I recently borrowed a beauty book from the library that recommended using baking powder as a facial scrub, mixed with a water based cleanser. I have tried it and have to say it really does work! The texture and size of the grains is just about right and it left my skin very soft and clean. It did feel a bit 'hot' and tingly for a second when I first rubbed it in though. Combined with the oil cleansing method + hot flannel and using vaseline instead of expensive night cream I have been pretty impressed with the results. If I use my old cleanser now my skin feels very dry and flakey afterwards and the scrub is great at removing that. Also I can use up all the old out of date baking powder in my cupboard! Anyone else used this?
