There are times when brushing your teeth just doesn’t cut it and you need something quick to get them a little whiter without the hassle of leaving to go to the store. Try mashing up a strawberry and mixing it with baking soda. Apply the mixture to your teeth and let it sit for 5 minutes before rinsing.
Cucumbers for Puffy Eyes
You’ve seen it in spa ads but may have not really thought about what it’s actually for. Cucumber is used to reduce under-eye puffiness and dark circles. To reduce under eye puffiness, simply place the cucumber slices under your eyes for about 20 minutes. Thanks to the ascorbic acid, the cucumber will help to reduce water tension. As for dark circles, simply place fresh cucumber slices over your eyelids covering the surrounding area. Now just sit back and relax for about 20 minutes. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
If mascara isn’t already your best friend, it certainly will be after you learn that you can use it on your hairline. You heard correct, as long as you have the right color, you can use your mascara to easily hide thinning edges or even gray hairs. Use the wand to lightly coat the hairs around the hairline. Just as it does with your eyelashes, it will thicken the existing hairs making the hairline appear fuller. If you have gray hairs, simply apply a light coat of mascara. Make sure you don’t attempt to brush the areas with the mascara so it doesn’t smudge.
