winter colds no more

          As a woman, I like to take care of myself. Especially now, in the winter when it's cold. So, for you, my ladies, i prepared some homemade beauty tips, in order to help you have some fun while getting prettier. 
         It's been said a lot of stuff about coffee... good and bad. I just found out coffee can be your ally when it comes to cellulite. Here's how: 
         * revigorant and exfoliant facial mask:
     Mix 1/4 cup of grounds from when you made coffee with one yolk of an egg. Apply on the face and wait for it to dry. Rinse with warm water.
         * for your hair:
       Make a really strong coffee (e.g. espresso), put some drops of olive oil and some drops of perfume in it. Wait to cool off. Put it on your dry hair for 15-20 minutes. Rinse well.
         * anti - cellulite lotion:
     Mix the grounds left from two coffee cups, with paprika cut very small and some olive oil. Put the mixture on the problem zones, wrap around with plastic foil. After 10-15 minutes rinse.
        For the dark circles under the eyes, wrap a grated raw potato in a cloth, and apply on your lids for 15-20 minutes. Wipe off the residue and then apply eye cream.
        To keep your legs beautiful, take 1 cup Lemon Juice, Cinnamon (for smell), 2 tablespoons (or less) olive oil, 1/4 cup of milk, and water you can make a wash that leaves skin refreshed and fragrant (the amount of water does not matter). Put it in a tub where you can soak your feet or your body. Next dry your feet or rinse them with water and mild soap.
        You love your hands, right? You can mix sugar and lemon juice. Rub it on palms till sugar dissolves. Wash with cold water, and you'll have soft hands again.
         There are plenty tips for your beauty, you just need to moisturize your skin enough and be gentle with it.
         Last but not least, don't forget to enjoy the holidays! 


  1. hm, interesting recipes...
    i would like to try the one for eyes.
    As about the one for "the problem zones", I hope I never need it:))))

  2. yep, they are interesting, and I'm sure they work. I haven't time to try them all yet, but they can do no hurt. I'm planning a day of SPA at my house using these recipes. I wanted to share with everybody about the coffee grounds, 'cause I've never thought it could be used in that way :)... Funny, huh?
