You’re beautiful, naturally. But there is nothing wrong with wanting to boost your looks. You don’t need lots of money or expensive products to feel beautiful.
Lovely lashes Add a few drops of castor oil to a piece of cotton wool and apply it to your eyelashes before bed. You can also use your fingers to rub the oil onto your lashes.
Luscious lips Lipstick isn’t the only solution to making your lips look beautiful. The trick is keeping your lips moisturised, so make friends with Vaseline.
Pearly whites Three words — bicarbonate of soda! Mix a few teaspoons with lemon juice or water to make a paste, wipe your teeth so there’s no saliva, put the paste on a tooth brush, apply the paste and leave for a minute then rinse. Once a week is enough.
Gorgeous glow Try any of these: mix two tablespoons of lemon juice and sugar, apply on your face for ten minutes then rinse with warm water. Or, mash a ripe banana, mix in two tablespoons of oil, apply to your face, leave for 20 minutes then wash off with water. You can also rub the pulp of a tomato all over your face and leave for 15 minutes before rinsing with cold water.
Look after yourself Quick fixes are great, but don’t forget you’re in this skin for a long time. Eat as much fruit and vegetables as possible (why not grow spinach and cabbage in the backyard?), get enough sleep (eight hours is best) and drink at least eight glasses a day. Your skin and body will thank you.
