Beauty Tips. Yeah, I Have Beauty Tips. Why Are You So Surprised? That’s Rude.

Believe it or not, I actually do put some effort into looking my best. Sure, it might not be as much effort as I put into avoiding aliens, preparing for the apocalypse, or taking advantage of jazz hand opportunities, but there is definitely a non-zero effort put into looking good.

Of course, as befits an odd girl such as myself, my beauty tips might be a bit on the odd side. But they work. I think. It could be one of those things where you convince yourself something works because you were already inclined to believe it would work but it doesn’t work in reality, but it kind of does because you believe it. I think that’s called matrixing.

1. Wash your face with honey. I literally slather honey on my face every morning and every night. And then I just let it sit there, and maybe sometimes some of it slides into my mouth and it tastes good but that is totally not why I’m putting it on my face. But it is delicious. Also, you have to use Manuka honey from New Zealand. Because it’s very special. And delicious. And my skin is really clear and nice now. And my tea is never honey-less so WIN-WIN.

2. Put coconut oil in your tea. And your bath. And on your skin after your bath. It’s good for you inside and out! And your skin will never be softer and you will never smell more tropically. And also there are health benefits. Google it.

Ok. So, I have two tips. Which, isn’t like, many. But it’s more than none. Also, I’m realizing now that my tips are all food related. That seems about right.

  1. I do both of these things, these things work wonderfully! Cooking with Coconut oil was definitely the best decision I have made in a long while, though I must cite my new roomie here as she is the one who introduced me to the idea.

  2. You know, I’ve wanted to try the honey thing for a while now but was scared it didn’t actually work. I don’t have special New Zeland honey, but I’ve got locally grown (is that the right term?) honey which I guess is about the same and will have to work until I get the good stuff. I’m going to try this tonight! Thanks for the beauty tips! 🙂

      1. I’ve only done it three times and can tell a difference in my skin. All of the little bumps are gone and I think my pores are shrinking! Thanks again for sharing. I wish I would’ve taken before pics so I could compare in a week or so.

  3. You are SO right about the honey and the coconut oil. I have stopped using face wash and toner and have started using the oil cleanse method to wash my face . It is so much healthier. 🙂

  4. I also hear that brown sugar and olive oil(?) works too – same diff, but a little more exfoliation because of the sugar granuals and probably a little less expensive than honey, unless we pay more for our own honey in NZ than you do over there…. But yes, our manuka honey is very special.

  5. American English on the Internet says:

    Try honey plus yogurt. It works in very dry climate of New Mexico where anyone could easily turn into a dried frog.

  6. “Is she looking for a pot of gold?
    Will I look good when I’ve gotten old?
    Will our life become too stressful if I’m never that successful?
    Will I get so worn and wrinkly that I look like David Brinkley?”
