7- Dry-Brush Detox the Right Way
With this secret in your arsenal, you can kiss spas goodbye.
The body’s skin is resilient, which is why treatments should be tougher.
Worry not! This will not damage your skin, on the contrary, it will pamper it.
8- How to Get Rid of Cellulite with a Homemade Coffee Scrub
The most horrible word in the world.
No one wants to have it, but it’s as common as that lock of hair that doesn’t want to get brushed.
Avoiding it would be ideal, but when it’s already late the solution is coffee, just, you know, not a cup.
Victoria Dawson Hoff, an editor at the prestigious magazine, Elle, states that “Cellulite enemy #1 is caffeine, which tightens and provides antioxidants to the skin when applied topically. When applied religiously, it has been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite—especially over time.”
This anti-cellulitis coffee-based cream is super effective. To apply them you need:
- Coconut oil
- Sea salt or sugar
- Brush (you could also Dry-Bush)
9- DIY Wax Hair Removing Sugaring Wax
I have nothing against hair follicles, but just like you I’d prefer not to have them in certain parts…
For that, I added to my routine this sugar-based hair removing wax.
The best part is that it does not redden the skin once applied!
No beauty routine is complete without a banging hairstyle, so…
10- Tucked Braid Updo
This gorgeous Braid Updo only requires diving your hair into three sections.
Look beautiful from behind and highlight your natural features with this simple hairstyle.
The author of this nifty hairstyle mentions that:
“Don’t be scared off if your hair is a little shorter or a little longer than Emma’s (model). In think this style could work for a lot of lengths!”
11- Romantic Side Braid Hair Tutorial
This braid is even easier than the one above.
Ideal for girls with long hair that do not want to stress-induced brushing sessions.
“Throw a spin your style by adding a heavy side-part or add a braid to one side of the part. Then, gather the rest of your hair into a low side-ponytail, braid the pony, and twist it up around the band. Secure it with pins.”
This recommendation was made in the Elle magazine, by the renowned star stylist, Matt Fugate, when speaking about braided hair.
Here you have it; a quick pretty braid for your daily needs.
Now you might be thinking “well what about nails?” Fret not:
12- Matching Lipstick and Nails
