Baking Soda to the Rescue: Top Beauty Uses for Hair, Skin, and Teeth

13 Mar


I thought I had heard about most of the uses for baking soda, but a recent episode of the Dr. Oz Show covered some new and creative ways to take advantage of this household staple.


DIY Dry Shampoo Powder

If you regularly use dry shampoo, the costs can add up. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to get clean hair on the fly.

Just sprinkle a small amount of baking soda on your roots and work into your hair. I leave it on for a while to absorb any oil before combing or brushing it through.

Hair Volumizer

Let’s face, we all use a lot of products on our hair from conditioner to mousse to hair spray. Over time, these products leave buildup which weighs your hair down.

To add volume to your hair, add a quarter size of baking soda to a handful of your shampoo. Baking soda helps to remove impurities in the hair, which leaves it lighter and bouncier with more volume.


Acne Healer

Some people find that the chemicals in some acne treatments are too harsh for the skin. For a gentle but effective approach, mix up a mask of baking soda and honey to help clear up any spots on your skin. Apply the mixture for around 15 minutes to your face, then rinse.

With the holiday season heating up, you may want to have a backup plan for looking good.

The limited edition Spotlight set from Cake Beauty is the ultimate recipe for making your blow dry last with the Satin Sugar Dry Shampoo & Body Powder and the Satin Sugar Fuss-Free Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray.  The set also contains Cake Beauty’s cult-favourite Velveteen Hand Creme as a bonus.

Use the award-winning Satin Sugar powder to refresh you hair if you want to add a bit of color, either blond or light to medium brown. Sprinkle the powder into your hair to extend time between washes or onto your body. The double-duty formula is talc-free and infused with calendula and chamomile to smooth and soften.

Satin Sugar Fuss-Free Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray

Use the Satin Sugar dry shampoo spray to add volume to your hair whatever your hair type is. The spray cleanses your hair and infuses it with the scent of lemon and vanilla. The formula contains Zeolite to absorb excess oil without leaving a residue, even in dark hair, and silica which expands strands for added fullness and bounce.
