I think I have found the gold mine for lash growth! And it’s affordable. I started using this product the beginning of the year (JAN 2014) and have noticed an EXTREME difference in my lashes! They are at least 3x as longer then before! I wish I had a before picture to show the change! But it was all thanks to a little product called careprost. It’s a cheaper version of Latisse.
But the product is relatively affordable compared to other brands, and it is totally worth it! One small bottle has lasted me for nine months!
I use a cheap eyeliner brush by E.L.F. to apply the eyedrops along my eyelash line each night. You have to keep using the product to see long term results. After reading online, it says once you stop using the product your lashes will go back to how they were within a few weeks.
Has your hairdresser ever told you to finish off rinsing your hair in cold water? I do have to say I am guilty of not finishing my shower off with cold water, because no one wants to step out of the shower freezing their bum off! But there are so many benefits to rinsing your hair with cold water.
Cold water closes up your cuticles protecting your hair from damage as well as eliminating some frizz. It is good to shampoo and condition under warm water, when your cuticles are open, but once you are done sealing up the cuticles with cold water seals in the beneficial properties from your conditioner and shampoo. The only downfall is if you have thin hair this make make it look thinner.
The same concept applies to the pores on your scalp. Warm water allows the shampoo to cleanse out the pores on you scalp, but once you finish you want to use cold water to close the pores in order to prevent them from getting clogged with oil, grease or dirt.
Cold water also promotes blood flow, which will improve circulation on your scalp. This has been said to help promote hair growth.
Hope you enjoyed this weeks Fun Tip Friday! I am going to get better at finishing my shower with a cold rinse.
Want to avoid those annoying chipped polish nails for a few days longer?
Try wiping your nails clean with acetone (nail polish remover) before you apply any nail polish. This will remove any excess dirt, oil, or any thing else that may prevent your polish from adhering to your nails properly.
I keep the largest sized tub of vaseline by my bedside and apply a large amount every night before bed.
It may seem kind of gross to apply so much vaseline to your lips, but as the night wears on the vaseline soaks in and you want to make sure that when you wake up there is still a light layer of vaseline on your lips. So be very generous with how much vaseline you use, it’s hard to use too much!
Then in the morning you can either take a toothbrush or just a rag and scrub or wipe your lips. I usually just use a towel/rag and scrub the excess vaseline off. And afterwards you should see a big difference!
Don’t forget to apply a chapstick or a small amount of vaseline on after you have scrubbed it all off.
If your lips are very dry it make take a couple days before they are looking and feeling fresh again.
