We all want to look our best, and there are plenty of tools, tricks, and tutorials around to help us do that. We buy products we see on television and hope for the best. Most of the time, these products are overpriced and don’t work.
Looking your best doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money, though. There are plenty of beauty hacks that can help you use the things you already have in your home or office to help improve your looks. Most of the time, the hacks are simple to understand, too.
The next time you find yourself in a pinch and need some help with your hair, makeup, clothes, or nails, just think of a way to hack your way through it. Necessity is the mother of invention, and most of these hacks were born from necessity.
Here are 30 beauty hacks that actually work. You will probably find yourself using them more than you expect. And don’t be afraid to share them with your friends and family. Everyone deserves to feel beautiful.
1. Potatoes For Dark Skin
If you have dark skin under your arms or on other areas of your body, you may be embarrassed by how it looks. Instead of hiding it or buying expensive products to cover it up that don’t work, just slice a raw potato and rub it on the dark area. It will lighten the skin.
2. Biotin Supplements
If healthy skin and nails were as simple as taking a supplement, wouldn’t you do it? Well, taking about 8,000 mcg of Biotin daily can help. Plastic surgeons and dermatologists from all over the world have validated this.
3. Use A Silicone Oven Mitt To Clean Makeup Brushes
Makeup brushes can be expensive, and cleaning them can be a pain. Before you throw them out to buy new ones or spend a lot of money on a fancy brush cleaner, check out your kitchen drawers. A silicone oven mitt is the perfect way to clean makeup brushes. Just run them under some water and brush against the mitt to remove the makeup. You also can put some baking soda on the mitt; just make sure you rinse it out of the brushes when you’re done.
Most people think they can only use one facemask at a time. However, you can save time by applying different masks to different areas of the face. If you have an area that is dry and one that is oily, just use the appropriate mask in the right spot.
5. Panty Liner Shadow Shields
If you are tired of getting eye makeup on your face and need an extra hand to complete your look, panty liners can come in handy. Just cut them into small pieces and stick them under your eyes. They will stay in place and keep the eye makeup off your cheeks.
6. Coffee And Sugar Scrub To Help Fight Cellulite
Mix coffee grounds, sugar, and coconut oil in a bowl to create a scrub. Apply it to the areas with cellulite, and massage it into the skin. Allow it to set for 15 minutes, and then wash it away. Repeat daily to see results.
7. Condition Hair Before Working Out
Since most people wear their hair pulled up during workouts, it’s a great time to deep condition it. The heat from the workout will help the conditioner get deep into the strands, and pulling it back will ensure the conditioner doesn’t drop out easily. When you are done, just shower as you regularly would, and it will rinse out.
8. Exfoliate Chapped Lips
If your lips are chapped and you need to get rid of the dead skin, use a disposable mascara brush to do the job. Gently rub it over your lips, and the dead skin will fall off. This will help your lips heal faster and look better.
9. Use Baby Oil To Shave
Sometimes, you need to shave your legs, but you don’t have time to shower. Instead of trying to do it in the sink, use baby oil. The baby oil will act as a lubricant, so you don’t get razor burn, and you can just wipe your legs off with a towel when you are done.
10. Conditioner Instead Of Shaving Cream
If you are shaving in the shower and find that you are out of shaving cream, don’t panic. Just use conditioner instead. It works just like shaving cream and will leave your legs and underarms soft and smooth.
11. Use A Q-Tip To Blend Eyeshadow
If you are looking for the perfect way to blend your eyeshadow, just use a Q-tip. Pull out the tip and use it to smudge your eyeshadow. When you are done, just toss it in the trash. There’s no messy brush to clean up.
12. Use Liquid Chlorophyll To Stop Hormonal Acne
If you are suffering from acne and have found that it is caused by hormones, there’s something that can help. Just add liquid chlorophyll to your water daily, and it will clear up your skin. Stars like Reese Witherspoon swear by it.
13. Keep Makeup Wipes On Your Nightstand
Sometimes, you come home from work or a long night out and you are just too tired to wash your face. You don’t want to sleep in your makeup, though. If you have some makeup wipes by your bed, you can remove your makeup with ease.
14. Easy Lemon Water
If you want to add lemon to your water but don’t have time to juice a lemon every morning, just do a little prep work the night before. Pour your lemon juice in ice cube trays and freeze. When you are headed out the door, grab a cube and toss it in your water bottle.
15. Store Eye Cream In The Refrigerator
If you really want to give your eyes a wakeup call in the morning, store your eye cream in the refrigerator. It will help soothe your eyes and get rid of puffiness and dark circles. It will also just feel a lot better.
16. Refresh Skin With Green Tea Toner
Is your skin looking dry? Does it seem dull? Give it some new life with a spritz of green tea toner. Just add it to a spray bottle and gift your face a spray whenever you need to add some color and get a glowing, healthy look.
17. Use Two Pillows To Avoid Puffy Eyes
If you are waking up with puffy eyes, you may need to use a second pillow. The pillow will help prop your head up, so the fluids will drain out of your face. You will wake up without the swelling around your eyes or the dark circles.
18. Remove Warts With Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has a lot of uses in the kitchen. It also has a lot of beauty uses. If you have warts on your skin, you can use apple cider vinegar to remove them. Just use a cotton ball to dab it directly on the wart and cover it. Leave it on overnight, and rinse it in the morning. Repeat each night until the wart is gone.
19. Use Vodka To Make Your Razor Last Longer
Disposable razors can be expensive. Make them last longer by soaking them in vodka. It will clean the razor and also help make the blades last longer. Just keep a cup of vodka in your shower and store your razor in it.
20. Whiten Teeth Quickly
There are plenty of products on the market that will whiten your teeth. Most of them are expensive and take a while to work. However, you can whiten your teeth affordably and quickly at home with lemon juice and baking soda. Make a paste with lemon juice and baking soda, and apply it to your teeth. Leave it on for two minutes, and then rinse.
21. Soften Feet Overnight
Who doesn’t want softer feet? You can achieve them overnight with a few items and some soft socks. Just rub Vaseline and Aquaphor Healing Ointment onto your feet and then put on a pair of socks. Simply take your socks off in the morning, and you will have incredibly soft feet.
22. Clean Clippings
If you are tired of picking up nail clipping after your manicures or pedicures, there is an easy solution. Put some tape on the sides of your clippers. When the nails come off, they will get caught inside the clippers. When you are finished, you can just empty them into the trash.
23. Plump Lips With Peppermint
If you want plump lips without paying a lot of money, just add some peppermint oil to your lip balm. It will not only taste and smell great but also make your lips plump. You don’t need surgery or expensive products.
24. Dry Nails With Hairspray
If you need to dry your nails and don’t have a lot of time, just grab some hairspray. The hairspray will set the polish and make it dry faster. Keep a can in your drawer at work or in your car for emergencies.
25. Beauty Sponge Protector
Looking for a way to protect your makeup sponges or travel with them? Use some plastic Easter eggs. Makeup sponges fit in them perfectly, and they make great cases. This is also an effective way to sort sponges by size or type.
26. Rubber Band French Tips
Rubber bands can be wrapped around your fingernails to make the perfect stencil for a French tip. They stay in place and make straight lines. Once you have finished painting your nails, just remove the rubber bands, and you have perfect French tips.
27. Ombre Nails
Don’t run to the nail salon just because you want ombre nails. Do them yourself with an eyeshadow applicator and polish. Just paint the nails a light color and then dab a darker shade on with the applicator. The ombre pattern will appear and look great.
28. Mascara For Grey Hair
Got a few grey hairs you want to hide? Sure, you could make an appointment with your stylist, but that could take some time. If you need something done fast, use some mascara to cover over the greys until your stylist can get you in.
29. Heated Eyelash Curler
You use heat to curl your hair, so why not use it for eyelashes? Just use a hair dryer to heat up a metal eyelash curler. Carefully curl the lashes without touching your skin. The lashes will curl more easily and stay curled longer.
30. Peel-Off Nail Barrier
When you paint your nails, you try your best not to get anything on your fingers. Sometimes, that’s difficult, though. Use some white glue to trace the skin around your nails. Then, paint your nails. When the polish dries, pull off the glue. Your skin will be clear, and your nails will look great.
