Every woman has her tricks to staying beautiful. Knowing the right stores to buy beautiful and cheap clothes, using that special brand of makeup and going to a certain beauty salon are some of these tricks, but it is possible to look even more beautiful with some silly and cheap secrets, which can be used at home.
Homemade recipes to take care of the face
1 – Ice to fix makeup: human skin is made up of millions of pores, which can get in the way when applying makeup. If you don’t have a primer to use before foundation, concealer, and powder, ice is your best friend. With a few pebbles wrapped in a clean, soft cloth, you have a compress to use on your face. Press lightly, without rubbing. This will close the pores and allow the makeup to look more “professional”.
2 – Exfoliating for a smooth skin: to remove the impurities accumulated in the skin and also the dead cells, nothing better than a good exfoliation. When you don’t have the right cream, however, you don’t have to spend fortunes on a beauty salon. Just mix some honey and sugar together, creating a cheap and simple exfoliating mask. The recipe should be applied to the face, then massaged.
3 – Chamomile to deflate the face: when we sleep badly or spend several days working or studying beyond the limit, it is normal for our skin to give us away. To relieve redness and reduce puffiness on your face, try chamomile tea. Just brew the tea as usual and put it in the fridge overnight. The next morning, soak a cotton ball in the tea and apply it on your face, especially on swollen areas, such as dark circles, for example.
4 – Papaya and honey to hydrate: it is possible to hydrate the skin without needing industrialized creams. A good recipe is to mash a piece of papaya and mix it with a little honey. The mask must be applied to the face and left for a few minutes, so that it can act. Then just wash your face with running water.
5 – Water for beautiful skin: A spray of mineral water or coconut water can be used on the face to help keep the skin looking good. Another good tip is to soak your face in ice water to help hide dark circles, inflammation and swelling.
Natural treatments for your hair
6 – Olive oil to control the volume: women who have oily hair need to be careful with this tip, but olive oil can be used as a natural finisher on the wires. Apply a few drops in the palm of the hand and spread it on the wires, lightly, to control volume and hydrate. Blondes also need to be careful, as the greenish pigmentation of olive oil can interfere with hair color.
7 – Talc to disguise oiliness: of course, the best remedy for dirty hair is still shampoo, but if you need to leave the house and don’t have time for it, talc is a great ally to disguise the oiliness of the strands. Apply a little at the root of the hair, spreading with a comb towards the ends. But don’t overdo it – as soon as you can, wash your hair because, if used in excess, talc can have the opposite effect and make it look even more “dirty”.
8 – Avocado and egg to hydrate: crushing half an avocado, an egg yolk and two spoons of honey you get a mask with high hydration power. Just spread it on the wires and cover with an aluminum or electric cap, let it act for 30 minutes and then remove the mask.
9 – Milk to combat the action of chlorine on the wires: women with blonde hair may have problems with the chlorine used in swimming pools. This substance interferes with the color of the wires and can turn them green, but to eliminate the problem, simply wash your hair with milk. Use a bowl to collect the liquid, which can be used several times – until you have completely eliminated the problem.
10 – Aloe Vera against oiliness: the recipe is simple and effective, just scrape the “gelatin” contained in the leaves and aloe and spread it over the scalp. Let it act for a few minutes and remove with cold water.
Tricks to get a radiant body
11 – Cornmeal and honey to lighten armpits and groin: mix two tablespoons of cornmeal with two tablespoons of honey. Spread the mixture on the desired area and massage for a few seconds, then remove. Repeat the process once a week.
12 – Sugar to exfoliate: in a container, mix a cup of sugar tea with five tablespoons of almond oil. Then, just apply to the body with circular movements. In addition to exfoliating, the mixture also moisturizes the skin.
13 – Honey and sugar to take care of dry feet: mix two tablespoons of honey and five tablespoons of sugar. Massage your feet with the mixture for about ten minutes, then rinse. Finally, apply a moisturizing cream.
14 – Carqueja against varicose veins: since varicose veins are nothing more than the manifestation of a circulation problem, carqueja tea can help improve this function. Just boil some carqueja leaves in a liter of water and drink it five times a day.
