Shout out to Amanda Harris who tried this and now I’m hooked!
An old Indian recipe for curing (reducing the size) breakouts and Amanda was surprised with the results. It’s a tablespoon of honey and a half of tablespoon of cinnamon. Mix
together and dab over pimple and let stand overnight then wash off in the
morning. Also good on toast!

SAVE MONEY, PREVENT WRINKLES
Aquaphor - buy at local drugstore - approx $8.50
At night you don't need to worry about eye treatments
smearing your makeup, so slather on the richest formula you can. Polis swears by Aquaphor: "It conditions lashes and hydrates the delicate eye skin really well."
Monistat chafing gel - local drugstore $6 (approx)
In the aisle with the tampons, theres a product called Monistat chafing gel.. its the exact same thing as an expensive primer, it cost 6 bucks a tube. Sounds a little weird, but check it out!
Big important F.Y.I.: This is not the Monistat yeast-infection cream; please don't go rubbing that stuff on your face. This anti-chafing balm's main ingredient is the same as many foundation primers': dimethicone. It also contains Vitamin E and aloe, and it's fragrance-free and formulated to let skin "breathe".
The Monistat gel has a nice texture--sort of powdery, as its name implies. It made my skin matte and soft, and my foundation and pimple concealer went on smooth and seamless. I set both with a dab of translucent powder. Check it out: No pores or pimple here!

A GREAT SHAMPOO FOR DRY/ COLORED HAIR
Ion Keratin Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner – 6.99 at
Sally Beauty submitted by Jessica from Browns Summit
It makes your hair really shiny and smooth and is good for damaged or dry hair. It's also sulfate-free so it's safe for colored hair too. It’s also very affordable!
I love to try new products, but eventually keep returning to this shampoo. My hair is shoulder length, dry, color treated and fine. It gives my hair body, shine, and virtually tangle free. I always use the Ion Keratin Smoothing masque at the ends and work up after shampooing. I blowdry and style with a curling iron. Simple. I have
shiny frizz free hair and nothing compares to this product. If I switch, always come back to it. It is the best."
