You have got to try these baking soda beauty hacks! Not everything you use in your beauty routine needs to come from the health and beauty section of your favorite store. I know. I get sucked into that aisle often myself, sometimes too often. There are products you have around the house that will do wonders for your beauty like these baking soda beauty hacks.

Baking soda is also called sodium bicarbonate.  It is used in everything from baking to cleaning – and yes, also in your beauty routine. I keep a box of baking soda under the bathroom sink. It’s very versatile and very inexpensive.

It whitens your teeth

Just mix baking soda with hydrogen peroxide in a small bowl. Apply it to your teeth with your finger and let it sit for 60 seconds. Rinse.  Do not use this every day. It’s meant for an occasional brightening.

Remove product buildup from your hair.

After a time, shampoo, conditioner, and styling products can build up on your hair. Just mix a tablespoon of baking soda with the normal amount of shampoo you use and wash as normal. Then rinse. You’ll notice how soft your hair is. Be careful while doing this if you color your hair.

Soothe sunburn.

Add three tablespoons of baking soda to a cool bath to soothe sunburn.

Dry shampoo.

No time to wash your hair? Sprinkle baking soda at the roots of your hair and run your fingers through it. It also helps add volume to your hair.

Clean your cuticles.

Make a paste with baking soda and water and rub into your cuticles. This will help keep your cuticles smooth.

Remove chlorine from your hair.

Just add a tablespoon of baking soda to four cups of water and rinse.

Make a facial mask.

Mix baking soda, oatmeal, and water to make a paste and apply it as a facial mask to gently exfoliate your skin.

While I love a good sale at my local salon as much as the next woman, there are a number of natural alternatives that work as well. I try to splurge on my favorites and then add in natural beauty hacks in other areas. Have you seen how beneficial coconut oil can be in your beauty routine? For a truly pampering experience, try my salt scrub for feet. You won’t believe how much better your feet will look the next time you slip on your sandals. Of course, you can use it on your hands, elbows, and knees as well.

  1. I use baking soda on my kids when they get diaper rash. Sprinkle in the bath water, it works AMAZING! I also use it when I am having skin rashes too! 

  2. I didn’t know that it could help to remove chlorine. That’s good to know since we have our “week of water park vacation” coming up. It’s a family tradition, but we definitely smell from the chlorine.

  3. I love baking soda – it’s natural and can be used for so many things! I didn’t know you could use it in a facial mask – I’m going to try that today!

  4. Well, this is very cool! I had no idea about any of these uses except for teeth whitening. Thanks for sharing these!

  5. I had never heard of using it to clean your cuticles. May have to try it and teach it to my girls.
