So I’ve sort of done this before, but not really so here we go again, here’s more beauty hacks some natural and some just simply fabulous.
- ♥ I’m going nutty for coconuts! ♥
So this one I actually haven’t tried properly myself but after googling around I found that coconut oil is a pretty good beauty product! Apparently rubbing it into your shin can leave you with silky soft legs and can sooth eczema break outs pretty well too
. Massaging it into your cuticles can strengthen them.
Rubbing coconut oil into your hair can also help with split ends. (Yay.)
First rub the oil the ends of your hair, leave to dry for fifteen minuets, then rinse. Next , wet all your hair with apple vinegar (one cup full, diluted with a couple drops of water.) And rinse again. Hay-presto no more split ends!
It works great as a cute clear lip-gloss!
2. ♥ Don’t drink that apple cider we need it for important beauty purposes! ♥
Yeah apple cider seems to come up a lot when searching for natural acne treatment, it’s suppose to work pretty well, just apply it as you would your normal toner, but I’d steer clear of it if you’ve got really sensitive skin, (remember apples are acidic!)
Apple cider can also help get rid of shampoo build up which can cause dandruff… ew. Just rinse it through your hair.
3. ♥ lots of lovely fruits ♥
Lemon juice can be rubbed on the skin to reverse discolouration. It works great as a facial toner and over time can lighten age spots.
Spray your hair with equal parts lemon juice and water for some natural highlights. ( This works great for Brunettes.
Though apple cider is good for reducing and clearing up spots and acne apples on there own are as well. This is because apple contain a thing called pectin which fights away acne.
Mash some of these with baking soda and rub on you teeth to whiten them!
Egg whites are actually a really great beauty product! Dab under your eyes to remove puffy bags.
Make into a face mask to get rid of oily skin!
Getting rid of blackheads: Egg whites form an easy mask that can be used to temporarily tighten pores, this can reduce the chances of getting blackheads, and will also remove current blackheads. Egg whites are also rich in nutrients for your skin, and are a little less drying than some other home-made remedies for getting rid of blackheads.
Just place a strip of facial tissue or toilet paper over the wet egg white, being sure to press it onto your face gently. Allow the first layer to dry. Carefully apply a second layer of egg white over the tissue (try dipping your fingers in it and dabbing it on so the tissue doesn’t slide around. Let this layer dry as well before applying a third (optional.) When the mask is dry, your face may feel tight-this is supposed to happen. Peel the tissue off, and then gently wash your face to remove any residue. Pat dry and moisturize as usual.
So, from fruits and eggs onto something a little less natural and a little more D.I.Y drug store style…
Do it yourself liquid eyeliner.
Ever go to liner your eyes with your eye pencil and come to the realization that you really want some winged eyeliner? Let’s hope I’m not the only one.. I f you ever do come to this conclusion or have just run out of liquid then this next hack is just what you need.
Grab your eye pencil and heat it with a lighter for literally a second or two no more. Then leave it to cool for fifteen seconds, go to use it and you’ll find it works exactly like liquid eyeliner. This is the type of thing that’s just perfect for camping at a festival, where you can really bring hordes of make-up along with you!
Lots and lots of lipstick.
Okay, so if you’re anything of a beauty addict like I am, then you probably have as couple billion lipsticks knocking about in your room. If so then these little hacks are probably for you.
So say you’ve got a couple of nude lipsticks they’re always really great for use as eye shadow, especially anything slightly sparkly, like frosted nude colours.
Any type of brightly coloured lipsticks from peaches to pinks and red can be used as really cute blushes.
So that’s a about it for now, let me know if you guys have any beauty hacks of your own, I’d love to hear them!
