Beauty Tip: Run to the Cupboard

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, diet blogger, and fashion blogger talks beauty tips!

Ok, so the economy sucks ass.

And let’s face it: beauty products aren’t a top priority.

So next time you’re strapped for cash & can’t shell out a hundo on beauty products, just simply reach in the cupboard!


Because baking soda will rock your world:

+ Bombshell hair:

Removes buildup: mix a tiny palm-full of the powder in your shampoo, conditioner, mousse, &/or hairspray to remove sickie buildup.

Dry shamps: sprinkle a dab on your hair and comb through it while using a blow dryer.

Combs/brushes: clean your brushes, peeps. You can do this by soaking brushes in warm water with a few tablespoons of baking soda.

+ Glowing skin:

Exfoliant: mix baking soda with your favorite facial cleanse ( I like this one ). It works as an amazing exfoliant. Yay!

Elbow skin: you know that old gross skin that everyone has on their elbows? LOL. Use this to get rid of it!

Shaving: you can use one tablespoon of baking soda with a cup of water a shaving ‘cream.’

+ Sexy nails:

Cuticles: scrub nails & toenails with a old toothbrush ( << or your boyfriend’s. JK- kinda. ). Just dip the toothbrush in baking soda with a bit of water & get scrubbin’.”

+ White teeth:

Pearly whites: the powder freshens breath & whitens/polishes teeth. Use baking soda & all natural toothpaste ( like this kind ) for double whitening!

Clean your tooth brush: soak it in a mixture of water + baking soda overnight.

News flash: just because it’s not a gazillion dollars, don’t mean it’s crap. Baking soda is cheap, easy, & effective!

  1. I never knew that you were supposed to wash your combs and brushes. And I thought baking soda was just for cooking and to make your refrigerator smell better. I’ll defiently be making my own shaving cream now. Thanks for this post!

  2. I love baking soda! These days I mostly use it as “shampoo”. I used to use it to wash my face, but have since switched to the oil cleansing method.

    I had no idea it was good for shaving! I will definitely have to try that out. Usually I just use hair conditioner.

  3. Baking soda is really magic for teeth ! I also use listerine with hydrogen peroxide before brushing my teeth… They shine bright like a diamond 😉

  4. This is the power of baking soda! I know baking soda gives good results on achieving pearly white teeth but I never knew that baking soda could also be used on hair, nails and skin. Truly, baking soda should never be ignored. I might include it on my beauty regimen!
