Your Grandmother’s Beauty Advice

Let OROGOLD look behind Granny’s advice and see which ones actually work! 


Oh, the good ol’ days, when we used to listen to Grandma babble on how her little secret medicines work, us usually thinking its just endless of some sort. No matter what happened, once grandmas weird ideas came to the picture, I would do anything but do whatever instructions came out of her mouth. I know it is kind of hard to believe but grandmothers have an answer to most of our troubles in their tiny kitchen or in other hiding spots in the house. Orogold would like to share some priceless tips passed on by grandmas from generation to generation. Until this day I never knew what baking soda is actually used for. Maybe it is because me and grandma go way back to the days where she forced me to brush my teeth with baking soda. Well, what can I say? It worked. Turns out baking soda can be used to clear your complexion, clean your teeth, and act as a natural antacid. Leaving no scratches on the tooth’s surface when it’s being polished. Now most important out of all is that it doesn’t leave bad breath, so tell “your friend” that has bad breath that baking soda prevents it from occurring. It gets even weirder when grandma uses Petroleum Jelly on her face. Yes, right on her face. I know that it is mostly used as an ingredient in lip balms, but that’s about it. My grandmother used to put it on every single night before getting into bed. I don’t suggest this for people with normal or normal to oily skin. This is more for the ladies with the dry skin out there. It is an oil-based moisturizer that resists water, which makes it a long-lasting lubricant to smooth and protect rough and dry skin. Petroleum jelly can also help in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Don’t think that if you put this all your wrinkles will disappear, No. It helps by making it less noticeable, which I think is better, because I don’t want to look all stretched out in the face. I want to look natural for my age, and  fish oil is another tip grandma had. Each day, she would take her “dose” of fish oil either via liquid or pill form. Fish oil holds large amounts of omega 3 essential fatty acids that are beneficial for cell repairs and preventing damage. When taking fish oil supplements daily, it helps reduce the risk of skin cancer, helps the body fight sunburn, and help lessen fine lines, wrinkles, and dry skin.

I will speak on behalf of myself here and say, that I am an American, and when taking the roll of being an American, you got to understand the love you have for vinegar. I am obsessed. Vinegar is my main dish to my sides. Now, our grandmas were so concerned, and wanted us not to lose the one thing we love the most, and so, they came up with another tip for beauty. Apple Cider Vinegar. The pH balance of the whole body and the skin is naturally balanced. Refining blood circulation and providing oxygen to the skin. While helping retain elasticity, it also tones, purifies and revives the skin. Who didn’t have acne in their life? Not once? Tell me, and I will kiss the floor you stepped on. We can use apple vinegar, the ones who weren’t that lucky, and had a “bit” of acne, you know like one here, and one there. It has a great positive effect on acne and itchy skin conditions, for example eczema or sunburn. They say that a couple tablespoons of this a night will help your oxygen flow and for the skin to lighten up. I say, drink the whole bottle and be done with it. No, not really. Just a joke. Grandmas are not only good with using homemade ingredients for beauty, but also have a way with words that we should keep. “Pretty is, as pretty does” and “Your only as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside” two great tips to follow. Thank you Grandma’s for enlightening us! What Beauty advice did your Grandma teach you? We would love to see what you got for us in stock.
