Easy Exfoliant

While I don't find most makeup books enlightening, I still manage to learn something interesting. Courtesy of Jemma Kidd Makeup Masterclass:

Baking soda, mixed with water, honey, cleanser, or other ingredients, makes a great exfoliating scrub. 

When I go on a trip, I pour some baking soda into a bottle. Since it's dry there are no worries that it could leak all over my luggage. 

Baking soda itself it not irritating, so it is ideal for sensitive skin types. Many love it for their acne-prone skin, using it as a mask as well as a scrub. It gently buffs without ripping skin off.

Hydrochloric acid works well too and much quicker.

Um, I don't think something used to pickle steel is best for sensitive skin . . .
