If you want your baby to grow up to have thick, healthy hair, drinking coconut water while you’re pregnant may help.
“Drinking pure coconut water is good for your hair, and for your fetus’ hair as well when you are pregnant. My 70-something grandma, and 50-something mom still have their thick and shiny black hair.” – MOM’S TIP 1
*Make sure you consult a physician before changing your diet during pregnancy.
Taking a bath with essential oils can help you relax and reduce stress-induced acne.
“Pamper yourself with a hot bath with essential oils once a week. Apparently the hot water clears up your skin, and it also helps you to relax, which results in less stress-related wrinkles and acne. I suffer from really bad stress-induced acne, so I like to use lavender oils and it has honestly helped me so much! I definitely recommend following my mother’s advice, if you suffer from any stress-induced skin problems.” – MOM’S TIP 2
A toothbrush and hairspray can become your new eyebrow kit.
“My mother is a makeup artist and she swears by this simple hack: take a toothbrush dedicated to beauty purposes, spray a little hairspray on it, and then use it to shape eye brows and slick down hairs without them being crunchy. She once got in trouble at a the store she worked at because she told a customer who wanted to buy an expensive brow kit about it.” — MOM’S TIP 3
Need an eye cream and healthy lashes? Just get some Vaseline!
“My mom and grandma both put Vaseline around their eyes and on their eyelashes because they swear it keeps wrinkles away and helps your lashes stay healthy!” — MOM’S TIP 4
Olive oil can be great for salads…and removing makeup.
“Always use olive oil to take off your makeup! When I started wearing makeup I would get really frustrated that there was still makeup leftover after going in with a makeup remover wipe and she said to use about a nickel size amount of olive oil! For three reasons: It completely removes all the makeup, it doesn’t leave your face feeling like it’s dry and oily at the same time, and because it allegedly helps prevent wrinkles from forming. I don’t know about the last one but it completely removed my makeup and I wasn’t breaking out.” – MOM’S TIP 5
A large glass of hot water with a splash of rose water will have you looking fab at 50 and 75.
“My mom and grandma look phenomenal and no one ever believes that my mom is almost 50 and my grandma has already past 75. Their secret is this: a large glass of hot water in the morning every morning with a splash of rose water. They say that it kick-starts the body every morning and keeps everything functioning smoothly, which makes them look and feel young and healthy.” – MOM’S TIP 6
Bathe in Aquaphor if you want to wake up with flawless skin.
“Slather your face in Aquaphor before you sleep. You’ll wake up with baby soft skin.” – MOM’S TIP 7
If you want to look taller, dress in the same color from head to toe.
“My mom was watching some talk show and they had a guest speaker mention how if you’re short you should wear the same color to appear taller. She took it too literally and would wear the same shade, shoes to headwear.”- MOM’S TIP 8
