In keeping with head to toe exfoliation, we must discuss exfoliating our faces. Look no further than to your own pantry. Arm & Hammer Baking Soda is a wonderful, inexpensive, & gentle scrub. A lot of expensive facial exfoliators out on the market contain sodium bicarbonate read: baking soda. Let’s cut out the middle man shall we? I’m all for a good splurge, but I like to save where I can and this couldn’t be easier. Simply shake a small amount into your wet hands and apply to your freshly washed face in circular motions. 3x weekly. I love to do it in the AM, my makeup goes on so much smoother. Stay beautiful!

*Bonus tip* You can shake a little baking soda into your shampoo once a week to remove product build up. The baking soda acts as a mild abrasive, so it gives you more bang for your buck. Love it.

Shaving is an exfoliation in and of itself, and especially so when doing it daily.
