Have you ever heard of putting toothpaste on pimples to relieve swollen and red pimples?! Well, if not, let me tell you about this little trick.
    Does it matter what toothpaste you use? YES, "toothpaste usually contains alcohol--which dries the pimple--and contains drying components like chalk. If you have very dry skin, do not use a toothpaste with a lot of alcohol. Toothpaste's drying components collect moisture and oil from the skin, drawing it out of the pimple." (ehow.com) Also, gel toothpastes don't hold up as well as regular toothpaste because it doesn't dry out enough like the regular toothpaste does to help get rid of redness/swelling as well as it doesn't absorb much moisture from pimples.
    So this quick inexpensive fix is good to try and see how it works with your skin. Just test it on on a small area before covering your whole face (if it's needed). Also try peppermint toothpaste for a cooling sensation for irritated areas!   
    Do you notice if you go one day without washing your hair it starts to look greasy so quickly?! Here's a tip to help on those days your running late or just don't have time to wash and style your hair!
    Take a BIG fluffy makeup brush and dip it into a pot of loose powder (or baby powder). Tap it on the back of your hand to get off excess powder and then dust it over your greasy roots and wait a minute. then just blend it into your hair.
    The powder will absorb the oil that makes your hair greasy! Just don't use this method all the time shampooing and conditioning is needed in between, lol  :-P
