This is probably the best diy skin polishing recipe, ever. It’s like getting a microdermabrasion treatment, at one-millionth the cost. And I bet good money that you already have the ingredients at home: baking soda & soap!
Baking soda is unlike other scrubs – the micro grains act like sandpaper, which sounds like the last thing you’d want for your skin, expect for when you do. It’s still gentle enough – but it does such an amazing job at removing that dead, outer layer of the skin: the layer that is responsible for dullness and fine wrinkles and where sun-damage lies. It also helps with those miserable blackheads that like to pop up! No worries, with a little baking soda – bumps become smooth, skin glows… cakes rise, it’s amazing stuff!
DIY Skin Polishing Recipe
- baking soda
- normal face wash
- pour a little face wash in the palm of your hand
- add baking soda until you create a paste
- very gently scrub your face, or why not grab your body wash, jump in the shower and do your whole body!
- wash with water and then feel how incredibly smooth your skin is!
Do this once or twice a month, but no more than that – or your skin may get sensitive and peel. This treatment not only keeps your skin renewed, but it makes for better absorption of the moisturisers and serums that you apply, which means you get more benefit out of your products. Just make sure there are no chemicals in your products, you don’t want your new skin soaking all that in! Go do it! 🙂

I have very sensitive skin, however the baking soda works quite well on my skin and doesn’t irritate me at all surprisingly! I love this and actually use it about once to twice a week! Skin feels so clean afterwards!
Hi Donna! That’s why I love baking soda as a scrub – it’s still gentle enough, but really gets in there to clean! I must be a bit more sensitive, because if I do it too often, my skin peels a bit – good to hear your experience, because everyone can have different results and we should do what works for us. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Now this sounds like a DIY beauty product I could get behind. Thank you very much for sharing this with me!
Baking soda is actually very bad for your skin, as it is a base. The skin has an acidic composition, so applying baking soda is very harmful. I would recommend diluted apple cider vinegar to soften the face and reduce pore size.
