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

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?

Of course, you can use it on your hands, elbows, and knees as well.
