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.”
