  • Blackheads
A teaspoon of baking soda mixed with a cup of distilled water makes an excellent solution for blackheads. “This is what many professional estheticians use (or they buy a pre-made solution which is basically the same) either with steam or with galvanic current prior to extractions.

  • “Mix 1 tablespoon baking soda, 5 drops hydrogen peroxide, and a few drops of water. To make the teeth whitening solution, mix the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide in a small container until a consistent paste develops, add water only if necessary,” says Dr. Jessica Emery of Sugar Fix Dental Loft

  • Cuticle Mercy
Have you been getting way too many gel manicures? Are your cuticles looking like they’ve been through a war? Create a paste out of baking soda and warm water and rub on your cuticles. If you have enough, also treat your hands to a bit of a softening facial with the same mixture.

  • Dry Shampoo
If you are out of dry shampoo or are on the run, baking soda can be a great pitch hitter. Sprinkle a dime-size amount (or less, depending on how oily you are) onto your hair. You can always add more, but you don’t want to use too much off the bat. Then, just comb, fluff, and enjoy.

  • Detox Bath
Baking soda also makes a great detox bath. Mix it with equal parts sea salt and add your favorite essential oil (lavender or jasmine are very calming.)

  • You can do this at home by first cleansing and then mixing up the solution and holding your head over a basin of hot water with a towel over your head to help concentrate the heat and steam. Extractions should be done gently with fingers wrapped in cotton and gentle pressure.
