But I am surprised to learn that we can use it for cleaning our face! Baking soda effectively removes blackheads and dead skin cells and unclogs pores. Its fine particles do this hard work. And its antiseptic action prevents inflammation and redness of the skin. What you need to do is to mix baking soda with water to make a thick paste. Apply it on your face in a circular motion for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse with warm water and finish with cold water. Finally, rub your face with a moisturizer.
Such use of baking soda is welcome for skin prone to acne. The action is rooted in the drying of the face, so it is important then to apply appropriate cream.
However, there are a bunch of other wonderful applications that will allow you to create your personal cosmetic laboratory, including your own cheap Facial Exfoliator and also:
- no bags under the eyes! Again make a solution of baking soda and water, but this time let it be a little more diluted. Dip two cosmetic pads in the mixture and place them on your eyelids. Hold them for about 15-20 minutes. After about 2 hours you can repeat the procedure if you are not satisfied with the results;
- clean and tidy hair - for efficient washing hair add baking soda to your shampoo in a proportion of 1 to 4. Thus the "mane" will become softer, more elastic and simultaneously more susceptible to clearance. The effect comes from the fact that baking soda removes even the finest particles left from styling hair products.
And these are just small part of the possibile applcations of baking soda, but it is important to mention that it is inexpensive and environmentally friendly, even after it goes down the drain.
