  • Nail biting - tips that could help you stop nail biting
    could help you stop nail biting for a while at least Ground pepper My mom was losing faith in her parenting abilities after she had tried every possible measure to defer me from the habit After a while a friend advised her to dip my fingertips in ground pepper It actually worked for a while This nail biting remedy works the same as the stop nail biting nail polishers Their taste is disgusting enough to stop you from putting fingers in your mouth Acrylic nails I tried them once And had them on for a month or so And they looked beautiful The downside was my inability to use my hands because I was not used to having nails Then I decided to try and cut them a bit which cracked one nail down the middle All my frustration focused on removing the nail I did so with my teeth I actually went ahead and bit them all off and continued biting my semi recovered nails So that did not work for me but I know people who say it does It is a mental barrier you can not get to them easily so you decide to leave them alone Nail polisher A nail polisher works on the same principle What a difference our nails look nice for a change It would be a good idea to apply a really pricey nail polisher the price might help prevent you from nail biting Deciding to stop There are people who wake up one day and decide to stop biting their nails It requires determination because it is a persistent habit like all habits are My friend Carol knew my pain She used to bite her nails so bad it was not unusual to see her fingers wrapped up in band aid

  • Home spa recipes - Affordable luxury
    My all time favorite is a peppermint foot soak recipe It is very refreshing after a long day Here is how you can prepare it Ingredients Water enough to cover your feet and reach your ankles 3 drops of peppermint essential oil 1 drop of eucalyptus essential oil and 1 drop of lemon essential oil these two are optional but aid the invigorating sensation of this foot soak Preparation Boil water and let it cool down a bit Add the oils and soak feet as long as you like You don t have to compromise with foot soaks There are plenty of foot soak recipes to choose from Once you are done with a foot soak move on to the foot scrub The basic one is Salt foot scrub that takes minutes to prepare Ingredients 1 cup of sea salt or Epsom salt 1 2 cup of cold water 2 drops of lavender essential oil Preparation Start off by gradually adding water to salt and lavender oil As you are adding it you want to make sure the mix starts looking like a paste It has to be not too liquid and not too solid it should be like soft though otherwise it will run between your fingers Rub your feet and soles in circular motion Rinse off with warm water This and other foot scrub recipes are custom made as not all of us enjoy the same fragrances and effects these scrubs have Facial scrubs or facial exfoliants recipes are used before applying facial masks The reason behind this is that by exfoliating the dead skin cells and opening the pores you allow all the good ingredients from facial masks to penetrate deeper and act with more power The honey based facial scrub is a perfect way to cleanse your face Not only does it open clogged pores honey has a high antibacterial power that will leave your face smooth and bacteria free Ingredients 1 teaspoon of honey 2 teaspoons of finely ground almonds not salted ones just regular 1 2 teaspoon of lemon juice Gently rub the face don t press too hard you ll scratch yourself Continue by using a facial mask Since we all have different skin types the best way to go is to actually find out which facial mask is appropriate for which skin type Body scrub recipes should be used after taking a shower so that the skin cells can slough off faster The most popular one certainly is Brown sugar body scrub Ingredients 2 tablespoons brown sugar 2 tablespoons ground oats 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel 1 tablespoon honey 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice 1 teaspoon almond oil in case you don t have almond oil use olive oil it is a great substitute Preparation Before you start preparing this scrub grind the oatmeal using a coffee grinder or food processor It has to be of sandy consistency flaky and light otherwise it will scratch the skin Mix all the ingredients
