Revamp those old binders!

Do you want to turn your old binders from bad to fab?
Here's what you will need;
- A binder
- Duct tape of your favorite pattern
 - A picture that you like (I would suggest using one that on regular paper so that it doesn't pucker).

First cover the binder with the duct tape going directly from one end of the binder to another, horizontally. Then place your picture wherever you like.Thirdly take a different color of duct tape and put it on all four corners of the photo. If you want a label so you know what subject the notebook is for, simply take a short strip of the duct tape and place it on the spine of the binder and write on it with a sharpie. It's very simple but it adds a sense of personalization. I hope you try this, enjoy your binders!

Beautiful Skin for all skin types

Is you skin dry, flaky, or peeling? To oily? Over sized pores? Skin is commonly the first thing people notice about each other. Make a good first impression with the lavish skin you always dreamed about without the expense. Here are the solutions to your skin dilemmas.

Dry-Flaky Skin

They make body washes infused with aloe and additional moisturizes such as the line of moisturizing body washes  by Sauve (available at Walmart), they not only improve skin quality but smell great also. My absolute favorite product for when i get dry skin is the After Sun Moisturizer by True Blue Spa. The After Sun Moisturizer is amazing because it can be used on all parts of your body so you don't need to buy a separate facial creme. It leaves my skin so soft without feeling heavy and it smells amazing. I use a dab of it on my face nearly every day, it absorbs in just a few minutes and it leaves my face feeling soft and smooth, plus oil free! You can find it at Bath and Body Works.

Oily Skin

Oily skin feels heavy, and its sticky or 'wet' to the touch. Don't let greasy skin drag you down! All you need to do is wash your face with the Pink Grapefruit facial wash by Neutrogena. Whats better than waking up and washing your face before school or work letting the scent ripen your mood. It smells great and it will take away that greasy overly shiny appearance that you may get. It gets into pores to take away all of the grease and grime within skin. If skin begins to become slightly dry try applying  the moisturizer stated in the prior paragraph.

 Large Pores
I have heard that rose water reduces the appearance of pores but i have yet to try it. I would just recommend using hot water to wash your face in, heat enlarges the pores, and removing the facial cleanser with cold water. It truly does work I tried this last night and it does work. Your will reduce in size if you do this frequently
