With the economy being the way it is; it’s no surprise that almost everyone is trying to cut costs and one of the biggest financial drains is makeup. While it is true that getting the best quality means shelling out a lot of money, in today’s world, it might not be an everyday option.

 However, there’s always a less expensive in a pinch alternative that works just as well as without breaking the bank. One of these alternatives is baking soda, which, in addition to cleaning the home and curing insect bites, can also serve for beauty. Here are just a few things baking soda can be used for:

  • Remove excessive hair products

Sprays, gels and mousse can dull the hair day after day. Add a small amount of baking soda to shampoo and shampoo normally. the excess products will be removed from the hair shaft.

  • Control oily hair

Sprinkle some into your hair, massage it and brush it out. This is a quick dry shampoo that works well when in a rush. The hair can be traditionally washed later on.

  • Deodorant 

Take a makeup brush, and use it in conjunction with the baking soda to serve as a cost efficient deodorant. 

  • Exfoliates
However, perhaps the best remedy of all that baking soda can provide in beauty is as a very effective exfoliate for the face.  Simply mix 2/3 of baking soda to 1/3 of water to create the paste and apply to a clean face. Rub gently in a circular motion and then rinse off.
