Hi all! I learned this beauty tip from one of my friends and I wanna share it you. There are already a lot of commercial products in the world and most of them are harmful for our skin. So, a lot of people use natural products now which are accessible at home. My friend taught me that you could use brown sugar and lemon juice as a facial scrub. Just mix these ingredients together and you already have an instant facial scrub. Just make sure that lemon is juice is not too much. You might wanna try this but dont do everyday. Once or twice in a week will do. How about you? Do you have anything you wish to share?

I only use lemon and sugar on my knees, and I also used that for wax to remove unwanted hairs on my legs...I don't buy wax at beauty shops it is too expensive, what I do I made my own wax out of sugar, honey, lemon and water that will only cost me $1 rather than that from the shop that will cost me $10.

Wow! That's a great idea. So you just rub the lemon, sugar and honey mixture on to your legs and hair are just gonna fall of? I'm curious, how do you make it? Wax are indeed expensive if you buy it in the supermarket. I did use wax before but maybe 1 or 2 times and I didnt do it again cause of the price and I get to use it for only a few months.

I am making a blog at the moment where you can learn about natural beauty regimen that only cost you less...I did try commercial wax hair remover and really it cost me about P1,000 plus then I did a research of the scientific names of its contents and found out that those are the sugar,honey,water and lemon only. So, I tried to make on my own and luckily I succeeded. Now, I can wax not spending too much.

Hello p3ks626, I want to share mine as well, girls should keep good looking and good fit, it will make us more energetic and more confident on all aspects. 1. Drink enough water daily, don't just drink water till you feel thristy. 2 Litres of water(about 8 glasses of water) 2. Have balance diet. Have more veggies. Have less meat. 3. Don't smoke. It increases free radicals in our bodies which causes us aging a lot faster. 4. Cleanse our face and keep it clean when we go to bed. 5. I use Olive oil as a massage oil onto my face. It helps reduce wrinkles. 6. Sleep enough. 7. Do exercise regularly. 8. If you don't have sensitive face, you can use saturated salt-water to cleanse face, it helps cure pimples. 9. Pearl powder(the highest grade) is good to whiten our skin tone. It helps whiten blemishs. 10. Vaseline is indeed a very good handcream, put a lot onto your hands and gently wrap them with plastics wrap, like using hand masks, after five minutes, wipe it off with tissues. You hands would become silky smooth. Many more~ Share more with you later if I have more time. Have a nice day~

COnfidence is really very important and it should not only manifest in our outside appearance but as well as what we have inside. These are really great what you have here in your list. I should remember this cause I think its all about physical well-being and as they said health is wealth.

My skin isnt perfect But i would say that my skin is better than the majority of the population . Im part filipino and parrt korean and my mom being korean had always put in us the value of taking care of our skin . So we follow the korean way of skin care One is that you should steam bath at least twice a week not only does it relax your muscles but it opens up your poeres to remove all the clogged dirt and detoves your skin to make it breath then dirst will come out when you start washing . Massage your skin daily in circular motions especially after you put your favorite moisturizer and after steaming it makes your blood circulate and thus ensuring better absorption and maximum effect from your products . I never go to sleep without using a mask . That had been a staple for everyone in my family . I prefer tissue masks because they stay in place and their not messy like using pack especially when you tend to move around a lot hen you sleep

Thank you, that actually sounds good and I can't wait to try it for myself :) Speaking of scrub, I use baking soda as a body scrub, I DON'T use it on the face, because I dunno if it's too harsh. Anyway, I just mix the baking soda with my body cleanser and I noticed that my skin felt smoother. I also shave so I often get razor burns and stuff like that but with scrubbing with baking soda, my skin, specially my legs felt smoother and softer and it looked a lot healthier than ever! :)

my friend shares her beauty tips. when washing your face, always wash it with lukewarm water first (to open up your pores so you can clean them well) and then rinse your facial cleanser/facial foam and etc with cold one to close your pores. THAT WOULD BE FOR THE MORNING or before leaving your house. as for the evening or before going to sleep WASH YOUR FACE WITH LUKEWARM WATER AND RINSE IT WITH LUKEWARM WATER TOO so that your pores will open up and it will release the oil from your face.

My main beauty tip has more to do with makeup. But if you have an eyelash curler to curl your eye lashes with... i would recommend using a blow dryer to warm it up. Down make the blow dry to high cause they it will burn you eye lid. Also the curler has to be metal to become warm. I guess it works like a hair curler, it's warm and helps keep your eye lashes curled longer. And then put a little mascara on top to make it last!
