Tip #1. Pearly White Teeth

You’ve probably already seen that baking soda is a great ingredient that lends itself to whitening properties in toothpaste.

Glowing skin is the perfect party accessory. Aestheticians across the board all agree that exfoliation and moisturizing is the key to getting perfect skin. When you exfoliate, you slough away the dead skin cells that can make your face appear dull. So here’s our tip! Use just about a teaspoon of baking soda in your normal face wash about once a week to achieve beautifully glowing skin! It’s texture makes it the perfect gentle exfoliator for your skin. Be sure to moisturize directly afterwards and you’ll be radiant and fresh at your next party. Get ready for compliments!

We learned this trick for shinier-than-you-ever-thought-possible hair from a family friend; and since trying it out, we’ve never looked back! Just add a teaspoon to the shampoo in your palm in the shower, and cleanse hair and rinse as your normally would. The baking soda gently cleanses your locks of any and all possible build up - you’ll feel the difference immediately! Once you blow dry and style your hair, you’ll be amazed at all that mega-watt shine!Now that you’ve got your party-ready beauty regime down to a science with just one hard-working household product; what on earth are you going to wear?!!
