Tippy Tuesdays #4 ( 20 Beauty, SKIN, HAIR Tips)

I use Vaseline to remove my eye makeup - nothing works as great as it does and it is only $4 at a department store! and olive oil works just as great!

    Secret for shiny beautiful hair - use this mask once a month - Take 2 cups of hot water, add rosemary, 1 green tea packet and 3 tablespoons of olive oil and put it in your hair for half hour - you will notice the difference. I have frizzy, wavy hair and I try this and I have never used any other hair conditioner from the store!
Use warm honey and put it on the face for 15 minutes and your face will be a smooth like a baby

If you run out of shaving cream, take a little bit of olive oil and rub it in where you are shaving, it will work just as good if not better!

For softer feet (Spring/Summer is just around the corner!!! ) - take your favourite lotion and massage it over clean feet for 3-5 minutes. The take 2 plastic bags and wrap them around your feet for 2-3 hours! You will have amazing soft feet ready to rock in sandals!

Drink up! Drink 2 litres of water everyday.  Its great for your skin, hair, overall health in general :)

Take your old tooth brush, put a little bit of vaseline on it and expoliate your lips with it. I do it, they are much less chapped that way.

Do those favourite pair of heels and do they irritate your skin? - here is how you can fix this problem: Take a wax candle and rub it under the strap, or the back corner of the shoes and then wear the heels. The candle will coat the shoe material and wont cause any more irritations.

Use magazines in your tall boots so they can stored straight to maintain their shapes and you made a great use out of your magazines!

Take your favourite lipstick and take a blush brush and rub it in the lipstick and use it as a cream blusher for your cheeks.

If you have dark circles, cut up 2 round pieces of kiwi, place it on eyes for 10-15 mins, it will reduce puffiness also.

Use yogurt as a mask for face, it brightens and lightens up the spots.

To keep eye shadow from creasing, eliminate as much oil as possible from your lids. To do it, use an eye shadow base or pressed powder before applying color.

Wear sunscreen everyday to avoid sun damage to your skin.

When covering up blemishes, select a color for what you're covering up. For example, orange-tinged concealers counteract blueish under-eye circles. A mint-green concealer hides the redness of a pimple. The idea is that concealers act as neutralizers. Unlike foundation, concealer is mostly made of pigment, so you need only a little bit

Refresh your makeup by spraying your face with water. While your face is still wet, start reblending the foundation, powder, or concealer you already have on.

Easy on the foundation. Makeup used to cover up pimples tends to clog pores and cause more blemishes. Try using a concealer with a zit-zapping ingredient like salicylic acid.

Breaking out? Use a deep-cleansing mask once a week to rid your skin of impurities and dead skin cells that may be clogging pores.

Apply a clear topcoat Topcoat helps extend the life of your manicure. You can use the base coat as a topcoat. Do brush topcoat on and around the edges of nails as well, it's an extra seal against chipping.

Last but not least - take up yoga or meditation to reduce your stress levels.

                                                                         And Smile!
