Finding the ideal beauty ritual that fits everyone’s needs is not an easy task. We all have different skin types, lifestyles and habits, so it’s tricky to provide a universal solution. There are, however, some truly game-changing beauty hacks everyone can benefit from. These will definitely help you look your best and some of them will even save you time and money. We talked to makeup artists, hairstylists and dermatologists and here are their ultimate beauty tricks for you to try.
A Simple Beauty Hack To Boost Your Hair Volume
Once you’re finished washing and styling your hair (blow drying, flat ironing, curling, etc.), set your hair dryer to cool, flip your head upside down and blow your hair for a couple of minutes. This will give your locks some extra volume and make your hair look thicker.
There’s one more trick you can use to make your locks look fuller. This one is for a day-old (or two-days-old) hair and all you need is a dry shampoo. Just spray the dry shampoo on your roots and massage it with your fingertips into the scalp. Then, flip your head over and blow your hair (using a cool setting on your hair dryer). This will add volume and texture to your hair.
Keep Some Beauty Products In The Fridge
The fridge is the best place to store eye cream. Why? Two reasons. First, the cold keeps it from going bad so it will last longer. Second, by stashing your eye cream in the fridge you will get an instant cooling effect which helps reduce under-eye bags, making the cream more effective.
Nail polish is another item that should be kept in the refrigerator because that way it will not thicken. Instead, it will stay in the same condition as you bought it and will be easy to apply.
Shave Your Legs With Coconut Oil – A Genius Beauty Hack Solution
Replace your regular shaving cream with coconut oil and you’ll be amazed. It’s easier and so much better for your skin. Shaving creams contain all kinds of chemicals, while coconut oil is natural and filled with antioxidants and vitamins. It’s one of the best moisturizers, so your skin will be smooth and silky after the shave. The process itself is the same as with shaving cream or soap. Just rub some coconut oil on the area you want to shave and remove hair with razor.
Get Super Thick Eyelashes Using Baby Powder
Want fuller and longer eyelashes without falsies? There’s a really simple trick you should try because the result is amazing. What you need is your favorite mascara, an eyelash curler, some baby powder and a cotton swab (or an eye shadow brush). Curl your eyelashes and apply one coat of mascara. Then dip the cotton swab (or brush) into the powder and apply it to your lashes. Finally, put another coat of mascara and enjoy your fabulous look!
The Ultimate Beauty Hack – Lip Balm Can Be A Multipurpose Beauty Product
For a quick DIY manicure, rub some lip balm into your cuticles and it will soften them right away.
Don’t have a highlighter with you and want that nice dewy look? Not a problem if you have a lip balm. Just dab some of it on your cheek bones and you’ll get a subtle glow.
A lip balm is a great eye shadow primer, as it intensifies the color and makes the shadow last longer, as long as you make sure you don’t apply too much of it.
If you’re out of a brow gel, you can use lip balm as an alternative. Sweep it across your brows and tame them with a spoolie or a brow brush and you’re good to go.
