While looking online for my latest diy beauty project, I came across some beauty tips and wanted to share. I also was surprised to learn how common baking soda was used as an active ingredient! Please feel free to share any others that I can add to my list. 😉
*Trouble removing your makeup? Give Vasaline a try, it will also moisturize your skin.
*Mix baking soda with lemon juice to act as an exfoliant for the face!
*Pimples? Mix baking soda w/water to help dry them out.
*For whiter teeth, use an equal amount of strawberries (mashed) with baking soda and put on teeth for 30 minutes before rinsing out. (Be careful, not to do often b/c the sugar can wear down enamel)
*Did you know coconut oil is not only great for your hair, but a go to moisturizer for the skin?
*Want to get rid of the appearance of dry cracked feet? Soak feet in 2 cups of hydrogen peroxide and 2 cups of hot water for 30 min. Dry feet then use a pomice to rid dead skin then apply lotion.
*For white healthy nails, once a week use 2 1/2 tablespoons of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide and leave on nails for about 3 min. and then rinse.
*Want to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles around the eyes? Mix a little Vitamin E with coconut oil!
*Adding an egg to your hair shampoo is known to help grow and promote stronger hair.
If you don’t clean your cosmetic brushes often, they can lead to face break outs. Here is a simple trick to cleaning them: Just use 1tsp. of baking soda and 1/2 cup of water and walah!
