Beauty Tips & Tricks

There are a lot of remedies to treat your skin. But which one is the best? There are so many products, treatments and tips, but what works? If visit the spa it can be quite expensive. So I will give you some beauty tips and tricks you can easily do at home. Believe me, you will feel like you went to a real spa!

Good for soothing and clearing the skin.

For a smooth skin it’s important to eat healthy. In this case the oatmeal is not meant to be eaten, but to be used on your face! It’s a wonderful way to calm, sooth and soften your skin. Oatmeal contains beta glucan, a soluble fiber that creates a thin, moisture-retaining film on the surface of the skin.

How to use it:
Place a handful of whole oats in a clean washcloth and use a rubber band to secure it. Next, immerse it in a sinkful of warm water and squeeze in the washcloth above a holder for four or five times. Once the water is cloudy and blended with the oats, take this blended water and splash it on your face. Now let your face air-dry. Don’t rinse your face afterwards! (If you want to towel dry your face, pat as gently as possible.)

Improves hair's resilience and luster.

How to do it:
Whisk together 1 egg, 2 tablespoons coconut oil (rich in moisturizing fats), and 2 tablespoons sesame oil. Apply the mixture to dry hair and wrap a hot, moist towel around your head. Relax for five to 10 minutes. Without wetting hair first, work in a handful of shampoo, and then rinse and condition your hair. It helps the hair to recreate itself. Result: It maintains the texture of your hair by the presence of the important elements. It creates soft and smooth hair. Apply this mask two times a week for better results.

Coffee Grounds
To reduce your cellulite.

Many people suffer from cellulite. The cosmetic industry delivers very expensive creams and products but it doesn’t have to be expensive.
Cellulite can be treated with coffee ground. It’s very important that you do not use decaffeinated coffee because it is the caffeine that reduces the cellulite.

The secret behind the success of coffee as a remedy for cellulite is the presence of caffeine. This substance has the ability to break down fat deposits which is the major reason for cellulite. Blood flows and the circulation is stimulated by the caffeine and the broken fats and toxins are easily washed away by the body because of an increased blood flow.

How to use it:
All you need is a cheap hand lotion and caffeinated coffee. You have to grind the coffee into dust and mix the coffee grind with the hand lotion. As a result you will have a cream. Rub it into you cellulite areas and leave it for a minute. Rinse it off in the shower. Do this every day and you will see those areas get smoother and firmer.

Caster oil
The beauty solution.

Caster oil is good for almost everything. It makes your lashes grow longer and it can help treat skin problems like oily skin. It can even be used to heal skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis.
The oil can also do wonders for your hair, skin, lips, and nails. Castor oil is a not so well known beauty solution. This highly emollient oil is naturally rich in antioxidants and works as a deep conditioner to heal both skin and hair.

How to use:
To use, apply a light layer of this inexpensive beauty aid to your eyelashes and eyebrows at night before bed to help thicken the hair and aid in the growth of long, healthy lashes. You can also use it as a deep-conditioning hair treatment by applying a few drops of oil to wet hair and letting it be for 15 minutes or so. Apply a few drops to your nails and cuticles before bed to soften them and prevent cracking.

Avocado Oil
helps balance your skin and protect it from further damage.

Do you hate your oily skin and want to get rid of it? Did you try everything already, but did nothing help? Try avocado oil! Avocado oil helps the abundant fatty acids and balances the skin's moisture levels. The antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E help protect skin from further damage.

How to use it:
Combine equal parts avocado oil and evening-primrose oil (which supports collagen synthesis with its gamma linoleic acid) in a sealable bottle and shake to blend. Massage five or six drops into clean skin, and then cover your face with a warm washcloth for a minute to help the oils sink in. Leave the avocado oil on your skin for a maximum of 30 minutes. Rinse with tepid water and pat dry.

Oil Pulling
Improve your health, and makes your teeth white and healthy.

Oil Pulling is a simple, inexpensive method to Improve your health. First thing in the morning gargle with sunflower oil for 20 minutes, rinse mouth with sea salt water. It makes your teeth bling. The oil pulls all mucous, bacteria and toxins from your body through your saliva. According to Ayurvedic medicine, mucous is a poison that must be removed.

How to use it:
You take oil, preferable sunflower or sesame and put approximately 1 tablespoon in your mouth, tilt your chin up slightly and proceed to swish, squish, squirt and chomp the oil in your mouth for 20 minutes. Supposedly, you will begin to salivate uncontrollably and the oil will become like a foamy whitish liquid. Then you spit, rinse your mouth out really well with water and then brush your teeth. That's all there is to it.
