KEEPING FRESH ON A HOT DAY
Yes, it's hot, and you feel sapped of all energy. Here's one quick way of reviving yourself: splash ice-hold water on your face. It will bring back the colour to your face, as cold water does wonders for your blood circulation, thereby making you look fresh as a rose. What's more, the effect can last for several hours.
However, if you start feeling hot and listless once again, repeat the splashing, as often as possible. For people who use no make up, this is one super way of staying naturally fresh all day long. If you do use makeup, you can try this remedy at home once you've removed the makeup. The ice-cold water will rejuvenate your skin. Rubbing a piece of ice also helps.
MUST HAVES IN YOUR HAND BAG
With just a couple of make-up tools, you can make yourself look fresh and perfect through the day. Even if you know you should have some make-up in your bag, you land up not having it when you need it the most. Here's a checklist of must-haves to freshen up during the day: Deodorant spray
Either eyeliner/kohl or blush-on
Lipstick/liner/gloss in a shade that goes with most colours you wear Brush/comb.
GET RID OF DEAD CELLS ON YOUR SKIN
You may never see them, but they could be all over your skin. And you have to get rid of them. If your skin has a misty, grey tinge, it's the dead cells that are giving it that colour. By using facial scrubs and exfoliates, you can scrub off dead cells from the skin's surface. Your skin will then look fresh and smooth. However, if you have acne, avoid this treatment, as scrubbing irritates and aggravates this condition.
