beauty tip
Honey remedy for skin blemishes... Cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight.

I'm familiar with the initial bloating from extra fiber, but for everyone else reading... it does go away once your body is accustomed to it!

A bonus, too: Getting the right amount of fiber also helps keep your belly slim! Doctor's recommend that women get between 25 and 35 grams a day. Most women only average 15!!! Food for thought
I dont think i get enough fiber
I have a question...
how do you manage to eat 25/35g of fiber? do you take a supplement?

oatmeal mask: mix oatmeal with water (make a paste). leave it on your face for no more than 15 mins. or else it'll be very itchy.
for blotchy skin: apple cider vinegar plus water as my toner
for acne/pimple: lemon + water
to minimize pores: rub tomato skin on nose, etc etc.

I put a little bit of hairspray on my finger tip and then rub it across my eyebrows before I go out to keep them in place.

hi this is a great post

here are my tips:
scrub nails with a lemon to strength them i believe this also helps get rid of yellowish marks left by dark nail polish.

sorry don't know the word in english in spanish its agua oxigenada. its used like alcohol to clean cuts. if you dab some in a cotton ball and then clean under ur nails it will make them whiter so they kind of resemble a french/white tip.

I rinse my face with salt water when I've scratched at spots and they've become tiny cuts.

hollyslookingdry - WHOA! I used the salt on my nose for blackheads and it's worked! I've used it every 3 days after regular cleansing, and it's been great! Thank you so much!

I've been adding husk to my youghurt for the past two days now..and it's a struggle ..I was told it didn't taste of anything...but it seems to swell up in my mouth and while the taste isn't awful..it still gives me the gag reflex now and again..so I'm only eating 2xteaspoons of the stuff.

my dad's diabetic too. you know what he does to keep his sugar level in control?

He buys a cactus leaf, slice it b/w the upper and lower surfaces of the leaf. You will find some kinda gel inside it.. If you eat it atleast once day, it really helps. At least for my dad.

Hi, you are all the natural people......, it's great to know all of your tricks. Mine is olive oil, lemon, table salt to rub together as shower douce. Practically I use after I do my routine joggings. My dirty sweaty skin becomes soft and clean afterwards.

Hair grow tricks with natural ingredients. Indonesian trick is celery. Apply celery on damp hair..., leave on an hour, then rinse with tepid water. So you can use your regular shampoo.
