October 21, 2019

For the love of beauty … All of us can either spend a fortune or find remedies in the kitchen cupboard. Here are some interesting tips, some are practical, some great money savers and others just plain unusual Enjoy!

Nix Post-Shaving Redness - Shave your face, legs or underarms in the shower after standing under warm water for a few minutes. This will help open up hair follicles and will soften hairs so they're less coarse to shave.

Apply Mascara To Fake Lashes - This will help fake lashes blend in more seamlessly with your natural ones.

Keep It On - When using cream-based beauty products - like lipstick or foundation - apply a dry face powder on top to seal in your look.

Find Your Shade - When choosing a foundation, test a product on the skin near your jawline. And be sure to do it in natural light. This will ensure the foundation tone you choose for your face isn't too different from the natural shade of your neck

Cracked Heal Remedy - Apply nappy rash cream to help heal cracked elbows and feet. The moisturisers and anti-inflamatory ingredients help hydrate and repair the skin.

Remove Nail Polish Without Remover - If you run out of nail polish remover, you can remove nail polish by applying a clear top coat to the nail and removing it quickly with a cotton ball.

Treat Ingrown Hairs - Apply a product containing witch hazel to help reduce the swelling and redness, then coax the ingrown hair from its location with a pair of tweezers (don't pull it out as this will only make the ingrown hair regrow the same way later).

For Greasy Hair - Avoid applying conditioner directly to your hair's roots - just apply the heavy moisturizing cream to the ends of your hair

Sunburn Remedy - Take a warm bath in VERY strong black tea -- the tannins take away the sting and swelling

Dry Out Pimples - Dabbing toothpaste onto a pimple is a quick and easy way to help dry it out

Give Curls Bounce - Never brush curls out with a brush. Instead, loosen them with your fingers. This will give curls added lift without flattening them down.

Use Oil On Your Skin - Even If is is already oily. While it sounds mad using an oil-based product to remove makeup or excess dirt from your skin can actually improve your epidermis' condition. Why? Over-cleaning stimulates the sebum glands, which causes skin to over-produce oil. Using oil-based products will have the opposite effect.
