Thanks for starting this thread Nene. Here's a tip

If you want to lighten your hair instead of using sun-in (can turn your hair orangey) use lemon juice. It really works!

 Grin Great idea for a thread in gilmore-land!
Whats sun-in, though? I tried the lemon juice and that works great, especially if you let your hair dry in the sun afterwards.

Phewww.... I thought it would get closed again by mods. Here's mine:
Skin:
Forget expensive lotion! Just use Petroleum Jelly. Trust me. It works!
Don't use alot of makeup. I just like powder and Lipgloss.
Good exfoliant: sugar and olive oil. Oil moisturizes and sugar exfoliates

Hair:
Coconut oil!!! The best for hair. Leave overnight and shower in the morning.
Ok. hope they help!

i use petroleum jelly too it works wonders but a tittle on your eyelashes at night and they'll look really healthy in the morning, just dont get it in your eyes!
and if you have a shimmer powder mix a little in the the petroleum jelly and smooth it on not only does it give your skin a shimmery healthy looking shine it doesnt rub off on your clothes (and other people) as easily.

hope that helps

I've always wanted to get my naturally blond hair a little blonder, but I've always been afraid too.  Tell me exactly how to use lemon juice, do you wash it in your hair?  How much?  Does RealLemon work?  Are you supposed to go out in the sun after?

About the lemon-in-hair technique, I used to slice a lemon into thin crescents and rub that on my hair, on the top and on the sides, and I'd go outside all day not worrying about it.  I have a friend who just takes RealLemon and puts it in coton balls and rubs that on her hair, and it worked just fine.

My beauty tips:

Brush your hair everyday, and do not wash it everyday unless you do sports everyday.

The only thing I use on my face (I am turning seventeen this summer) that has worked wonderfully for me (I have nice skin luckily) is Dove 1/4 moisturizing bar of soap.  I wash my face with it twice a day, and then I apply a moisturizer, either Nivea Soft or Aveno (those work best for me).

Brush your teeth at least twice a day; a beautiful smile is always dazzling.

Before taking a bath, take a quick and harsh shower.  What I mean is to scrub yourself really really hard under the shower.  Who wants to spend hours in a beautiful smelling bath with all their dirt seeping through their skin in their seemingly clean water?

Avoid applying eyeliner on the lower inside of your eye as a rash straight line.  Try to make it softer.

When applying mascara, usually applying two coats is sufficient, and make sure you apply the second coat when the first is still wet, otherwise you end up with bristly lashes.  Not good.

Go easy on the shimmer: you don't want to look like a frosted cake.  For everyday makeup, either shimmer on your eyes or shimmer on your lips will do.  Both will look like too much for everyday. 

Use a bronzer to give you a healthy glow.  Suck in your cheeks and apply it to the part that sticks out the most, to your forehead lightly, the bridge of your nose, and your chin lightly as well.

DON'T OVERTWEEZE your eyebrows!  They can take a while to grow back in, and sometimes they don't.  They're meant to frame your eyes, take care of them! If this is your first time, either get your mum or a salon esthetician to do it.  It's honestly a good investment for your first time.  Then, you can just keep following their shape. TELL THEM YOU WANT IT TO LOOK NATURAL, or you might come out looking like them (they have ugly pencil thin eyebrows often).

Drink a LOT of water.  Pretty girls ALWAYS drink a lot of water.  It hydrates your skin and keeps it elastic.

Eat a lot of vegetables and fruits: they give you a natural glow.

If using liquid foundation: Try mixing moisturizer with foundation, about two parts foundation to one part moisturizer.  Mix it on her your palm or on your face and gently spread evenly.  It looks sheerer and more natural.

When waxing, always have oil with you to remove whatever wax remains on your skin.

Nene's body scrum is amazing: olive oil and sugar.  I prefer using soap afterwards, just once, because I don't like the oily feeling after it.  If you use soap (Dove for me again!) afterwards, you just feel silky!

I have TONS more tips, but I have to go for now. Try them, and share yours! Later!

I love my hair! My shampoo is Palmolive. The smell is just so refreshing.
When waxing: use baby powder before.
For shampoo. find them in the Filipino marts. Try Creamsilk or Sunsilk
Don't shave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT hurts and plus it doesn't even take it all out.
Yup.. alot of water is good for everything for a growing girl.
DOn't pick pimples. I'll make them worse and can get infected.
Working out is also good for the skin.
Hope it helps!

I have some semi-weird "beauty" tips.  For pimples, especially the really big, nasty ones you always wake up with on school picture day, the day of the prom, the day of a big date with that special someone, etc use a white minty toothpaste.  It helps get rid of them, I don't know why.  Also, that hand sanitizer stuff is really good for oily skin if your out and about-it's good in the summer when your all sweaty and dirty and pores get clogged.  Clean and Clear oil free foaming face wash (it comes in an orangy red color and a yellowy clear color) makes good shampoo, especially if your hair gets really oily.  Pantene hair conditioner makes good body wash and leaves your skin really soft.  If you mix your favorite flavor Pixie Stix in Vaseline it makes good tasting lip gloss.  Neosporin(sp) gets rid of stretch marks.  Benzoyl Peroxide (Clean and Clear makes a great one) clears your skin up over night.  Here's one for the mothers out there-mayo gets rid of lice, just keep it out of the hot sun.  And finally, this isn't really a beauty tip, but if you have a really tough calcium buildup in your bathroom (i.e. toilets, sinks, bathtubs) a pumace stone will scratch it right off without etching the tub.  The end.

Ah, somewhere that I can ask my 2 questions.

How does one reduce "baggy eyes"?

Also, does putting cucumbers over your eyes actually do anything? I heard from a TV show it reduced "baggy eyes." =P

I don't know if the modteam will wanna close it, but here's my tip.

Using baby oil to remove eye make-up. I do that anyways, cause my mom taught me that. Skin around your eyes is thin and when you use a lot of make up (by the way DON'T) you will get wrinkles sooner cause you have to remove it at night usually by rubbing on that fragile skin. So put a little baby oil (which is made for thin fragile skin and non chemical so wont create irritation) on a cotton bulb and leave it on your eyes for a couple of minutes to seep into the skin and soften the make-up. Instead of getting it of your face 'with force' cause again it will create wrinkles. Then move it slowly downwards and to the side of your eyes. In my case all my make up is removed and well most girls my age are already having pre-wrinkles when they laugh....people still tell me I look 18 years old. Seriously 17 year old boys are asking me out and getting shocked when I tell them: 'don't ya think I'm a little out of your age range....No I'm 24 years old'. So I guess it works. Okay now to gets something to stop those hormone boys from asking me out....oohh well always good for a good laugh.

About baggy eyes:  I only know that a good night sleep will prefend it. And well if ya have it then cover stick...one tone lighter then your skincollor NOT TO OBVIOUSLY put on but a little will reduce the baggyness.

Thats funny because Im always told that I look a lot younger than I actually am, too.
Im 26 but I guess I can easily pass for 18. A little while ago I was still always aked for my ID when going out. Smiley I found it embarrassing first but now I got used to it.

Anyway I always think that the best tips to stay looking young is to get enough sleep (because that beauty-sleep-thingy isnt just a phrase) and to not smoke. Seriously, a lot of my friends smoke and they all look some years older than they really are. And if one can see that in the mid-twenties already, how bad will it be when one is... in the mid-thirties for example.
And yeah, the generall things that have beeen said already: work out, live and eat healthy, drink a lot,... all of this is really true. Allthough Im not really doing all of that myself. *sigh* I can be so lazy sometimes. Wink

Edit: So, WO edited the sleep thing into her post while I was writing this. But it is is  true and therefore one can say it two times.  Wink
