New Year, New You: 25 Beauty Tricks That Will Blow Your Mind

By Jaime Morrison Curtis |

It’s a whole new year, and everyone everywhere is telling you it’s time for a whole new you. I like you just the way you are, but nevertheless I thought I’d share some seriously helpful beauty tips and tricks. As busy mamas it’s understandably difficult to take the time to primp up, but these tricks might actually save you time while helping you feel a little bit better about your mom-look. Throw your hair into a sock bun and the effortless curls that appear when you take it out for date night will totally surprise you. Since scheduling a day at the spa is practically impossible, make some of your own pampering products at home. These tips and tricks are easy to do and will make you feel great. Always remember to take a little time for yourself. I’m pretty certain that you deserve it.

    Olive oil for deep conditioning your hair. Just apply, starting at the ends, until it’s all of the way through your hair, then let sit for about 30 minutes. Wash with shampoo, then condition as normal, and your hair is really soft for several days.

  3. Louise says:

    Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque is the original natural home treatment, developed by a dermatologist that will actually dry up acne pimples, rinse away blackheads and even help shrink enlarged pores. Simply apply Mint Julep Masque to your face and neck. Within minutes it firms and hardens, as its suction action draws out waste matter from pores. Minutes later, rinse the masque away with warm water and a washcloth. After the masque is removed your skin will feel clean, refreshed, and smooth. Even for people who are fortunately free of skin problems, Mint Julep Masque is a refreshing facial treatment that relaxes tired muscles and eases tension lines on the face and neck. Its the best stuff for acne….
