1.  USE IT AS A DRY SHAMPOO

No need to go out and buy dry shampoo when you can use baking soda to do the job! Just sprinkle baking soda on your roots and then tousle your hair. The baking soda will absorb the oils in your locks and even add a little extra volume to your tresses!

2.  MAKE YOUR HAIR SHINIER

Baking soda clarifies your hair and there’s no better time to give your hair a clarifying wash than in the summer when your strands are exposed to heat, probably salt, pollutants plus all the normal oils and products you apply. Remove the buildup on our hair to make it shinier with a baking soda rinse! Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 1 cup of warm water in a cup. Pour the rinse over wet hair, making sure to get it on all of your hair. Rinse with warm water and then wash hair with your regular shampoo.

3.  CLARIFY YOUR FACE

Clarify Your Face
Summer has a way of sneaking up on our skin, clogging our pores! To help keep breakouts in check, make a baking soda beauty mask! Mix baking soda with a few drops of water to make a paste and then apply to your face, letting sit for 10 minutes. The mask purifies your face by drawing impurities out of your pores and exfoliates, too. If you want to feel like you are at a spa, apply the mask with a soft contour brush!

4.  FIX SELF TANNER STREAKS

I love that you can fix self tanner mistakes with baking soda! Exfoliate streaky self tanner with a mixture of baking soda and water applied with a loofa. Just rub the mixture on and then rinse.

5.  NATURALLY WHITEN YOUR TEETH

Naturally Whiten Your Teeth
Summer is the time to really let your smile glow! Naturally whiten your teeth with baking soda. Mix a few tablespoons of baking soda with enough water to make a paste. Dip your toothbrush in your mixture and then apply to teeth. Leave on for a minute and then rinse well. Your teeth should look whiter since baking soda mixed with water breaks down stain-causing molecules on the teeth!

6.  MAKE A DIY DEODORANT

This summer, ditch the chemical laden commercial deodorants and make your own. In a small bowl mix 1/4 cup of baking soda with about 10 drops of your favorite essential oil. Did you know that some essential oils like lavender, tea tree and rosemary have natural anti-bacterial properties? These are good ones to use. Mix together, place in a small jar and rub on your arm pits daily for fresh smelling under arms.

7.  ALKALIZE YOUR BODY

Alkalize Your Body
Many people swear by the health and beautifying properties of keeping their bodies pH neutral. You can mix 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda with 8 ounces of water and drink daily to naturally help your body maintain a neutral pH. (Note:  If you have high blood pressure, do not use this method as the sodium in baking soda – sodium bicarbonate can raise your blood pressure).

8.  SOFTEN YOUR SKIN

Baking soda is surprisingly nice for detoxifying your body after a long day in the sun! Throw 1/2 cup of baking soda in your bath and soak for at least 15 minutes. Be sure to rinse your body afterwards!
