If you’re taking the time to blow dry your hair, think about how to make it last longer. The ¾ updo; pulling all the hair from around your face up into a top knot…lightly hairspray OR spray with dry shampoo. The next morning, remove the topknot and brush your hair from roots to ends with a natural bristle brush. Voila, volume!
Bathe Cleopatra style
Hey, if it works for Madonna…if your pantry includes instant dry powdered milk, a cup of the powdered granules added to your bath soothes the skin and feels luxurious.
Gel nails that need attention now? Everyone that wears gel polish knows how removal works.
After soaking your nails with cotton wrapped in foil, use a wood manicure stick to gently lift the old gel polish off. If a spot is difficult just ignore it until it’s ready to flake off. Aggressive removal can remove the top layer of your nail. Lightly buff the surface of your nails, then soak your nails in warm oil (anything in the kitchen cupboard), and massage the oil in. It’s good to do this in the evening so it will soak in during the overnight hours when you are taking a break from hand washing.
Work those gloves
Hand washing takes a toll on hands, and disposable gloves are a perfect opportunity to boost your hand cream’s effectiveness…apply when you change gloves and end your stay-in-place or quarantine period with softer and smoother hands. Pat excess hand cream off with a clean towel when you remove the gloves, taking time to gently push back your cuticles.
The other face mask
Hey, those face masks are not doing you any good shoved in a drawer. Set them out and use them often! When you take it off your face, if it’s still moist, wrap it on heels, placing it under a pair of socks…or cut a piece to fit the back of your hand.
If you bought too many avocados, smash them up and give yourself a facial by applying to clean dry skin. Wash off with cool water when dry. Or, if you’re going to eat them all, rub the inside of the peel (where there is often some green goodness left) onto your skin!
Humidifiers are smart and skin-friendly and aren’t just for sickness. Keep one ready to use in the bedroom and use it at night for better sleep and moisture retention of your skin or to relieve dry nasal passages and stressed skin.
