Fashion Lesson #6 Household Helpers

A girl can always use all the extra help she can get when it comes to beauty.  So I found some very interesting Beauty/Personal Care pointers that I think we all can use.  Some of the items can be found around the house and others can be purchased at the salon or drug store.

1.  Hairy Situation–  Are you in a rush and no time to wash  and blow out your hair?  Do you need something to freshen your hairstyle after a workout? 

If you answered yes to either one of these questions, a Dry Shampoo might be a good resolution.  Made usually with cornstarch, these dry shampoos can absorb oil and add some pep back to your limp locks.

Two recommendations are: Naturia Dry Shampoo and  Bumble & Bumble Hair Powder.  


You can also use translucent powder or cornstarch applying it with a powder brush.  Be forewarned, you really have to work it through your hair and may not be appropriate for those with dark hair.  It may leave a grey or white finish on dark tresses.

2.  Tanning Mishap–  With warmer weather coming soon (I hope), you may want to don some self tanner to give your skin a healthy glow.  But what’s a girl to do if she notices some zebra stripes?  Try putting some Baking Soda on a loofa and buff out those stubborn streaks.

3.  Rough Around the Edges–  Do you have a problem with rough looking cuticles?  Try a rubbing a little Apricot oil on your cuticles to keep them healthy looking.

4.  Zit Zapper!  Use a dab of toothpaste to absorb oil and reduce further clogging in your pore.  Leave toothpaste on for about 15 mins and then wash off.


5.  Butt Cream, Baby!  Have you ever blown your nose so often that it becomes chapped and worn looking?  Apply a thin layer of diaper rash cream to seal in moisture and heal that scaly skin. It also helps cracked elbows and feet. I recommend Boudreaux’s Butt Paste®it works like a charm.  You can use Desitin or any other diaper rash cream as well.

6.  It’s in the Tea Leaves–  If you frequently have irritated, sensitive or puffy skin, you can steep a bag of green tea and apply it to the affected area to soothe the skin.  Be sure to drink the tea too!
