If your skin is dry and flaky, you need to moisturize it all the time. This face mask based on baking soda is going to help you. Mix a little bit of baking soda with some water and make a paste. Apply this paste onto your face just like any other normal mask and let it stay on for about an hour. after an hour, wash your face and you will see how soft and smooth your skin has become. The flakiness will be gone almost right away.
However, this mask can be applied to other body parts as well. Any body part that is dry, like your hands for example, especially during the winter months, can be treated with this mask. You just need to repeat the same procedure as the one described above.
If your hair has started looking dull, as if does not have life and luster, it could be the result of too much product buildup on the scalp or into the hair itself. However, this problem can be easily solved. Next time you wash your hair, add a little bit of baking soda into your shampoo, and then shampoo your hair like you regularly do. This combination acts as a clarifying shampoo; just it is a lot less harsh on your hair, as well as a lot cheaper.
You can use baking soda in the same way you use bath salts or bath bombs for making your skin softer. Just take half a cup of baking soda and add it into your bath water. this will soften your skin and in the same time, it will protect your private parts, as it is completely safe and natural ingredient.
If you make pedicure at home, you can use baking soda. Just take three tablespoons of baking soda and add some warm water to it. Then, add a few drops of some essential oil of your choice. Soak your feet into this mixture for half an hour to an hour. if you have some of those dry and rough spots on your feet, make a paste out of baking soda and water and rub it onto the rough areas to remove the dead skin.
If you are into the spa experiences, you can make yourself one t your own home and relax in no time flat. Just combine two cups of baking soda with water and make a nice, thick paste. Add ten to fifteen drips of some essential oil of your choice to the paste, and scoop the mixture into cupcake liners and leave them overnight in order to harden.
The following day, once you decide to have this spa experience, take the little disks out of the cupcake liners and put them on the shower floor. once they start dissolving into the shower, the essential oil is going to be released into the steam. This will provide you a really relaxing spa experience. This is a great way for you to relax after you have had a long, hard day.
