Getting Rid of Freckles:

First, see a doctor. Don’t always rely on “arbitrary” websites. However, out of your options there is lazer removal, cryogenic freezing of freckles, over the counter bleaching products. If you don’t want to mess around with sugery and potentially harmful ways just stick to covering them up with make-up.

Tips:

  • Freckles are more obvious if you have a tan. Wear sunscreen when you go outside.
  • Apply lemon juice on your face for 15 minutes and wash off. Do this 2 times a day for better results. Lemon juice can make you more sensitive to sunlight so be warned!
  • Rinse your face with sour milk or apply sour cream to your face for 15 minutes and rinse.

Cellulite – The Dimples of Doom

Don’t worry ladies because you are not the only one suffering from cellulite. About 98% of woman around the world have it. Yes, its not the most attractive and can be frustrating… that is why I’m writing this post!

Why do I have it?

There are a couple of reasons why you may have cellulite.

1) You might be over-weight. Its not the most comforting thing to here but you might just be over-weight.

2) You might need to tweak your diet slightly. You may be eating a perfectly healthy diet. However, foods that are high in sugars like juices, soda-pop (this is not a healthy drink at all), etc might be the problem.

3) Older age. When you start aging things just start to sag. 

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is when fat in your body starts to become uneven.

How can I reduce my cellulite?

1) Lose Weight in general. Losing weight doesn’t just help you get rid of those “dimples of doom” it also give you a better and healthier lifestyle. 

2) Try rubbing brewed coffee grounds onto the dimply places. Do it for a week in the morning when you wake up and in the evening when you go to sleep. You should receive results. 

3) Try Goodbye Cellulite by Nivea.

4) If those aren’t working go to your local dermatologist. The options up above will be your cheapest ways. Going to a dermatologist can get expensive. Their methods will probably work great but there are always risks. Try to avoid surgery at all costs. 

You might want to consult yourself and see how much getting rid of cellulite is to you and then move on from there.

Maybelline New York Define-A-Line Eyeliner

This is my daily eyeliner. Is pretty good. Its a good pencil eyeliner. I like the buffer at one of the ends. However, my one complaint is that it doesn’t stay sharp and that you can’t really sharpen it easily.

Maybelline New York Ultra Liner (Waterproof)

So far, I am satisfied with this product. It slides on easily and stays on a long time. It is waterproof so I found that it actually managed to stay on my eyelids after wiping them. I was happy that the brush is rather petite and made a skinny line. Overall, this is a great product! Its definitely worth a buy 😉

A Handy & Easy Skin Treatment

Your hands are probably one of the most seen parts of your body. They are also one of the most used parts of your body. They get abused daily. Here are some tips to help prevent against abused hands.

  • Warm one cup of milk in the microwave for thirty seconds (or until warm. Be carfeul it could be too hot). The milk helps to strenghten nails, gently exfoliates the dead skin and make you hands soft and smoothe.
  • Try rubbing off dead skin cells with a mixture of sea salt and lemon juice with an old toothbrush.  This will help to soften your hands and help reduce discoleration. If done, do it twice a week.
  • Washing the dishes can abuse your hands.  Try putting a little bit of olive oil or almond oil in your dish soap. 
  • Wash hands with warm water and swiftly rub you hands with a wash cloth.  Rub a mixture made of equal parts honey and olive oil. Then place hands in sepperatee plastic bags and then into cotten gloves. The heat will help the mixture soak into your skin.

These treatments can also be used on your feet 😉
