Hello, Flawless: DIY Microdermabrasion to Pamper Without the Price Tag

Posted Monday January 7, 2013 9:17 AM GMT

We're totally on this new year's resolution bandwagon—and currently, we're resolving to rid ourselves of anything that may come in the way of radiant skin. Hello, microdermabrasion.

While the thought of awakening our kissers with a fresh new feel sounds like music to our ears, we know that sloughing away those dead cells at a swanky spa will result in a less-than-pretty price tag. With the holiday season having wrapped up just days ago, it's safe to say that for many of us, our beauty budgets are feeling the pinch.

No worries, ladies, you can still put your best face forward this season ... without breaking the bank. That's right, you can diminish the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation as well as help kick fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars to the curb—sans the usual cash-guzzling, in-office procedure.

If you're looking to renew for the new year, try out our easy at-home version below!

What you’ll need:
- 3 tablespoons backing soda
- 1 tablespoon water
- Small mixing bowl

How to:
- Combine ingredients together with a whisk.
- Apply to face in a circular motion.
- Let the mixture sit on your face for five minutes.
- Rinse off with warm water.
