Crave Crush Beauty

I just received my Crave Crush and had to re-post some great beauty tips that were featured. I don't endorse all (I just cannot get my brain around eyelash curlers. No gadgets around delicate eye tissue!)

Thanks, Karina!

StormSister Faves:

For between shampoos: degrease oily hair with witch hazel. Apply to your roots with a cotton ball.

When hair starts looking dull from too many products, use translucent face powder on the roots and brush through to give hair a subtle shine.

To lighten age spots and sun-damaged skin, mix the juice of 1 lemon, 1 lime, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 2 ounces of plain yogurt. Gently massage into each spot weekly for noticeable results.

For a great body exfoliant, scrub with dried coffee grounds. The caffeine in coffee also helps to stimulate the growth of new skin cells. (StormSister interjects. The caffeine also encourages the elimination of excess fluid.)

Keep cucumbers for your salads and use raw potato slices to remove dark under-eye circles. For lips that pop, dab a little bit of red or orange color in the center to make them appear fuller.

When applying blush or bronzer, you should first know where to apply your glow. Bend over for 30 seconds, then slowly stand up. Where your cheeks are flushed is where you are meant to blush. Apply your blush there for a naturally rosy look. (Brilliant!)
