I mentioned before in my book review of Annie Strole’s Homemade Beauty recipes that her Microdermabrasion recipe is currently my fave. Here it is for all you sufferers of winter dry skin! This is a super gentle receipe that helped me get rid of my flakey dry skin this winter. Make sure you cleanse your face really well beforehand, and hydrate your face afterwards to lock in moisture.

Ingredients:

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp water

1/2 tsp lemon juice

5 drops lavender essential oil (optional)

Instructions:

Mix all ingredients and apply to your face. The lemon will fizz up a little when you add it to the baking soda. This is normal. Massage gently on your skin for 2-5 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Storage:

Keep in airtight container for a couple days if wet ingredients are mixed in already.

I like to use this scrub in the shower as I find it easier to wash off the baking soda more completely. The first time I tried this recipe I did it over the sink and made a bit of a mess on the countertop. If you’re pressed for time you can even make this the night before your morning shower, which is what I do. It will keep just fine in the shower for a couple days if you use an airtight container. But don’t keep it any longer than that, due to the lack of preservatives.

  1. Baking soda scrub is my favorite and it’s so budget friendly too! But I never dared to try it with lemon :S
