If you have an angular face, you might want to de-emphasize the rough edges. Use a coral or creamy rose blush to soften a squarish face. Apply the blush with your fingers on the apples of the cheeks, then, using gentle, tugging motions, spread the color outward and upward towards your temples.

You can make your own mouthwash from peppermint oil and purified water. Just one small droplet of peppermint oil in an ounce of purified water is all you need.

Use honey in your beauty regimen. In addition to eating it, there are many ways that it can improve the look of your skin. Honey mixed with sugar is a good exfoliation technique for your skin.
