😱GET RID OF DRY FLAKEY SKIN INSTANTLY! .
🤫This is the easiest, cheapest DIY you will EVER DO.. and it will CHANGE YOUR SKIN!
.
🐻Ok so winter is here and pretty much im in hibernation like yogi bear but in combination with the slap you in the face kind of bitter cold weather and then the dry as hellllll heat that I blast in my house.. my skin is just like NO MAAM IM A THIRStY BIH so long story short, this is how I fixed it.
.
🙌🏽everything you need is in pretty much in 99.9% of all of your kitchens! .
💧#1 - Apply your fav moisturizer -im using @farsalicare Rose Gold Elixir - Use whatever works for you and BE GENEROUS! If you’re acne prone then apply a normal amount
🔥#2 - Boil some water and add a bag of green tea (if you dont have green tea WHY DONT YOU.. also, you can add another tea or just use the water plain)
💦#3 - steam your face for 10-15 mins
🧟‍♀️#4 - wrap in plastic wrap immediately to trap the heat! ALWAYS make holes for breathing because breathing is an essential for life.
🧝🏽‍♀️#5 - remove the plastic wrap
🍵#6 - dip a CLEAN washcloth in your green tea and microwave for a few seconds
🌧#7 - use the towel to gently steam exfoliate your face until the towel gets cold
😛#8 - have instantly moisturized skin that doesn’t have dry flakes anymore!!!
.
💀If your skin is SUPER dry and flakey then do this twice a week until it goes away completely! You can see my skin went from dusty, dry and tired to tight and hydrated instantly with just one use! like I just had botox!
.
👏🏾WHY THIS WORKS SO FAST:
Green tea - unclogs pores, gives your skin anti-oxidants, reduces irritation and redness,
Steam - softens your skin and helps get rid of dead skin cells, helps skin absorb skincare better, clears pores, removes toxins, and encourages blood circulation
Plastic wrap - creates a “sauna” face mask to instantly fix dry skin
Steam towel - goes 1 step further to exfoliate and remove dry skin - and instantly gives you tight, botox looking skin

I tried the “If you can’t afford a Dyson air wrap” hack…🙊
.
💦All you need to do is cut the top off a water bottle and then cut an oval shaped little hole for your blow drier to enter into and let it work its magic!! A good quality bottle is important so I went with a thicker plastic one like smart water!
.
🍼The water bottle gets HOT and I dunno about heat damage cuz water bottle curling isn’t backed by intense scientific research but what I can confirm is that it works very well to give you some sexy bedhead waves! If you want to hear/see my full thoughts click the link in my bio there’s a full vid on my YouTube ❤️
.
If you dont want to hold a water bottle on your head and blow air through it, you can also get this style by spraying your hair with water/gel and tying bantu knots.
.
🤷🏽‍♀️Would you try this? 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

Id like to call this look… when someone shows you their true colours 🐍🐍🐍
.
😊halloween isn’t my thing fam.. I think its mostly because for my entire childhood I just dressed up like the little Indian girl I actually am (minus that one time I dressed up like Mr. Bean…that def brought all the boys to the yard)
.
👌🏾this look is easy + perfect for last min..just snatch your face like you normally would (I’m goin heavy cuz my skin is 👎🏽 atm)and then for the peeling skin use Elmers glue or latex or a mixture of milk+ gelatine. Then use some fishnet stockings to get the scales. I used direcsil face shield patch, which is supposed to be used to protect acne against make up, but it doesn’t perform very well as you can see it makes you look like a peely mess but its perfect for this🤷🏽‍♀️I have no clue how some ppl use full face peel off masks.. Im so hairy I think I was meant to be born a gorilla but then got switched to human last min cuz maaaaaann peeling this stuff off was like waxing my goatee🙊

🤷🏽‍♀️HOW TO FIX DRY, BRITTLE HAIR!🤷🏾‍♂️
.
🤔Do you have ROUGH, DRY hair?
😑Does your hair BREAK EASILY?
😴Does your hair GROW SLOW?
😵Does your hair look DEAD because its DRY?
🤫Is your hair FRIZZY?
👌🏾Do you love the look of hair SO SHINY and HEALTHY it looks like GLASS?
YES? Well then THIS IS FOR U!
.
⛄️In the cold weather, no matter HOW “perfect” your hair is … it still gets affected by the cold bitter air. It gets dry, static, knotted (especially for me and my long hair…scarves + long hair = giant hair ball) so I like to use my easy #DIY leave in conditioner after I wash my hair to not only get SUPER HYDRATED hair, but EXTRA SHINY HAIR!
.
👵🏾I shared this recipe on my youtube 6 years ago (ahhhh time flies), and I still use it to this day…but with little tweaks to create THE PERFECT mixture for helping dry brittle hair! .
ALL YOU NEED:
🌿ROSEMARY LEAVES (fresh is the best, but you can also use dried rosemary or rosemary tea)
🌸LAVENDER LEAVES (you can use lavender tea for this, fresh lavender, essential oil etc)
🥒ALOE VERA (if you’re allergic, sub 1 tbsp of glycerin instead)
.
🥃Boil rosemary leaves + lavender in 1 CUP of WATER until it turns brownish
🍦Scoop out the precious aloe vera + blend until it turns into a liquid (make sure its runny!)
🌬Once the rosemary has COOLED COMPLETELY, mix the two together and pour into a bottle to use
.
💦I APPLY THIS ON FRESHLY WASHED (shampooed) HAIR - you can STYLE your hair with this, or let it air dry! Perfect for ALL HAIR TYPES!
😄one of my fav things about this- it prevents your hair from getting oily fast!
💁🏽‍♀️Store in the fridge for up to 1-2 weeks
.
😱WHY YOU NEED TO DO THIS:
ROSEMARY:
✅Makes hair GLOSSY (so shiny it looks like glass)
✅PROMOTES HAIR GROWTH
✅Prevents greying of hair
✅STOPS DANDRUFF
✅Prevents DRY SCALP
LAVENDER:
✅HELPS HAIR GROW THICKER+STRONGER
✅Stops HAIR LOSS
✅CONDITIONS HAIR
ALOE VERA:
✅hydrates + conditions hair
✅reduces dandruff
✅maintains healthy scalp
✅it makes hair SUPER soft + SHINY + HEALTHY

.
😍Lately I’ve been obsessed with looking completely matte…. heres my fav way to wear an ALL MATTE look that takes less than a few mins every morning and is perfect for everyday!
.
😒OK to begin.. I got really excited to try this lip plumper cuz it looked interesting and at first It felt like it was working cuz of all the tingling but its the most painful lip plumper of all time ..I felt like my lips were chewed up and the plump doesn’t last... I ended up with a weird plump moustache...no ma’am my regular moustache is more than enough for me tysm👨🏾
.
🌟I’m using @farsalicare ROSE GOLD ELIXIR to moisturize my chewed up lips

🤷🏽‍♀️HAS YOUR HAIR BEEN SHEDDING?! Mine was shedding SO MUCH over the summer and I low key started to freak out!… so I started using this and now I feel MUCH BETTER. Its a super INEXPENSIVE way to make your hair STRONGER from THE ROOT.. which results in HEALTHIER HAIR, LESS SHEDDING and STRONGER, SHINY hair..and as a bonus.. THIS ALSO helps STIMULATE HAIR GROWTH!
.
HOW?💁🏽‍♀️
🤓ALL YOU NEED IS:
🦊GINGER - a good chunk of it - I don’t use measurements for this I just break off a chunk
🌱ALOE VERA LEAF - I don’t know why I don’t have a plant growing in my garden I USE THIS SO MUCH! … actually I do know.. I am not a very good garden mom cuz y’kno..spiders and me not wanting to be Spider-Man and all
.
🌪BLEND! initially it’ll look like your aloe isn’t going to blend but just give it a few seconds and it’ll turn into a watery consistency
🌧strain the mixture after BLENDING..u don’t want ginger flakes in your hair
💦Pour into a spray bottle for easier application-spray ONTO YOUR ROOTS
.
🔥If you want to spray this ALL OVER YOUR HAIR you CAN! Its great for your skin too as a toner for glowing skin! but in todays video Im just using it on my scalp
🧕🏾wrap your hair in a silk scarf/silk bonnet + go to sleep. Wash out in morning - you don’t HAVE to wash it out if you don’t want.
👌🏾Do this as often as you can. If you’re sensitive it CAN tingle
❄️Store in the fridge
Ps. Hair shedding is normal... but it can shed more than usual so jus keep an 👀out 😊
.
💥Why this works:
GINGER:
🔸-Ginger stimulates blood flow to scalp.. pushes hair follicles to grow hair faster
🔸-high in fatty acids -prevents your hair from thinning/shedding
🔸-contains magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and other vitamins that your hair needs to be beautiful and healthy
🔸-strengthens follicle to grow strong healthy thick hair that doesn’t shed
ALOE VERA:
✅hydrates and conditions your hair
✅reduces dandruff
✅maintains healthy scalp
✅it makes your hair SUPER soft and SHINY + HEALTHY

❤️Happy anniversary to the only man who gives me butterflies in my tummy every time he looks at me @lifeofsal (And no babe it’s not just gas 🙄😊)
.
🙏🏾Also.. just wanted to say: thank you for always leaving just 1 square left on the toilet paper roll - while some might find this annoying, I appreciate you not leaving it empty. By doing this consistently over the years, you’ve taught me that less is more.
.
🙅🏾‍♀️Also thank you for killing spiders for me...it means a lot to know that you understand that I just can’t take on the responsibility of being spider man at this time in my life.
.
🕷Also double thank you for leaving the dead spiders body on the floor where you killed it- because apparently it’ll send a message to the rest of the spider gang to not fux with us, and while I understand the concept, I would totally understand if you just flushed it.
.
🤷🏽‍♀️Also thank you for feeding me when I’m angry, because you know that I’m actually just hungry, and I’m not me when I’m hungry.
.
😊Also thank you for leaving me alone but also paying attention to me at the same time.
.
❄️Also thank you for unwillingly giving me your warm back to heat up my cold hands and feet
.
👫And most importantly, thanks for being my bestest friend in the whole world and watching Bob’s burgers with me every night and for responding to me every time I say “Hey Jimmy Jr” in Tina’s voice.
LYSM forever @lifeofsal 😊❤️

GET RID OF ACNE, DARK SPOTS, DARK CIRCLES, FACIAL HAIR and get GLOWING SKIN with THIS ONE MASK! 😱As a teenager, I had the kind of acne that sits under your skin, looks bumpy, and red and lives rent free on your face. THE WORST! I also had a bad habit of picking at it cuz I thought if I stab it, it will die and never return.. NOPE. It was so frustrating and I always felt so self conscious about it esp since I wasn’t really allowed to wear foundation etc to cover it up 😞I couldn’t believe that something home made could work on my skin, but in desperation, I gave in, I listened to my grandma and my mom made it for me.. and my LIFE was forever changed. Literally. If you’re struggling with acne and uneven skin, or you’ve never tried diy before.. please let this be the one. ❤️This is what made me fall in love with #DIY… this was the first mask I EVER posted on youtube and I’ve literally had people hug me in the street and cry and tell me how this has also helped THEIR acne and over all skin, when nothing else worked. This one mask DOES IT ALL, and its a simple, not so secret, desi recipe.

ALL YOU NEED:
🍑1 cup chickpea flour - 🌶1 tsp turmeric (use less if you have fair skin) 🥜1 tsp almond oil
🍼1/2 cup milk (vegans - use almond milk)
🍯Mix it up until you get a paste
💁🏽‍♀️Apply onto clean skin
🤫Let it dry COMPLETELY
🤪Slightly wet it and massage off in circular motions
Put leftovers in fridge!
✊🏾I challenge you to use this twice a week for 1 month. Thats what I did to get rid of my acne and this is still one of my GO-TO masks to this very day! 🙏🏾WHY THIS WORKS:
Chickpea flour - zinc kills acne + exfoliates skin
Turmeric - anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant rich, fades acne scars and heals broken skin - turmeric DOES stain but its only temporary.. wear clothes you don’t mind spilling on and if it stains your skin, use a toner to easily remove it
Almond oil - helps lighten dark spots
Milk - contains acids and all sorts of vitamins to soothe and hydrate skin 👇🏽👇🏽Tag a friend you’d turn yellow with and don’t forget to 👍🏾👍🏾like this video to help ya girl out fam! ❤️❤️❤️
