Skincare Secret

This post contains affiliate links.  Just stuff I love.

I love skincare.  I love trying new products, I love the anticipation of what might make my skin smoother, more glowing, and less under-eye-dark-circly.  And I am a marketer’s dream.  Ooh, this is made from snails, which make silk and therefore my skin will feel like silk?!  Done and done.  No, but really.

I have tried some “fancy” skin stuff, I’ve used the drugstore stuff, and I’ve gone without stuff (don’t try that last one).  So I have some definite opinions, as I have been let down numerous times (the snail masks are kinda cool, though).  But over and over, I return to my one SUPER cheap, SUPER amazing secret.

K, ready?

Baking Soda.  Yes, huh!!  Ok, I’ll explain.  Apparently baking soda can do everything from de-odor your fridge, to whiten your teeth, to SMOOTH YOUR FACE.  Most of the time multi-use products freak me out (sorry, coconut oil, I could never get on that train), but I believe in baking soda.

Here’s what you do: mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with one teaspoon of water.  Mix it into a paste (you don’t really have to measure, just aim for a paste consistency).  Then on a make-up-less face, rub the paste all over for about a minute.  Focus on your T zone and any other spots that get rough.  Then rinse like a girl in a commercial where water gets everywhere!  Or just do it normally.   Gently pat your new-baby-skin-face dry.  If you like, you can follow up with a Ph balancing mix of a little bit of apple cider vinegar diluted with water swiped all over, or you can just throw on your industrial strength moisturizer like me. #lazy.

You will totally tell a difference when you go to put make-up on (assuming you’re like me and still do that with your hands).  Your skin should feel super smooth and a little glowy. I do this once a week, since it’s kinda intense.  Baking soda was the original microdermabrasion and is soooooo much cheaper than basically any other skin thing, ever.  Win-win.

Let me know if you try it!!  I can’t wait to hear how glowy and youthful and amazing you look.
