Sorry, that's just me!

I just had to come up with something to keep my hands baby soft without interfering with my kitchen sink duties. Here it is:

10 Beauty Remedies Every Woman Should Know!




When you’re in with your makeup, skin, hair or any other beauty problem, chances are, you need a solution — and fast. Discovering beauty remedies has become a bit of a hobby for me.

 So, I’ve collected my favourites below to help you the next time you’re in need of a quick beauty fix!

1.       Use Chapstick to soothe a dry nose  This particularly comes in handy during the harmattan season or winter depending on where you’re located. Just like it works on chapped lips, it can help moisturize the skin right around your nose and provide instant relief. You can also rub some inside of your nose when it’s feeling very dry, sore or just uncomfortable.  

Just be sure not to stick the tube up your nose and then use it on your lips (because that’s just gross!). Shea butter also works!


2.       Use honey to heal minor burns   For minor burns, reach for some raw honey. A thick layer will immediately cut the sting while also providing antibacterial protection and keeping skin hydrated.

8 Skin Mistakes You Just Might Be Making

 
 
 
1.   Forgetting to wash your hands before washing your face: The number of women who forget to wash their hands before they wash their faces is incredible, but think about it: You’re putting the bacteria, dirt and oil from your fingers directly onto your skin, which could be the main reason you’ve got acne or inflamed skin.
 
2.   Keeping your makeup on at night: Taking off your makeup at night should come as naturally as brushing your teeth. Doing it during the week is one thing, but cleansing your face becomes even more important on a weekend after a special occasion or night out, when you’re likely wearing even more makeup than during the week. If you’re feeling especially lazy, keep makeup remover at your nightstand for a quick removal.

Castor Oil for Healthy and Silky Hair



My castor oil finished about two months ago so, I decided to try to live without it. It just didn't work! You know why?
Castor oil is just one unique oil. I like to think of it as a "weird" oil. You see, it's a very thick oil yet it's quite drying... did that make sense? See what I mean?
Scientists attribute its healing properties to its unusual chemical composition, which consists of a triglyceride of fatty acids with ricinoleic acid of up to 90 percent.

Makeup 101: How to Remove False Eyelashes



Hey Ladies!
It's the weekend and many of you may have a party, wedding or some occasion to attend. Obviously, you will aim to look your very best because you just never know....right? *winks*

For those who apply false eyelashes or lash extensions as they are sometimes called, here is an easy foolproof way to remove your false eyelashes when you get back home.

Random note: There's nothing as unsettling as waking up in the morning and seeing a lady with full on lashes....*shudders*

Moving on...

You'll need:


  • Olive oil
  • Cotton balls
  • Hot water 
  • Basin
  • Towel 
Directions

  • Pour hot water in the basin.
  • Hold your face over the bowl and drape the towel over your head, to trap the steam around your face.
  • Steam your face for about ten minutes.


How to steam your face



  •  Wet a cotton ball with olive oil. Wipe it on your lashes, taking care not to get any in your eye.
  • Continue gently wiping your lashes with oil until the extensions begin to fall off.
  •  Try to avoid your eyes as much as possible. 
  • Rinse your eyelashes. Splash warm water on your eyelashes to wash away the oil.
  • If you feel your face is still too oily, wash face with soap or cleanser.
  • Pat your face dry.

Now go and par-tey!!!

Cheers to the weekend!!

5 Homemade Remedies For Excessive Belching



Belching is also referred to as burping, or dyspepsia. When your body breaks down food into energy it naturally produces gas. When you belch, you release the gas that has built up in your stomach through your mouth. The sound that is associated with belching is embarrassing and often considered rude in some cultures while in others it shows appreciation for the meal....*rolls eyes* #badmanners

Although belching is normal and even the most polite of us happen to belch from time to time, excessive belching  might be a signal that you suffer from a more serious medical condition.

Some of the causes for burping include: 

  • IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
  • Celiac disease
  • Crohn's disease
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Swallowed air
  • Constipation
  • Medicines
  • Foods and drinks
Fortunately, there are several homemade remedies sitting right in your kitchen that can help with the belching.  

Try any of the following and see if it helps.

1. Baking soda
A very effective way to deal with harmless belching is drinking a glass of water mixed with two teaspoons of baking soda.

2. Ginger 
You can take it in different forms - in meals, as a seasoning, as a warm tea or just chew it raw. 
 
3. Papaya
The enzyme papain that can be found in papaya is known to break down tough meat fibers, so it is very effective in reducing belching.

4. Lime juice

Drink a glass of water with a teaspoon of lime juice combined with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar after every meal to prevent excessive gas production and indigestion.


5.Water
Increase the amount of water you drink and avoid carbonated drinks and alcoholic beverages

NB:
 If your condition does not improve despite all efforts, you should see a doctor immediately as it can be a symptom of the more serious diseases listed above.


Good luck!

Who Knew? So Warm Orange Juice Makes You Sleep?




Okay, so last week, I was down with a nasty cold and a sore throat. My nose was blocked, my ears were blocked and I think my head was blocked... Well, it certainly seemed that way!!:D
As a result, I couldn't sleep so one night, I tried to make some warm milk to get me to sleep but there was none available. I knew that I just had to drink something warm so, do you know what I did?

  • I squeezed some orange juice into a mug.
  • Then stood the mug of juice in a bowl of hot water for about 3 minutes till it became very warm. 
  • I added a teaspoon of honey and drank it.
  •  In minutes, I started feeling quite drowsy and slept off right there on the sofa!


Now, that's what I drink when my eyes are shining when I should be asleep.:)

 Who would have guessed? Not me!
P.S. As a result of  the vitamin C in the orange juice, my cold was gone completely in 3 days without any medication.

I hope it works for you like it did for me.

A Great Homemade Mosquito Repellent!



Yesterday, I was having my usual Sunday evening gossip with my sister, so we sat outside on the veranda. While we were in the middle of one particularly CSI:Miami -ish amebo, I couldn't help but notice one biiiiig mosquito perched rather comfortably on her shoulder. This really put me in a dilemma of sorts: Should I kill the mosquito and in the process dislocate my sister's shoulder OR should I ignore the mosquito and increase her chances of having malaria?......Guess what? I did neither. I just quietly told her, " There's a mosquito on your shoulder," If you see the way she murdered the mosquito, eh???.....#lipsealed.

Moving on.....

Here is a very easy recipe for a mosquito repellent, This is my most used repellent treatment simply because it works for me every single time.

You'll need:
8 tablespoons of olive oil 
10 drops of Eucalyptus essential oil. 

Directions

  • Mix the oils. 
  • (I put it in a spray bottle), spray it on and rub in. 
It has a pleasant smell, keeps mosquitoes at bay – plus the olive oil moisturizes the skin. 
So, it;s a win-win!!

Good luck!

A Vitamin-Packed Slimming Smoothie



Now that's some title! Quite a mouthful (pun intended), don't you think?
Okay, so I've been a little lax on my posting, I'm sorry. It's been so crazy lately... you know, so much to do in very, very little time. Please vex not.:) Moving on...

This smoothie is just the perfect addition to your diet. Why? Because if you feel like you are not getting enough vitamins from your diet, this smoothie packs a powerful antioxidant punch and helps you absorb nutrients from your diet.

So what exactly is in this smoothie anyway? The papaya/pawpaw gives you more than your daily recommended value of vitamin C to keep your immune system strong and ward off disease. The lettuce and spinach give you a healthy dose of magnesium and calcium, and the apple and banana give you a dose of antioxidants! 

Now, you're interested...very interested! lol


1 cup papaya/pawpaw
1/2 cup lettuce
1/2 cup spinach
1/2 banana
1/2 green apple

Directions
Put all ingredients into blender. Blend until smooth.

Cheers!

A Sunburn Soothing Yoghurt Mask



Yoghurt is not just for consumption, it does wonders for your skin. It heals the skin naturally by re-establishing the acid/alkaline balance of the skin to help heal a sunburn. I like to blend it with one of my favorite ingredients—green tea, which is so soothing. 

Green tea is also rich in antioxidants, which help protect the skin from free radicals, as well as calm and soothe irritation. I like finish with a light oil like grapeseed oil oil. It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids and has natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. 

Okay, enough of the gushing already!! 

Want to try it out? Here's how:


Ingredients:
½ cup plain yoghurt
1 bag green tea
One to three drops grapeseed oil or Bio oil (depending on skin type)
  1. Steep and cool the tea bag hot water. Empty the yoghurt into a bowl through cheesecloth or paper towel for a few minutes. 
  2. Add contents of cooled tea bag to strained yoghurt and mix well.
  3.  Wash sunburned skin with cool water and pat dry.
  4.  Apply yoghurt mixture to affected area. Leave to dry for 15 minutes and do not rinse. 
  5. Reapply another layer.  Repeat three to five times. Rinse with cool water and apply the oil.  
  6. The oil may be reapplied throughout the day.
  7. This mask may be applied twice daily until your burn fades.

So, why don't you try it out and see how it goes! Whatever happens, let me know...:)

Mummy Alert: Homemade Baby Wipes!



Calling all mummies, aunties and nannies!! I don't know what category you fall into but I am an aunt and sometime nanny to my lovely nieces and nephews.

For those days when you want to clean up some baby "business", and the container of baby wipes is very, very empty, here's a recipe to make some homemade wipes that works just as well.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup baby body wash
  • 1/4 cup baby oil
  • 1/4 cup baby lotion
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1 roll of absorbent paper towels
  • An air-tight plastic container


Directions

  1. Mix all the ingredients together well in a large jug or pitcher.  
  2. Stir the mixture for a few minutes until it’s all blended together nicely.
  3. Unroll the paper towels from the roll and layer them into the plastic container. Pour half of your mixture over the top of the towels. 
  4. Turn the entire stack of towels upside down and then pour the other half of the mixture over the other side of the towels and into the container.

The absorbent towels will soak up the mixture and remain soft on your baby’s body all the way to the last towel. Be sure to keep the container tightly sealed at all times.

Tip:
It also works as an excellent makeup remover!! 
As a makeup artist/junkie, I say Amen to that!

Do this frequently for consistent results.

How to Enjoy Peanut Butter



Hello!
I trust you had a great weekend. Mine was so-so, thank you for asking.;)
Today, I would like to sing the praises of peanut butter or ose oji ( in Igbo). It gets a bad rap most of the time because many of us use it the wrong way.
You should eat no more than one tablespoon of peanut butter a day. That way, you get to enjoy the goodness of P.B.and maintain your waistline. I eat it almost whenever I'm updating my blog, it makes everything 'flow' better. lol!

Try it with an apple
Cut the apple into slices and dip into the peanut butter

You could also try it with a banana and you'll love it, I promise!

And if there is no peanut butter in sight, dash down to the nearest shop and buy 20 naira groundnut but try not to eat more than required! lol

Try it, I hope you like it.
