Your face wash doesn’t have to be some elaborate concoction. Simply mix together 2 teaspoons of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of warm water to form a paste. Rinse your face with water and rub the mixture in circular motions over your face to gently cleanse the skin.
The many uses for baking soda for skin care also include using it as an exfoliator. Some people find that plain baking soda on its own is grainy enough to be a gentle scrub.
You can also add a teaspoon to your cleanser or add a tablespoon each of baking soda and water along with 2 teaspoons of oat flour to get a deeper cleaning.
Give yourself a spa pedicure at home. Mix two to three tablespoons of baking soda with water for a soothing foot soak. Add your favorite essential oil (like lavender oil) and soak for 20 minutes. Then scrub your feet with a paste of baking soda and water to help exfoliate rough spots.
Detox baths can help our bodies to eliminate toxins and your skin will love the nourishing minerals from the ingredients! Be sure you try this in the evening because you’ll likely feel tired. You might even feel weak from this process, so make sure you stay hydrated! Add 1-2 cups of baking soda and 2 cups of Epsom salts while you draw your bath and sit in it for about 30 minutes.
Leaving nail polish on too long may leave your nails looking yellow. Get rid of stains by mixing baking soda and peroxide and scrubbing it on your nails.
Just mix water and baking soda to make a paste. Gently massage the mixture into your skin focusing on your T-zone. Let the paste soak for at least a minute and rinse to remove those pesky blackheads and any dirt on or in the skin.
