Lip Gloss Savings

Okay, I hate when I love a lip gloss and I am dangerously low on it, so dangerously low that I don't even get anything off the applicator brush!

Okay so how can I cure this tragic happening?  Simple- with water!  NO NO , DO NOT ADD WATER TO YOUR LIP GLOSS!   Just follow these directions-

Fill a glass or mug half way with water like this-


Now heat it in the microwave for 60 seconds, or until it is medium warm.  Not hot, but not luke warm.  Just like perfect ramen.  Like this-


Now put you low lip glosses into the hot water, make sure the cap or brush top is snugly tight so your lip gloss doesn't evaporate into the water... just make sure it is tight like this-

   Leave it in there for 5 minutes, take it out and dry, open it up and watch how clean and clear the bottles are... mainly just lip gloss is at the bottom and it is super usable now.  Cleaver trick huh?

Now you can use all the empty lip gloss left.  Just until it will run out again right?

 Until Next Time, take care guys!

My Secret Weapon Against Dry Skin

I know you probably read the title and where sych'd to see how to get rid of Dry skin and it is actually super affordable and really simple and easy.  So I decided to make a post on it, Why not right?

Okay so you guys all know that my beauty posts usually start off with some biology behind it... an explanation if you must.  I have gotten asked the same question over and over, "How do you NOT get dry skin over the cold seasons?" and I always answer with the same answer-

Dry skin is usually the clog of dead skin cells that haven't been properly extracted... they need to go away basically.  So why don't they remove themselves?  They actually try to but fail because when you touch your face or scratch your face then it will flake off.

SO now I will show you the tutorial on how to remove your dead skin cells with... *imaginary drum roll* a TOOTHBRUSH!

Make sure you use a soft bristled tooth brush that is a battery powered electric toothbrush.

Now use a facial scrub to exfoliate your face first then use the toothbrush to improve blood flow.

Now rinse with hot water, and apply a nice moisturizer to your face to re-hydrate and drench your skin.

Now apply any kind of lip balm... I haven't used EOS yet but if you have PLEASE comment the results below!

And your finished, you should repeat this process at least twice a week.

Bye Guys!!!!!!!
