A couple of week ago I shared about no longer using shampoo, but washing my hair with baking soda and vinegar instead.
Well, we ran out of Aveeno face scrub around that time, and I've been debating about whether to replace it or not ever since. I was really questioning the necessity of special face cleaners. Then one day this week as I was washing my hair with baking soda, I remembered I thought about its abrasive quality. I already use it for scrubbing the sink, pots and pans, and even the bathtub.
I thought I'd try it on my face, not rubbing too hard or too long of course. The results were great! My skin felt so smooth and fresh. I looked it up to find it's a common practice. I did see a couple of people saying it burned if you have an open sore, but I think that would be true for just about anything!
I'm not sure it's best to use any kind of scrub on your face everyday, even though I do it, and I'm sure you should rub very gently, but I can find nothing, on line at least, that gives reason not to do it! This will save money and unnecessary packaging waste!
Scratch face scrub off my list! It's getting shorter by the week!
