How to Turn Your Kitchen into a Mini-Spa

As a college student, I know ALL about ballin’ on a budget. With the price of tuition and textbooks skyrocketing, I rarely have the extra coins for expensive scrubs and rubs to beautify myself. But alas, I am the ULTIMATE recessionista! When push comes to broke, I run to my pantry for solace. You’d be surprised what you can do with a lttle!

Baking soda  — This is at the TOP of my beauty must-haves list because it has so many uses. If you have dull, dry, or blemish-prone skin, mix a tablespoon of baking soda with a few drops of water to form a paste. Then rub the mixture onto your face in a gentle, circular motion and with cold water for a yummy glow! And of course you can skip those pricey bleaching strips and sprinkle a little baking soda on your toothbrush to whiten your smile.
