I love health and beauty tips and hacks; whatever keeps me looking young and saves me money on overly expensive beauty care products. In fact, I’ve probably read too many of them, and by now my skin is probably wondering why I’m lathering coffee and oatmeal masks onto my face. But these tips can seriously help you with skin health, as well as saving time and money on hair and makeup.
As females, there’s a lot to keep track of, but if there are beauty hacks to make things easier, then I’m all for it. Give me those crazy scrubs and weird eyeliner tricks, I need all the help I can get.
Green Tea Bags for Puffiness: When I first saw my sister do this, I’m pretty sure I gave her a weird look. But after learning about how putting green tea bags just under (or on) your eyes can get rid of puffiness and dark circles, I was all about it (this probably ranks high in my favorite health and beauty tips)
Eye Shadow for Thicker Hair: This is a simple and quick trick if you want to give the appearance of having thicker hair. Just take a small to medium sized brush, pick an eyeshadow that is very close to your own hair color, and then apply at the roots of where your hair parts. It’s as easy as that!
The Concealer Triangle: A lot of the time, us women apply concealer in line with our dark circles. But this is the worst way to reduce the appearance of them. What you need to do instead is create a “V” (or inverted triangle) shape, and blend into your skin to get a more well rested and brighter look!
Nails in Cold Water: This was one of the first health and beauty tips I ever learned. When I was a kid, my sister (the same one with the tea bags) did my nails and taught me this hack. After coating your nails with polish, dip them into a pre-prepared bowl of ice water, and let them set for about a minute.
