Bicarbonate of Soda as a Beauty Secret

Bicarbonate of soda is a household staple for most homes; it is the necessary raising agent used in cakes, bread, and is also used as a natural cleaning agent.



Sodium bicarbonate or sodium hydrogen carbonate is the chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Sodium bicarbonate is a white solid that is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder.



I had never heard of it being a key ingredient in a beauty regime, but a friend recently told me she was researching the properties of bicarbonate of soda, and decided to test it in a face wash. She claimed the results were phenomenal, but advised to use only once a week.



Sceptical and curious of her so called 'beauty secret', I gave it a go. I was wary of the harshness of soda because I know how effective it is on grease and stains in the kitchen, never mind my sensitive skin. You only need a quarter of a teaspoon mixed with your regular face wash to turn your daily cleanser into a more powerful and effective scrub.



My results were equally surprising. Once I'd mixed the bicarbonate with my natural soap and washed my face, I couldn't believe the softness of my skin. My moisturiser sunk in better than ever before, and all day my work colleagues had said I looked 'really well'.

Later that day when I applied my makeup, I can honestly say it has never glided on better.



Not recommended for daily but weekly, or monthly use, bicarbonate of soda will make your skin glow.



There's really no need to buy an exfoliant when there's a powerful pot of the stuff in your kitchen cupboard, and at a fraction of the price.
