Cheap only in cost; it's a quality treatment! Make a lather in your hand of inexpensive hand or face soap, then add a teaspoon or so of cornmeal, work it into the lather and scrub your face lightly with it. Use washcloth to remove most of the cornmeal before rinsing thoroughly with warm water. Moisturize if necessary. Cornmeal makes a gentle but thorough scrub and it's all natural - no chemicals to worry about.
