All my makeup addicts out there and my beauty gurus, too, could you please raise your hand?? Aight, I see you! This one is for you. I made this because I care about my time and I care about my money and I want to pass down those words of wisdom to all my makeupholics and beauty hack rebels in the house! And if you’re a wise one, you better go ahead and scroll down!

1. Don’t give up on your broken powder based products

How many times did you break your brand new face bronzer, highlighter, powder, eyeshadow?…should I go on? And how many times were you left sobbing after they ended up literally exploding in your handbag and you were left with pigment covered bag contents in the shade of Moonlight? Well, not on my watch! All you need is a bottle of rubbing alcohol that you could buy from your nearest pharmacy. Rubbing alcohol is a clear and inexpensive liquid, as well. After that all you need to do is get a spoon or even better, a dropper. Add a decent amount to either of them and then just pour it into your powdery mess and let the alcohol sink. Then, let your product sit for approximately 10-15 minutes. You can smooth your product out with a knife mid-dry phase. Yep, that’s it. You’re done.

2. Chapped lips? no problem

Run to the kitchen, now! What you’ll need: a clean container, honey, olive oil and sugar. Mix all your ingredients together and congratulations! Look what you’ve created you miracle child you! You now have a perfect, natural scrub at hand any time you need it. Just dab your finger into the mixture and then rub that magic onto your lips for instantly smooth like a baby’s tooshie lips! Just don’t forget to moisturize your lips afterwards, that’s a must!

3. Don’t cry if you don’t have the ingredients in no. 2

Okay, so you’re some kind of hooligan who doesn’t have sugar and honey at home, fine by me! You could still exfoliate your lips using your toothbrush while brushing your teeth. Here’s how it goes; you go for your normal brushing routine, alright? You place a swirl of that Signal goodness onto your toothbrush and then you add a little water before you start brushing your teeth. While at it, brush your lips, too. Don’t go too hard though or else you’ll cut your lip. That’s literally it yeah.

4. Say goodbye to after shaving bumps!

So, your arms and legs are tired of all that last minute shaving that you end up doing more often than you’d like. That’s alright, not entirely, but at least for now, here’s what you can do to get rid of that skin irritation. Go make black tea! Yep! You heard it, go fix yourself a cup of black tea and add some vinegar to it. Afterwards, take that teabag out and rub it onto the irritated area. You’re welcome, sister.

5. Now you have a dry ass mascara and no cash to buy yourself a new one

This one’s incredibly easy, especially for those who wear contact lenses. Simply, just add some lens solution to your mascara tube then shake it really well and you’re all set, sugar!

6. Farewell to rusty silver rings/jewellery 

Coca Cola was created for a much greater purpose than drinking, it was created for silverware cleaning! Don’t believe me? try it! All you need is a glass container (preferably) and a bottle of coke. Pour a generous amount of the drink into the container and then place your rusty silver ring in it. Leave it in there for an hour and voila! Your ring is shinier than it’s ever been!

7. Numb the pain away

Does tweezing your eyebrows piss you off as hell because of all the times you accidentally pick your skin instead?! Well, child, I feel ya! Now forget all that irritation because I have the solution for you: ICE CUBES ALL THE WAY! Just gently rub an ice cube on the area you’re about to use your tweezers on and experience the beautiful numbness that follows. Tweeze away your troubles and never pick your little hairs before numbing the area with an ice cube first! Makes all the difference.

8. Get celebrity like flawless looking legs NOW

Yes yes, I used to go nuts for those Kate Beckinsale legs, too! I mean, look at how smooth they are! There are great airbrush products out there that actually achieve that same result, like Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs, but they’re all PRETTY pricy! I got my last one for 500 L.E. and I’ve been crying since! But you don’t have to go through the same mistakes I’ve made because now you can make your own leg foundation at home and it’s a piece of cake! All you need is a container, body lotion and concealer/foundation. I swear to God, that IS IT. Mix the two together and then smooth the mixture onto those legs of yours, let dry for twenty minutes before you put on your clothes! Enjoy!

9. Stop buying makeup removers

Instead of wasting your money on expensive makeup removing products, invest in a bottle of good ol’ coconut oil. First off, coconut oil wipes off all your makeup with a swipe no matter how heavy your makeup is, second, coconut oil doesn’t irritate your skin or cause redness while removing your makeup, third, coconut oil will leave your skin moisturized so, you won’t have to use a face cream afterwards unlike other makeup removing products.

10. Dry your nails faster

Do you seriously have to run but you’re afraid of ruining your oh so precious freshly painted nails? no worries. Just dip your nails into a bowl filled with cold water (Yes, like cold cold) and leave them in for a while. They’ll dry way faster this way!

Capiche?? You got this!

Health Authorities in the Kingdom Set to Participate in Trials of Covid-19 Vaccines

Published

By

King Abdullah International Medical Research Center (KAIMRC) is set to participate in advanced trials of a couple of vaccines for COVID-19. 

Around 40 vaccines are showing potential and are currently being tested on humans. Nine of these vaccines are at an advanced stage, whereas their effectiveness are being evaluated.

The center is ready to work along with with the Kingdom’s Ministry of Health and the Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) and take part in the tests of one or two of the nine vaccines that are currently in the third phase of clinical trials.

Dr. Naif Al-Harbi, the head of KAIMRC’s drug-development unit, told Al-Ekhbariya TV news channel that they expect to have hold of nine vaccines, all of which are in the third stage of clinical trials.

“Approval or disapproval of any drug normally follows the third stage of its clinical trials, which is the last stage,” he added. “Since the pandemic, KAIMRC has been in continuous contact with a number of drug companies in four countries (that are developing vaccines).” Al-Harbi said.

“We examine the drugs and make sure they have caused no side effects when tested on humans, or that they just caused insignificant side effects,” said Al-Harbi. “We also look into the manufacturing company’s profile to ensure it follows the standards of the good manufacturing practices, and that the company’s products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards.”

We’re wishing for the best and for a vaccine to be developed, so our lives can go back to normal.

The Kingdom has launched a number of clinics that they have named ‘Tataman’ for patients who are having coronavirus symptoms but are not yet diagnosed with the virus.

These new facilities, identified in English as “Fever Clinics” in a Ministry of Health tweet, will operate 24/7.

“In the interest of the health of all those on the land of our dear homeland, we launched today “tataman” [reassurance] clinics that are dedicated to people who experience symptoms of coronavirus, such as high fever, and will expand during the next two days,” Saudi Health Minister Tawfiq Al-Rabiah said in the tweet.

The clinics have started operations in six cities in Saudi Arabia, and the ministry said that it’s planning on expanding the clinics’ branches across the rest of the Kingdom’s provinces later on.

So far, the 31 clinics are currently open in the cities of Riyadh, Al-Ahsa, Qassim, Jeddah, Makkah and Madinah.

The announcement of the clinics came after health officials reported 3,121 new cases of coronavirus in the Kingdom detected in only the past 24 hours, while 1,175 new cases of recovery were recorded.

Electronic Wristbands Introduced to Monitor Self-Isolated Saudis At Home

Published

With the increase in coronavirus cases, some patients are forced to self isolate themselves at home and such a need calls for measures to be taken from the Kingdom.

And that’s what the Kingdom is trying to do!

Saudi Arabia has announced this week the introduction of electronic wristband trackers to monitor those who are being quarantined at homes.

According to the spokesperson for Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health, Dr. Mohammed Al-Abd Al-Aly, these bracelets are being introduced “not just to monitor and follow up on infected individuals, but to provide further services to reassure citizens and residents.”

This comes in light of the Kingdom’s efforts in making home quarantine as safe as in hospitals and instead of patients or possible carriers having to isolate in quarantine facilities.

According to reports by local media, the government is also planning to issue electronic warning regarding coronavirus through the “Tawakkalna” app, which was launched earlier this month to facilitate the issuance of movement permits.

The app, which was developed by the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA), provides residents with the latest warnings and medical news issued by the Ministry of Health.

Across the world, countries are taking all the measures and exerting efforts to limit the spread of this novel virus, with more and more applications being introduced everyday to help deliver people with everything they need without them having to leave the safety of their homes.
