13 Baking-Soda Beauty Tips!

So if you been following me for a while now you know how much I LOVE beauty home remedies and it shouldn't come as a surprised that one of my ultimate favorite and very inexpensive product I used a lot is without a doubt "Baking Soda"

Ok now my "beauty routine" has always been pretty minimal, and baking soda has played a big part of it. How can my favorite multi-purpose (beauty) enhance your grooming routines? Read on and find out how I implemented Baking Soda in my personal beauty routine.




HAIR

Remove buildup. (Click Here) to see my post on how-to

Dry shampoo. No time for a shampoo? Baking soda can be used as a dry shampoo when your hair is oily. Sprinkle some on your hair, comb through then quickly fluff your hair with a blow dryer.

Chlorine-damaged tresses. Mix 1/2 teaspoon on baking soda with 1 pint warm water.


SKIN

Facial Exfoliant. In the palm of your hand, mix some baking soda with your facial cleanser to make a gentle exfoliant. Use circular motions to apply gently then rinse as usual for very soft skin.

Rough skin. This also works for the rough skin on elbows and feet. Make a thick paste with baking soda and water (about 3 parts baking soda to one part water) and scrub away.

Shaving. A solution of 1 tablespoon baking soda in a cup of water works as a pre-shave product of aftershave rinse for men with sensitive skin.


MOUTH

Tooth polish and whitener. (CLICK HERE) to see my post on how to get whiter smile using baking soda

Toothbrush. Soak your tooth brush in a mixture of water and baking soda and let it soak overnight.


NAILS

Soft cuticles. Scrubbing your nails or toenails with a nailbrush (or old toothbrush) dipped in baking soda will soften and gently exfoliate cuticles.




So go on and get your baking soda and try to implemented in your beauty routine. "TRUST ME" you won't regret it.


Till next time and don't forget to....

ALWAYS P!NK POSITIVE & P!NK BEAUTIFUL
