6 Fantastic Beauty Uses For Baking Soda

6 Fantastic Beauty Uses  For Baking Soda, By Barbie's Beauty Bits

Baking soda is a staple item that has been in my family for years.  Most of these Pantry to Pretty Bits, as I like to call them, I got from my mom and grandmother and have implemented them into my everyday beauty regimen. Today, I would like to share with you 6 fantastic beauty uses for Baking Soda!

The obvious one if to freshen your breath.  You see baking soda added to toothpastes, mouthwashes, etc. out in the market.  But, I'll make my version by mixing it with mouthwash or toothpaste.  Simply add about a teaspoon of it to half glass of water and add a splash of mouthwash or toothpaste to help with the taste.

Clarifying Shampoo:  Baking soda is great for removing excess residue from your hair from styling products.  I use this in place of a clarifying shampoo or Sunday Shampoo, where you only use it once a week or in some cases once a month.
How to: Add it to your shampoo and make sure to rinse well and condition as normal.

Dry Shampoo:  Trying to get a few extra days out of your hair without washing, this works wonders.  You want to sprinkle the baking soda near your scalp, where it is oiliest, and brush it through your hair, till the white dissipates.   If you have dark hair like myself, you’ll want to add some loose bronzer to it. Otherwise, it will dull your hair and give you a grayish hue.

Bath: No more need for Calgon to take you away, as you can add baking soda to your bath to soften and soothe your skin and worries of the day.

A Facial Scrub:  This is great for exfoliation and because there are not any harsh chemicals like some you may find from store bought brands, it is safe to use a few times a week.  Merely, combine some baking soda with some water, you want it to be a paste and you have your exfoliant.

Deodorant:  If you are in a pinch or worried about commercially-made deodorants, you can use baking soda as a deodorant.   How to? My grandmother would use a paintbrush and apply it to her underarms. But in this day and age, you can use a sponge or a blush brush to apply.

So there, you have it some more Pantry to Pretty Bits, getting gorgeous for less with at home products!
