~ Exfoliate or Make a Mask ~

Starting with clean skin, steam your face by putting a hot washcloth on your face.  When the washcloth cools off, repeat the process two more times. By doing this you are opening your pores and you are now ready to exfoliate or you can keep it on as a mask for the next 10 minutes.  Which ever one you pick, when you start, apply using a gentle circular motion.

Exfoliating Baking Soda Face Mask Recipe:
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons of water
Gently rinse away with warm water. Take the same washcloth and put it under cool water and place it on your face to close your pores. Keep the wash cloth on your face until it no longer feels cold.  Repeat the this step one more time. Let your face air dry. Now you are ready for your eye cream and your night cream. 

By doing this, you will remove your excess oil and your dull dead skin cells are buffed away by the microdermabrasion-sized particles of baking soda, getting rid of clogged pores that can lead to blackheads. When done twice a week regularly, this will aid in ridding the skin of blackheads and it will clear up your skin.

P.S. You can do this even if you have sensitive skin :)
