It may be the excitement of the weekend finally arriving, or Friday mornings are just everyone’s happy day, either way, Happy Friday! If you’ve got big plans this weekend and need tips and tricks to get ready efficiently, then you’ve come to the right blog post.

Beauty Hack #1: The Banana Peel

Bananas are not only healthy to eat; they also provide us with Vitamin B6 and contain 10% of our daily fiber requirements. However, they also make for excellent skincare products. Hold off on purchasing a new face mask and try this at home remedy instead.

Take the inside of a ripe organic banana peel and rub it on your acne scar until the peel turns a brownish color. This will help lighten any acne scar you may have. Remember to repeat about three times a day.

If you take a banana peel, mix it with egg yolk, it will give you an anti-aging face mask. Apply this face mask for 10 minutes and rinse off with water. If you continue to use this face mask remedy, you will be begin to see results in wiping out wrinkles and be left with a smooth feeling on your face.

Other banana peel tricks can be found on the JCI Pinterest.

Beauty Hack #2: Thin Mascara Trick

Tired of having clumps of mascara on your eyelashes? If you take your mascara tube and sink it into a glass or bowl of hot water, it allows the formula to become thinner. This trick helps prevent clumps and also makes it much easier to apply false lashes on.

Beauty Hack #3: Underarm Whitening

Natural solutions are always easy, quicker and affordable. To get rid of dark underarms, mix baking soda with lemon juice and apply this mask-like product on your underarms. When applied before going to sleep, not only will you see results the next morning, but it will also help with odor removal. Try this trick once a week: use after showering and massage the products on to your underarms.

Beauty Hack #4: Perfect a Cat Eye with a Spoon

Winged eyes are difficult to perfect and they take a lot of time and patience for some of us. By lifting the handle of a spoon and lining it upward from your lash line helps create the base for your angled line. Use the curves of the spoon to shape out the line how you prefer. Once the shape is correct, fill it in to get the cat eye look.
