Emma Stone revealed she has a rather budget approach when it comes to her beauty routine and says she uses baking soda to exfoliate her skin.
Emma Stone, 24, told France’s ELLE magazine that she uses baking soda, which costs as little as $1 and is traditionally used as a raising agent for cakes and bread, to “scrub” her face and get rid of dry patches.
Josh Peterson of The Discovery Network’s Planet Green writes: “Baking soda makes a top-notch exfoliation. Why? Baking soda is coarse, but not too coarse.
“It’s the best amount of coarse for removing the top layer of dead skin cells, and if applied correctly, it won’t cause your sensitive facial skin to become red and irritated.”
He recommends mixing a teaspoon of the powder to a facial cleanser and massaging the concoction into the skin. This should be repeated two to three times a week.

On the haircare front, Arizona-born Emma Stone says she always tries to use deep conditioning masks and products to keep her dyed tresses in good condition.
She explained: “I’m not really in the know when it comes to haircare. But since I’ve become blonde again, I use specially adapted products.
“Otherwise, I’m a fan of coconut oil hair masks as before applying shampoo.”
It appears that Emma Stone is equally low-key when it comes to her fitness plan and admits she hardly ever works out, preferring to practice relaxing techniques like yoga instead.
She said: “At the moment I don’t do that much, but I know I need to change that. I’m trying to get into yoga, I like it and apparently it’s very good for you.
“As well as yoga, I do a bit of meditation.”
Emma Stone also says she has a junk food habit and claims to not watch what she eats.
Quizzed about her best diet tip, Emma Stone replied: “Nothing in particular, but I should start to, I eat way too much sugar.”
According to a fashion and beauty website, adding coarse sea salt to shampoo is an easy way to get thicker and fuller hair.
In a new ModaMob video, host Marianna Hewitt explains that hair needs exfoliation just as much as skin.
Mixing three parts coarse sea salt with two parts shampoo apparently does the trick.
By using this “detoxifying blend”, hair will be stripped of dead skin cells, old product build-up and dirt.
And it won’t lose any of its natural, healthy oils.
Former Miss California Marianna Hewitt creates the blend using a $1 shampoo and a $2 tub of salt.
She gives a step-by-step explanation of how to create the hair treatment.
“Using lots of hair products every day can actually make your hair feel flatter and more weighed down,” Marianna Hewitt explains.

To give your hair a “fresh start”, Marianna Hewitt says you could either buy a pre-made shampoo from beauty brand Lush for $27, or you could follow her simple steps to create your own DIY detoxifying blend that will only set you back $3.
Make sure the salt you use is coarse, so you can get its exfoliating benefits.
The sea salt will get all of the “gunk” out of your hair, she says.
“This is going to remove all the old product build-up in your hair from years of products which, in result, gives your hair a lift.”
The video shows Marianna Hewitt pouring two parts clarifying shampoo into a container of three parts sea salt. She then blends the mixture thoroughly.
Wash your hair with the mixture in the shower, then rinse with cold water to eliminate all residue.
And the host warns not to do the usual “lather, rinse repeat” with this treatment
“Do not wash your hair with this more than once a month because you’ll end up cleaning it TOO good,” Marianne Hewitt says.
