Random Beauty Tips

This are some of beauty tips that I also maintain in myself for a long time. Some of my DIY blogs are also my routines that I already shared to you my lovely readers. So this time, simple but effective beauty tips that you can try.


::. To remove puffiness from the eyelids, massage a drop of very fresh Castor oil on to them.

::.To cool your eyes, make eye pads using thick slices of cucumber. Another option is to use cotton pads soaked in cold milk. Lie down and place them on your closed eyes and relax for a while.

::. To lighten dark circles under your eyes, wrap a grated raw potato in cheesecloth and apply to eyelids for 15-20 minutes. Wipe off the residue and apply an eye cream.


::. Need to Exfoliates? You can use Brown Sugar!

::. Big Pores? Dab some ice cubes on your face it will helps to tighten your pores.

::. Wrinkles? All you do is cut a grape in half and gently crush it on your face and neck. Make sure that you get the "crows-feet" and the lines around your mouth. Leave it on for twenty minutes or so and rinse with tepid water and pat dry.


::. To prevent your lips from chapping, use hot water on your lips and then apply a mixture of Vaseline and honey. Apply this mixture about three times a week.

::. To prevent your lips from drying you can use a ground mixture or rose petals and milk butter.


::. If you have no time to shampoo your hair before going out, then brush 1 tablespoon of talcum powder or corn flour through your hair. Try this out first when you are not in hurry to make sure that it works the way you want.

::. To prevent hair loss you should have a biotin rich drink. Blend bananas with honey, yogurt and low fat milk. Drink this for a few weeks.

::. While blow drying and setting your hair, blow-dry at hot on the roots of the hair. Roll your hair inwards or outwards at the ends. To improve the setting make sure the ends are evenly rolled in or rolled out. Heat the hair for a second and then let it cool. This process of setting the hair will last longer and make your hair look beautiful.

::.To condition your hair, after shampooing your hair take some conditioner on your palm and rub it with both hands. Apply from the hair shaft moving downwards. Do not apply on your scalp. Rinse your hair after 5 minutes.

::.To add extra shine and glow to your hair add 2 tablespoons of malt vinegar. Use it as a last rinse and towel dry your hair.


::. Crack heels? Put some lotion on your feet as moisturizer and cover with socks over night. It will help to restore moisture.


::. To delay age spots on your hand, use a piece of lemon and rub all over your hand, before washing. This will delay onset of age-spots.

::. Put hand lotion for smooth and soft feeling.


To whiten your nails, try these:

::. Use a common whitening toothpaste. It's just as easy as achieving a pearly white smile and will take away any stains and shine up your nails.

::. Soak your nails in water with lemon juice or lemon slices. The lemon acts as an astringent and will strip away stains. Once your hands are dry, you'll only need to put on a couple of coats of a clear topcoat.


::.Sea salt removes dry, flaky, dead skin.

Wet body,(or any area)apply a couple of tablespoons of sea salt, then GENTLY massage with a wet washcloth or fingers.

After one or two minutes,wash it by cold
You can do this maximum once per week.

::. Don't forget to put lotion with sunscreen!

Perfumes/Body Splash:

::. For long lasting scent, put some lotion with the same scent of your perfume or cologne or you can use unscented one, then layer it with your scent.

::. Spritz your scent where there's a heart beat (e.g wrist and neck) for the smell stay even for overnight!

::. It is not advisable to put your scent on your wrist and rub it with another wrist, it will make the perfume evaporates quickly.

and that's it ladies!
Hope you enjoy some of my beauty tips!

DIY: Thinning hair Remedy and awards!

Do you suffer from dandruff? hair loss? hair fall and thinning of the hair and looking for remedy?
Hair loss and baldness are problems of many people like me. All of these problems are cause of excessive use of shampoo, hair treatments, hair styling and pollution. Hair is the crowning glory of us ladies so we need to take care of it or else we ended up with bald spot and dry hair. I will share to you some advice and recipe for these problems.

You need: (depend on how long your hair was)

Aloe Vera
Fresh Coconut Milk (alternative: Virgin Coconut Oil)
Kalamansi Juice (alternative: Lemon)
Mortar and Pestle
Hair Cap or Hair wrap

First, we need to grind the Aloe Vera using the mortar and pestle, grind it until it's juice came out. Then squeeze some calamansi and mix it with the coconut milk. After that, put the grinded aloe vera in the calamansi and coconut milk mixture and mix it together.

Apply the mixture on your scalp specially the part that has dandruff and baldspot, after that apply to your hair. Put hair cap for the mixture will be absorb by the scalp and hair, leave it for 30 mins. Wash your hair thoroughly.

Make it a habit:

Mix the shampoo with water, so that the shampoo can't washed all the hair moisture.
Strong shampoo can cause baldness and hair fall.
Don't use products with ammonia
Don't over use hair iron
Hot oil is must but only once in a two months (I'm using Lipostrale from Watson)

DIY: Anti-cellulite scrub

Many of us girls having this problem the freaking CELLULITE!!! which is so ugly when you wear shorts or miniskirt. Honestly I have cellulite on my legs and its unflattering seeing dimples on your skin. I don't want to waste my money buying anti-cellulite products which is claiming its effectiveness after 4 months using the product or going to beauty clinic for some Endermologie. I'm a budget friendly person and I prioritized what is needed than what I want. So, I found this recipe for a month and I give it a try, and it works! My cellulite are barely to see and my skin more toned than before.

Coffee scrub

Caffeine is a major ingredient in effective treatments to get rid of cellulite. This is because caffeine has the properties to constrict blood vessels, making the skin appear tighter. A simple way to utilize this ingredient is to grab your jar of coffee and make it your coffee scrub. Here is a simple cellulite treatment to try at home.

1. Go into your kitchen and grab a can of instant coffee.

2. Place at least two cups of coffee into a bowl or dish and put also some seasalt which is known for anti-oxidant

3. Head for a warm shower or bath. This will help the caffeine penetrate deep into your skin.

4. With circular motions, gently rub the coffee grounds on areas which have cellulite.

5. Rinse and you're done. You will notice smoother firmer skin right away.

A more advanced technique is listed below:

1. Spread some newspaper on your bathroom floor.

2. Mix about a quarter-cup of warm used coffee grounds with a tablespoon or so of olive oil. Stand on the paper and massage the coffee mixture to cellulite areas using your hands or a loofah mitt. Massage in circular motions. Don’t worry if a lot of the coffee mixture falls to the floor; enough will stick to your skin to do the trick.

3. Wrap the area in plastic wrap and allow to remain on for several minutes.

4. Remove wrap and brush off excess coffee mixture. Shower with warm water.

Repeat twice a week for best results.

Cellulite massage

Along with advanced cellulite creams, electronic massagers are now proving to get rid of cellulite. But before you spend major bucks on a massager, here's an easy massage trick to try at home. It really works!

Cellulite Massager

1. Use a this Cellulite massager at home.

2. Gentle massage cellulite areas such as buttocks or thighs in a circular motion.

3. Spend 5-10 minutes on each area.

4. Do this brush massage daily to get rid of cellulite by loosing trapped fat cells. The brush massage will help circulate the fat and spread it out evenly underneath your skin. Soon you will have smoother looking skin!

Cellulite Massager

You can also give this a try: Lemon juice w/ cayenne pepper.

This diet article begins like every good diet article: before you start a lemon juice and cayenne pepper diet, you should check with your doctor to make sure it's okay for you to lose weight. You will probably lose a few pounds on a lemon juice and cayenne pepper diet, so it's important that you are a little bit overweight before you start this diet.

This is a simple diet, and one you should not follow for any more than two weeks at a time because your body will need more nutrients after that period of time. The diet is extremely inexpensive, so you won't need to buy any expensive supplements or food plans. The lemon juice and cayenne pepper diet is a detoxifying diet that is primarily used to cleanse the body and provide a quick start for weight loss or a more nutritious weight loss plan.

The Menu

The menu for the lemon juice and cayenne pepper diet is easy. Prepare the following concoction and drink it six to twelve times per day for the duration of the diet:

2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice or lime juice

2 tablespoons real maple syrup

1/10 of a teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1. oz. water, preferably distilled or bottled water.
That's it. Just mix all the ingredients well, drink the mix, and repeat up to 12 times a day for up to two weeks. You should see the weight start to drop off after the first few days.

This week I'm going to try this 2 anti-cellulite recipe at the same time.

For those don't want messy things and have money to spend here's recommended products for you

::. Murad
::. Nivea Goodbye cellulite
::. Revita Shape
::. Revitol
::. Body shape
::. Cellex
:: Cellutone

and many more...

hope this will help to solve your problem and mine too! hehe.

I will post the result after 1 week after trying those 2 recipe!

Experimenting make up #2 and giveaway!

We don't have a class today again due to AH1N1 scare at our school, glad that I had the rest of the day to check out my babies (make up)! So sad that my favorite lipstick is almost gone and need to buy another, but since cosmetics right now is not on my budget I need to create another experiment for me to have this shade last till I have the money to buy another one. The good thing was I found my Body Shop's glitter pout! It's almost out of mind that I have this item... too focused to my new items hehe...

So here's the experiment:

The body shop glitter pout
This is somewhat solid lipgloss
This is my Maybelline's Lacy Beige, now you see how terribly I need to buy few new things

This is the look of lacy beige on my lips
and my nose is widely open have you see any booger? lolz!

The result! I need to put some hint of pink from another lipstick to make it more to life
My lacy beige and glitter pout alone is very pale and barely to notice

Look on my lips...

are they the same??

that's it!
