Beauty Hacks Your Skin Will Thank You For

posted in Beauty > Skin & Body
  • At-Home Burn incidents

    Did you burn yourself with a curling iron, scorching hot pan, or something else? Instead of applying ice to minor burns, slather a thick layer of raw honey onto the burn. It will immediately cut the sting of the burn, but also provide antibacterial protection while keeping skin hydrated.

  • Fix Morning Eyes

    Waking up with puffy eyes doesn't help anyone look like a morning person. Place a spoon in the freezer the night before and in the morning, hold the back of the spoon under or on top of the eyelids to decrease the puffiness and inflammation. Cool tea bags or cucumbers work too.

  • Skin-Soothing Aloe for Acne

    The leaves of aloe Vera ants are known to reduce facial acne flare ups thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. It can also heal existing acne, prevent future breakouts, and soothe sunburns. Simply break open an aloe leaf and apply directly to the problem areas for a natural acne fix, or squeeze into ice cube trays, let freeze, and rub ice cubes onto skin for an easy, clean application.

  • Big-Bite Baths

    For bubble bath lovers, add half a cup of baking soda Arm & Hammer to hot water for a soothing soak. It will neutralize acids and skin irritants such as sunburn and bug bites.

  • For Wrinkles

    Vitamin A found in dark leafy greens and cantaloupe is the key to rejuvenating your skin and smoothing out fine lines and uneven skin tone, making it particularly helpful for those who have acne.

  • For Dry Skin

    Vitamin E found in mangos, almonds, broccoli, and spinach help to balance the skins moisture levels and work as an effective antioxidant to help fight free radicals in the body. Vitamins A, C, and E encourage cell and tissue growth to help the body repair itself throughout its constant shedding and growing cycles.

  • Coconut Oil

    You can use coconut oil to remove makeup. Simply put a small amount on a cotton pad and wipe it over makeup to dissolve and whisk it away.

  • Shaving

    When you run out of shaving cream, lather your legs in conditioner as a substitute.

  • So You Don't Chafe

    Apply deodorant to the inside of your thighs in the summer so they don't rub or chafe.

  • Exfoliate Dry Scalp with a Teaspoon of Sugar

    Add a teaspoon of sugar to your shampoo and massage thoroughly.

  • Oatmeal Bath

    If you are going to soak, oatmeal is a good bet. Put 1/2 cup of dried rolled oats in a cheesecloth and drop it in your bath.

  • Moisturize with Your Own Sweat

    If you're a runner, skier, or snow-shoer (or any kind of winter outdoors woman/man) try this next time you brave the cold. Slather Vaseline on your hands and slip on a pair of cotton gloves. The Vaseline traps the sweat on your hands, allowing the trapper sweat to act as a natural moisturizer.
