Met Gala 2017 – Rei Kawakubo
Although it’s Nearly September, the sun has only really made an appearance in the last few weeks so here are some tips whilst the sun is out!
- FAULTY FLIP-FLOPS
Don’t you just hate it when your flip-flops break? They always seem to break at the worst times, and always in public. This hack makes brilliant use of those extra bobby pins most of us have lying around. If the toe post on your flip flop pops out, simply slip it back through, pull a bobby pin into a “V” shape and slide it around the toe post on the bottom of the shoe. It will keep the toe post from popping out again and save you some embarrassment.
- RED WINE VS WHITE WINE
It’s summer!. Naturally, there’s going to be a lot of alcohol, and whether you’re a red or white kind of person, it’s quite likely a spillage of red wine might occur at some point. If this does happen, one of the quickest and easiest ways to sort it out is to remove the stain with white wine. Make sure you get to work on the stain as quickly as possible, dampen the stain with white wine and dab with a cloth (don’t rub!) Let the stain dry for about 30 minutes and “tadah”, there should be no sign of red! If there is any sign of the stain you could also try using vodka which works too.
- TAN LINE TROUBLE
You can easily fix a troublesome tan line with a good exfoliant, moisturizer, self-tanner and a makeup sponge. When you’re in the shower, exfoliate the area where there are tan-lines. Afterwards, apply a generous amount of moisturizer to the areas of skin that are already tanned so that a barricade between the tan and pale tan lines is created. Lastly, with a makeup sponge, apply self-tanning cream evenly to the pale skin and wait until it’s dried. For the best result, make sure you repeat this routine daily until the tan lines aren’t noticeable.
- GET RID OF SWEAT STAINS WITH LEMON JUICE
Summer’s great, but if there’s one thing about the summer I hate, it’s the sweaty, sticky tube journeys, general lack of air conditioning, and everything else…but don’t be afraid to wear white shirts in fear of sweat stains, because there’s a really simple solution to fix it, a lemon and water solution to be exact! You will need to mix equal parts lemon juice and water, it doesn’t matter how much, just as long as it covers the stain. With a cloth, rub the lemon juice and water onto the stain, let it sit for about 30 minutes and then throw it in the wash.
- USE AVOCADOS TO TREAT SUNBURN
Avocados are truly amazing. They can be used for almost everything, from yummy guacamole to a hydrating hair mask. They’re also great for treating sunburn! Avocados are packed full of healthy fats, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants that help hydrate and nourish the skin. To treat the sunburn, you’ll need to mash up half an avocado, then simply apply it to the skin directly, this will rehydrate the skin and calm the sunburn.
