In order to make your teeth look whiter, use lipstick with cool, blue undertones. Lipsticks with warm, orange-based undertones accentuate the natural yellow color of your teeth, making them look yellower.

If you have ever caught yourself peeling off nail polish because it had begun to chip, it’s possible you have done damage to your nail. When the nail polish is peeled off like this, there is a chance you are taking off a layer of the nail plate. This can cause your nail to thin out or crack. Opt for an acetone-free nail polish remover instead.

Used coffee grounds are a great way to exfoliate for your hands. Once cooled, put the coffee grounds in a plastic bag, and keep them in the refrigerator.
