These RE/SHAPE Beauty Tips are fun and some are a little unexpected (potatoes on the eyes and ice cubes for wrinkles?!).
1. Turn Up the Heat
For curlier, flirtier lashes, the experts at You Beauty recommend heating your lash curler with a hair dryer for five to eight seconds before curling them.*
2. Use Ice Cubes to Keep Fat, and Wrinkles Away
The experts at You Beauty recommend massaging an ice cube over your face until it melts. Do it every night before bed and keep fat cells, acne and wrinkles under control.
3. De-Puff Your Eyes With Raw Potatoes
In an interview with Reader’s Digest, Dr. Frances Jang, a dermatologist at Skin Works recommends using raw potato slices to soothe your eyes where she shares that they are astringent meaning they help decrease water retention. The potato also contains the enzyme catalase which helps lighten dark under eye circles.
Wash and peel a potato. Cut two slices and place one on each eye for 10 minutes. Lay down, relax and let the potatoes work their magic. Rinse the eye area gently with lukewarm water and pat dry.
4. Keep Your Brows on Point
According to Yahoo Shopping, lightly spray an old toothbrush or clean mascara want with hairspray and brush your brows to style as you like.
5. Exfoliate Daily
Exfoliation is an important and easy way to buff away the dead skin cells that cover up your skin’s natural glow.
6. Towel Dry The Right Way
Don’t rub your hair dry with your towel; it will cause your hair to frizz. Instead, before getting out of the shower gently squeeze excess water from your hair. Then, wrap your hair in a towel and pat it dry to absorb any remaining moisture.
7. Stop Your Hair Colour From Fading
If you’ve just had your hair dyed, the last thing you want is for the colour to fade. One surefire way to prevent such a mishap from happening is to use a deep-conditioning treatment once a month. This will help lock in colour and has the added benefit of staving off dry and damaged locks.
