The Fairest Beauty Tips of Them All

One of the world’s most beloved fairy tales takes a hilarious turn in this fresh, exciting film starring Oscar® Winner Julia Roberts.  After she spends all her money, an evil enchantress queen (Roberts) schemes to marry a handsome, wealthy prince (The Social Network’s Armie Hammer). There’s just one problem – he’s in love with a beautiful princess, Snow White (Lily Collins, The Blind Side). So, the sinister queen banishes Snow White from her own kingdom! Now, joined by seven rebellious dwarves, Snow White launches an epic battle of good vs. snarky in this funny, magical movie that the whole family will love.
In Mirror Mirror, Queen Clementianna suffers from physical insecurity and takes it upon herself to conjure up different potions to erase the “crinkles” on her face.  In this feature, we will suggest different homemade beauty remedies that you can find in your own kitchen cabinet to treat yourself at the comfort of your own home, such as using grapes for those darn wrinkles, green tea for puffy eyes,  and a mayonnaise/ banana mix treatment for your hair. 

Reduce Those Evil Wrinkles

The queen hated her “crinkles” so she turned to home remedies to help minimize them. We suggest cutting seedless grapes, then crushing them to apply to face and neck. Repeat daily. The antioxidant properties of the grapes remove pesky ‘crinkles!’
 Snow White Eyes
Green tea contains antioxidants and placing a damp green tea under each eye can sooth tired eyes and reduce bags and dark circles. Adding cucumber slices or grated potatoes over closed eyes will also reduce puffy-looking skin. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and poof, magically, clear and whiter eyes!
 Whiter Teeth
For a quick and easy way to brighten your smile, mash a few strawberries in a bowl and add ½ teaspoon of baking soda. Coat teeth with the mix and leave for five minutes. The malic acid acts as an astringent and removes stains. Be wise not too use too often (an evil queen trait) because regular use could damage your tooth enamel. Brush again with normal toothpaste to remove the mix. Happy smiles!

Shiny Hair
To get Snow White’s shiny and smooth hair, condition your hair by heating a ½ cup of mayonnaise and a mushed banana in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Apply to dry hair and cover with a plastic bag. Leave the mixture on your hair for 20 minutes. Remove the plastic bag and rinse your hair with warm water then shampoo as normal.

Skimmed milk powder makes a great face wash as it gently exfoliates your skin and leaves it soft. This is suitable for all skin types and is likely Snow White’s favorite cleansing method!
