Baking Soda

Who knew baking soda can be the source of many things we can use on our daily life =) This article came up just when I needed the most. I was cleaning out my kitchen cabinet when I found this baking soda I haven't used for quite some time. Luckily I haven't throw it away, I could use these DIY tips =) Found these amazing tips of "Seven Surprising Uses of Baking Soda" on good.is. Below are some of the tips.

  • Wash Your Face With It As a rule, we think that harsh scrubs and exfoliants do not belong on your face—not least of all because you need that top layer of skin to keep bad stuff out and moisture in. Most exfoliating scrubs also contain other sketchy ingredients—like plastic balls. If you’re hellbent on scrubbring, though, at least switch to baking soda. It works great on elbows and feet too, and combined with some raw honey, this DIY face wash isrefreshing and soothing—and anti-acne, too.

  • Soak Your Skin That's right, dissolve some into your bath for a soothing and skin-softening experience. The added bonus? You won't need soap—and sometimes that's a good thing.

  • Spot-Treat Acne Our favorite natural acne remedy is clay, like this green tea one we swear by. But in a bind, making a little paste from baking soda and water and applying it to an unwelcomed visitor will help dry it out. We don't recommend this for deep cysts, but for more surface afflictions, it works like a charm.
