skin was so convincing I thought, "what the heck - give it a try," and I'm so glad I did. My skin is so soft and the clogged pores on my nose are almost all gone.

The recipe is a 3 to 1 ratio of baking soda to water, I use Aloe Vera Juice as it is a bit more moisturizing to my sensitive-dry skin. Without using any pressure, I apply the mixture in a circular motion for a good minute, concentrating on my t-zone and rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat my skin dry. My skin was left unbelievable soft with a rosy glow. I think I should warn those with sensitive skin like mine, a weekly treatment is more than enough to achieve results, anything more might be too harsh for skins like ours. Cheap and effective = HG. Thank you Pinterest.
