How To Use The Beauty Benefits Of Baking Soda

Baking Soda Beauty Uses

Baking soda might be essential for delicious cookies but it also has some awesome beauty uses. It is an amazing beauty find for an affordable price. Here are a few beauty benefits of baking soda.

Whiten Your Teeth

Beauty benefits of baking soda include achieving pearly whites. Whitening your teeth with baking soda is way cheaper than dropping $50-$60 for whitening products. Sprinkle a little on top of your toothpaste and brush your teeth for 2 minutes. If your teeth are extremely stained it might not work, but it’s great as a touch up. It removes plaque buildup that causes yellowing around your gums, and your teeth will feel super smooth like you just came from the dentist!

Remove Hair Product Buildup

If you use sulfate free shampoos, they don’t remove products that contain silicones, oils, or butters. Apply about a teaspoon of baking soda to your shampoo and scrub your scalp. Follow up with a conditioner to keep your hair from drying out. Do this about twice a month. It’s also great for removing chlorine from your hair! Here are more tips for removing hair product buildup.

Exfoliating And Removing Self Tanner

Mix baking soda with some water and use on rough areas of skin like elbows or dry patches. You can also use a small amount of baking soda mixed with water on a washcloth to gently fade away self tanning splotches, or remove it entirely when using it with an exfoliating washcloth.

Baking Soda Beauty Uses To Get Rid Of Blackheads

Blackheads are the most stubborn things to get rid of. But you can try mixing 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 1/4 cup of milk and scrubbing this onto blackheads. You can let it sit some too as a mask. Milk is a great exfoliant because it has lactic acid in it, which helps to break down dead skin. The fat in it helps with hydrating skin to prevent overactive oil glands, which lead to more blackheads.

Beauty Benefits Of Baking Soda For Feet And Nails

Cracked dry heels are most common during the summer when we go barefoot and wear sandals and flip flops. Removing dead skin and cracks can be hard because the skin on our heels is so tough. Try soaking your feet in hot water containing baking soda, then use a pumice stone to remove dead skin and callouses. Follow up with lotion or a thick foot cream or body butter and put on a pair of socks overnight and you will wake up with brand new feet! You can also soak your hands in baking soda mixed in hot water to soften cuticles, then use a wooden nail stick, or metal cuticle pusher to push back cuticles off the nail bed. Then use cuticle trimmers or nail clippers to remove only access skin that is raised above the nail surface. Avoid totally cutting off your cuticles, you do need them to protect your nails! Only remove excess skin. You can also check out this homemade papaya foot bath to help exfoliate your feet as well.
