It’s a question that has been annoying me since ever.
And it’s one I can still not find an answer for. But I have to share my pain with you, maybe one of you can give me some solution?
Or maybe just knowing that I am not alone in this will make the load of my worry a little less?
What’s the question, you impatiently think, ready to wander off. Cool your boots, my worrisome busy-birds, and hear it then if you can’t wear any longer.
It’s just…why the eff do I always forget to take pictures at the most important moments of my life? Why can not my mind or, more realistically, one of my friends remember to capture these moments? Help me hold on to them.
It is so annoying, watching the memories fade out at their edges while I wish I had just a single picture capturing the emotions, the feel of that moment. Just a glimpse of the reality, a little souvenir from that much visited (in my head-duh) place, to hold on to when the rest of it is rushing away.
A colored print to take the black and white out of my thoughts of the past. To help me never forget. To make it easier to remember.
It should have been one of Murphy’s laws. Just like the fact that you can barely find a hot car being driven by an equally hot and young guy. They are all either too old, not hot enough or just women.
Just like all hot, tall and kind men are either taken or their orientations don’t coincide with mine.
Or maybe, they are all Murphy’s laws, we just never found them in proper writing.
Hm. Now that might just be the answer to an endless list of my questions. Or not. While I figure that out, here are little diy tips to making your pretty face to glow naturally Why? Because…I mean, why the eff is it always so dull?
1. Take an egg , separate it’s yolk and put that in the fridge. (It’s useless for now, unless you are hungry. Then scramble it, QUICK!) Use the white and mix in a little water (a teaspoon at max). Take an old, cleaned, makeup brush. After thoroughly washing your face, pat dry it, and begin to layer your face with paper towels/tissue paper. How will they stick? After placing each one on your face, brush on the egg white onto the paper. Repeat till your face is covered, but try not to let the layers of the paper double. Leave on for 15 minutes or till dry, then remove the papers, wash your face only with hot (and then) cold water, et voila! Bright, shiny, glow-y face at your service. 😉
2. First one was too complicated? Here is an easier one for the slower people like me. Take half a tablespoon of honey and mix in yogurt till you get a paste (max 3/4 of the tablespoon). Apply on dried and washed face, keep on for ten minutes and then wash it off, with lukewarm water. Do this twice a week and the results will not disappoint you.
3. Don’t like the tips above? Here is one for the daring ones who don’t mind a little tan in their skin. Take half a tablespoon of ground coffee beans and mix in half as much honey. Use this as a scrub trying to delicately rub off dried damaged skin. Do it only once in two weeks. The effect is instantaneous and when you wash it off with lukewarm water, try not to apply anything else on your face for at least 90 to 120 minutes. The slight issue, as I mentioned before, is a little coffee-flavored tanning.
I don’t religiously take care of my skin-for which my sister is going to soon disown me-but not only can I swear by these three tricks, but I can tell you that it’s these remedies that got a good friend’s skin back from the dogs (read-open pores, pimples, white heads, you name it). So, if your New Year’s resolution (like me) was to take care of your skin and body a little more, these will be an easy way for you to start off. With the added advantage of having no side effects. 😉
I hope these home remedies work amazingly for you too.
Until next time,
