Alright, when I saw this article on BHG, I knew I had to share!
I’ll admit, I’ve heard of a few but some were completely shocking. But hey! If they work, who’s to complain…
so let’s get started…
The Tip: Put Toothpaste on a Pimple
The claim: The ingredients in your toothpaste such as baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and alcohol will dry up a zit — fast.
The Tip: Wash Your Face with Beer
The claim: It’s said to exfoliate dead skin cells and reduce acne-causing bacteria.
The Tip: Depuff Eyes with Preparation-H
The claim: The same active ingredient that shrinks your hemorrhoids can shrink your under eye bags.
The Tip: Give Yourself a Facial With Pepto Bismol
The claim: The chalky pink stomach remedy is said to clear acne when worn as a facial mask.
The Tip: Wash Your Hair with Coca-Cola
The claim: This tip went mainstream after model Suki Waterhouse admitted to swapping out her shampoo for the sugary soda. She says rinsing with the bubbling beverage gives her hair body and tousled texture.
The Tip: Add Aspirin to Your Shampoo
The claim: The headache remedy, all crushed up, can dissolve away flaky dead skin cells.

Clients usually see results in a few months.” A few months is a small price to pay for getting your brows back!
I can vouch for the magic behind castor oil. Get this: growing up, every night before going to sleep, my dad would apply castor oil to our eye lashes (by “our” I mean me & my 2 sisters).
