Honey helps to heal and hydrate dry cracked lips (plus, it has antibacterial in it which is good if you get cold sores).
- Grab a small plastic container, fill it with a tablespoon of sugar & a tablespoon of honey.
- Mix the two together to create a nice paste.
- Rub the mixture onto your lips.
The sugar will peel away dry flaky skin while the honey conditions and hydrates your lips.
Side note: If you lick your lips, it tastes yummy!
Finish off with a nice coat of moisturizing lip balm, Vaseline, Crisco... whatever you like.
I swear by olive oil!
A small amount of olive oil can remove even your toughest, waterproof, eyeliner.
I place a small amount on a clean cotton pad/ball and wipe off my eyeliner first. You can use the oil to removes all your make-up but be sure to properly wash your face after.
The cold weather for most, is extremely harsh on the skin. For me, i go through a period of dullness. To fix that, i cut a lemon wedge and simply rub it on my face. Instant brighter!

Do you have oily skin? Well I don't
But... my mom does. To control her shine:
- She washes her faces
- Cracks an egg
- Removes the yolk
- Coats her face with a thin layer of egg whites
*Please don't do this if your allergic to eggs... genius.
