Eight Beauty Secrets Every Woman Should Know

Oct 9, 2019 | Beauty & Fashion, skincare | 19 comments

Having great skin is the epitome of beauty in which every woman wanted to achieve and maintain. However, we all know it takes time, discipline and can cost you an arm and a leg. But did know you there are few things lying around in your kitchen that can substitute those costly treatments? Let us find out!

Exfoliating with sugar

Exfoliation is a process that deeply cleanses your skin and removes dead skin cells leaving you with a newer and refined skin. It also improves blood circulation and reduces skin discoloration, pigmentation, and wrinkles. It is advised to exfoliate two to three times a week for normal and combination skin and once a week for sensitive skin. Don’t go overboard exfoliating as it actually thins the skin which might cause breakout and skin irritation.

Ice

Rub your face with an ice cube to improve circulation and tighten pores. Surprisingly, it also helps to shrink pimples and relieve puffy eyes!

Lemon

You will surely love it even more because it is rich in Vitamin C and citric acid that helps lighten dark spots and pigmentation. Lemon also has a natural antibacterial component that cures acne and blackheads. Furthermore, you can also use it as a teeth whitener, nail strengthener and even brighten our hair color! Guess we need to stock more lemons on our refrigerator!

Potatoes

As if we need more reasons to love potatoes! It’s rich in minerals like Potassium, Sulphur, and Phosphorous, which offer excellent beauty benefits. Applying raw potatoes helps to control and prevent pimples and cure skin warts. Got dark circles? Lay down and place grated raw potato over closed eyes. Let it sit for twenty to twenty-five minutes and rinse it with cool water. Do this regularly until the dark circles are reduced.

Toothpaste

The last beauty secret but you’ve probably heard this one from your Titas. Don’t be too quick to write it off. Most toothpaste includes ingredients that can cause pimples to dry out and swelling and redness to subside. baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, menthol, essential oils, triclosan. Apply a tiny amount on the affected area and leave it on overnight.
