Beauty tips have abounded since the beginning of time. There is just something about human beings that need to make ourselves as beautiful as we can. There are, however, some beauty tips that may seem strange, especially if they are transferred from one culture to another. I just read an article at Real Beauty about strange tips that work. Here they are for your pleasure.
Powder your roots. By roots, I mean hair roots. Now why would you ever want to powder your hair? According to this tip, the powder will help you avoid greasy looking hair. How to do it? “If your hairline starts to look greasy, dig up a big, fluffy makeup brush, and dip it into a pot of loose powder. Tap it once on the back of your hand to remove the excess, then dust it over your roots.”
Spray your favorite cologne onto your hairbrush. What will this do? It will have your hair smelling great all day! I usually use great smelling shampoo and conditioner, but there are times when I feel that my hair is starting to stink. I never thought of this solution but I shall try it the next time I feel the need!
Take Benadryl to take away a flushed look. I can think of many times that this would work! Say you had a glass of wine too many during lunch. Looking real flushed won’t do you any good! Take Benadryl or any other antihistamine and that redness will go away like magic.

Don’t you ever wonder about those women on TV and in the movies who wake up looking absolutely gorgeous? I am sure they do NOT look like that in real life! Still, there are things that we women can do to make sure that we look pretty good the moment we get out of bed.
First, make sure you wash your face at night. Not only that, try using a deep cleansing yet gentle product a few hours before you go to bed. This will help you get rid of more toxins and dirt as the blood flow is much better at nighttime.
Second, sleep on your back if you can. I know we all have our preferred sleeping positions but sleeping on the back avoids pressure on the face. The more pressure you put on your face, the higher your chances of developing wrinkles.
Third, mix some tanning cream onto your night moisturizer if you want to get a healthy glow. Just make sure you don’t over do it. The effect will give you a nice smooth color in the long run.
Fourth, cut back on the carbs, especially for dinner. Wonder why you get that puffy look in the morning? It’s probably the loads of mashed potatoes (or other high carb food) that you had for dinner. Instead of eating lots of carbs, go for more protein. Avoid the sugar, too.
Fifth, and last, wake up with nice hair by using satin or silk pillowcases. These materials cause less friction, resulting in less frizz when you wake up.
