A Sweet Treat Never Hurt Anybody. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: A Sweet Treat Never Hurt Anybody.

In most cases that is true, with generally healthy individuals, a little sweet treat doesn’t hurt with digestion. But if you have a yeast infection eating sweets can hurt more, than you think.

Yeast can effect women and men, internally and externally. And, yeast thrives on sugar. So, if you have a yeast infection, be sure not to give into that craving of sugar, that also includes fruits. Fruits have a high natural sugar content that can feed the yeast.

So, if you think you have a yeast infection, seek medical treatment and drink plenty of water, and save the desert for another time.

Hair Dryer Smells Burnt, Clean It Out Easy. Tips in Action:

By Tia Cristy

Tips in Action: Hair Dryer Smells Burnt, Clean It Out Easy.

If the hair dryer is smelling like it’s burning every time you turn it on, it’s time to clean it out. Dust and lint get trapped in the back screen. Cleaning it out can prevent the dryer from catching fire or burning out the fan and motor.

Remove the back screen and use a clean dry cotton swab in between the blades. Flip the swab to the clean side, and dust the screen off as well.

Put the dryer back together and it should run as good as new.

Tricks for Sunless Tanning.

By Tia Cristy

Tricks for Sunless Tanning.

Problem: Hi Tia. It’s time for the pool to open, and I don’t want to look pale in my suit. Do you have any tips or tricks when it comes to self tanning?

Answer: Good question, and really, it’s a great alternative to tanning in the sun.

Sun is important for Vitamin D, but the rays can be harmful with too much indulgence. Sunless tanning can be natural with the right product, and only you, can determine which product and color is right for you. Trial and error may be what you have to do to find the right one; there are sprays, airbrushes, lotions and wipes to choose from.

Do a sunless tanner the day before you need a tan. It’s easy to correct any mistakes or darken your color if needed. Jumping in water after applying sunless tan, will just leave you a streaky mess and it’s not good for the pool water either. So plan accordingly.

First tip, use a separate face tanner, on the face, unless the tanning product says, full body. Body tanners can slightly dye hair, and darkening facial hair is not a goal for most.

The next tips would be, don’t shave legs before applying tanner, if possible. Exfoliating your legs and body before tanning is a good way to get a longer lasting tan. Shaving before hand can cause razor burn or darken pores. Shaving is best, after tan color has been achieved.

Remember, tanning can dye clothes, so be sure to wear dark colors while waiting for color to take. Wash hands well when finished, when using a lotion or wipe. Do forget to get around jewelry, if wearing it. Color can tend to build up behind rings.

If hands have turned color or you have any darker patches, use peroxided on a cotton ball (wring out, so no drips or runs happen) and wipe the area. It will fade the color to blend within a few hours.

Need Ice for a Party. Quickies:

Quickies: Need Ice for a Party.

A lot of parties are coming up this month and next, for graduations, holidays or just welcoming the barbecue season. The thing most party throwers overlook until party day, is ice. Buying bags of ice isn’t too expensive, but it’s an expense you don’t need, with a little forethought.

Whether you fill ice trays and empty them in the bag or you an ice maker; filling up old shopping bags with ice and storing them in the freezer for “party cooler” use, is a great money saver.

Ice for drinks, should be stored in clean or sanitized bags, until they can be placed in ice buckets for the party day.

Deodorant Not Working. Tips in Action:

Tips in Action: Deodorant Not Working.

Deodorant not working? Don’t go clinical strength, if you don’t have too. Sweat is a good thing; sweat releases toxins and other things you don’t want in the body. You may smell, but a good cleaning, should wash is away. If it doesn’t, clinical strength deodorant, isn’t going to change that, you got to change from the inside out. Stink means, fungus and/or bacteria.

To Get rid of both fungus and bacteria, vinegar will kill both.

Get gauze and soak it with vinegar and apply to armpits for 5-10 minutes. The armpit will absorb the vinegar. This will reset the balance in your armpits.

Remove Strong Glue from Skin

Remove Strong Glue from Skin

Problem: I was doing handy man stuff. I was working with contact cement and the glue won’t wash off my hands, I’m out of paint thinner. Any solutions?


Tip from Tia:
Rubbing alcohol works alright, if that’s all you have. But, the best solution I can tell you is, Acetone. It is along the same lines as “paint thinner”, it is actually a paint remover, found in nail polish remover.

Pour some nail polish remover into the palm of your hand and rub the glue off. Be sure to wash hands thoroughly, after use. Repeat if necessary. Like paint thinner, the smell is strong but, it will dissipate.

Quickie: Keep Lip Color on Longer, While Moisturizing and Protecting.

There are so many products on the market now to make lip color last. But, what are the ingredients? It may leave your lips feeling sticky or doesn’t have protection properties in your shade.

The old school way to keep your lips protected and lush is putting your foundation on your lips as well as the rest of your face. Foundations have moisturizers, SPF, are well tested for years; being hypo-allergenic and are not sticky. Another bonus is, you will get a true shade of color, without the lips natural tint, altering the color.

Let the foundation set for a couple minutes, then add on your favorite shade of lip liner and/or lipstick. It won’t last all day, but it will set naturally and last longer than plain lipstick alone.
