Beauty Uses For Baking Soda

Beauty Uses For Baking Soda

Hand Wash
Sometimes antibacterial soap just can’t cut through a greasy mess (think: that time you used way too much coconut oil). Baking soda can actually cut through the oil slick to thoroughly clean skin. Pour a little bit of the powder into your hand and mix with water to remedy oily palms.

Dry Shampoo
When you’ve used your dry shampoo to the last pump, turn to baking soda for a quick DIY fix. Sprinkle the powder close to the roots and massage into the scalp to dry up excess oil. For dark hair, you can even add a spoonful of cocoa powder to avoid the pure white cast.

Natural Deodorant
If you’re looking for a natural deodorant without the threat of aluminum, you can turn to your kitchen cupboard. You can use baking soda mixed with water to create an odor-repelling paste. There are also more complex recipes that add essential oils, cornstarch, and arrowroot to the mix to create a DIY stick.

Teeth Whitener
Stir together a paste of baking soda and water. The natural exfoliant will help lift surface stains from coffee, red wine, and smoking. To really boost the efficiency of this treatment, you can mix the powder with hydrogen peroxide. While this DIY mix will immediately brighten tarnished teeth, baking soda can’t whiten permanently like an in-office bleaching treatment.

Face Scrub
The abrasive particles of sodium bicarbonate make it an easy and natural skin exfoliant. You can sprinkle the mix into your favorite gentle face wash for an added scrubbing effect. You can also make a paste of three parts baking soda and one part water.

Nail Whitener
An addiction to colorful nail polish shades can lead to yellowing tips and discolored cuticles. To whiten your nails, use a concoction of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Apply the salve with an old toothbrush and let sit for three to five minutes before rinsing.

Self-Tanner Remover
Got streaks? One wrong move and self-tanner can turn into a streaky, orange mess. You can easily fix visible tanning lines with baking soda. Apply a mix of baking soda and lemon juice to the area that’s uneven to scrub away the mistake.
