Did you know that you can stay fresh and beautiful the natural way with ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda! I have long been a fan of brushing my teeth with baking soda for a fresh from the dentist feel but what I didn’t know is that you can also exfoliate your skin, jumpstart your home pedicure, rid your hair of chemical buildup along with freshening your breath… all for under a dollar! ARM & HAMMER recently sent me a gift basket full of gifts and ideas to help with my every day and occasional beauty routine and I want to share some of the wonderful ideas with you!
Facial Scrub and Body Exfoliant
For smooth, radiant skin, give yourself a gentle facial and body scrub with ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda. Make a paste of 3 parts ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda to 1 part water. Rub in a gentle circular motion to exfoliate skin and remove dead skin cells. Rinse clean. Gentle enough for daily use! My skin has never felt better! Soft and Smooth doesn’t even begin to cover it. After the harsh winter we have had here in Georgia this was just what my skin needed it. Now it not only feels healthier it looks healthy! Ohhh, and don’t forget to try it on your elbows
Get rid of product buildup by sprinkling a small amount (quarter-size) of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda into your palm along with your favorite shampoo. Shampoo as usual and rinse thoroughly. The ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda helps remove the residue that styling products leave behind so your hair is cleaner and more manageable. With all of the products that we use on a daily basis it can dull your hair and make it feel heavy. Washing with ARM & HAMMER made mine shine! This is one of my favorite new tricks and I love the way my hair feels. Another little tip: I figured that since this worked so well for me, it might work on my dogs hair as well. Their fur has never smelled cleaner or felt softer!
Soothing Bath Soak
For a relaxing ending to a long day, add 1/2 cup of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda to your bath to neutralize acids on the skin and help wash away oil and perspiration. Your skin will feel silky smooth!
Home Pedicure Foot Soak
Start your home pedicure by dissolving 3 tablespoons of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda in a basin of warm water and soak feet. Gently scrub with a paste of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda. Talk about ridding those tootsies of rough patches! Your feet will love you for this one!
For gleaming smiles, brush teeth with ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda. . Just sprinkle baking soda into your palm, dip a damp toothbrush into it, and brush*. For a refreshing mouthwash, use 1 teaspoon baking soda in ½ glass of water. Swish the solution through your teeth and rinse.
*ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda does not contain the anti-cavity ingredient fluoride. Use it where water is fluorinated or when non-fluoride toothpaste is desired for adult use or as directed by your dentist of physician.
Soften skin with a paste of 3 parts ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda to 1 part water. Forget the harsh soaps and gently scrub away ground-in dirt and neutralize odors on hands with 3 parts ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda to your liquid hand soap. Then rinse clean. LOVE it! My hands feel great and are now so soft and smooth.
Clean Brushes and Combs
For lustrous hair with more shine, keep brushes and combs clean with ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda. Remove natural oil build-up and hair product residue by soaking combs and brushes in a solution of 1 teaspoon of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda in a small basin of warm water. Rinse and allow to dry.
Dust ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda under arms as needed to feel fresh all day. The magic of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda actually absorbs odors instead of just covering them up.
