Got an emergency and need a quick fix? Super Chelsea to the rescue! (:

For acne emergencies, use one of the following fixes:

♥ Apply an ice cube
♥ Eye redness reliever
♥ Hydrocortisone
♥ Hemorrhoid cream (sounds gross, but works great)
♥ Calamine lotion
♥ 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Apply then let dry.

For shaving nicks:

♥ Moisten a dry tea bag with cold water and place it on the cut to stop the bleeding.

For insect bites:

♥ Mix 1 part meat tenderizer to 4 parts water and apply to bite.

For sunburn:

♥ Chill a spray bottle of vinegar in the fridge, then spray on.
♥ Rub a peeled cucumber on it.
♥ Pop an ibuprofen on it.
♥ Rub aloe vera on it.

For red nose:

♥ Apply eye drops with a cotton swab.

For puffy eyes:

♥ Run spoons under cold water then place them under your eyes. Gently massage the rounded part of the spoon over your eye.

For dark circles:

♥ Apply sliced potatoes while lying down for 5 minutes.
♥ Rub the contents of a vitamin K capsule over it.

For chapped lips:

♥ Run tape against lips to peel off dead skin.

For greasy hair:

♥ Blot hair with a baby wipe, followed by a tissue that's been pulled apart.

For frizzy hair:

♥ Mix equal amounts of conditioner and gel in your palms and run over your hair.
♥ Put moisturizer over the top layer of your hair.

So the next time you're in a hurry and need a quick fix, just remember these tips, and you'll be out the door in no time!
