Baking Soda

So I have this friend Janeth. She has the most beautiful pore less skin you will ever see. Like literally, not a pore in sight. So I asked her what she does or uses. And this girl swears by baking Soda.

She said once a week, she mixes baking Soda with her face cleanser to create a paste. And she rubs this paste on her face in circular motions. She said this is what cleans her pore out. So I started doing it and I’ve noticed a huge difference.

Next she mixed it in her toothpaste once a week to clean her teeth and keep them bright white. I’ve started doing this and it really works. If you mix in some hydrogen peroxide, it works even better.

And then lastly she drinks a spoonful in water. This help keep her gut clean. You just have to be careful if you drink it too fast. Because then, you’ll want to be close to a bathroom if you know what I mean. I haven’t tried this yet, but I plan too.

So many different uses for Baking Soda. I had no idea.

Longer Lashes

My girlfriend and I have talked about how we wish we had longer fuller lashes. She even tried Lash Extensions. But it’s just so expensive.

We talked about the lash serum from another beauty company but just couldn’t afford it. Then I joined Avon, and found Anew Unlimited Lash Serum. This serum starts to work in as little as 4 weeks. Just apply to your lashes and brows, if you desire, once daily. And in as little as four weeks, you will have noticeably longer lashes.

And the cost of this is half of what you would pay with other beauty brands. But the results are just as good. Check out this before and after picture.

Deet Free

Living in Northwest Arkansas, with the beautiful Ozark Mountains, we tend to get tons of mosquitos, ticks, and chiggers. So using a bug spray is a must.

But ones that contain Deet, you want to stay far far away from. Deet, is an yellow colored oil that repels mosquitos. However, it is a chemical that some say is toxic. Especially when inhaled.

With Avon, Bug Guard gives you protection from mosquitos and bugs and it’s Deet Free. It also has spf to protect you from the harmful rays of the sun.

Here in Arkansas, besides mosquitos, we fear ticks. Bug Guard Plus is the one for me and my family. I never go on a hike with my husband and kids without it.

Blur Imperfections

I wanted to find something for my face that wasn’t as heavy as foundation. I wanted light coverage because I don’t want to have to wear full makeup every day to work.

So I tried Avon Magix Tint, tinted moisturizer. Let me tell you, this stuff feels great. It covers just enough and doesn’t feel heavy. It’s perfect on those 90% humidity days here.

I even wore it to the rodeo where I was dripping sweat from the heat. And it lasted and looked great. Here have a look:
