Baking Soda is not only used to bake lovely and sweet things, it is also great when it comes to getting perfect and beautiful skin, find out how…
1. FACIAL WASH
When you’re thinking of ways to use baking soda for your skin try it out as a facial wash, combine 2 teaspoons of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of warm water and stir to create a paste. Splash your face with water, grab some of the mixture and gently wash your face in a circular motion. Then, rinse your face with warm water and pat your face dry. It is also a great exfoliator for the skin.
2. FOOT SOAK
Treat your feet to a relaxing soak of baking soda and warm water. Using baking soda as a foot soak will not only get your little piggies squeaky clean but it’ll also soften your skin. Mix ½ cup of baking soda for every gallon of water in your basin, soak for about a half hour and follow it up with a thick cream for smooth skin!
3. SUNBURN RELIEF

Baking soda is a fabulous nail cleaner, it gives your nails and cuticles a good cleaning or you can use it to treat nail fungus. To clean your nails, pour some baking soda on your nail brush and scrub. To treat nail fungus, mix two parts baking soda and one part water to make a paste to apply all around the infected nail. Let it sit for 10 minutes and repeat up to two times a day until the fungus is gone.
