Baking soda is known for being a staple in the kitchen but it’s also one of the most useful and not to mention inexpensive ingredients around when it comes to DIY skin care.
Whiten teeth: Try making a natural solution by mixing a tablespoon of baking soda and five drops of hydrogen peroxide. Add water until you have a paste consistency. Apply this solution to you toothbrush and rub on your teeth. Allow the solution to sit on teeth for 5-10 minutes. Be sure to brush thoroughly afterwards. This solution works best when done once weekly.
Remove blackheads: Take a teaspoon of baking soda and water and rub on face. Let sit and then use an extractor or fingers, apply pressure to push the blackheads out of your skin.
Baking soda in bath water for softer skin: Before taking a bath, add a half cup of baking soda into your bathtub. It will make your skin softer and smoother.
Deodorant: Make a water and baking soda paste and apply it as a deodorant. Not only is this a natural way to keep the funk away, it also prevents those nasty sweat stains you get sometimes.
Facial exfoliate: Baking soda is great at removing dead skin cells. In order to create this all natural exfoliant just add water and rub on your face with gentle, circular strokes, then rinse with warm water. The best part about this is there are no chemicals.
