HACK FOR BREAKOUTS: USE TOOTHPASTE

Here is an insanely simple and cheap way to deal with breakouts...which also happens to be highly effective…and slightly odd, but hey, if you have spots, and toothpaste…combine the two to eliminate one. Why not.


A quote from a webpage noted: “Apply a small amount and leave overnight. In the morning, you should see a major improvement. The toothpaste dries up the acne and leaves you with smoother skin.”- clearly this is too for acne scars, but will work just as well for spots.

Here is a little illustration for your own amusement and reminder:

“DABBING THE AREA WITH TOOTHPASTE IS SAID TO BRING DOWN THE SWELLING. THIS MAY BE DUE TO THE INGREDIENTS IN THE TOOTH PASTE- LIKE BAKING SODA, HYDROGEN PEROXIDE, AND MENTHOL- THAT CAUSE PIMPLES TO DRY OUT.”

 

FUN FACT: did you also now that you can use toothpaste to clean jewellery, car headlamps, nails, (potentially) conceal phone scratches and to remove stains in clothes? Thought I’d just throw that in there! (You’re welcome, non-existent friend;) ).


 

I hope this minuscule blog is of some use…to someone…somewhere…somehow…*sobs in realisation of solitary nature of the world*.

So yeah…BYE!

Liebster awards|BLOG TEAM UP

liebster-award1

So about three and a quarter billion years ago (a month…literally 30 days) The Girl On The Bench nominated this swanky junior account to take part in ‘The Liebster Awards’. Sounds flash right? I cannot even physically say the damn word- and no, I haven’t tried.

But basically,  I answer 11 questions, no-one reads them, and I pass a different 11 onto the next person/s…finish my sentence. But besides the joking, this is a way to bring bloggers together, so DO IT OR DIE! (But wait, it’s my go first, back off)

  1. What song best describes your life right now?

*Frantically locates iphone and destroys itunes search bar*

Initial overly-dramatic answer: See You Again- Wiz Khalifa.

Now this is not just because this Wiz guy/girl has a crazy-mc-crazersten name, as myself (Sukhi Ruparelia). Don’t even try. It is because of the STUPID S-E-V-E-N week summer holidays, meaning I haven’t seen my fellow amigos’ in d e c a d e s. And the line “i’ll tell you all about it when I see you again” seems of extraordinary relevance at this delicate point in my ever so sore life.

I would give some type of mella dramatic d e e p answer to this but the itunes charts aren’t offering me that particular option right now. Damn you Apple.

2. What’s one memory that you wish you could relive?

tumblr_lxzetbl4nz1qcbsgdo1_500_largeThe past. Welcome to dramatic central. I don’t believe in looking back at mistakes and changes you could or would of made steps to avoid; what’s done is done and there is not a thing on this earth which can change that. Learn from the mistakes made at present, learn from them now, and let them fade. Don’t dwell. It’s not going to change a thing.

*end of unpredicted and quite frankly unnecessary counselling session*

3. Nandos level of spice?

I don’t get Nandos. I never get asked how much spiciness I should allow myself. How is a girl to know. Please send help. End of examination.

4. Three things that you love about yourself

tumblr_n64uue4CJw1slpi32o1_500(1) My friends and family (yes they are part of my life, they are part of me. Leave.), (2) my ability to surprise myself (I’ll leave that open to interpretation…), and (3) my shoes…they are also a part of me. A girl has got to have her shoes.

5. If you could live the life of one fictional character who would you be?

A fictional character…like um, one of the fictional ones. Maybe a character from Eastenders. Hell, they get paid alot. *Completely dodges point of question*

But seriously…probably, I don’t know. Help.

6. Where is your happy place?

tumblr_lgut2eohst1qft4fko1_500_large

With my family/ in my bed. The two are inseparable. One simply cannot outweigh the other- except for the bed aspect.

7. What is your favourite quote?

*Frantic Google search of “inspirational quotes” returning “About 92,100,000 results”- shut up, Google.*

“You’ve got what it takes, but it will take everything you’ve got.”

Just re-read that again.

No more to say. Inspiration sh*t works- curtsy of Google enterprise.

8. Winter or Summer?

tumblr_nr1c40SsWn1re3kvuo1_500Autumn. Yeah, I went there beach. It is just SO DAMN PRETTY! And does a shed load of good for my instagram posts. Follow me- self promo achieved. *Realises the World Wide Web is a large target, backs off*.

But a combo of the summer warmth with the winter setting and snow would be nice please.

9. One piece of advice you would give your younger self?

DON’T BE AFRAID TO BE YOUSELF YOU LITTLE IDIOT. PEOPLE JUDGE YOU FOR YOU, NO MATTER WHICH ‘YOU’ YOU ARE. DON’T AVOID THE INEVITABLE.

Calm. I am Calm.

10. If you could do one thing for the rest of your life with guaranteed success what would it be?

Be in love? No? Oh, okay. Next.

11. What makes you happy in 10 words?

SONY DSC

Achieving something utterly unexpected with the benefit of other people. (BOOOOOOSH.)

Six Pack Saturday|| Abs or Flabs?

Just to clarify, I am not some macho body builder with a 96 pack- neither can I advise you on how to be. This is either because I am the living equivalent of a doughnut or it is physically impossible to obtain a 96 pack of anything other than sausages.

So why am I, a highly skilled couch potato, writing a fitness post? I asked myself the same question. But I reckon I could have a jolly good go at it, so here it is- my guide of rambling nonsense about the ins (and outs) of abdominal fitness.

tumblr_mjt846h9F31rczg0co1_500

Upon one of my un-motivational Sunday-days, I decided I would get a six pack. So I took the treacherous journey up to my bedroom, and did some sit-ups. As you can imagine I was highly disappointed when I awoke the next morning to find the same tyre of a stomach I had 24 hours ago. So I formulated a routine; which consisted of:

  1. 50 ‘normal’ crunches (legs on the floor)
  2. 50 ‘perpendicular’ crunches (legs raised 90 degrees to your body)
  3. 50 leg raises
  4. 50 V-Up crunches
  5. 50 bicycle crunches
  6.  …a plank.

Now for a couch potato, this was torture. Doing 251 individual exercises before bed meant I often fell asleep whilst planking- a rather awkward and frankly uncomfortable position to spend the next 8 hours in.

The first plank of the routine lasted 1:00, by which 60 seconds felt more like 60 years and left me looking like a 50 year old with severe sunburn. Never the less, my headphones and I managed to battle through, increasing the duration by a whopping 10 seconds each day.

Today is the 2 month anniversary of the routine (

So there you have it! My daily ‘fitness’ routine (ft. a shed full of useless jibber jabber about couch potatoes and sausages). Once more I sincerely apologise for the general nonsense I have just spent the last 5 hours writing, I hope it provides some vague interest!

Thank you for reading,

NEWBIES!

As you can tell by the lack of ‘coolness’ and large blank pages, we are new to this!

Every teen has those crazy moments of “I’m going to start a YouTube account and become internet famous” or “I want to audition for X-Factor and meet Simon Cowell”…the difference between us and everyone else is that we are crazy enough to actually go and do it!

I feel it necessary to apologise in advance for just about every possible error that could ever be made when creating blogs like these; I can assure you I will make them all! (Well…isn’t this going well?=3)

Anyway, jumping away from the serious stuff… (^that was serious?!), funny story. Abbie came round earlier to help post our first blog. As you can tell, it didn’t happen, as 5 hours later I am still trying to write it!

We instead spent the first hour trying to change our profile picture, before realising we are on the wrong website. Then, the proceeding 30 minutes we spent adding links to all the wrong pages (which I still haven’t fixed- sorry to whoever now finds themselves attached to a page labelled “Plottwist'”, I’m sure you are mightily confused).

Following this we tried to write an ‘about’ page. Well…the clue is in the word “TRIED”.  Attempt 1 consisted of a disastrous essay about our names, which I decided were Ant and Dec (…don’t even). Attempt 2 came after an extensive web search- “how to write an about page when you are really rather basic and uninteresting”– which returned this:

GOOGLE

I would much rather eat a spoonful of ketchup than sift through 3,780,000 DAMN RESULTS. So we ended up spending 2 hours writing our ‘about’ page ourselves. It is 5 lines long. We spent 2 hours writing 5 lines. That is 24 minutes per line. Which is roughly 1:30 per word. (Pray for me writing this blog!)

In total we spent 4 hours and 30 minutes: changing a profile picture, adding all the wrong links and writing a 5 line ‘about’ page.

What a way to spend the entirety of a ‘relaxing’ Sunday afternoon! I’ll have to come up with some cover story at school like “I was in LA meeting Joey Graceffa” or something. At least that way I sound vaguely ‘normal’…

Thank you for reading my rant/ ramble/ welcome passage to Plottwist’ (which is actually Plot Twist, but the domain wouldn’t allow spaces, bummer…), please leave comment below (or wherever the comment box thing is!), advice would also be much appreciated!

Laters!
