Baking Soda in Nail Care

One of the biggest surprises on my quest to live a greener life has been baking soda.

Besides acting as a leavening agent when baking, baking soda also acts as a green alternative to a myriad of cleaning- and beauty products. In short, you get the shine without the unpleasant residue.

So without any further ado, let me introduce baking soda into your nail care regime.

Baking soda works wonders on your nails and cuticles to exfoliate and polish them. It whitens your nails and help to remove residue that can make your nails look yellow and dull.

Here’s how you do it:

  • Mix up a super easy paste of three parts baking soda and one part water.
  • Remove all nail polish.
  • Rub the paste into your nails and cuticles or use it on a nail brush.
  • Rinse off with water.

Have a fab week and check back soon for more green news.
