Growing up in a household filled with women is life-changing and especially more so when there are plenty of beauty hacks that travel down generations. Homemade recipes added to your beauty regime become legendary. The kitchen turns into a treasure trove that can help you achieve results that big cosmetic companies aim for, nearly bankrupting you with their astronomical prices.
We are aware of how eggs are good for hair, milk is good for the face and laung for healthy gums but did you know that baking soda is a boon to our constant hunger for beauty hacks? Well, I am about to reveal three great benefits of baking soda!
Are you a woman who loves to experiment with various shades and colours of lipsticks? But often finds herself retracting from using them because they may make your teeth look yellow? Or you could be a man who smokes round the clock and unfortunately has become a victim of yellow teeth, then frets not you are in for luck. If a spoonful of baking soda is mixed with coconut oil and a mashed strawberry, it can help whiten your teeth considerably. You have to apply this paste on your teeth and leave it on for as long as you can. Rinse it and viola! Your teeth are healthier, looking!
It is the jewel to your crown. Beautiful hair is that coveted look, everyone salivates for, I know I do, but it was only recently when I discovered that my fantasy had a chance of wearing the gloves of reality. Many use this everyday miracle as a replacement to their shampoo while others have often used it as a dry shampoo. All you need to do is add a dash of it to your scalp. It absorbs that yucky oil off it! Oh and also, it can add volume to your hair but only if you use two teaspoons of it to a pinch of shampoo.
We all love to Netflix and chill, especially in the day and age of constant stress. I mean, it is a stress buster! But what do you do, when something that gives you pleasure leaves ugly dark circles under those tired eyes? You obviously scream in horror! Instagram filters, sadly, do not exist in the 3D world we live in. However, baking soda can help you get rid of it if you mix a tablespoon of it in green tea. Don’t worry; you’re not supposed to drink it. Just dip cotton pads in it and spread them over your exhausted eyes. Leave it on for ten minutes, and you’ll soon look fresh enough to conquer the world!
