We all want to be beautiful and attractive so we spend a lot of time and money on achieving that goal. We usually buy expensive products instead of using some natural ingredients and remedies which are highly beneficial for our hair, teeth and skin.
Baking soda is especially used in the kitchen but it is also widely used as a beauty product.
It is easily found in every store and supermarket and is not expensive at all.
Below you can read about several useful tips on how to use baking soda to maintain your beauty.
1) For exfoliation:
You can use it to exfoliate the skin. It is recommended by many beauty experts because with this easy treatment the dead skin cells and dirt which is accumulated every day are removed.
Recipe: Mix some water with baking soda and then apply the mixture with gentle circular movements on your skin. After the treatment, rinse the skin well with warm water and apply moisturizer.
2) Good for your hair:
If you want your hair to be clean and healthy, especially if you have greasy hair, try this treatment. You just need to mix a spoonful of baking soda with your shampoo. Apply it on the hair with circular movements and wait for 10 minutes. After washing, your hair will be completely clean and fresh.
3) Moisturize the elbows and knees:
It is used as a moisturizer for knees and elbows, as the skin is often very rough on those body parts.
Make a mixture with some baking soda and your moisturizer and massage the affected areas until the skin becomes soft again.
4) For soft hands:
If you want to have soft hands and shiny nails, prepare a paste with water and baking soda. Then apply it on the hands and nails and they will become gentle and clean again.
5) To whiten teeth:
If your teeth are not white then use baking soda and the problem will be gone. Mix water, baking soda and a pinch of salt. Brush your teeth with this mixture and the ugly stains will disappear. If you have problems with bad breath, gargle with water and baking soda.
6) For better scent:
If you want to neutralize unpleasant odors as body odor for example, then you can use baking soda as well.
You can apply it to your underarms or you can add half a cup in the bath. It is also beneficial against dark skin under the arms which occurs due to using deodorants and perspirants.
7) To fight acne:
Baking soda can be also used against acne, pimples and blackheads. Mix some baking soda with lemon juice and apply the mixture on the affected area. But this treatment should be applied only at night because the lemon when exposed to sun rays can damage your skin.
8) For tired feet:
After a long stressful day, baking soda can help in relaxing your feet. It also removes the dead skin cells on your feet. Just mix 3 tablespoons of baking soda and a glass of water. Then soak your feet in this calming mixture for 10 minutes and feel the magical results.
