It’s that time of year… When our hair gets VERY dry!!! The best leave-in  conditioner for your hair is nothing other than laundry room fabric  softener.  It’s very strong, so be sure to dilute it.  Suggestions:  1  cup water, 1/2 cup fabric softener…. Leave it in your hair about 4 minutes as a normal conditioner and it will feel amazing!!! …. and smell great as well! <3

Bet you didn&#8217;t know that the very CHEAP product called VASELINE could be SO useful?!?!


To Improve your Smile
Just rub it all over  your front teeth and gums to really make your teeth glisten.  When  you’re watching a beauty pageant on TV,They always have a gleaming smile –  that’s all thanks to Vaseline!
To Soften your Feet
Soak your feet in a warm tub of water for up to 15  minutes, and then rub the rough areas of skin with a pumice stone.  When  you are finished exfoliating the skin, take some Vaseline and rub it  into those areas.  For even better results, throw on a thick pair of socks and go to bed.  When  you wake up the next morning, you will notice a considerable difference  in the softness of your feet!
To Moisturize your Lips
rub a little into your  lips to hydrate them and it will give them that wet,  kissable shine.  You can apply Vaseline right overtop of any lipstick  you wear too.
To Style Dry Hair
If you have dry hair just dab a very small  amount of Vaseline onto your fingers and style your hair as you usually  would (do use very little as Vaseline can quickly make your hair go  from healthy looking and shiny to greasy and oily in seconds).  The  Vaseline will hold your style and your hair will feel and look better  too!
To Tame your Brows
Did you know that Vaseline can be used to hold your brows  in place?  Take a tiny little bit of the product and then apply it to  your eyebrow area with either an eyebrow brush or with your fingertip.

To Remove your Eye Makeup

Do you get UNSIGHTLY bags under your eyes?!?! I hate them! So here are a few ways that I found for your to fix the problem! 
Give Yourself a Massage
One of the reasons why we develop under eye bags is because the area  is not being stimulated enough. Take your index fingers and then gently  massage the skin around your eye area. This will help increase both the  blood flow and the flow of fluids in the area, which in turn will reduce  the appearance of your under eye bags.



Eat Fresh
Eating fresh foods rather than those loaded with salt – which causes  our whole body to bloat, including our eye area – will greatly reduce  your under eye bags and puffiness.  Drinking a large quantity of fruit  juices that aren’t loaded with sugars will also help flush out all of  the toxins and the excess salt and sodium from our system.
If you can handle the taste, lemon juice is the best juice to drink  to help prevent bloating (add a tablespoon of honey if you are finding  it too difficult to drink).  Make sure that all juices you make are  fresh and made by you and are not store bought. Store bought juices tend  to be loaded with sugars which will not help reduce your under eye  bags.
Use Papaya
Papaya is great for a number of different skin issues, but under eye  bags is definitely its forte.  Take a papaya and then mash it.  Collect  the juice, and then gently apply the juice right around your eye area  (use a patting motion so as to not damage the skin around the eyes).   The beta carotene in the papaya will help heal all eye problems,  including under eye bags, and it will help repair any facial tissues  that may be helping create the under eye bag problem.
Eye Creams
Eye creams have been proven to be effective, and are definitely worth  trying before you take a drastic and serious step towards surgical  removal of your under eye bags.  You will want to choose creams that  have particular substances in them, such as:
Eyeliss
Phytessence Wakame
Cynergy TK

The cold weather is here&#8230; and, unfortunately, it brings out the worst in our skin. A lot of people get those small bumps on the backs of their arms during this time of the year. Those are called Keratosis Pilaris and about 80% of us will have them at one point in our lives.. Well, I have the solution to help rid of those annoying little things! Surprisingly, the answer is VERY simple! Exfoliating with a good body scrub two to three times per week, in the area, to rid of dry and dead skin and moisturizing with a heavy moisturizer one to two times per day&#8230;&#8230;.and VOILA!! They are GONE!
