When it comes to beauty, new trends and new beauty hacks are always on the rise .If you are looking for a useful hair hack or want to learn some new beauty tricks to incorporate into your daily routine– check out these 10 life-changing beauty hacks below.
Ice Cube Facial
After washing your face, take an ice cube and rub it all over your face to shrink pores and improve blood circulation. This feel good ice massage will leave your skin more softer and radiant. Rubbing ice on your face can soothe sunburn, swelling and irritated pimples as well.
Wash your hair less
Stop over washing your hair and save some time! If you wash your locks daily, it really isn’t necessary. Ditch the daily hair washing routine and push hair washing back as far as 4 days at a time, by using dry shampoo (Hack: rub a little baby powder in your roots for an easy way to soak up oils in your hair), using shampoo less by rinsing your tresses with conditioner only when bathing or wearing different hairstyles between washing (Hack: a good up-do will have your hair looking great without washing). Braids or a high bun are my favorite go-to styles when dealing with 2nd -3rd day hair. Our hair produces their own natural oils and while oily hair may seem like a bad thing, our natural oil is very healthy for our hair, so wash less with shampoo that strips hair from it’s natural oils and enjoy healthier locks! Bonus: — saves time on washing everyday.
Orange & Green Concealers
Using colored concealers can really be life changing to your makeup routine. If you suffer from purplish blue dark circles under your eyes (ME!) orange concealers will be your new BFF, try out this NYX orange concealer and apply your normal makeup as you would on top for a more awaken look. Now let’s talk red spots, green concealers will tone out the red spots on your face, place a dab of green concealer over a red zit or red patches on your face and apply your makeup as usual to finish off your look.
Use Translucent Powder To “Bake” Makeup
Baking helps to set everything in its place and give off a flawless, long lasting, full coverage finish. Apply moisturizer, then apply concealer, and even more concealer, now apply a layer of translucent powder, then let it “bake”, and lastly, blend it away. For a detailed step by step how to on makeup “baking” watch the video above.
Rub your entire body down in a thick layer of coconut oil and shea butter before bedtime to wake up to moisturized, smell good, softer skin. Apply a thick amount of Vaseline to your feet and cover with socks at night for softer, flip flop ready feet.
Triangle Under-eye Concealer
Draw a triangle shape under your eyes with your concealer to really brighten the entire eye area.
Apple Cider Vinegar & Green Tea Toner
This is an old, yet very useful skincare hack. Take 3/4 cup strong green tea and mix with 1/4 cup raw apple cider vinegar store your mixture in a mason jar or spray bottle in the fridge. Apply the mixture to a cotton ball and then on to your face after cleansing and before you apply moisturizer. The green tea acts as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant to the skin, while the apple cider vinegar restores the skins natural pH balance.
White Eyeliner To Brighten
If you’re wanting a way to brighten up tired looking eyes, skip the black eyeliner and instead reach for a white or nude eyeliner to really give your eyes the pop they deserve. Colored eyeliner is also a fun way to add a fun pop of color to your makeup look, swipe a shimmery purple eyeliner on your bottom lid to create a bright summer look.
Moisturizer: Oily Skin VS Dry Skin
If you struggle with oily skin, try to stay away from creamy moisturizer products, instead opt for a gel moisturizer like SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream. Other products to stay away from when dealing with oily skin — anything with shimmers, which will cause your face to appear more shiny. Blushes, bronzer and moisturizers should all be shimmer free and matte.
Wear Bigger Shoes To Prevent Blisters
This one is a favorite for the newest royalty family member, Meghan Markle. According to The Sun, “Celebs often go a size up, or even two, in the shoe department when they’re at an event or on the red carpet, and it’s for one reason we can all relate to—to avoid blisters,” said fashion expert Harriet Davey.
