Re: Beauty Secrets???

Ditto on the aspirin mask...works great....dissolve 3-5 aspirins in a tiny amount of aloe vera gel preferrably, or water, just enough to cover the tablets---wait about 5-10 min for it dissolve it; squeeze out a 50 cent size dollop of Queen Helene's Mint Julip Mask and finger mix in the dissolved aspirin/gel mix; apply; allow to dry; rinse; follow with a homemade toner mix of apple cider vinegar (1part)/water(3parts); rinse with clear water again Makes skin smoooooooooooooth as baby's bottom. The aspirin mask is great for oily skin and can be used 2-3 weekly for oily skin, but only once a week for non-oily as the mask is very drying so if you have dry skin you need to moisturize well.

I usually use it as a scrub. Just dissolve a half a dozen or so plain uncoated aspirin in some water. Then scrub. Or mix with cleanser and scrub.

You can apply it as a mask, but it won't stick as it dries. Turns to fine white powder that falls off and makes you sneeze. So many people mix it with other things like moisturizer to help it stick. Or you can brush off the excess and leave the residue on over night. I think it is more beneficial the longer you leave it on.

Re: Beauty Secrets???

I've read about the aspirin masks.. I'll have to give it a try! I also really want to try out blow-drying my eyelashes as well now ! I also really like the Queen Helene Mint Julep mask.. it makes your skin feel super fresh!

For eyelashes, what I also do is always keep spare mascara wands around (clean ones that you can find at any drugstore). I use them to sweep over any clumps that can form and it makes them perfect.

Another neat thing is that after you paint your nails you can put them under cool running water from the faucet to help them dry faster.. weird as it sounds, it doesn't make it mess up at all! Just make sure not to put the water on really high or where it's splashing, just a normal stream of water.

Re: Beauty Secrets???

Occassionally, I have a few zits that even after I pop them, they seem to fill up again. I pop it if it has a head on it, then, clean with alcohol (not all over my face just the zit) and cover with a bandaid before bed. Next morning, wulah! it's gone. The bandaid absorbs all the fluid and since it is covered it can't get a scab on it and fill back up.

I know, kinda gross! It works though!!

Also, I use baby powder on my face and just a concealer if I need it. No foundation. The brush I use is one that a hair stylist uses to brush hair of the back of the neck! It's cheap and huge!

Re: Beauty Secrets???

For bigger, more plump lips I apply a lip liner that is almost exactly the same color as my lips and blend it in completely. Make sure the corners are a little more "out lined" for a more defined look, and then apply vaseline over top. I swear this makes your lips look bigger naturally. I have nice lips already but I make them look even nicer doing this. Also I like to apply vaseline to the very bottom of my eye over top of my eyeliner to give it a shiney look, it really brings out the eyes..they look more sparkly!

I used to blow dry my eyelash curler too but now I'm going to try the upwards blow drying techeque. Sounds really interesting!

Oh and for my favorite, the best moisturizer I've ever used is called Pein Tze Huang Pearl Cream from china. It makes your skin perfectly smooth and fades marks really well. I love it and it's cheap.

Re: Beauty Secrets???

The skin is very delicate round the eye area so if its hot setting you use I would think that would damage the skin

Re: Beauty Secrets???

I tried blow drying my eyelashes and it didn't do anything. Maybe it depends on the mascara? I just started using Lash Exact. It doesn't seem to be particularly wet.

Also, BTW, Queen Helene is definately available at Walgreens and I'm sure most other pharmacy chains. It's good. I used to use it before discovering the acne mask.

Speaking of plump lips...I tried that new Victoria Secret Lip Plumping gloss...doesn't work! Thank goodness I didn't spend $24 on it. Instead my friend bought a cheaper kind by Sally Hanson, she seemed to think it worked, but I didn't notice a difference on her or myself. Just makes your lips tingle. I think it's all in your head...but that's my opinion

Re: Beauty Secrets???

I have the Sally Hansen lip plumper and I like it.. not a HUGE difference or anything, and yes it definitely makes your lips tingle. It's also really glossy so I think that it makes your lips look bigger b/c of THAT. I think it does help though.. but my lips are already the size I want.. so I'm not sure how it would work for somebody wanting their lips bigger.

Beauty Secrets - Keeps eye makeup on!

I'm new to this whole board thing and originally was looking under the allergy section. Anyway, due to my allergies, I always have to keep my eyes "moist" but I hated putting in eye drops because it would make my eye makeup run. Then I found a really cool eye spray. It's called Nature's Tears and you just mist your eyes with it! It really works and your makeup doesn't budge! All of my friends who wear contact lens use this now instead of rewetting drops.
It comes in a small canister that you can just toss in your purse, car etc. Just thought I'd pass along my newest "beauty tip"!

Re: Beauty Secrets???

I did not read this on the board and hope it is a beauty tip for some, I just heard about it some months ago. If you have thin eyebrows use your eye powder brown or black to make them look thicker. Use the brush that you use to put your eye makeup on with. I recently ready that if you use Elmer's glue on your face (pimples) it would pull the head out, also Cologate toothpaste.

Re: Beauty Secrets???

I tend to get buildup from product use in my hair. I was buying that clarifying shampoo from Bath & Body but they stopped making.
I use baking soda in my hair to remove buildup. Cost me less than a buck for the box. works better than any clarifying shampoo.

How do you use the baking soda to remove buildup? Do you just rub your scalp with it, add it to your shampoo, or how?
