Are you trying to keep yourself looking as good as possible, but you are constrained by a budget? There’s a bunch of household items that can help to enhance your look without going through too much trouble. In this article, we’ll be discussing exactly what you can do with things around the house to make your look shine.
- Do you want a mask that will nourish your face and leave it smooth and healthy? Try combining the following. Take one teaspoon of plain yogurt and 2-3 tablespoons of orange juice. Mix it in a bowl until it forms a paste, and then apply it to your face. The Vitamin C found in orange juice can do wonders for your complexion! Vitamin C is a necessary nutrient in the body due to the fact that it helps us to form collagen, a connective substance that is found in all parts of the body. Apply the mask for 5 minutes before washing it off.
- The cucumber trick is always a classic beauty move. Take a cucumber and grate it. Cover it, and place it in your freezer for right around 5 minutes. Take all but 2 teaspoons of the cucumber and mix it with plain yogurt. Next, take 2 pieces of surgical gauze and soak them in cold water. Take those 2 teaspoons of cucumber you set aside and place them in the centers of the pieces of gauze. Ball the two pieces of gauze into a teabag shape and place them over your eyes, applying the yogurt-cucumber mix to your face as a mask. In fifteen minutes, wash the substance off, and your face will be revitalized!
- Do you have puffy eyes? There can be many reasons that your eyes may be inflamed. It’s important to keep your body well hydrated, ensuring that you are getting enough water throughout the day. Avoiding coffee and tea can also be helpful when trying to keep puffiness down. Cucumber slices and potato slices placed across the eyes can also help to reduce swelling and discoloration under the eyes. Keeping your head held high while sleeping with pillows can cause fluids to not build up around your eyes, which is important if you are trying to rid yourself of puffiness.
- Have chapped lips? Simple petroleum jelly can work wonders when it comes to revitalizing your lips. It is also helpful to exfoliate your lips around once per week by using a toothbrush on them, helping to remove dead cells.
