7. As an acne spot-treatment
If you ran out of your favorite acne or drawing mask, try making a little paste from baking soda and water and applying it to the pimple like a spot treatment. We don’t recommend this for deep cysts, but it dries surface offenders out like a charm.
8. To whiten your teeth
For a quick way to whiten your teeth in the morning, sprinkle baking soda into your palm, dip a damp toothbrush into it, and brush. Then rinse and follow with your toothpaste. For an antifungal mouthwash, mix one teaspoon baking soda in ¼ glass of water and swish the solution through your teeth.
9. As a face wash
Exfoliating your face removes rough dead skin and reveals brighter,younger-looking skin. But if your scrub is too harsh, you could end up looking like you got a bad facial. Try this recipe for a gentle, antifungal (read: anti-acne) face wash: Combine one tablespoon raw organic honey and one teaspoon baking soda in your palm and rub together. Then, massage gently in circular motions. Let sit for a minute and rinse thoroughly with warm water.
10. To calm uneasy stomach
Okay, we know this isn't exactly a beauty solution, but it works so well we had to share. Acid stomach, heartburn, gas, and other tummy issues are quickly relieved by baking soda because its slight alkalinity can neutralize the acid causing the problem. Just mix a teaspoon into a glass of warm water and drink it down. First Page
