Spice up your glow:
For a tropical, sun-kissed glow, mix a tiny pinch of turmeric into your moisturizer. There’s even an extra-added reward. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory so it’s also a great tonic for the skin.
Make your own tinted moisturizer:
For smoother looking skin, mix a drop or two of your favorite foundation into a dollop of moisturizer.
Try this easy-to-mix exfoliant:
Add a teaspoon of olive oil to a cup of kosher salt. Mix well. Gently massage into skin. Rinse off well in tepid shower water.
Moisturize to the maximum:
Rub a few drops of olive oil into wet skin immediately after shower. Dab excess oil off with bath towel.
Quick faux glow for legs:
Create the illusion of a glowing Caribbean tan by using a large blush style brush to lightly color front and back of legs with bronzing powder.
Brighten your smile:
Make your own tooth whitening toothpaste by mixing one teaspoon of baking soda with a half capful of hydrogen peroxide. Brush teeth thoroughly to remove stains and whiten smile.
