Is it safe to use baking soda everyday as a facial wash or facial cleanser?

In brief: Not recommended

Baking soda is too abrasive and may dry out and irritate facial skin.
Use a gentle foaming non-soap cleanser for daily use. If you have acne or oily skin, a benzoyl peroxide cleanser may help. Scrubbing usually leaves the skin more vulnerable to irritation and redness.
