10 Beauty Hack All Women Should Know
Battling dry feet. At night, apply lotion or shea butter to your feet and cover them with a pair of socks. Morning rays should bring softer feet. However, you may want to consider doing this for an extended period if you have extremely dry feet.
Stretch dry mascara. If your mascara has become dry and you’re not able to replace it, adding a few drops of saline solution will extend its use somewhat. Do note that it’s best to discard the mascara if you’ve had it for three months or more.
Stop chafing thighs. Sometimes during workouts, the inner thighs can rub, ruining the experience. Applying baby powder to areas that tend to chafe prevents discomfort, keeping you dry and feeling fresh.
Make a nail polish remover. Next time your nail polish remover finishes and low funds make it difficult to replace it immediately before you begin to gnaw or scrape at the polish, try mixing lemon juice and vinegar for a natural remover.
Disguise an overgrown manicure. A simple way of hiding the fact that your nails have outgrown your last manicure is applying glitter nail polish to the exposed area. It’ll help distract eyes until you’re able to make it to your next appointment.
Substitute make-up remover. If you’re unable to find the time to replenish your make-up remover, then we’ve got the perfect substitute—coconut oil. Add a few drops to a cotton swab and use it to remove your make-up.
Have longer-lasting perfume. To lengthen the life of your early morning spritz of perfume, rub a tiny bit of petroleum jelly over it. It will help seal the fragrance to your skin.
Create the perfect winged look. Creating a winged look with your eyeliner can be challenging. An easy way to draw an ideal curve is to use a spoon. Place the spoon with the hollow side against your eyelid. Use your eyeliner to draw the curve, tracing the bottom line of the spoon.
Get thicker lashes. False eyelashes have their place, but for every day thicker lashes, there is a more natural, cheaper, faster option. Apply a coat of mascara, then, using a cotton swab, dust your lashes with baby or translucent powder, and then reapply mascara. You’ll see a noticeable difference.
Admittedly, there are many more tips, tricks or hacks that can lengthen this list. However, these 10 are an excellent place to start.
Enjoy trying them out, and be sure to share them. You never know, you may help make some other woman’s life better.
