Just mix a bit of baking soda in the palm of your hand and with wet fingers, create a paste. Massage it onto your face (avoiding the eye area.) Rinse.
Following the gentle exfoliation with baking soda, I use Johnson’s Baby Wash every day.
When I was in college, my roommate used baby shampoo as an eye makeup remover. I thought she was onto a great idea. The “No More Tears” formula made it good to use around the eye area. (Be aware that direct contact in the eyes could still be irritating.) So, I started using it myself. I have used it most of my adult life since I always had it around when my kids were little.
Later, after my kids were beyond the “baby” stage, they came out with what are known as Baby Washes. They are a thinner consistency and are used as a shampoo/body wash for babies. I now use THIS every day instead of baby shampoo. It is probably the most gentle cleanser out there. (It’s gentle enough for a newborn baby’s skin!) The funny thing is, my husband, who is a big 6’ 4” guy now uses baby wash on his face every day. He used it once when he ran out of his “manly scented” body wash! Now, when our pump bottle in the shower is getting low, he says: “we need more baby scrub!”
Try this! (As always, with any new beauty product, test it out and discontinue use if you have any irritation.)
