Thats interesting, I am a fan of natural rememdies but still unsure about that one, but cant see what harm it would do on an occasional basis and dont forget the sunscreen as you say.

Honey is amazing if you create a paste with olive oil and sugar it makes a great exfoliator, if you dont use too much honey its not too messy.

Egg white as a face mask brightens the skin , if you've had a late night out it revives it !

yes as i said aspirin is probably not so bad for the skin due to it's healing properties for problem spotty skins, it is made from natural occuring substance from the willow tree and contains salicylic acid. As the other girl said only cause stomach probs if ingested. That's right about the sun protection too, as it does make skin more sensitive to sun exposure, as do ahas and bhas which exfolliate the skin and improve it's appearance.

Spraying the face with hair spray to set make up


i always do this for a night out and a shoot and my skin is great, although i do use alot of moisturiser daily on my face and ive always had good skin.

I dont do alot of beauty things to myself other than the odd fake tan when im going out sometimes :S

Don't spray your face with hairspray, it's not good! There's fixer spray you can buy that will hold your make-up even better without being detrimental to your skin try skindinavia, kryolan or model in a bottle

I'm sitting here now with toothpaste on a spot. Bugger.  I only get them very very occasionally.

Although would be grateful to get tips on reducing open pores. frown

I have used superglue instead of nail glue a few times in the past and I lightly spray my face with hairspray before a night out.

When I'm running out of fake tan I just mix all the brands together and slather it on (I wouldn't do this for a shoot but anything goes for a night on the tiles!)

I've used sellotape as 'tit tape' before and I pile on the dry shampoo to make my roots look blonder.

Guilty as charged, your honour!

PS sodium bi-carb/baking powder as toothpaste. Ick!

I also use old lady purple shampoo to keep it a whiter blonde!

I'm so going to try that aspirin face thing! I have temperamental skin at the moment due to the contraceptive implant I have, and nothing works. I've also used toothpaste on particularly big spots, but it doesn't do anything for me either, except make a mess of my pillow cases. Sudocrem for using after shaving your bikini line is really good. Violet - for open pores I recommend a product by the Boots No7 range. I think it's called 'Pore Refining Serum'. I used it regularly for a year or so as I had very large open pores from showering and bathing too much (I have OCD). And it really, really worked! Brittle nails? Does anyone have any tips for getting rid of those? I've used creams and lots of other things but nothing works. Maybe it's a deficiency of something?

I was at a shoot once and the MUA didn't tell me she was using permanent glue on the individual eye lashes she was putting on - I went to peel them off when I got home (like I ususally would with lashes) and found them stuck, in a panic I tried yanking them off with a load of MY lashes coming out too! I had a shoot the next day so asked the MUA for that shoot if she had any permanent glue remover and thankfully she did but now I double check every time a MUA puts lashes on me - it was a terrifying experience and my lashes have only just fully grown back!!

Think it's probably  to do with a lack of vitamins. Try Biotin tablets - they help with both nails and hair. I took them after having half my hair burned off and found my nail condition improved too. 

Off topic side note: How are you finding the hellhole that is Girvan? (just noticed there on your location...went to school there. Hate the place with a passion.)

Cheers, I'll give those a go. I have anaemia again so it would figure if that had something to do with it too. Girvan is awful. A massive change from living in Glasgow and it doesn't help that I don't know anyone or see my friends. I've been here a month and I'm absolutely miserable. It was meant to be a six month stop-gap for saving and then moving again to Manchester, but I don't think I can stick it that long. I'm doing my best to get moving a lot sooner! Hopefully by June.

That'll probably add to it - been anaemic a few times, played havoc with everything. Best getting the Iron into you!

I really feel for you, that place is hell on Earth - hope you're not out anywhere near the Kiltie flats...awful area. I avoid the place unless I have no other choice. 
I'm only up the road in Ayr if you need to escape for a few hours and get a decent coffee and banter!

thank you smileyI bought some Clinique products a few years ago and they do make a good concealer that must basically be like polyfilla for your pores wink It does make them look better when you've got makeup on but I wondered if there was a more permanent solution. I'll have a look at Boots.

I am trying to convert to totally cruelty-free makeup and toiletries though, and I don't think Boots stuff is at the moment.
