Trying to achieve beauty on a budget? Check out these four creative uses for baking soda:
#1: Use Baking Soda as an Exfoliant:
Eww! The thought of putting baking soda all over my face scared me at first, but this beauty hack actually feels great on your skin.
Mix one-half teaspoon baking soda with your favorite facial cleanser. This will give you extra exfoliating power — there’s no need to buy a separate scrub! If you have dry skin, follow up with moisturizer.
#2: Use Baking Soda as a Clarifying Shampoo:
Mix two teaspoons baking soda with a cup of warm water. Use it as a final rinse after your normal shampooing.
#3: Use Baking Soda as a Teeth Whitener:
Just sprinkle some baking soda on a damp toothbrush and brush as normal. Add a drop of mint or cinnamon flavoring to make it tolerable, because plain baking soda has a “bleech” taste.
#4: Use Baking Soda as a Foot Powder:
Sprinkle baking soda into your gym shoes or ballet flats for sweat-free feet.
