Monday how-to: DIY beauty

I usually show you the awesome products that are available in the beauty section of your local stores, but today I want to share a super-product that has many, many uses and costs next to nothing.

It's Bi-Carb (baking) soda (NOT baking powder)!

Add half a cup of bi-carb soda to your bath for extra soft skin.

Mix a paste of bi-carb soda and apply to sunburn, windburn, prickly heat, acne, coldsores and any allergic reaction to another product.

Use bi-carb soda dry on your toothbrush to whiten your teeth, or a teaspoon in a glass of water as a mouthwash.

Make a poultice of bi-carb soda and water for insect bites and stings.

Use bi-carb soda dry as a deodorant under your arms or in your shoes.

Make a paste of bi-carb and water and use as an exfoliant.

This is such a versatile product, and I'm sure I haven't even scratched the surface of what you can do with it for your beauty needs.
