7 Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy At Home Beauty Tips

For your face, skin, and hair.


Your skin will definitely thank you for trying these easy skin care ideas.

1. Clean your makeup brushes with vinegar.

Use a tablespoon (or two) of warmed up white vinegar in a cup of hot water. Let your brushes sit in it for 20 minutes. Then Rinse each of them in hot water then cold. It gets all the makeup out and gets most of the bacteria out of them.

2. Use activated charcoal powder as a natural teeth whitener.

You just wet your toothbrush and and dip it in. I use a different toothbrush for this and do it every other night. I brush with it for 5 minutes.Then I use my WaterPik (water flosser) to get all the plaque and charcoal out of my mouth. Next I just brush my teeth with normal toothpaste and my other toothbrush.

3. Do weekly steam facials.

You can do this two ways:

Boil a pot of water and put your face over it with a towel covering you, so the steam won't escape. You can also add essential oils that benefit your skin.

Or, you can purchase a face steamer. Here's a link for the one I got on Amazon. These just save some time on waiting for the water to warm up and these shoot out steam directly on your face. You still need a towel over your head for this one.

Sit there for 10-15 minutes.

4. Use Biore strips.

After you're done with your steam facial, put Biore strips on your face. Then you let those sit for 10-15 minutes, or until dry. These get blackheads, dead skin, and dirt out of your pores.

5. Replace your usual mask with the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask.

Mix some of the clay powder in a bowl with apple cider vinegar for better results. This mask makes your face very tight when it dries, but leaves it so so so soft once you've washed it all off. This is my favorite clay mask ever. You can also use it on your chest and back.

6. Soak your feet in epsom salt.

I fill my foot bath with hot water, four scoops of Epsom salt, and a few drops of lavender essential oil. This makes my feet so soft and takes the soreness away from my feet.

7. Love your hair and give it a hair mask.

There are millions of hair masks and hair mask recipes on Pinterest. I use a spoon of castor oil and coconut oil and mix it together, and microwave it for 30 seconds. Massage it into your scalp and put a shower cap over your hair and leave it in for 4-7 hours. Then you wash it out. This promotes strengthening and growing hair.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
