  Beauty Secrets Every Girl Would Like To Know (Doll Article)

Since summer's ending and school is approaching fast, I thought I would post some of my favorite beauty secrets to help all the girls look great as they get ready to start a new grade.
As a teenager, my skin is often less than perfect. Facial washes and presriptions can help keep it under control, but of course I get that sudden pimple once in awhile. Here are some tips to help with your face, as well as other parts of your body. These are all cheap but effective, and many of the items needed are common household items.

Toothpaste-It may sound strange, but toothpaste can help reduce swelling and irratation on a zit. Put it on before bed and wake up with a much smaller, much less obvious pimple. Make sure it is the pastey type and not the gel type.

*note-make sure to rinse it off when you wake up!

Visine-The same drops that "get the red out" of your eyes can get the red out of a pimple. Every girl gets one of those red monsters on their face ever once in a while, and Visine will help with the problem. Just soak a q-tip in Visine and then hold it to the pimple for about 10 seconds. Simple!

Sugar-Many girls love to exfoliate themselves with a good sugar scrub, but store bought ones can be expensive. Create one at home that is just as effective.

For the face-Mix a bit of sugar in with a cheap but non irratating facial wash.I like the plain orange colored Equate Acne Wash but it is up to you.Just scrub in in for about 20-30 seconds and rinse out. Do this once a week.

For the feet, hands, and body-Mix some sugar in with some cooking vanilla to create a great smelling scrub. Rub it in to rough areas for about 30 seconds and then rinse.

Vaseline-Vaseline is the best makeup remover you find. Just rub a bit of it on your eyes (while they're closesd, please!) and then rinse it off. Repeat if needed.

Vaseline also can help you exfoliate your lips. Just put a big glob on your lips and scrub with a toothbrush with soft to medium bristles for about 30 seconds. Rinse off.

Crest White Strips-Before I used Crest White Strips I had slighty yellow teeth on top and medium yellow teeth on the bottom. I used Crest White Strips and now I have bright white teeth on top and very, very pale yellow on the bottom. They are pretty affordable and in my experiance, very effective.

*a second box can be used for even better whiteing if desired

WARNING-Everyone's skin is different. What works for some may not work for others. Test on a small, unnoticeable area to make sure you will not have a negative afftect to the product.

Home remedies have a way of biting u in the butt if one little thing goes wrong. For example: u dont know what kind of reaction sugar could have on ur skin. Don't u know that eating sugar is the #1 source of bad acne?! Look it up, its a fact. I recommend Clean&Clear spot acne treatment. This is not for rubbing all over your face, because it is a strong formula. Just apply it to your acne, nothing more. Also, how about you simply stop touching your face and wash it every once in a while??? Its not really that hard...

Thanks very much! Ur a life saver! Actually, if you have a stain on your shirt, whitening tooth paste (regular crest) can help make it un-noticible. (may not work on some fabrics.)

I have bad acne. No point in denying it. I use clindet gel, which does miracles-much clearer. Just put it on once a day. It can black colors out of fabrics, so I use it in day.

and swimming. the chlorine water really helps get rid of zits AND it is great exercise. i was on a swim team over the summer and didn't get on zit, even though normally i have two or three. and i lost, like, over twelve pounds!
