Bleach Your Skin

Bleaching your skin is one of the quickest and easiest ways to whiten skin. Bleaching the skin has very little to no side effects and it can give effective results every time.

Some common side-effects of bleaching are irritation, redness, and a stinging sensation on the skin but they go away after a while. If the irritation is consistent, take off the cream and rub an ice-cube.

Always do a patch test before bleaching. Apply the bleach cream to a square inch section of skin on the back of your hand and take it off. Wait 12-24 hours. If no signs of irritation occur, use it on the face.

Squat Thrust

Start by standing, then send your hips back and down in a deep squat position with your chest raised, your hands on the floor between your legs, and the buttocks lower than your knees. Transfer the weight to your hands and then jump your feet back to reach the raised plank position. Quickly jump from toe to hand to return to a deep squat position with your chest up. Extend your legs to stand up. Keep repeating as soon as possible.

Use Body Language

When you are hugging a close friend, you are comfortable and know that your friend would be happy to hug you. But, when you are hugging someone you don’t know well or someone you have not hugged before, give them signs that you are trying to hug them.

When you are approaching them, open up your arms, if they do the same, hug them. If they shake your hand and then move away, respect their boundaries, and don’t try to hug them. If they ignore you and don’t hug, they might not have noticed that you wanted to hug them, stay graceful and polite in either situation.

Get yourself some mangoes

Got a short break? Grab the yellow tropical fruit and indulge in some juicy goodness!

Mangoes contain linalool, the main ingredient found in lavender oil. Can you think of how lavender makes you feel? Serene! Right? It may even reduce your stress and anxiety.

Double cleanse

If you wear makeup, it might be a good idea to look into double cleansing.

Many face washes don't get all the grease and dirt off of your face in one go. If you're wearing makeup, they may be only removing the makeup and none of the acne-causing oils and free radicals that cause acne.

Double cleansing involves first washing your face with an oil-based cleanser. It may not sound like a good idea to be putting more oil on your face, but oil dissolves oil, and when followed up with a decent cleanser, it can rid you of stubborn gunk and sebaceous filaments. Just ensure that you're only double cleansing prior to wearing makeup and using a cleanser strong enough to wash away all that oil.

Chilled Soup

When you’re sweating out under a fan at the office, a hot bowl of soup hardly sounds pleasant. Instead, try the new culinary concept that has stormed the internet with a gazillion recipes – the chilled soup!

Ideally, try to choose soups containing fruits and veggies with high water content, and avoid adding a lot of salt.

Boric Acid

If you're looking for a DIY solution to your cockroach problem, boric acid is going to be your best bet. Mix boric acid with flour in equal parts to create a dough. Roll it into several balls that you can place in the areas that the cockroaches are in most frequently. The cockroaches will eat the dough and the acid will kill them. However, this solution is NOT PET-SAFE! Boric acid can be toxic to pets, so please keep that in mind.
