I don't understand the DIY-Hype around baking soda. It has a ph level which is unacceptable for skin and hair. If you use it as a shampoo, it dries out your hair and scalp. If used for exfoliating, it harms your skin barrier, leading to either damaged skin or more oil production over time. I skip.

awesome foot powder for sweaty feet!
also awesome to add to toothpaste for a little more grittiness to get your mouth extra clean.

i would strongly advise against putting any amount of baking soda on your face though, the pH is really not meant for your skin! be careful out there! and try my magic foot powder! :p

I love using Baking Soda as an exfoliator, both for face and body
A little trick I discovered and would love to hear if anyone else has as well:
The Fridge 'n Freezer baking soda is more granular and I find it exfoliates better.
The regular baking soda is a softer consistency.
I have tried both and prefer the fridge and freezer for exfoliation. Let me know if you try this …

With a pH of 9, baking soda is anything but gentle on skin. Just because it's DIY does not make it gentler or more natural, or free of chemicals. Baking soda is "sodium bicarbonate" which is, like literally all things in worldly existence, a chemical. For reference, the pH of skin and hair products should be somewhere around 5.5 or less to have best results and avoid irritation …Read more

YAASSS BEAUTY ON A BUDGET

I was using St. Ive's Apricot Scrub in my teens to exfoliate which was fine for greasy skin. Now that I'm in my 20s my skin has normalized and needs a gentler product. Plus I read online St Ive's damages the skin as the walnut shells cause tiny tears and burst blood vessels. Baking soda has been the perfect replacement. It removes dead skin …

For 6 months, I've stopped all commercial shampoo & conditioners. Dilute 1 tablespoon baking soda. Pour over scalp and massage thoroughly. Rinse off completely and followed by conditioning with applied cider vinegar.

I'll do the review for that on the other page. I was skeptical at first when I tried to search for alternative natural products for hair. I have long hair …

Okay, this might sound pretty weird to some of you but I wanted to get this out there.

I am really weird about my feet, not in a bad way but I am very meticulous and picky about my pedicures, etc. I am also diabetic, so I am pretty extreme when it comes to my hygiene and health, especially my feet and hands. As some of you have read in my other reviews, I work in O&G, usually …

When it comes to skin care baking soda is a fantastic natural ingredient that can be used to soften skin (add to bath water and take a relaxing soak), exfoliate (add to gentle cleanser or lotion and massage on skin then rinse to remove), or remove stains from teeth when used as toothpaste, not to mention so many more uses (just google it). Use a light hand when exfoliating, it is a fine powder …Read more

I used Baking Soda as a gentle exfoliator for a while, and it did a decent job for cheap. BUT I STOPPED AND HERE'S WHY:
I've read in multiple places online that baking soda disrupts the skin's natural barrier function. It's too alkaline and even more so when mixed with water. A damaged acid mantle (barrier) can lead to all sorts of skin issues and acne. Not trying to put …

I am a simple skincare girl - basically I only use Ivory Soap, Ponds Cold Cream to remove my mascara and a moisturizer on my face... and usually my skin is OK. But for the last 2 years I have been getting clogged pours (sebaceous filaments) and blackheads around my mouth and on my chin. When I try to extract them (Bad, I know!) if I don't get the little suckers well then they flare up and I …Read more
