Who Knew?

WHO KNEW?!!
Repurpose spare buttons by using them to keep pairs of earrings together.  Who knew?  I’m sure you’ve seen all those cute jewelry displays for dangle earrings.  But what are you supposed to do with your earring stems?  I am always loosing the backs on mine.  This is genius!
Rather than buy expensive cuticle oil, reach for the cooking spray instead!  I always knew I loved Pam.
Nail polish: 1) Have sensitive ears?  I sure do.  And those cheap earrings irritate my ears so badly.  Apply a coat of clear nail polish to the earring stem.  Viola!  Now those $2 earrings you find on sale at Forever 21 you can totally buy and wear!  2)  Coat the bottom of your shaving-cream can to prevent rust stains from forming on your bathtub

Neaten a nail job by dabbing on skin around your cuticles pre-polish.  If you make a mistake, the polish is easily wiped away!

Burn your forehead on your curling iron?  Slather some yogurt on the wound- the coolness will help with swelling and the yogurt will reduce redness and speed the healing process.

For dry, itchy winter skin or discomfort from mosquito bites, mix oats in your bath for instant relief.  Oh yeah, they’re also really good for breakfast!

Do you have any who knew beauty tricks?  I’d love to hear them!

  1. If you don’t want to purchase a lash card to protect your lids from mascara, use a plastic spoon. Also you can use really cheap Kool-Aid packets as lip stain

  2. I just created a post on my blog for moisture care routines for the winter. I have to change mine with the seasons. Love the blog started following. Please feel free to check mine out and follow if you like.

Who Knew?

Have you ever brushed your lips?  Yeah I’m talking like, toothbrush brushed.  I’m not sure if this is a super old trick, but I just barely learned that if you brush your lips with your tooth brush twice a day it helps exfoliate dead skin and your lipstick will look better on your super smooth lips.  I use Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Color, it’s like a lip paint that I seriously swear by.  When my lips are dry though it looks awful.  So.  Exfoliate.  Who knew?!

Apparently Hemorrhoid Cream, yes you read that right, reduces under eye puffiness and dark circles.  It contains chemicals that constrict blood vessels.  So use it under your eyes and on other red marks- like ZITS!  Shut up?!  I’ll have to try it… it seems crazy!

Have stick straight lashes?  Yeah, me too.  I have a friend whose are absolutely perfect.  Shawnee- I hate you!  ANYWAY.  That stupid lash curler has never really worked for me.  Until I started heating the sucker up with my blow dryer.  Yup!  Blast it with some heat and it works like a curling iron on your lashes!

Use your hairspray bottle to dry the hairspray.  I can’t believe I haven’t shared this secret- it’s such a part of my daily routine I totally just forgot about it!  Rat your hair, hair spray it and then hold the can up to your roots while the hairspray dries!

According to Woman’s Day, eggs are good for your hair.  Use the entire egg to condition.  Use only the egg white to treat oily hair and use only the egg yolk to moisturize dry brittle hair.  The yolk is rich in fats and proteins which are naturally moisturizing.  And the egg white contains bacteria-eating enzymes which will remove unwanted oils!  Who knew?!  Rule of thumb, yolk treatment- once a month.  White treatment- once every two weeks.  Leave it in for about 20 minutes and rinse with cool water.  You don’t want scrambled eggs in your hair!

  1. I brush my lips whenever I brush my teeth, then put on a coat of Burts Bees mango lip balm. It feels so nice, especially now that the weather is drying out my skin more. I always love reading little beauty tips and tricks! 🙂

  2. I’ve heard and tried some of these. I’m going to need and try this toothbrush trick. I have the same lip color and with my dry lips it doesn’t always look so great. Hemorrhoid cream does work. I used it in school a lot for late nights when studying. A tip with the eyelash curler if you have a metal be careful with heating it up. When I heated mine up I had a plastic one and it worked like a charm. Great tips!

  3. I’ll have to try that toothbrush thing! PreparationH really does work on zits. I thought my mom was talking crazy at first, but turns out, it really works!
