Dry skin moisturizer
Elbows and knees are sometimes pretty dry, especially in winter. Applying baking soda is an excellent way to keep dry parts of your body moisturized. Add some baking soda into your moisturizer and apply it onto the dry skin area. This will remove any rough edges.

Baking soda is far better than commercial products that guarantee you a whiter smile. Combine baking soda, water and some salt and use this mixture instead of your toothpaste. You can also gargle a solution of this mixture to eliminate bad breath.
Keep a small container filled with baking soda in your home to eliminate unpleasant odors. You can also use the powder to eliminate underarm odor. Mix baking soda and water into a paste and apply it under your arms. This will eliminate any bacteria that causes bad odor.

Use baking soda to remove pimples and blackheads. Combine it with lemon juice and apply the paste-like mixture on your skin. For optimal results, apply the mixture overnight, because lemon does not go well along with sun exposure.
Baking soda is the best thing that can happen to you after a long working day. It will relax you and help you remove dead skin. Combine 3 tablespoons of baking soda and water. This is an amazing foot soak that will soothe your feet and protect your skin.
