Updated on January 5, 2016

Although baking soda is mainly used in the kitchen, baking soda can also be used as an inexpensive beauty product. There are tons of different ways you can use baking soda in your daily activities. Here are some of the ways in which you can apply baking soda.

Facial Mask for Dry and Sensitive Skin

Take a tablespoon of baking soda and add in water with the same amount. Mix the mixture and apply it all over your face while avoiding your eye area. Leave it for 15 minutes and then rinse off with water.

Doing this may also be effective in removing your stubborn blackhead.

Remove Dead Skin Under Your Feet

While you are in the shower, take some baking soda and mix it with water. After that, rub the mixture on your feet to remove dead skin. Wash it off with water and your feet will feel smooth.

Teeth Whitening

To make a teeth whitening solution, all you need is baking soda and hydrogen peroxide or lemon/lime. Add in 1 tablespoon of baking into the hydrogen peroxide, lemon or lime. Stir the mixture until the bubble is gone. Dip your toothbrush into the solution and brush your teeth. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then rinse it off. After you finish this step, brush your teeth again with your normal toothpaste.

Warning: Only do this once a week or your teeth may become sensitive. If you are not satisfied with the result, you may leave the solution on your teeth for 10 minutes BUT not more than that.

Place a little bit of baking soda and add that with your normal shampoo and then shampooed your hair like normal. This helps make your shampoo works as it’s supposed to do.

Mix baking soda and a little bit of water to make it into a paste. Rub the mixture on your armpits or underarms. This acts as a natural deodorant.
