5 Beauty Uses for Baking Soda

1.) Face scrub – mix half honey and half baking soda and gently massage on a wet face. Gently scrub away all the dead skin cells, impurities and dirt to reveal a younger looking skin.  This scrub is just as good as using the clarisonic. I promise!

2.)  Teeth polish– apply a small amount of baking soda on your toothbrush with some toothpaste.  Gently scrub away the stains and discoloration of your teeth.  You will have shiny, sparkling teeth in no time.  This beauty use for baking soda is perfect for those who drink a lot of red wine and coffee like me :)

3.) Body Scrub– place a teaspoon of baking soda on a damp face towel.  Gently massage onto the skin, scrubbing away at the elbows and heels.  Your skin will be baby soft, absorbing the lotion immediately.

4.) Foot Soak–  add 3 teaspoon of baking soda to a gallon of warm water.  Soak your tired feet for about 30 minutes. Your feet will be fresh and happy.
