It's National Baking Soda Day

For all you scientific folk out there, It's National Bicarbonate of  Soda Day.  For all the others, that translates to National Baking Soda Day.

There's a ton of uses and purposes for baking soda.  Baking Soda can be used for baking and household purposes, but did you know that it can be used for beauty treatments?  Here are just a few simple and effective tips:

Hair Care

Get rid of product buildup by sprinkling a small, quarter-size amount of baking Soda into your palm along with your favorite shampoo. Shampoo as usual and rinse thoroughly. The Baking Soda helps remove the residue that styling products leave behind so hair is cleaner and more manageable.

Natural Deodorant

Dust Baking Soda under arms as needed to feel fresh all day. The magic Baking Soda actually absorbs odors instead of just covering them up.

Facial Glow

To use as a scrub in a facial, mix 3 parts baking sod with 1 part water. Consider enhancing the treatment by including 1 part ground oatmeal. Cleanse skin as usual, followed by the gentle scrub. Be careful to avoid the eye area. Rinse with warm water. It leaves skin feeling nourished and refreshed.

For what purposes do you use baking soda?
