As we slowly try and revert to natural ways of living, new revelations of using natural products continue to emerge. Health and beauty seem favored by this new twist of events as most of the discoveries fit under the two categories. Today, I will reveal multiple exciting beauty uses of lemon and baking soda. If you store baking soda away from the lemon fruit, it is about time you reconsidered their “living positions”: these two form a magical duo!
- Bleach Teeth
You might have realized that despite regular brushing and oral hygiene, your teeth still accumulate a thin yellow layer on them. This might result from excess fluoride in your toothpaste, smoking or eating sugary foods. Do you need your teeth milk white? Pour a tablespoonful of baking soda into a cup and add some fresh [natural] lemon juice to cover it. After the bubbling ceases, use the mixture to brush your teeth.
- Free Hair Shampoo and Rinse
As you wash your hair, pour some little baking soda on your scalp and wash normally. It acts as an alternative to shampoo; only that it is cheaper and better. After washing, put some natural lemon juice in water and use it to rinse your hair. It gives it a shiny, darker appearance and also conditions it.
- Healthy Face Mask
When making a face mask, include a mixture of lemon and baking soda in the ingredients. The mixture is effective in that: first, lemons have microbial properties that cleanse your skin from any harmful organisms. Second, the resulting mixture is a strong alkaline and will balance the skin’s pH. As such, you have two benefits in a single treatment.
- Detox cum Carcinogenic Agent
I understand that the taste of lemon and baking soda is not a cup of coffee to most of you. However, would you prefer ingesting medication or undergoing costly chemotherapy treatment? We do it my way: mix two tablespoonfuls of natural lemon with a half of baking soda. Add a little water and drink the mixture at least once a week. The benefits are: you destroy about 12 types of cancer cells and detoxify your body! Consult your doctor before you try this at home.
Now that I have given you a few pointers, dedicate some time to research further on the uses of lemon and baking soda then post any interesting facts you come across.
