    Do you have a beauty secret you wouldn't mind sharing with your friends?

    A great one in winter for dry chapped hands is to lather on vaseline, put on rubber gloves while doing some housework at least one-half hour and you have baby bottom smooth hands!
    So how about sharing yours?

    Every weekend I take three hours to pamper myself. Sometimes coloring my hair, painting my nails, treating my face, etc. But I always use a heavy conditioner that makes my hair silky for four days. It really healthens my scalp and makes my hair so nice that I don't need to shower for two days.

    Hi Jackie - I normally don't answer too many questions but your's caught my eye.  Many years a go a good friend and I were discussing facial cleansing products and the high costs associated with them.  That's when she told me she uses high-quality shampoos and selects the category best suited to her skin type.  Another words, individuals suffering from oily-skin use the shampoo designed for oily hair and the same for dry skin.  After checking out the ingredients in quality shampoos, I found her to be right.  The same ingredients incorporated into those high priced skin cleansers are in the shampoos.  I have relied on this ever since and have experienced wonderful results.  The key is to chose a quality shampoo.  The money savings is amazing when you consider the average size of a bottle of shampoo.

    Regards and have a wonderful day.

    Drink plenty of water.  Our body is 75% water and we lose this every day. Water keeps you hydrated and your body feeling better, looking healthy.  Sleep is needed also.  Your food also plays a role on your overall look and health.  I do use a moisturizer every night and light facial cream every morning.

    Sharing is caring! We all should use natural and organic products for scrubbing our faces & bodies. For facials, we should rely on home-made remedies as they not only rejuvenate our skin but also keep it supple and soft. A healthy lifestyle, a happy state of mind and a positive outlook all definitely play a big role in our appearances!

      For even skin-tone, make a homemade facial by mixing the sufficient finely ground chickpea flour, right quantity of pure milk, a little fresh lemon juice and few drops of natural rose-water. Apply on face for 15-20 mins & wash off. Do this twice

    I've learned that rest and periodic relaxation do wonders for your appearance and your disposition. Everyone's clock is different. As you get older you may need less than 8 hours sleep but you should get more than four each night. Your brain needs a period of rest to rejuvenate itself.
    I've also found that a relaxing bath or shower can improve your ability to get restful sleep at night. Nothing makes me feel better than a good soak in a tub with bath salts, bubbles, candles and a glass of vino. Even putting scented bath salts in your shower can lift your spirits or help you relax depending on the scents.

    Almond oil is my beauty secret. I apply it after a shower and it moisturizes and nourishes my skin with vitamin E. Then I run my fingers through my wet hair and it adds just enough conditioner to keep my hair from being dry. It soaks in, leaves my skin and hair feeling great, has no scent, and I only need one bottle to do all that.

    I don't have many beauty secrets but recently on pinterest i found one that actually resulted in good results.  I take half a lemon and pour a little bit of honey on it, then rub it on my face. It clears my complexion and gets rid of all blackheads. It is awesome and I stand by it. Caution: please put a headband on your head and move all your hair away from your face as it can get sticky with the honey.

    Spending only moderate time in the sun and quitting smoking almost guarantee a smoother skin.

    While I love spending time outdoors, whether for sports or gardening, excessive sun will dry out your skin and catch up with you very quickly from approximately your forties.

    I am not particularly anti-smoking, and although I am a former-smoker, it doesn't bother me in the least if others wish to smoke in my general vicinity. That said, smoking has also been accused of prematurely aging the smoker.

    A good friend maintains that he loves having a cigarette in the glaring African sun, so it's all about priorities, I guess.

    I do have "beauty secrets" that I don't mind sharing at all.  Eat healthy, drink lots of water, get enough sleep and plenty of fresh air.  Keep your self clean, shiny and lightly fragranced.....wear a smile, be friendly, helpful and kind. Be well-read and well-spoken....and always polite.   Keep a bounce in your step and a song in your heart.  Wear clothes that accent your positive and down play your negative......and keep your damned clothes ON, until you're sure you're in love and that he loves you.   Last, but not least....be an interesting and happy person to be around!   THAT'S a Beautiful woman!  But it's really no secret.

    Exercise, it not only helps you look good, by keeping your body in shape, it makes you feel better since your body releases endorphines when you're active. It also helps you sleep better and I've found it helps regulate your digestion which means your body is not holding on to as many toxins,

      Yes, I recommend exercise too, and brisk walking I believe helps firm skin but maybe that is because it knocks off fat. lol

    While this isn't standard fair for a beauty regimen I say smile and be kind.  Nothing lights up a plain or less than beautiful face than a smile and a kind word.  I know a lot of people who are not necessarily attractive that really are great to look at because they make you feel good to be around them.

    No make up at all, moderate sunshine, plenty of water(at least 2.5 litres ), junk food on rare occasions, plenty of sleep and as little stress as possible.
    Exercise five times a week(helped me lose 11 kgs so far and cleared pimples on my face).
    Laugh a lot, you get less frowns and wrinkles that way.

    If you get horribly tanned,then wash your face and wipe it dry.
    Take 2-3 table spoons of fresh curd,apply and leave on for 2 mins. thn rinse it off with cold water.This has immediate effects.

    If your skin is too oily,wash your face with a mild face wash after  having done the above said procedure.

    Mine is not to much of a secret but more of a nightful ritual. this method is  use To maintain  my flat iron style since my natural hair is really curly which takes a really long time to achieve the sliky smooth look and plus i dont have to put heat to my hair everyday. so what i do is a  use a leave in moisturizer ideally oil based (water is a curly head nightmare.lol)  and then i  wrap my hair around as im sure to following my hairline which  takes  the shape of my head and tie it down with a silk or satin scarf and off to sleepland i go.I wake up in the morning comb my hair down and waa- laa im done and off to school.

      Also it helps if the scarf you use is made out of satin, it wont snag and break the hair follicle. Also I've found because I have dry hair that I must moisturize every night, it doesnt absorb as much as other fabrics and helps me retain moisture.

    I haven't tried this, but a few years ago I guess it was now, I caught the tail end of some show on talk show on t.v. The host had a woman who was in her 90's on as a guest, and I kid you not, this 90+ year old woman looked like she was in her twenties. Her skin was absolutely to die for- completely wrinkle free, not a single age spot, not a crease, not a blemish. I was totally jealous since (being a few years shy of 30 myself) I STILL have acne. When the host asked her what her secret was, she said:

    "I cut up a fresh lemon every morning, and rub it on my face then and at night, and slap on some lotion. I gotta keep my skin looking good for the men!"

    I can remember her response as clear as a bell cause it made me giggle and think "Go ahead girl!"

    The best moisturizer I have ever found to use on freshly shaved legs is made by Camille Beckman, it comes in so many fantastic scents, I just love it! smile I first bought it about 10 years ago when we were out West on vacation and we took our sons to the Grand Canyon. They sold it in the gift shop there! I figured if it works in the desert, it would work anywhere, and it does! I use it all the time! smile

    I love the White Lilac scent and lately I've been using Mango Beach (just look for the little seashells on top of the container)... this stuff is AWESOME!! smile

    This answer is pretty specific, but I ALWAYS line my inner lower eyelid with white liner. This makes your eyes really pop and makes you seem more awake. When it comes to eyes, bigger is always better!
