My Top 10 Beauty Secrets

audrey-hepburn-quotes-beauty1So I was asking my beautiful friends and followers what posts they would like to see. You all came up with amazing suggestions and I’m slowly getting my way through them! I was asked my the lovely Mariah, you can find here blog here, to do my top 10 beauty secrets. They are more tips than secrets but let’s get into it

 

 

 

 

 

No.1

This is a nail related tip. If your nails are feeling weak and brittle then instead of going out and buying treatments just soak with nails in some virgin olive oil for 10 minutes every night for a week and they will back up to scratch in no time at all!

No.2

Stay away from the metal! Try and avoid buying the hair ties with the metal on them. Over time it can rip and damage your hair leading to frizz and breakage.

No.3

Use a silk or satin pillow case. It causes less friction on your hair and face. This can help with avoiding those pre-mature wrinkles and waking up with frizzy damaged hair.

No. 4

Keep your lip balm and hand cream next to your bed. If your like me and constantly forget to do the little things then leave them next to your bed. My mind seems to think “they are there, might as well use them”.

No.5

Throw away those expensive spot treatments. If they work for you then great! However I find good old Tea tree oil works amazingly on those pesky spots. It reduces them over night and I kinda like the smell! You can also have it handy for other things. Those who have piercings, we all know how easily they can get infected. Pop a drop of Tea tree oil on it when you feel it getting sore and it will be gone in no time.

No.6

Eye cream! Start early with the eye cream I have been a carer for the elderly for over a 2 years now and they are constantly telling me to start with the eye cream. It prevents pre-mature wrinkles, it takes 30 seconds and you can get some really inexpensive ones. What have you got to lose??

No.7

Cut your hair! This may seem like an obvious one. If your constantly applying heat or bleach to your hair then you need a good trim every month or so. Don’t hold on to those locks. In the long run your hair is going to look so much more healthier. You don’t have to pay for it ether. I trim mine myself and I haven’t had any disasters yet. You can search for tutorials on YouTube.

No.8

Have a lighter handy. No I don’t smoke. Lighters are amazing at softening eyeliner pencils. Instead of forking out ££ for an expensive eyeliner just melt the top of a cheapo one for no more than 3 seconds and it will be pigmented, soft and go on beautifully! My sister taught me that one. Thanks Becky!

No.9

White eyeliner pencil. We all want bright, awake and refreshed looking faces and white eyeliner is brilliant for that. Instead of using black swipe on some white eyeliner onto your waterline and also the inner corners of your eyes.

No.10

Last but not least, SMILE! As the beautiful Beyonce says “A woman is most beautiful when she smiles”

I hope you found some of these useful and Id LOVE to see what your beauty secrets are!!

Have a beautiful day xxx

  1. Tee Tree Oil is great, but it can be really potent. I like to use the ones that are mixed with another oil like lavender or vitamin E. Otherwise, it has burned my skin on its own.

    The Olive Oil trick does not work on my nails, but it does make my cuticles nice. I swear my Nailtiques Formula 2. It transformed my nails from brittle and peeling to strong and long.

    Great tips!

  5. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask
    if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center
    yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my
    thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing but it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually
    lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or

  8. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
