Secret overnight fixes. β™₯️

πŸ˜€ Good Evening fellow bloggers…. This post comes with experience. It’s a few secrets from ME to YOU.. Below I leave you with quick solutions to some really annoying problems. I hope it helps you as much as it helps me! 

πŸ”ΉMy lips are usually always peeling especially when it comes to winter, around this time of the year. I tend to suffer with winter lips, which can be very uncomfortable, and not very appealing either. I’m sure at some point, you needed a quick fix for your lips, because for instance you have an interview the next morning and want to look and feel your best! Here’s what I do daily before I go to bed, I use the body shop lip butter. 😍I saw it on sale and figured it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try, this was the best decision I could have made. 

πŸ‘„ I apply it to my lips overnight. It has a creme base, which gives off like a pinkish-white color. All you need to do is massage it into your lips and you will see the colour disappearing (this is only if you are using it during the day) otherwise when going to bed it can be left like that, it also comes in different flavours, and my ultimate favorite would be strawberry. It has a sweet strawberry scent to it. 😍 

  
πŸ”ΉAnother issue I sometimes have is a pimple which decides to pop in the middle of my face! Or anywhere on my face for that matter. πŸ˜” it can be painful and very stubborn, so after trying almost any and every product or home remedy, I came across two that really work. πŸ‘‡πŸ»

πŸ‘‰πŸ» 1) Acne and Pimple Cream by Himalaya. ~ yes this will always be my first option! All you have to do is apply it to the affected area and leave it overnight, the next morning your zit will be almost, to fully dried out. It also brings down the inflammation in that area making the zit 1/2 of its size. (NB- please make sure to read the ingredients of the product before applying it to your skin due to any allergens)

πŸ‘‰πŸ» 2) My second best would be toothpaste! A cheap easy fix and every household should have this, well I’m hoping so πŸ˜‰. Apply this for as long as your skin can handle it. It does usually burn abit but eventually the pain subsides. I use it on a zit overnight and it also dries it up and decreases it in size. 

πŸ”ΉIf you’re a foundation person, you can usually cover up the zit by concealing and then applying foundation over. Just remember to wash your makeup off at night, as this is the number one reason why your skin gets clogged and causes all types of pimples, and also you will be prone to ageing skin. 

πŸ”ΉπŸ‘€ Another problem most people face is not enough sleep, causing your eyes to swell. Literally the best and probably the only way I have found to work, is cutting a cold cucumber and applying it to the eyes! It soothes the eyes, as well as bringing the puffiness down. 

– Potatoes are also great at bringing down puffiness! It has anti inflammatory properties which helps getting rid of the bags from your under your eyes! 

πŸ”Ήβ˜•οΈ trying to get rid of mouth ulcers? Pamper yourself with a cup of tea! Before adding the milk, remove the teabag and set aside to cool down abit. Apply it to the affected area in the mouth. This can be done as many times as needed. After a few days, the mouth ulcer will be healed. 😊 

Have any of you tried any of the above? 😘 Let me know what has worked for you, maybe I could learn a thing or two as well. ☺️

  1. I love The Body Shop Lip Butters, I also have the Strawberry one! And one thing I do to get rid of spots is to dab on honey on it and then put a plaster over it and in the morning, it’ll be practically gone! xx

  2. Great post – thank you! I haven’t tried the lip butters but I think I will. And one of my boys is always complaining about chapped lips so hopefully I can find a boy friendly scent for him. I have heard of the toothpaste trick. Haven’t tried it though. OMG, a month ago? I got a zit and I messed with it and it didn’t go away for several weeks (so it was 2 months ago it started). I swear it was horrifying. I picked and made the ugliest mess. I didn’t want to go to work it was that bad. LOL

    1. Yes the body shop has some really nice flavours, ranging for both sexes πŸ˜‹ he must use it constantly, every night till he finds a difference. I found a difference in a few days! Literally the toothpaste trick really works! I was abit nervous when I first tried it out, but the results were great! Hope it helps for you too? And I know that feeling abt wanting to hide because that big zit is just about covering your whole face πŸ˜‚

  3. I love the Body Shop lip scrubs! I’ve heard that Lush has some really tasty ones as well. Toothpaste is definitely an amazing remedy for pimples I’ve found, just as long as you don’t put it near your eyes because I’ve had some reallllly irritated eyes before from the strong mint scent wafting up! Hahaha
