Beauty hack baking powder – the miracle powder from the baking shelf
Baking Soda – Two words, so many uses. I know my grandma's tip that you can not only bake with baking powder, but also use it to clean various corners of the household. This stuff works wonders for cleaning the oven or neutralizing odors in the refrigerator. But baking soda is not only great in the household, but also a miracle weapon in cosmetics. Especially if you like to make your own cosmetic products, baking powder could be a real new discovery.
Even the stars swear by the “magic powder”. Actress Emma Stone recently revealed in an interview that she owes her super beautiful and clear complexion to, among other things, regular peeling with baking soda. It's ready in no time: simply mix baking soda with lukewarm water in a two-thirds/one-third ratio, apply the mixture to your face in circular movements and then rinse thoroughly. This works wonders for combination skin that is prone to impurities. By the way, it also works well as a body peeling.
But baking soda is not only fantastic for the skin, the hair also enjoys this treatment, especially if you have an oily scalp. The baking soda absorbs the excess sebum and also removes the residue from styling products. Baking soda with lukewarm water is also used here. Massage onto the scalp and hair, leave on for five minutes, rinse, done.
Radiantly white teeth are a must today. A cheap method for whitening your teeth is – you probably already guessed it – baking soda. The abrasive particles roughen the tooth enamel and thus temporarily remove discoloration caused by coffee, nicotine or red wine. But be careful, you should not use this method permanently as it is too aggressive for the teeth. By the way, whitening also works great for discoloration on your fingernails, for example if you paint them frequently. A quick finger bath in baking soda mixed with lukewarm water helps.
And the very best thing about baking powder is that it only costs pennies. So, off to the baking shelf with you.
