Baking Soda {not for baking}

Happy Friday!
One of my favorite cleaning products is baking soda you can practically clean everything around your home with this little box.  But what about as a beauty product?  Baking soda is so versatile that serves as a great natural and safe product to put on our skin too!




5 ways to use baking soda as a beauty product:


Facial and Body Scrub
This is a great natural way to scrub your face and body.  Mix one part of water with three parts of baking soda and apply on your skin avoiding eye area.  Perfect for that glow we all like!

Teeth
Damp your toothbrush, deep it in baking soda and brush your teeth!  It's perfect to work on coffee stains once in a while.  I must confess it doesn't taste great but it's worth it. I would't do it daily though as it might be to abrasive on your teeth.

Deodorant
You can really apply it directly on your skin and replace your deodorant.  It naturally absorbs odors instead of covering them.

Hand cleaner
Mix three parts of baking soda and one part of water to create a paste and scrub your hands. You can add some essential oil for a nice scent. It will leave your hands soft as baby skin!

Bath soak
Add half cup of baking soda to your bath. It neutralizes acids on your skin and helps wash away oil.  Your skin will be silky smooth!
