8 Valuable advice on the application of baking soda:
- Unpleasant sweat smell
I hope you know that using industrial antiperspirants blocks sweat glands. The sweat just does not go out. That is why they are “esteemed”, but in vain.
Namely, along with the sweat from the body, toxins are removed as well. By blocking the sweat glands, the body is not clean.
The presence of aluminum salts and parabens in deodorants and antiperspirants composition increases the risk of breast cancer and other malignancies.
The unpleasant smell of sweat in the armpits can be eliminated by soda. If you apply a little baking soda on a dry and clean armpit, you can enjoy for 24 hours!
Throughout the whole day- no odor! Even if the sweat is pouring like a river, it dries quickly, leaving no trace in the form of stains or unpleasant smell on the clothes.
You can make adeodorant with baking soda as well.
- Bath against smelly feet
Soak your tired feet after a hard day in a solution of warm water and baking soda (to 3l of water add 3 tablespoons of baking).
If you do this regularly, unpleasant smell will be gone forever. With the help of baking soda, you can achieve the effect of smooth and soft feet.
To get rid of this unpleasant phenomenon, the following recipe will be of great help:
Wet the hair with water, then, energetically rub baking soda into your scalp. After that, rinse the hair and dry it.
