We all come across certain ridiculously weird beauty solutions at our workplaces or at the monthly society women’s meet. Not to forget, the local parlour girl will always try and come up with her newest ‘discoveries’ for beauty treatments. Surprising as it may seem, there are some tricks that actually work! Let’s take a look at some of them.
To avoid stray mascara marks:
Holding a small inverted spoon above your lash line while applying mascara will help avoid staining it on the lid. The excess mascara will go on the spoon.
To reduce puffiness of the eyes:
Peel and slice a raw potato and place the slices on your eyes. Apart from cooling your eyes down and reducing the puffiness, the starch in the potato will even take care of fine lines or crow’s feet if any!
A healthy substitute for a face mask:
Don’t have time to run to the store? Not a problem; this recipe will take care of your facial needs without going to the parlour. Just mix a few teaspoons of gram flour with one egg white and some fresh curd and apply it to the face and neck. Wash it off after 15-20 mins for healthy, glowing skin.
To battle away the cellulite creeping up on your body:
We’ve heard this one so often. Caffeine is a miraculous cure for cellulite reduction. You aren’t a tea or coffee person? You don’t have to drink it; use it as a body scrub instead! The caffeine will stimulate the skin cells and the tea leaves when used as a scrub will get rid of the layer of dead skin on your body.
To get rid of dandruff:
Mix some lemon juice with olive oil and curd and massage it on your scalp. Shampoo your hair after half an hour.
We hope you try out these unusual but traditional tricks. Do share your experience with us.
