This week's tip:: Homemade Tips! (:

I have seen many posts regarding any homemade recipes, so I thought, why not?

 

Treatment for Dark Under Eye Circles

Grated potatoes can lighten under-eye circles. Potatoes contain an enzyme called catecholase, which is used in cosmetics as a human skin lightener.

Run one spud through your food processor and stuff the raw mash into a piece of cheesecloth.
Apply to the area directly beneath your eye don't let the potato juice come in contact with the eye itself and leave for 15 to 20 minutes.

Wipe away the starchy residue

Make Your Own Hair Perfume

It is pleasant to perfume the hair after washing it when the hair is half dry. The following ingredients are required to make this fragrant perfume.

  • 6 tablespoons powdered charcoal
  • 5 tablespoons powders myrrh
  • 1 tablespoon powdered benzoin
  • 1 tablespoon potassium nitrate
  • 2-3 drops oil of bergamot
  • 2-3 drops of sandalwood
  • mucilage of tragacanth

Mix the powders together and sieve, and then add the oils. Add the potassium nitrate, and then sufficient mucilage of tragacanth to make a stiff paste.

Heat the mixture over a water bath and then make into little cones and dry. Just light one of the cones and let the smoke go into the damp hair.
The smell is highly aromatic and exotic.

Sensitive Skin Gentle Exfoliant

For a gentle sensitive skin exfoliator, mix 1/2 cup cornmeal, 1/4 cup milk, two teaspoons baking soda, one tablespoon olive oil and five drops of tea-tree oil in a bowl, then apply to your skin.

Fruity Lip Gloss

Ingredients:
2 Tbls solid shortening
1 Tbls fruit-flavored powdered drink mix
35 mm film container

Mix shortening & drink mix together in a microwave safe bowl till smooth!
Place in microwave on high for 30 seconds until mix becomes a liquid!
Pour into clean (wash thoroughly before use) film container, or any other small airtight container!
Place mix into fridge for 20-30 minutes or till firm!

Cure For Dandruff

Vinegar is poured into the hair, massaged into the scalp, and left to dry for a few minutes. Then the hair is washed!
The process is repeated daily until the dandruff disappears, usually within a few days

I hope you guys enjoyed this and found it useful, because I was seeing a bunch of homemade recipes requests, hope I helped! Share your comments!
