In Your Face: Annamarie Tendler Tests At-Home Beauty Remedies

There are a lot of home beauty tricks and remedies out there, but how do you know which ones are worth trying and which are a big ol’ waste-o-time? (That’s a cool expression, right?) Don’t worry my friends, I have tested some out for you, in hopes of saving you energy and personal disaster. So, you’re welcome.

I have to admit, I’m skeptical about home remedies. It’s not that I think they don’t work. A lot do. For example, when my mom was a teen she used to put mayo in her hair overnight to condition it. You should see some old photos of her—real nice hair. Realistically, I just don’t think I’m gonna whip up an avocado callus softener when I can whip up some guacamole instead and just buy the avocado callus softener. Also, I don’t cover anything about avocado callus softeners in this video.

I do cover the best way to de-puff eyes, whether baby powder works as dry shampoo, and how to make a face mask that you can theoretically eat for breakfast. All easy to do in the amount of time it takes to whip up a bowl of guacamole!

It’s serious journalism, don’t watch it if you can’t handle it. But also, just watch it.
