Baking Soda For Beauty?
Baking Soda is an amazing thing! It has over one hundred uses that varies from cooking to cleaning. It also act as an insect repeller, deodorizer, anti-fungal, antacid, and so much more. But did you ever know that it has a lot of benefits in term of beauty? I didn't know that for a while. I'm always up to trying home made remedies or treatments to replace chemical beauty products.
Three Baking Soda Beauty Uses:
1. A Teeth Whitener:
Baking soda is great for whitening your teeth. It gives an amazing results for whiter and brighter teeth. I have two recipes 1) Add some baking soda into the balm of your hand , then dab a disposabel toothbrush into the baking soda. Brush your teeth with it and rinse. 2) in a small bowl smash couple of strawberries, then add a 1/4 spoon of baking soda into the bowl. Mix well, then add that paste into the tooth brush, brush your teeth and leave for 5 minutes, then rinse.
2. As a Facial Scrub:
Baking soda is a great cleanser. It removes dead skin cells and exfoliate your skin. Using it as a scrub will help increase blood flow, reduces wrinkles, and it will give you a baby soft radiant skin. I have 2 recipes 1) Add 3 table spoons of baking soda, 1 table spoon of water, and 1 table spoon of ground oatmeal. Mix well to create the past. Apply to your face, then rinse. Use twice weekly. Follow with moisturizer. 2) Add 2 table spoons of baking soda, and 1 table spoon of warm water. Mix well and apply to face, then rinse. This recipe will also help in treating acne. Use twice weekly and follow with moisturizer.
3. For Luscious Thicker longer Hair:
Baking Soda promotes thicker, longer, stronger and gorgeous hair. What it actually does is prevent hair loss. Which directs the body nutrients to growing thicker longer hair instead of just directing the nutrients to rebuilding hair follicles. It also cleans your hair from the build up of hair products. To use it for longer hair add 2 teaspoons of baking soda into 1/4 cup of your conditioner. Use it as usual after you shampoo your hair, then rinse. You can use it 3 times a week. To use it to clear the build up and residues from hair products, add a little bit of baking soda to your shampoo, shampoo as usual, then rinse.
