Let’s talk about my favorite skin care technique, Microdermabrasion! Micro fine abrasive crystals that buff away the surface layer of skin-cells. Typically done by your Esthetician or your Dermatologist, I like them to reveal new skin, so products can penetrate deeper into my skin. But majority of people use it to get rid of acne scarring, fine lines/wrinkles, discoloring and sun damage. This is a really expensive procedure to get done, but I’m looking out for you guys and I found a way to get it at home with two products everyone has in their kitchen.
- 1 Tbsp of Baking Soda
- 1-2 Tbsp of Water
I’ve done some research and baking soda is the most natural things to apply to your face. Key in removing dead skin cell layers, yet baking soda is alkaline and you need to restore the PH balance of your skin back. That’s where a toner comes in.
Apply the baking soda in a small bowl, add water, and mix with your hands or either a spoon. Until a paste is formed, it should look like this…
Leave on for 3-5 minutes, (I usually leave mine on for 20 minutes, but if you have sensitive skin I wouldn’t recommend it.)
Rinse with warm water, and follow with a toner to restore your PH balance. & don’t forget your moisturizer!
Great for removing blackheads and acne scarring, or even if you want fresh smoother skin. Great for the winter time, I’d recommend doing this once every few weeks since this is an intense exfoliation, and for my sensitive skin people lol, maybe like once or twice a month. You can either add lemon to brighten, add lavender to soothe or honey for antibacterial properties.
