The first was to put 2 tablespoons in your bath to help dry skin. I have always had very dry skin & I have never liked lotion. So I put the vinegar in & soaked for a good 15minutes. Results: I actually do feel a little softer! I think it will take a couple of times of using it in my bath to really work though.
Okay second thing was using baking soda & water as an exfoliater. Well it sis just that...scrubbed! I'm not sure how my skin is supposed to feel after, but I probably will do this a couple times a week to see what happens.
So all of this has really got me thinking about my health & beauty & just feeling good about myself all the time. I have begun working out again using one those big bouncing balls! I love that thing! My sister bought it but she never uses it so I thought well I could use it! The core ball came with a booklet of great workouts to do with it too, so I am going to start using it on a daily basis.
To be honest I don't think I treat my body very well at all! People always ask me how I get my hair to look so great & shiny or how is my skin so clear? I do nothing to it! I use the cheap shampoo & I usually don't even condition my hair. I have dry skin so I suppose that helps not getting any pimples or acne.
Here are a few tricks that I so when I beautify myself.
- I brush my teeth with baking soda before I use tooth paste so I can have a brighter & whiter smile. I can't tell you how many people ask me what I do. That's the trick! My Mom made us use it when I was young & I began to pick up the habit again last summer & now I have peraly whites!. Thanks Mum!
- A super easy trick for getting those perfect summer waves is right after you blow dry your hair, twist it all in a tight bun on top of your head and wrap a hairband around it to make it stay. I usually keep it up while I do my makeup so about 20minutes or so. Take it down & you look like you used a curling iron.
- The eyelash curler is my baby! I have no idea what I would do without it! My cousin Rachel actually taught me this trick. Hold your eyelash curler up to your blow dryer for about 5 seconds on high or until its warm. It works just like a curling iron & the curl in your lashes will stay a lot longer!
- All summer I have been meaning to get outside & I just haven't been! I am super whitey over here! My sister Shea got all the cherokee/spanish skin. So for all of you whiteys out there I say to use Jergens Natural Glow. I just started using it this year for the first time & it has been my summer staple & life saver. I usually put it on once a day. Oh and make sure you wash your hands good after or the middle of your fingers will turn orange!! No thank you Lindsey Lohan!
