Fancy sharing a beauty tip? Thought it would be a fun and useful thread! Here's mine:-

An infusion of wine and basil helps close enlarged pores. Take a cup of wine and three or four basil leaves, steep and use to cleanse the areas on your face that have open pores. The combination of the wine and the basil create the properties that help close the pores.

shaving your legs with conditioner instead of shaving gel gives you a great clean, smooth shave, my legs have never been so silky. :)

As I have sensitive skin, during my Brazillian wax course, they used tea tree after wax lotion.. and yep i had a massave reaction to it!
so I use Drapolene nappy rash cream,, superb! I use that on my clients who have extra sensitive skin,, brilliant!

I use whats left of my hair color (brown) to tint my eyebrows as I find this lasts so much longer than the normal lash and brow tint. Obviously it's the stronger peroxide in the hair dye. Woudn't use it on my clients though:)

If your in a resteraunt or pub and have forgotten your perfume, run your wrist under the hand dryer- it brings it out again :) x

Oatmeal and warm water makes your feet feel baby soft :)

Although be careful :p I once did the water TOO warm and after about five minutes I could feel porridge squelching around in my toes, it made me sick :( lol x

I use baby wipes to remove excess tint when I dye my hair (at home kits - not a hair Geek :wink2:).

Put the dye on my roots, then by the time I've got the the back of my head it's been on long enough for me to start adding the dye to the rest of my hair. Once I've finished running it through and clipped it up to allow it to develpo I then rub all round my face, neck and ears with a wet wipe and it gets it all off.

If you have a ring that's turning your finger green...
Get a clear nail varnish and apply a thin layer on the inside of the ring :) x
