Hello, my name is Geraldine, and I’m a DIY skincare addict. When it comes to taking my skincare routine to the next level, I’m not scared to step out of my comfort zone. Where someone sees a kitchen pantry, I see an endless sea of DIY face masks possibilities. From cinnamon to baking soda and everything in between, there’s a chance that at one point or another, those ingredients found their way into my skincare routine.
The Rise of Baking Soda
Baking soda has been touted as the be-all, end-all of natural beauty products. Beyond skincare, people are using baking soda to wash their hair, soothe bug bites, and even treat UTIs. That’s a bold experiment, in my opinion.
Despite the lack of evidence, people are grasping the fact that baking soda is both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial. If you’re struggling with skin issues like acne, those are two characteristics you’d want in your beauty products. Before you incorporate baking soda into your skincare routine, consult with a dermatologist or a doctor.
