Use an onion to naturally accelerate the healing time of minor wounds!

If you're someone who likes the idea of Polysporin but doesn't want to use it for whatever reason, know that you can help accelerate the healing of minor wounds with the skin of an onion!

I came across this remedy thanks to my mom! I was staying with my parents during a family vacation and I had cut my finger with a knife (it was bleeding quite a bit but it wasn't deep enough to need stitches). I asked my mother if she had a band aid, and then she told me she would give me something better, onion skin! I told her that I didn't have time for her crazy talk. I didn't think she was making much sense until she kept insisting and got her way (as all mothers do lol) she gave me the onion skin, I put it on the wound then placed a band aid over it. Much to my surprise, by the end of the day (I had it on about 12 hrs) It had sealed up and almost completely healed! I was so weirded out by it since I thought it was ridiculous to begin with! I was pretty impressed and thought I would share :)

Btw, pretty sure I don't need to mention this, but it was a minor cut... I didn't need stitches, If you think you need stitches, do not substitute a doctor visit for onion skin...

What you'll need:

The Precision Blending Sponge!

                               
I just got this sponge when I was visiting my family down south and I used it for the first time a few days ago and really liked it! Technically I guess its like the little flat triangular sponges, except it fits better in your hand and the edge is stiffer when getting into creases so I felt like it was working better. I still apply my makeup on my fingers first, dab it onto my skin nicely, then finish off the spread by lightly blending with this sponge. I really liked it! I got mine at Sally...
