Brilliant Uses for Baby Powder You’ve Never Considered







Baby powder is not just for babies. This sweet smelling white powder can do so much more than simply ward off diaper rash. In fact, there are many different uses for baby powder that you probably never considered.
The best part is that baby powder is relatively inexpensive.  Baby powder has so many uses that you’ve probably never even though.

 

Make a dry shampoo

You just sprinkle it onto your comb and then run the comb through your hair to the roots. It removes oil and grease and makes your hair look freshly washed. Plus, it smells great so your hair will smell freshly washed, too. This works really well for blondes (or greys). If you are a brunette, add just a touch of cocoa powder to the baby powder before combing it through. Redheads can add a bit of cinnamon. Not only will your hair look great, it will smell amazing and stay that way until your next shower.

Plump Eyelashes

Before you apply mascara, dust just a tiny bit of baby powder on your lashes. The result is plumper lashes that look longer and fuller. While you’re at it, use baby powder to set your makeup. By removing facial oils, baby powder helps to keep your makeup intact all day or all night. 

Baby powder can also be mixed with makeup that is a bit too dark. If your contour powder is a shade or two too dark for instance, just mix in a bit of baby powder to lighten it up.

Soothe Dry Skin

Baby powder can work much like a moisturizer to help soothe extra dry skin. If you have rough patches on your feet, elbows, or anywhere else, just rub a bit of baby powder into those areas. While it does remove moisture, baby powder on its own is great for helping your skin to feel smoother and less irritated. It’s a great solution for cracked heels and other skin irritations. After all, you use it on your baby so why wouldn’t it be safe for you? Keep it on hand throughout the summer and winter months when your skin tends to get really dried out.

Make deodorant

You just sprinkle a handful of baby powder into the palm of your hand and rub it into your underarms. It works great to eliminate sweaty odors and baby powder naturally absorbs moisture so it will keep you dry and fresh all day. Did we mention that it also smells amazing?



Do you use baby powder too? I have to start using it. Even though I have a baby at home, I only used it few times. I guess it's time to start using it, and save some money:-)


Have a nice day.

Pop up colours


Hi All,

It's been a while when I was active on my blog.....I was sick. To be honest I'm struggling with this pregnancy, every day brings so much pain:-( But this is not something I wanted to talk. I wanted to show you my outfit full of pop up colours. It screams- bring on summer:-) In between rain and wind, we have some sunny spells. Feels great when the sun is shinning:-)













I was wearing MANGO jacket, the dress is from my hometown, ZARA necklace and heels.

Have a great day everyone xxxx

ZARA heels on the way:-)


I wouldn't be a true woman if I didn't love shoes. ahhhhh even when I'm thinking of what's on the way, I have a smile on my face!

I ordered recently few......, well maybe more than few items from ZARA. And now I'm waiting very impatiently for them.

My belly is growing and I'm struggling to find clothes in my wardrobe that I feel good in. I didn't tell you guys before, but I'm 22 weeks pregnant. This time I want to be so done with being pregnant:-( Unfortunately this pregnancy is rather a struggle for me, besides I'm not the person who loves being pregnant any way. So rather that moaning how I feel, I'm going to show you some things that I ordered:-)














I cannot wait to get them:-) Do you have any favourites? I love the most the last ones, great colour combination:-)

Happy Friday everyone

Sunday stroll along the Dún Laoghaire pier

Hiya All,

How was your weekend? I'm not feeling too good, well, a bit of cold I suppose. So, I didn't do much during the weekend. On Sunday I went with my family for a little stroll along Dún Laoghaire pier and we've had a lovely Italian lunch. It was delicious. I could eat seafood nearly every day!!! Nom, nom 

The weather in here got a bit weird: snow, rain and sun. Hard to know what to wear, because in the morning is really cold and then around 12 could be really warm.
Hope you guys have better weather than we do have.


























I was wearing MANGO coat, jeans  & shirt, H&M scarf, PRADA sunglasses and PRIMARK ballerinas.

Avocado Face Mask for Dry Skin



This classic recipe for dry skin involves only 2 ingredients: avocados and honey which are particularly moisturizing. 
Avocado is great source of vitamins B, K and E. It’s important for your body to get a sufficient amount of vitamin B, it helps your metabolism work better which leads to a healthier skin tone. Avocados also contain monosaturated fat that is necessary for our health. They are high in fibre. Insoluble fibre does a great job in cleaning out the bowel. Avocado is great for weight control, because it turns into a gel that sits in your stomach for some time when it comes in contact with water, so you feel full for longer.
This mask works well on mature, wrinkled and dry skin (not sure if you have dry skin? It's best to use a ripe, fresh, organic avocado. Make sure to mash it up into a creamy pulp.





Ingredients

  • ½ very ripe, soft avocado
  • ¼ cup honey
You can also add a dollop of cream to your mask for a creamier consistency.
For dry skin, crack in one egg yolk and mix well. For oily skin add egg whites!

Preparation

Mash the avocado in a bowl, then stir in honey.
Apply to skin and leave for 10 minutes.
Rinse face with a cool washcloth.



Don’t waste the left overs! Use the left over mask for your hair! It works wonders and makes your hair soft and nourished.

have a great day
