The best kept beauty tips and secrets that you can really use. They cost nothing, and are oh so convenient! We give you the 30 best tips to keep your skin in top condition.
Freeze your eyeliner
Does your eyeliner constantly run when you apply it?
Put it in the freezer for 10 minutes 15 minutes before applying your makeup. It should then glide seamlessly along your lash line.
Shave with conditioner
When you run out of shaving cream, lather your legs with conditioner instead of shaving soap. Conditioner softens the hair on your legs making it easier to shave (and gives your skin an extra silky feel). You can also use coconut oil.
Rinse hair with beer or vinegar
Rinsing your hair with beer restores moisture to your hair, while using vinegar increases shine. Soak your hair in either liquid for a few minutes (not at the same time) and then rinse with cool water.
For curled, flirty lashes, heat the lash curler with a blow dryer for five to eight seconds before curling them. They curl better and easier.
Use ice cubes to curb fat, acne and wrinkles
By massaging an ice cube over your face until it melts. Do it every night before bed and keep fat, acne and wrinkles under control.
Before applying nail polish, wipe the nails with an acetone-based cleanser. Cleaning excess dirt, oil, or moisturizer on your nails will help keep the polish in place.
Use excess eye cream on the cuticles. The more you moisturize your cuticle, the stronger your nails will be.
Apply sunscreen daily
Wear sunscreen every day in rain or shine. Even if it’s cloudy. Sun cream is also a perfect conditioner for your skin.
Don’t ignore your elbows
It’s easy to forget your elbows, but they need just as much protection and care as other parts of your body. Apply coconut oil daily and massage in briefly. You can see and feel softer elbows in just two days.
Lighten hair with chamomile tea and lemon juice
Rinse your hair with a mixture of chamomile and fresh lemon juice instead of conditioner to permanently lighten your hair. Let your hair dry while in the sun or use a blow dryer, the heat will lighten your locks.
Fighting bags and circles with raw potatoes
Raw potato slices soothe your eyes. They help reduce fluid retention, reduce puffiness, and they also contain the enzyme catalase that helps lighten dark circles under the eyes. First wash and peel a potato. Cut two slices and place one on each eye for 10 minutes. Lie down, relax and let the potatoes do their magic. Rinse the eye area with lukewarm water when you’re done.
The trick to getting a sleek celebrity-like face is contouring. Your face is three-dimensional, so applying foundation in a single shade will only make your face appear flat. Add highlighter to areas of your face that usually catch light, creating enough shade to emphasize your jawline and cheekbones.
Say goodbye to makeup sponges
Makeup sponges help you apply makeup, but not without cost. They usually take up more liquid foundation than what ends up on your face. The result? You waste foundation and constantly buy new sponges. The solution? Buy a foundation brush. You waste less foundation and ensure a more even and precise application than a sponge.
Avoid excessive rouge
Want to give yourself a natural glow with a rouge? Avoid spending too much (so you don’t look like a clown). So always start with your blush line two finger widths away from your nose and only apply it to the apples of your cheeks. This ensures that you create a natural glow without going overboard. Take 1 to 2 shades darker if your foundation or skin tone.
Spray an old toothbrush with hairspray, then brush the brows and style them as desired. Even the hardest brows to tame will fall down well with this trick.
Apply false eyelashes
Adding extra lashes instantly increases the glamor. First, take your falsies and loosen them by gently bending the lash band and curl your natural lashes so that your falsies line up with your actual lash line. Apply glue to your falsies using a Q-tip. Using tweezers (or fingertips if you think this will give you more control), place your false lashes as close to your lash line as possible. Let your lashes dry for a minute before applying a coat of mascara.
You’ve probably heard this before, don’t squeeze your pimples! Apply a little toothpaste on the pimple before going to bed and when you wake up in the morning wash it off with lukewarm water. They say that toothpaste removes impurities from the clogged pores and dries the skin with the pimple. Opt for organic toothpastes instead of gel toothpastes that don’t work as well. No no no! Don’t pop your pit. Not only does it increase the chances of scarring, it’s also likely to worsen the stain and spread bacteria to other areas on your face that could trigger another outbreak.
Remove excess oil
Do you start the morning with matte, fresh skin only to find that by the time it’s 12 noon, you’ve got a shiny mess? If you have oily skin, blotting paper is a great solution. Do not use powder to absorb oil. Using too much powder throughout the day will leave your skin looking cakey because you’re just putting makeup on top of your makeup. Opt for tissue paper instead. They will absorb all the oil.
No makeup remover? Try body lotion instead
If you run out of makeup remover, use body lotion to remove makeup. It works especially well on waterproof mascara. Coconut oil is also a good make-up remover.
If you are tired of having thin lips, stretch your lip line with a neutral tinted lip pencil. Then apply lipstick over the top. Be careful though, don’t extend your lip line too much. Or apply cinnamon oil to the lips every night before going to sleep, according to reliable sources you will get fuller lips.
Exfoliating: Dry, flaky, chapped lips are the worst point for lipstick. To make sure your lips are in perfect condition, the experts recommend exfoliating your lips. To do this, apply lip balm to your lips and use a toothbrush to scrub your lips (don’t be too rough).
When choosing a foundation, test the product on the skin near the jawline. And make sure you do it in natural light. This ensures that the foundation shade you choose for your face doesn’t differ too much from the natural shade of your
Hairy legs? wear tights
What’s worse than wearing a skirt with absolutely no time to shave your legs? We’ve all experienced it. The hassle-free solution to this is to wear patterned tights, it will disguise stubble and any stains on your legs.
Before epilating, make sure to soften your skin by dabbing a cotton ball dipped in warm water or cream. When you start epilating, do it in the direction of the growth of your hair.
Camouflage gray hair
If you want to camouflage some gray hair, you can use mascara if you have dark hair. For blondes or redheads, try dabbing your roots with a brush with bronzing powder.
Cutting back on pedicures
Save money by taking care of your feet every day. Simply scrub your foot with a pumice stone in the shower every morning. Once you get out and dry, apply a moisturizer to your feet. This will increase the amount of time you can go without seeing a pedicure, and will keep your feet healthy and fungus free.
Don’t pump your mascara
Mascara should never be pumped (that is, moving the brush up and down the tube very quickly) as it will only let air into the tube and cause your mascara to dry out (and ultimately shorten its lifespan).
Apply bronzer evenly
Before applying a self-tanning lotion, mix a drop or two of the solution with moisturizer. Mix it with your finger or a Q-tip and apply it to the skin as you normally would. This ensures that the cream blends into the skin and coats the skin evenly. Scrub beforehand!
Use oil on your skin… even if it is already oily
This may sound crazy, but using an oil-based product to remove makeup or excess dirt from your face can improve the condition of your epidermis. Why? Excessive cleansing stimulates the sebaceous glands, causing the skin to produce too much oil. Using oil-based products has the opposite effect.
Apply a product containing azulene or witch hazel to reduce the swelling and redness associated with ingrown hairs.
Drying your hair
Do not wipe your hair dry with your towel; it will make your hair frizz. Instead, gently squeeze excess water from your hair before getting out of the shower. Then wrap your hair in a towel and pat it dry to absorb any remaining moisture.
Don’t shower yourself with perfume (you don’t want to bombard other people’s nostrils with strong scents). Just because you can’t smell it yourself doesn’t mean other people won’t. If you wear it every day, chances are your sense of smell has become desensitized to the smell. Only spray perfume on specific areas such as your knees, wrists, throat and behind your earlobes.
