Try making and applying some at-home beauty remedies from the latest issue of the NEW Recreational Cheerleading Magazine!
Sugar Lip Scrub
Who wants chapped lips in the middle of the winter? Nobody! Try making your own exfoliating lip scrub. You’ll need:
-1 teaspoon of sugar (brown may work better, but white is good too)
-1 or 2 drops of olive oil
Combine the oil and the sugar until it forms a gritty paste. Apply to your lips and massage gently for about 2 minutes. Wet a washcloth with warm water to remove the lip scrub. Apply your favorite lip balm to keep moisturized!
Peach and Honey Facial Mask
This facial mask will leave your skin SO smooth! You’ll need:
-1 large peach or nectarine, skinned
-3 teaspoons of honey
-2 tablespoons of plain yogurt
Mash the peach and the honey together, then add the 2 tablespoons of yogurt until the mixture is pasty. Pat over your face and neck, and lay down for about 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water, pat dry, and add your favorite moisturizer or toner to finish up!
Eyeshadow Shimmer Lotion
Want to add a little sparkle to your skin for New Year’s Eve? Just crush up a shimmery eye shadow, dump it into your lotion bottle, and shake well. Gold and silver tones are best, but be creative and try other colors as well!
Natural Zit Remedies
Great- you got a pimple right before the Winter dance. Here’s some at-home tips to get rid of it!
Garlic- it’s known for antibacterial properties, so mash some up and leave on your zit for 15 minutes, then rinse off.
Honey and apple- Mash it up into a mixture and apply it to your acne spots, leave it on for about 15 minutes, and rinse off.
Tea Tree Oil- Dab it onto a pimple to help dry it out and kill bacteria.
Pineapple Puree- Puree pineapple, put in on your face for 15 minutes, then rinse off. This freshens your skin and also reduces acne marks and scars.
Mayonnaise Hair Conditioner
Use 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup, depending on the length of your hair. Spread the mayo and work it through your hair, then cover your hair and sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse and shampoo as usual to get softer, silkier strands!
Lemon Hair Shine
Mix the juice of one whole lemon with 1 cup of water. Pour it over your hair after you wash it, and leave it in. Style your hair or just let it dry and the lemon will not only smell fresh, but will add shine!
