Baking soda - a natural beauty ingredient

Baking soda is normally used for cooking but it can also be a great natural beauty ingredient, according to the Feelgood style website.

“Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, which helps to regulate pH, and that makes it great for beauty recipes,” says the website.

Apparently you can create a great body scrub and facial by creating a paste with three parts baking soda to one part water.

It can also be used to make toothpaste, according to the website, and a mouthwash can be created with four ounces of water and a teaspoon of baking soda.

Baking soda can also be used along with your favourite natural shampoo to help remove residue from styling products.

Then it’s great as a hand cleanser – again, simply make a paste of one part water to three parts baking soda.

The website also suggests you can use baking soda as a deodorant by dusting it under your arms!
