La La Anthony's Sensitive-Skin Hack Costs $2

From opening up about co-parenting amidst a very public separation to $2 drugstore tips, La La Anthony is keeping it real this summer.

The 37-year-old recently teamed up with Arm & Hammer Baking Soda as part of the brand's campaign to educate the public on the MANY uses of the kitchen/fridge staple.

"I have really sensitive skin and I use it as an exfoliator—you just add a little bit of water and wash. It works perfectly. It's kind of crazy how many uses it has," she says. 

And while she is a celebrity, she's also a big-time drugstore devotee when it comes to beauty. "I like to do a mix of products—I love the Tracie Martyn line—but, for the most part, everything I need, I can get at the drugstore. I'm pretty low-maintenance."

One bad beauty habit she's still trying to fix? Not being super diligent in the face-washing department. "I'm still working on mastering that one. I have to convince myself that, no matter how late I am out, no matter how tired I am, I have to do it. You obviously don't want to sleep in makeup, but I still have to stay on top of it."

    Baking soda is extremely alkaline and can harm the pH balance of your skin barrier, or "acid mantle", if one is not careful. Always remember to use a toner containing something acidic after using the baking soda, to bring your pH level back to normal. You can use a typical BHA or AHA acid toner, or even some diluted apple cider vinegar (2 parts distilled water to 1 part vinegar).

    I have worked for major cosmetic lines, owned my own skin care products. Over the 35 years of being a licensed cosmetologist & salon owner. Baking soda is a very good exfoliants for your skin. But you need a brand that does not have aluminum in it , which attributes to Alzheimers. Try a brand that aluminum free, like Red Hill baking soda, and while you're at it , switch it for baking purposes as well .
