Bright Side always wants to help their followers find solutions to all possible problems. So in this article, there are some effective tips and tricks that can help you stay impeccable when it matters most.
The smooth, radiant skin effect
Baking is a makeup technique that allows us to get a healthy skin tone and get rid of dark circles under our eyes. To do this, powder is applied to the face with a wet sponge to help set the makeup.
There’s one more secret: instead of using a translucent powder that, as a rule, costs a fortune, use baby powder. Yes, you read that right! It’s as good as any other professional product, and with this powder, your makeup is going to look incredible. All aspects of the process are described here.
A white smile
A white smile is an essential part of a flawless look. Unfortunately, sweets and coffee have a bad influence on the color of tooth enamel. But fortunately, there’s an effective method you can use to whiten your teeth at home. All you’ll need are some activated charcoal pills.
Grind a couple of the pills, dip your toothbrush in water and then in the powder, and brush your teeth using circular movements for 5 minutes. You’ll see the result almost immediately — your teeth will become brighter after 2 weeks of doing the procedure!
Beautiful nails without yellowing
Even if your nails’ natural color is hidden under polish most of the time, it’s still unpleasant to realize you have yellowing nails. If you want them to become whiter, you’ll need some baking soda. Baking soda is good for our nails for in different aspects: it softens cuticles and polishes the surface of the nails without damaging them.
You’ll need 2 tsp of hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 tsp of baking soda. Mix all the ingredients, apply the mixture to your nails, and wait for 5 minutes. Then wash your hands. If your nails are still too yellow, you’ll have to repeat the process (but not on the same day) to achieve the desired result.
An alternative to Botox to deal with wrinkles between the eyebrows
This method may look strange, but many people claim it works. If you have wrinkles between your eyebrows and it bothers you, try to put medical tape over the wrinkles and leave it there while you sleep. Conducting this experiment takes barely any time or effort at all. And if it works, you’ll save a lot of money on Botox — it isn’t cheap!
Strong and healthy nails
There are lots of ways to make your nails look healthier. For example, castor oil boosts their growth, vitamin A restores split nails, and almond oil makes them stronger.
If your nails are weak, use a lemon from your fridge. Lemon juice is considered to be one of the best natural treatments to strengthen and recover your nails. Soak them in lemon juice for 2 weeks and watch them become healthier and healthier.
Get rid of dark circles and bags under your eyes.
Besides popular patches, there’s a product that can help you get rid of dark circles and bags under your eyes. We’re talking about…potatoes! You’ll only need to cut 2 slices or grind a chilled one in the fridge using a grater. Next, soak some cotton pads in its juice and apply it to your eyes. Perform this 2 times a week and you’ll see that your face will look healthier.
Lighter underarm skin
Wearing a dress can expose a lot of skin. If you’re self-conscious of the darkness of your underarms, you can use this simple and safe recipe.
You’ll need 1 tbsp of honey and 1 tsp of grated activated charcoal. Mix the ingredients, apply them to your armpits, leave the mixture there for 20 minutes, and then wash it off with warm water (use the leftover mixture as a face mask). It’s recommended to repeat the procedure 2-3 times a week.
Forget about swollen feet.
If you experience this symptom, we strongly recommend you visit a doctor first to identify the cause. As for natural remedies that can help you get rid of swollen feet, we think that this parsley mixture works the best as it effectively removes excess fluid from the body.
To prepare it at home, you’ll need fresh parsley, its root, and a blender. Wash and grind the plant, then put the mixture in a thermos, pour 17 fluid ounces of hot water in it, and leave it to infuse all night. In the morning, you’ll have to strain and drain the infusion. Drink it 3 times a day. Drink the infusion for 2 days, then take a break for 3 more. Try this method and your legs will start feeling way more comfortable, especially while wearing heels at important events.
