~Get Rid of a Pimple Fast With One Quick Trick~

Ever been in a rush to get somewhere nice or just been plain tired of a zit? Me too.

If you ever have a problem pimple, use this gentle and effective trick to get that sucker out.

pimple

1. As soon as you notice the pimple appearing, get out a wash cloth or cotton ball and run it under hot water. Place it over your pimple for at least 10 seconds. The hot water will open up the infected pore and allow you to get the gunk out.

2. Remove the cloth and start squeezing at the pimple (gently, mind you) try lots of different angles, because each pore faces a different direction. Hopefully you can get it all out in one go, but if not, simply wait half a day and repeat the process. For my skin, after I’ve wrestled with a zit for a couple days it gives up.

If you’re afraid your skin might flare up after you pop your zit, apply a toner or astringent to deeply clean the pore.

That’s it! Hope this is helpful, and may your skin glow with beauty!

I’m Back Home with a LUSH HAUL!

*yawn* Our trip back home seemed to span months; I mean, I was basically up for over 24 hours. I get a bit delusional after oh, lets say 17?

…Well anyway! On our way to the airport I had the chance to stop at the Scottsdale Lush store! Here’s my “eager face”

derp

 

I love going into the actual shop – in every one I go in all the employees are super friendly and casual! They really treat you like your royalty, giving you recommendations and demonstrating the products on your hands! One girl in Raleigh even challenged me to a “pale off” (to see who was the palest) I think I won haha! I win everytime!

I had already looked online to see what I wanted, so I just walked in and picked it all up!

yay

 

Here’s what I got!

1st: I got three Twilight Bath Bombs – one for me and one each for my friends Kristen and Taylor!

This along with Big Blue is probably my favorite bomb. To me, it smells like cotton candy with a slight woodsy undertone. When you plop it into the bath, it starts out light, then turns darker and darker just like the night sky!

Next I bought a small bottle of the Cynthia Sylvia Stout shampoo.

It promises shine and volume, can’t wait to try it out! I was a bit worried about the whole “beer in it” thing but it smells great!

I got a Ceridwen’s Cauldron bath melt to try out as well.

The smell makes me think of a dark forest in fairy tale land or something like that. Very mystical and outdoorsy smelling. I also like that it has oatmeal in it, because oatmeal is a wonderful natural cleanser and exfoliator! I made a homemade mask featuring oatmeal, check it out if you’ve got the chance!

Lastly I got a small cut of the Herbalism facial cleanser.

It smells like my spice cabinet! All you do is take a small chunk, mix with water and rub into your face for a few minutes. It soothed my travel- tired skin after the first use!

That’s all for this haul, for more Lush reviews click here!

Oh and just as a side note – LUSH IS COMING TO CHARLOTTE!!! The lady at Scottsdale told me and I about Jumped in the air! I’d love to get a job there but I believe you have to be 18… ahh well at least I don’t have to shop online anymore!

Goodnight Everyone!

 

MacGyver Ways to Incorporate Vaseline Into Your Beauty Routine!

We all know that Vaseline helps burns, cuts, yada yada yada…But did you know that you can also use it in these ways?

1. Rub a bit on your under eye circles and bags before bed, wash off when you wake up and viola – silky smooth bagless eyes.

2. You can also apply a bit on your finger and  gently rub it on your eyelashes before bed. It will moisturize your lashes that may be dry and unhealthy!

3. Apply a small amount over any matte eyeshadow to achieve a glossy eye look like this.

4. If you’re short on chapstick, Vaseline makes a great balm that will lock in moisture for hours.

5. If you wanna go pro like Marilyn Monroe, apply a thin layer onto your face before you put on makeup. People with oily skin might not want to do this though.

Hopefully you learned something new today! Remember, before you throw that jar away, put it to good use!
