1. Coconut OilWhenever I put on coconut oil, it reminds me of holidays in Thailand, but this is definitely not the only reason I use it!
This sweet-smelling, natural oil has antioxidant properties to combats premature aging, absorbs well into the skin and it doesn't leave any residue.
Coconut oil is also a great tool to keep your hair healthy, shiny and strong. The oil increases circulation on the scalp, supplying nutrients to the hair follicles. Just apply it, starting from the scalp and working it out through to the ends. Massage the head for a few minutes to work the oil well into the follicles. Leave it for 1 hour, then shampoo well and condition.
Yet another great use for coconut oil is as a delicious, gentle exfoliant - just mix it with a little sugar and rub into your body and face.
2.Eyelash and Eyebrow TintingHere are two tips that are great for days swimming and at the beach. No more running mascara and panda eyes when you step out of the pool!
Firstly, to really make your eyes pop, dye the lashes blue-black. Most people's eyelashes are naturally much lighter at the roots and tips, but this way you can leave the house looking like you are wearing mascara when you are not.
This procedure is a must for blondes, and its completely safe and pain free. Most beauty salons can help you with this - it takes around 20 minutes and lasts as long as 6 weeks.
Secondly, using eye brow pencil on your eyebrows will make them look thicker and more defined. Even if you're not wearing makeup, this will stop you getting that washed out look. It should only take you 5 minutes, and it lasts up to 6 weeks.
