Simply combine equal parts white sugar and oil. Take the mixture into the shower and use it to gently exfoliate your entire body. Be careful because it can get slippery. You are going to be blown away by how soft and smooth your entire body feels when you get dried off.

3 Do a Cellulite Wrap with Coffee Grounds

hair, face, facial expression, person, black hair,We’d all do just about anything to get rid of cellulite, right? While you can’t do that, you can certainly minimize its appearance. Skincare experts suggest gently massaging coffee grounds into your cellulite, then wrapping the area with plastic wrap. Wait 30 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Do this regularly and you should begin seeing results pretty quickly.

4 Use Spray Starch in Place of Dry Shampoo

hair, human action, person, nose, woman,Dry shampoo can be a lifesaver when your hair gets a little greasy, but you don’t have time to wash it. So what’s a girl to do when she runs out of dry shampoo? Spritz on spray starch instead. Because dry shampoo contains starch, the kind you use on your laundry can be just as effective. Spray it about 6 inches from your hair and it should soak up excess oil and leave your hair looking fresh and clean.

Gently press it to the oily areas and it will instantly soak up the grease, leaving you with a matte look in just seconds.

6 Use a Piece of Tape to Guide Your Eyeliner

Instead of trying to master the technique freehand, give yourself a break and use tape. Simply press the tape to your eye where you want the line to go. Then carefully apply your cat’s eye and pull the tape off. You’ll have a flawless eyeliner application each and every time. Perfect!
