Baking soda makes a great cheap exfoliating scrub. It also has a strong drying effect so it's especially good for oily skin.

I’ve written before about how baking soda makes an excellent facial and body cleanser (here).

But if you do not have very oily skin (like me!) it can be extremely drying to use everyday.

If you can’t take the dryness, you can still use baking soda as a scrub once a week.

Tip: Use more baking soda to get a good exfoliating scrub on. The good thing is that the particles are very fine – so if you have sensitive skin that turns red easily, this scrub is perfect for you.
