Beauty Hacks You Should Know About

Beauty Hacks You Should Know About

Hacks! What is a hack really? Well, it is a way to make something quick. To use a product in a new way. To make things easier. Some are life-changing – like the current photo of how you should be packing your suitcase, and others are just a bit smart, like ditching shampoo and learning to co-wash for people with curly hair.

Here are some quick tips to help you manage your skincare and beauty routine a little bit better. 

Sunglasses are laden with sweat and bacteria.

More often than not, people put them straight back on their face without cleaning them. If you have time for a breakout then cool, if not keep a pack of alcohol wipes in the sunglasses case, or your bag – and set a reminder for every day of the summer. Your pores will thank you. 

Ditch shaving cream.

If you are using a razor instead of other hair removal techniques, then next time your shaving use a conditioner instead. It makes the skin slippier, smoother and adds hydration. Many women finding making this switch lessens shaving rash too. 

Cleavage needs some love too.

Sunscreen is not a hack; it is an essential, however; the hack for looking a bit perkier is highlighting in all the right places. If you need a lift, or just really want to feel super confident then try silicone inserts or a great push up bra. If you need a more permanent solution, then Kitto Plastic Surgery might be worth a look. 

Natural make-up remover?

Well, while some of the chemical-filled ones really will do the job, and some micellar waters are for sensitive skin to be even more basic – in a good way – use a reusable cotton pad and some coconut oil. The oil will get rid of every single drop of make-up and is really hydrating. If you are prone to breakouts, then cleanse after as usual. 

Eye cream is essential.

Your eyes take a heck of a lot of damage from the sun, from us not drinking enough water and of course all that laughing we do. It is the first place that is likely to show your age, or even age you. The skin can become dry there too. A rich night eye cream will give some serious hydration. The hack? Use it around your mouth too. It’s gentle enough not to cause a breakout and designed to plump out fine lines and wrinkles. 

Vaseline is still queen.

There are so many other slaves on the market, but if you are looking for a quick fix to pretty much, any beauty problem vaseline is your friend. Dry lips? Vaseline. Chapped knuckles? Vaseline. Need to slick your brows? Vaseline. If you are heading somewhere after work and don’t have your kit with you – a slick of vaseline on your cheekbones will work in place of highlighter too. 


Working on your confidence will be a long term thing really, but you can quickly make yourself feel better by slinging on your favorite lipstick, favorite shoes, and hold that superwoman pose for a few minutes. It will make you feel powerful and ready to take on the world.

5 Tips for Looking Great…Without Spending (Much) Money

5 Tips for Looking Great…Without Spending (Much) Money

Let’s be honest: there’s a reason all those celebrities and socialites always look a million dollars. It’s because they have a million dollars to spend on their beauty routines! Most of us, however, are not quite so lucky. We have to juggle our beauty expenses with all the other costs of life, like paying rent, paying bills, and all those cocktails we have when we look our best. Just because you’re not a millionaire doesn’t mean you have to settle for less, though. You can still look amazing without breaking the bank.

Repurpose Old Clothes

If you’ve been buying clothes over the past few years, then you’ll have plenty of items in your wardrobe to choose from. The problem is, they might have gone out of fashion. Instead of letting these items just gather dust in your wardrobe, why not get out the needle and thread and see if you can make them look like new on your own? Take a look at trendsandideas.com/40-mindblowing-ways-to-repurpose-old-clothing/ for ideas. You might be able to put together a whole new outfit without buying a single new item!

Avoid the Salon

We can comfortably spend a month’s worth of disposable income just by visiting the salon to take care of our hair. But you don’t have to go: you can do everything you’d pay for at the salon right from your own home. Take a look at the pros and cons of the Flowbee haircutting system at http://hairclippercenter.net/flowbee-haircutting-system-review/: you might find that it’s the perfect solution for having your hair look good without paying top prices. Also, who says you need top end shampoo to keep your hair looking silky and smooth? Advocates of the no-poo (no shampoo) movement say baking soda and vinegar works better – and costs a fraction of the price.

Ditch the Gym

Sometimes it’s not about how good our clothes, hair, and skin look – it’s about how toned our body is. As such, you might think that a gym membership is an essential part of looking your best, but it’s not. You can easily get by without slugging it out at the gym by doing exercises that are completely free. Take a look at https://www.buzzfeed.com/carolynkylstra/youtube-fitness for a list of the best YouTube fitness channels. You’ll be fit and toned, and still, have your cash in your purse.

Prioritise the Makeup Bag

There’s no getting around the makeup essentials. But here’s the thing: many people go far beyond the essentials, picking up more makeup than they know what to do with, thinking that they’ll be an occasion somewhere along the line where it’s called for. In truth, you can get by with just the basics. Learn how to do a lot with little and you’ll go a long way.

When In Doubt, Buy Dark

And finally: when you do need to buy clothes but don’t have the budget to get the very best, buy dark clothing. It’ll cover up that the item is inexpensive, and dark clothes have a tendency to look great even when cheap.
