  7. my secret beauty tip is to use a sleeping mask as it's water based and very gentle to leave on your face overnight without the sticky feeling - hydration is the key - i sometimes use it in place of a real cream after washing my face and my skin is still very clear

  15. My secret beauty tip is to make a paste from Turmeric powder by adding a few drops of water and lemon juice and applying it to your face.I usually leave it on for about 15min. You'd just wash it off afterwards. I find that it helps with oil control and it gives me a brighter complexion! cheers!
