A few weeks ago, I gave up wearing acrylic nails, and one thing I’ve noticed is that my cuticles have dried out and I’m getting a lot of hangnails. DANG!! I forgot how much they hurt! Not only do they catch on everything, but a few have gotten infected. Not fun!
So I decided to do a little research and tried out this simple beauty tip to keep your cuticles healthy and with fewer hangnails – I hope this tip helpful for you, as well!
Winter definitely has dried out my skin! With the heat running, and cold wind whipping my face, I’m starting to look a little ruddy! Well this DIY facial mask takes care of both the dryness and the redness! It’s all natural and takes 5 minutes to make!
Just be sure to lay down and relax while the mask is on your face – enjoy the moment! Don’t do what I had to do at the end of this video – go dig out all the sticky mess of the mask that dropped down my shirt!
I have decided to go naked for a month, and I am glad I am doing it! Going “Au Naturel” is very freeing! Ditching acrylic nails has been a very positive experience so far. (Wait, what did you think I meant?) Having acrylic nails on & off for the last seven years, it was time to give my nails a breather.
I know. They aren’t very pretty right now. This was what they looked like immediately after I had them removed:
Right now, a week into not having acrylics, I’m dealing with super-sensitive nails and fingertips. I can’t reach into my purse to grab something without getting that “nails across a chalkboard” feeling. Cringe-worthy. But I believe it will be worth it all in the end. Hopefully heathy, stronger nails.
If you have acrylic nails, why don’t you join me for a month? Send me your photos of your naked nails (NO OTHER naked pics, please! ?) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I use my makeup brushes every day. They are the tools of my trade! Years ago, when I started breaking out on my face, I realized that I needed to keep them clean. Turns out, the combination of old makeup and oils is just a breeding ground for germs!
So gather up a small bowl or cup, some baby shampoo and follow my easy steps for cleaning your makeup brushes!
