Tuesday's Tip

I discovered these Two Tips from realbeauty.com

Brown Sugar
DIY Recipe: Luxurious hand softening and conditioning treatment. The cold weather takes a toll on hands by drying them out to the point where they start to crack and peel. Save this recipe for when skin is past the tender stage and can use some sloughing help to make them feel soft again.

What You'll Need:1/4 cup coarse brown sugar, baby oil to make into a paste.

Method and Application: Mix together. Using a hand-washing motion, apply the mixture to the hands. Continue the washing motion for a minute, then rinse off with warm water and pat dry.

Pumpkin Puree
DIY Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Pedicure. Since pumpkin is chock full of good-for-you nutrients, it only makes sense that it would pack the same benefits for your skin. With the weather getting colder, it's a great ingredient to add to your beauty treatments since it nourishes tired tried and dry skin instantly, plus gives it a gorgeous healthy glow.

What You'll Need:½ cup pumpkin puree and 1 egg. Optional ingredients: splash of milk, 1 tsp honey

Method and Application:Mix ingredients together and apply the pumpkin masque to feet and calves. Wrap in plastic bags. Sit back and relax for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Dry off and apply a few pumps of your favorite moisturizer or lotion (try a Vanilla scent) to keep feet and calves silky-smooth and hydrated. Cut and file nails as desired.
