Are you familiar with the advantages of baking soda? It is not only that is it much cheaper than other beauty products, but it contains no chemicals. Completely natural, it will do no harm to you or the environment. Here are 5 beauty secrets based on baking soda, with fantastic results!
An anti-dry mask and mask against acne
Do you have dry, flaky skin that requires a sustained and constant hydration, but you also have some pimples? This face mask is for you! Mix some baking soda with water until you get a paste. Apply it on your face and leave for 15 minutes. Rinse and enjoy the softness of your skin.
Emollient effect of sodium bicarbonate protects your skin from drying and also softens it. You can also apply this mask on particularly dry areas of your body.
Moreover, the antibacterial property of baking soda makes it effective to clean the skin and prevent pimples.
Warning: this trick is to apply only once a week because the baking soda can be aggressive to the skin by prolonged application.
Against brittle hair and dandruff!
If your hair is dull and lifeless and begins to lose its shine, mix some baking soda (a teaspoon) with your shampoo and wash normally. You can repeat this trick once a week.
Baking soda is used to completely eliminate the residues of chemicals. Moreover, it gives it a silky feel, gives the hair volume and can prevent or treat scalps prone to dandruff.
However, if your hair is colored, do not use baking soda because it removes the coloring effect.
To get a baby skin
Pour 2 tablespoons of baking soda in the bath water to make your skin softer. It is magic! You can also add a little vegetable oil (sweet almond, coconut …) to feed the skin. It is advisable to practice this treatment once a week.
For divinely soft feet
Pour 2 tablespoons of baking soda in a bowl of hot water and a few drops of an essential oil of your choice, and soak your feet for 30 minutes. You can apply this trick 2 times a week.
You only have to rub your heels after the bath to effectively remove dead skin and regain soft heels! Furthermore, this treatment can treat odors, especially when baking soda bath is combined with tea tree essential oil.
Home spa treatment
To relax, mix 2 cups baking soda with some water to get a thick paste and make two soaps (let it dry overnight). Pour on each 3 drops of essential oil of your choice. At the end of a long hard day, put these soaps on the shower floor.
While they dissolve under the shower flow, the essential oil will be released in the steam, creating the impression that you’re in a fragrant and relaxing spa!
