We've all had days when we've woken up and found this ugly pimple, right in the middle of our face! Like one day our skin is all clear, smooth and glowing, and the very next morning, suddenly this pimple shows up from nowhere! And the next day has to be a special day, a wedding or a college party or a family get-together awaits your august presence but you can't show up with that eruption on your face, right? And this annoys the hell out of us!
We spend a bomb on buying the best cosmetic products and still suffer, how unfair is that? But guess what? I'm here for your rescue! Just another day, when I was all pissed off because, this "sudden pimple eruption" on my face, my mom told me some of the best, tried and tested solutions for a healthier and clearer skin!
You'd like to know them, too?
Read on, mate!
Don't worry! Just mix one tablespoon of baking soda with half tablespoon if crushed sugar and 2-3 drops of olive oil. Mix it well and apply it on the dry areas. It'll relieve you instantly.
Sunburns are really common during summers and we can't stay indoors all time, obviously! Just mix baking soda with chilled water and make a thick paste out of it. Use cotton or a soft cloth to apply it to affected area and you'll get rid of that sunburn soon.
So, pimples and blackheads are the worst. They appear out of nowhere and stay for days but, no more! Mix one table spoon of baking soda with some cold water, now apply it on the affected area.This will balance out the pH of the skin and in turn, say good bye to that pimple or blackhead that's been bugging you!
Never use fairness creams as a lot of them are carcinogenic (cancer causing) rather resort to baking soda. If you want your skin tone to become a shade lighter then go for baking soda. The bicarbonates present in it remove the dead cells from skin and therefore, help in getting a fairer skin tone,
We all perspire and especially during the summers, it gets worse. Even the best of deodorants and perfumes fail to block out that body odor and stickiness, but have you tried baking soda yet? Just clean your underarms with baking soda-water and get rid off that that smell and stickiness.
Rashes are pretty common during summers and they can occur anywhere on your body and anytime. Also, they hurt really bad. Just prepare a solution of baking soda and water in a 3:1 ratio and apply it to the rashes for a couple of days. The rashes will disappear gradually!
People having oily skin also have oily scalp and therefore, their hair tends to become oily or greasy and start stinking. Just use some baking powder and water solution, apply it to your hair and this stink can be gotten rid of.
Firstly, wash your hair, secondly, take one table spoon of baking soda and slowly massage your wet hair with baking soda. Let it stay put for a while and then clean it up. On repeating this process for a couple of times, you'll see dandruff leaving your hair.
So, believe me now? Baking soda is just not used for making lip-smacking food but is also a pretty useful skin care product.
P.S.: You can thank me later.
