The Kardashian’s Beauty Tip? Putting Mayo on Their Lady Bits!

The Kardashians appeared on ‘Conan’ Thursday night to discuss their love lives, new book and a very curious grooming tip: shining the vagina with mayonnaise.

Inspired by a discussion of their Twitter accounts, Kourtney relayed their unique tip to fans:

“I told Khloe that I found her sex mask under my bed, that she’s been looking for, and then she wrote me back, ‘Oh my god, I found your jar of mayonnaise that you use on your vagina,’” she told host Conan O’Brien. “And we were talking back and forth and people were like, what does mayonnaise on your vagina do? And we said it makes it shine like the top of the Chrysler Building.”

Sister Kim, perhaps the most reserved of the sisters, was not pleased with the exchange. “Don’t you guys realize that most of our fans are under the age 18 and you are bad influences on them? Talking about putting mayonnaise on your thing is not appropriate,” she scolded her sisters.

Khloe’s response? “Follow at your own risk.”

While Kim clarified that the girls didn’t actually use mayo on their genitals – though Khloe teased, “how do you know?” – they did discuss other personal matters, like proposed endorsement deals for customized sex toys for Khloe and husband Lamar Odom, and butt enhancement pills for Kim.

DISGUSTING!

Foods that make you beautiful!

We spend so long coating ourselves in serums, lotions and potions we sometimes forget that what we put inside our bodies can have an effect on our looks too.

In fact, what we eat can be more important in keeping us looking young and beautiful than any facial. We all know the basics – burgers, chips and chocolate = bad; fruit and veg = good – but which foods can really make us look our shiny, beautiful best?

We asked expert foodies to tell us what we should be putting in our shopping baskets to enhance our looks.

Papaya, Spinach and Kale:

It might seem like a random combination, but papaya, spinach and kale all provide a phytochemical called lutein, which according to experts from the Department of Dermatology at the University of Naples helps to boost the skin’s antioxidant capacity thereby protecting against damage from free radicals.

Blackcurrants:

Researchers at Hirosaki University in Japan have just completed an intensive study which shows that blackcurrants can actually help reduce dark circles under the eyes.

The tests proved that the consumption of blackcurrants improved the blood flow around the optical nerves and drastically reduced the effect of ‘sagging eyes’.

The good news is that it’s not just fresh blackcurrants that can help, blackcurrants in any form will do the trick – including in jams and pies!

Nail Polish Tips: How to Get Model-Perfect Nails!

1) Make Fresh Paint!

Don’t waste that half-used bottle of red: “Combine two shades to create newer ones,” says celeb manicurist Myrdith Leon-McCormack. Grab last season’s leftover polish, pour another shade in it, add clear lacquer, too, then roll the bottle between your palms to blend.

2) Avoid Chips!

To make lacquer stay put, paint the tips, too. Do two thin coats of polish, then hold the brush vertically and swipe the color along the nail’s edge. “And don’t skimp,” says celeb manicurist Deborah Lippmann. “Always apply a base coat, two layers of polish, and a topcoat.”

3) Do Texture!

“Put sequins on top of polish while it’s wet, then finish with a topcoat,” Lippmann suggests. Or try a glitter-flecked color. For a girly look, cover your nails with lace, says nail pro Dana Caruso.

4) Try a Bold French Mani!

Instead of pink and white, “do brighter color combos,” says nail pro Kim D’Amato. One cool idea pictured here: a blue base like Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquer in Party in the Penthouse, paired with wild orange tips in Mango Maven ($8 each, Target).

5) Keep it Neutral!

Flesh-toned polish “makes your hands look elongated,” says nail guru Mike Potter. Try a pinky nude if you have a fair or medium skin tone. Stick with rich, earthy nudes if your skin is dark.
