Avocado Mask (dry skin)
Using the Skin of avocado as your ingredient
Smooth skin of avocado all over complexion, let firm for 15 minutes rinse off. (Avocado is very rich in antioxidants, which are great in preventing the pre-mature aging of our skin)
For Dry Skin
If your about to head out the door in 30 minutes, but you notice that you have all those flakes on your face from dry skin, then this recipe is for you! It gets rid of the flakes, plus it’s good for you!
You simply put 1 tbs. milk with 2 tbs. honey and begin mixing! It takes a while for the mixture to completely blend together, so just be patient and keep on working at it! Then, wash your face with your hand soap (like Dial) and put the combo on your face and leave on for 15 minutes. It’s a good idea to tie your hair back tightly, so all your fly-aways don’t get caught in the stickiness of the mask and totally flaw your hairstyle that you worked and hour on! After the 15 minutes are up, just easily wash the mask off and “ta-da!” all those flakes are history! Then put on your make-up as usual, and your ready to face the world (without flakes on your face!)

Beauty tip. In the shower pour corn meal on a wet washcloth and after you have taken your shower as a finish, rub the corn meal all over your body for silky smooth skin.
A great way to take off make-up is with baby oil. Just dab a little on a tissue and swipe across your face!
Eye puffiness can be caused by fluid retention that builds up while you sleep. You can reduce your puffiness by sleeping on your back and elevating your head a little bit.
Natural remedies to reduce puffiness are to apply cucumber slices, tea bags, cooling masks and gels to relieve your skin.
Almond and Milk Moisturizer – Almonds soaked in milk overnight and ground into a paste cleanses and moisturizes the skin, while honey helps to remove blemishes. Enlarged pores can be reduced by applying a mixture of orange and lemon juice to the face. Dark circles under the eyes can be reduced with tea bags or a piece of cotton dipped in cucumber juice.
Long Lasting Eyeshadow
If you want your eyeshadow to last all day long simply apply a thin layer of concealer before applying your eyeshadow. It will usually last you for 24hrs.
Strawberry Cleanser (oily skin)
¼ cup pure aloe vera
2 Tbsp. Plain organic yogurt
Three crushed organic strawberries
¼ cup Tbsp. Borax
Mix all ingredients well. Massage into skin gently. Rinse off with lukewarm water
Homemade Underarm Whitening Secret
Before bath, put 3 drops of oil on your palm. Rub on underarm. Massage gently.
Then put small amount of brown sugar. Massage it in circular motion but gently and slowly.
Do it every other day before bath. It helps whiten your underarm and also helps remove dead cells on your underarm that cause darkness.
Longer Lasting Lipstick
For a longer lasting lip tint, apply lipstick and then separate a 2-ply recycled facial tissue. Place a lyer between your lips and press them together. Re-apply and blot again. The pigment stays on the lips, and you less likely to re-apply your lipstick during the day.
Face masks using ingredients that are readily available at home or at the supermarket.

For all you lipgloss addicts… I use olive oil for just about EVERYTHING…I like to saturate my hair with it, wrap it up in a towel for about 30 mins…and wash well.
A simple lipgloss is as follows…
Some extra virgin olive oil with 1 or 2 drops of peppermint oil…voila! Yummy, good for you lipgloss.
No Soap and Water Please
However you do it, there are 3 things to keep your skin the best it can be. Wash, exfoliate, and make sure you keep your skin hydrated. I say hydrated instead of moisturize because even the most oiliest skin types might not need moisturizer, but everyone needs a oil-free hydrating lotion to keep those layers of skin plumped up.
How To Pluck And Shape Eyebrows
Always follow the natural shape of your brow. Begin by brushing your brows up and back. A good rule of thumb to follow so you don’t lose the arch in your brows is to pluck from underneath on the outer arch and from up above on the inner part of the arch.
