    Beauty benefits of baking soda(bicarb)...

    For bright teeth: Baking soda is a natural bleach for the teeth. In a small dish, mix 1 tbsp. baking soda with some water and a pinch of salt, and use this mixture instead of the regular toothpaste once a day to get bright teeth.
    For hair: ever wondered how to get rid of product build-up on the hair (i.e. deposition of certain chemicals on the hair because of using a certain shampoo and conditioner for a long time. You get to know about this when you feel that the shampoo or conditioner is no longer acting on your hair)? Baking soda can help.
    Add a tsp. Of baking soda to regular shampoo bottle. Now use this shampoo to wash your hair. This will prevent product build up
    Alternatively, after shampoo, dissolve a tsp. of baking soda in a cup of water/ apple cider vinegar, and pour this mixture over your hair, and then rinse off with fresh, clean water.
    Dry shampoo: baking soda can also be dusted on the hair, on a day when you don’t want to shampoo, to get rid of excessive oils.
    For the body: Take 1-2 tbsp. of baking soda, or more, depending on your requirement, and add only as much water to make a thick paste. This acts as an excellent scrub for the skin, and also for any rough patches.
    Relaxing Bath: Mix 2-3 cups of baking soda with ½ cup corn starch, and keep in an air-tight container. Add 1/4th cup of this mixture to your bath-tub to get bubbly bath at home! It will help in soothing the skin, and softening it.
    For the nails: Dip a soft, wet toothbrush into baking soda powder, and use this to scrub around nails. It will remove all dead skin, and soften the cuticle, leaving hands and nails squeaky clean.
    For fungal infection on feet/ hands: Add 1 tbsp. baking soda to a tub full of warm water, along with some almond oil. This will eliminate the fungal infection, and soften the skin too!
    For the face:

    Exfoliation: Mix 1 tbsp. of baking soda with 1 tbsp. of water or apple cider vinegar. This is an excellent mild scrub for the skin, and also helps in tightening skin pores (when used with apple cider vinegar).
    Anti-acne: Bacteria on the skin need an acidic environment to grow, and since Baking Soda is alkaline in nature, it disrupts the growth of bacteria on the skin (without disrupting the pH balance of the skin) and helps in fighting acne. Use in the same way as the Exfoliator above. Leave the mixture on the face for 10 minutes after exfoliation, and then wash off with cold water.
    Skin brightening and for getting even complexion: Mix 1 tsp. of baking Soda with a 1 tbsp. of lemon juice and a few drops of olive oil. Apply this pack to your cleansed face for 10 mintes, then wash off with cold water.

    How to Lose weight without starvation: Lie Only 3X A Day for 5 Minutes, But in This Way!
    Believe it or not, it may be possible to lose weight without dieting, pills, or expensive gym equipment. The technique, first described in a popular Japanese book, only requires a towel and few minutes of your time. The method was created by Dr. Fukujuji, a noted specialist in disorders of the pelvis. Dr. Fukujuji discovered that the primary cause of belly fat was a displacement of the pelvic and subcostal bones.
    How Does the Exercise Work?

    The theory is that by lying on a rolled up towel for five minutes, three times a day, you correct the alignment of the spine and pelvis. This allows you to lose weight, improve posture, and relieve back pain. Dr. Fukujuji’s studies also show that by repositioning the towel under the bust or ribs you can lift your breasts and get a more defined waist.

    Step by Step Instructions:
    • Roll up a towel. Make sure you secure the towel with some string or a piece of tape so that it won’t unroll. The roll should be slightly wider than the width of your back.
    • Lie down on your back on a firm, flat surface, such as the floor. Place the rolled up towel under your back at about the level of your belly button.
    • Spread your legs about shoulder width apart. Turn your feet inward so that the great toe of each foot is touching.
    • Stretch your arms over your head with the palms facing down. Link your pinky fingers together.
    • Maintain the position for five minutes.
    • When you finish, make sure to get up slowly. You should start by first rolling to your side and then transitioning to a sitting position. You should then stand up slowly from the sitting position.

    You will achieve the best results if you repeat this exercise three times a day. The position will not seem natural or comfortable at first; however, it should become more tolerable with time. If you are unable to hold the position for the full five minutes, start by doing the exercise as long as you are able and gradually increase the time to the full five minutes.

    This technique does not promise overnight results; however, most patients show a steady decrease in belly fat if they perform the exercise daily. You should consult your doctor before beginning this exercise regimen, especially if you suffer from chronic back or hip problems.

    – A piece of clear plastic (Gladwrap)
    – 2 small washcloths
    – Tissue
    – Moisturiser/balm (Vaseline)
    1. It’s best to do this once you’ve jumped out of the shower while your skin’s temperature is higher as pores will be open, making it easier for you to extract dirt and grime.
    2. Apply a thick coat of moisturiser to the area that needs to be treated to create a temporary seal, trapping the heat in the skin. Vaseline works well for this as a quick little skin salve.

    3. Cover the area with a piece of Gladwrap and apply two hot, damp washcloths for five minutes to help the area retain its heat longer and soften the pores and blackheads.
    4. Once the washcloths are removed, wrap a tissue over each forefinger and gently squeeze the skin where the blackheads are clogging your pores to remove them. Widen your fingers so the blackhead will be effectively removed from underneath. To avoid red marks, be gentle and keep repositioning your fingers.
    TIP: If the blackhead doesn’t come out after three attempts, leave it to avoid breaking a capillary.
    5. Follow up your extractions with skincare products containing acids, such as AHAs and BHAs, which absorb directly into the pores and keep them clean.
    Blackheads be gone!
