Baking soda: we all have it sitting in our kitchen cabinets at this very moment. Baking soda is so versatile and has so many amazing beauty uses. It can be a brightener, exfoliator, acne treatment, and anti-bacterial agent. Here are a few ways you can start using baking soda in your beauty regimen! Who knew you could find beauty products in the produce aisle? J
- Teeth whitening: Baking soda is a natural bleach for your teeth. In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with a bit of water and salt and use it instead of toothpaste.
- Hair cleansing: Shampoos and conditioners leave a lot of build-up on your hair, and baking soda can help clean that buildup off. Mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a cup of water and apple cider vinegar and pour this mixture over your hair. Then rinse it out and feel how smooth your hair is!
- Mini manicure: dip a soft, wet toothbrush into baking soda and use it to scrub the dead skin around your nails.
- Skin exfoliation: mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 1 tablespoon of water or apple cider vinegar and gently scrub your skin. This will help tighten your pores and prevents acne because it is a natural antibacterial.
