Unusual & Wacky Beauty Treatments that Work!

Fix a Flushed Face – If you turn red and stay that way after exercising (like seriously red for hours, even though you’re healthy and hydrated), take an antihistamine like Benadryl when you leave the gym to reduce redness.

Ditch the oil slick. To keep shine in check, always keeps blotting papers on hand. But in a pinch, an unusual way to keep oil at bay put deodorant on your finger and dab under your eyes and t-zone to help create a matte look.

Go for sheer foundation Adding aloe to foundation gives it excellent slip. Sheer out your favorite base by adding a half a pea size of aloe to your foundation before you apply it. Also, you can apply aloe to your face and while still dewy, spread on a little foundation. You’re ready for summer.

Fill in fine lines. – Here’s a way to keep lipstick from feathering (a great trick if you have tiny wrinkles above your upper lip): Coat your mouth and go slightly outside your lip line with a clear balm ‑- like plain ChapStick — before applying color. Like invisible spackle.

Smudge-proof your liner – Apply it with a pencil or a tiny brush, then trace over the line with a matching powder shadow. To make it last even longer: Wet your shadow brush with Visine first.

Use Crisco Eye Makeup Remover and Moisturizer

Dry Oatmeal Hair Touchup – If your hair is oily and you don’t have the time or the place to wash it, rub dry oatmeal in your hair to absorb its excess oil. Remove oatmeal with a brush.

Put Vaseline on your lashes to make them longer and thicker.

Dryer Sheets – will de-static your hair. I use this trick all the time in winter. Run a dryer sheet over your hair to help get the static out.

Beauty from the Kitchen (Many Tips and Tricks)

Soften Your Bod with Avocado
 – Take a ripe avocado, remove the pit and skin, and mash it up in a bowl. Slather it all over your body, let it sit for 20 minutes, then rinse off. Your skin will be sooo soft — avocado is a natural moisturizer.

Avocado is great for dry skin. Mash it and cover your face with it. Wait for 15 minutes. Another thing you can do to create your own face mask is to mix a mashed half banana and combine it with egg yolk and olive oil. Bananas are good for your skin since they’re full of vitamins.

Buff with Baking Soda – 
If you find yourself streaking (not glowing) after applying self-tanner, put some baking soda on a loofah, and scrub away the stripes.

Amp Shine with Vinegar – Mix one part vinegar with four parts carbonated water, and soak dry hair. Leave on for 15 minutes before you shampoo to lock in shine and combat dullness.

For oily skin, whip some egg white until it gets foamy. This will take away some of the oiliness and might work against acne as well. Apply to your forehead, nose and chin.

To smoothen the skin on your body, try adding some whipping cream, olive oil and fresh mashed strawberries to your bath water. The oil and the cream will make your skin smooth while the strawberries will freshen it up. You will only need about a half cup of cream and a tablespoon of olive oil.
