Five More Beauty Secrets That Won’t Break the Bank
Lois W. Stern
6. Brighter looking eyes
Purchase: A white or peach colored eyeliner pencil.
Directions: Apply the liner to the inner lower rim of each eyeâjust where your lashes begin. It makes the whites of your eyes appear whiter and your eyes brighter.
7. A glowing complexion
I’m not a great believer in fancy priced miracle-in-a-jar products, but am impressed enough with the ingredients in this low cost product to share it here.
40 Carrots Carrot + C Vitamin Serum is a lightweight gel that features beta-carotene, Retinol (Vitamin A) and Vitamin C, and is fortified with protein-rich soy and antioxidant-rich carrot, mango, and apricot oil. Available at your local drug store, Amazon.com and several other .com sites.
8. Flawlessly smooth skin
Most women have some soft downy facial hair, even if it’s not readily apparent. Want to make it disappear – safely, easily and painlessly?
Purchase: A little battery operated gizmo – about the length of a ball point pen, and not much thicker – available at your local drug store.
Directions: Turn it on and gently draw the defuzzer upward against the hair growth. Yes, the fuzz will grow back in a few weeks, but it takes less than a minute to repeat the process to keep you fuzz-free.
9. While we’re talking about unsightly hair, purchase a small scissor with blunt points, that’s made especially for removing nasal hairs. Use it often to clip out straggling hairs as they reappear. A magnifying mirror is a great help for close up work. The blunt points are essential to prevent injuries.
10. Smooth, unchapped hands and feet
Directions: For ten minutes, soak your hands and feet in warm water combined with a cup of milk and a teaspoon of olive oil. The lactic acid in the milk will help you get rid of unwanted dead skin cells, while the olive oil will soothe the skin. Rinse and apply a rich moisturizing lotion. Wear cotton gloves and cotton socks overnight. In the morning you’ll enjoy softer hands and feet than you had ever thought possible.
