SPRING CLEAN YOUR SKIN WITH TEA BAGS…

After a long harsh winter, our skins need to be brought back to life again with a scrub using natural exfoliants.

Try these two mixtures from Prima Magazine...

Mix together half the contents of a rose and vanilla tea bag, with 20ml borage oil and 2 drops each rose, frankincense and geranium essential oils.

Apply to your face and other areas of your body that need exfoliating like your elbows, knees, backs and arms. Rinse off in the shower. Only use half the quantity if you are only doing your face.

Mix together half the contents of a camomile flower tea bag with 20 ml of jojoba oil, plus 2 drops each camomile, yarrow and mandarin essential oils. Apply to your face and areas of your body that need exfoliating like above. Exfoliate with gentle circular motions. Rinse off in the shower.

#ELLE’S TIPS ON HOW TO FIX A BROKEN NAIL WITH A TEABAG…

How to fix a broken nail with a teabag from Elle Beauty.

Step 1: Clip the broken nail as close to the fingertip as you can.

Step 2: Using a glass or crystal file, gently file any snags, but be sure to avoid the split itself.

Step 3: Trim a tea bag or paper coffee filter to the size of a small patch that can cover the break in the nail.

Step 4: Paint the broken nail with a generous coat of clear polish.

Step 5: While the clear polish is tacky, gently place the trimmed tea bag/coffee filter over the broken part of the nail (It may be helpful to use a tweezer to hold and apply the tea bag segment).

Step 6: Allow it to dry. Then cover the nail with one or two more coats of clear polish.

Step 7: After the clear polish has dried you can polish with the color of your choice to camouflage the tea bag.
