Beauty Secrets and Tips that will wow you or keep you on fleek haha.
I crown myself queen of quick makeups, DIYs and even guilty of looking for quick fixes lol. So I did some research I came across a few beauty hacks that I have tried out and work like magic.
Get rid of under eye bags and wrinkles with Castor oil
Here is a quick way for you to get rid of your under eye bag or laugh lines and wrinkles. If you had a particularly long day at work or know you have an early day, you can take the preventative step of applying Castor oil under your eye to prevent the tired look from creeping up on you.
So, get yourself some castor oil girl!.
For easier application I opt for the tablet form.
Poke a hole on the tablet or cut off a piece of the casing, and squeeze out the content.
Apply the castor oil under the eye and other affected area after cleaning your face with your normal face cleaner. I opt for Dudu Osun or Dr Bronner for a good clean, followed by rose water, witch hazel as a toner.
** You can do this before applying your makeup and before going to bed.
Get beautiful bright white teeth by using Activated Charcoal or Baking soda
So you want the bright, clean looking teeth and don’t want to go the harsh chemical route, I have two hacks that will turn make your teeth as white and bright has your heart desires.
Charcoal OR Baking soda
Squeeze some toothpaste on your toothbrush and sprinkle activated Charcoal OR baking soda on the toothpaste. Proceed to brush your teeth as usual.
Concentrating on areas where you may have discoloration. You should do this twice a week to see the best result.Thank me later :)
P.S Activated Charcoal pills are a great supplement for eliminating hang overs ;)
Get your favorite scent or perfume to last all day.
I’m a perfume hoarder and at any moment I alternate between 5-6 perfumes, so this hack was especially beneficial and exciting haha!
Hack #1: Apply Vaseline on your pulse points before spraying on your favorite scent. This allows for the scent to last longer and diffuse the fragrance across the entire body. FYI target areas include your wrist, inside your elbows, on your neck behind knees, on your ankles and calves. Pick your favorite spot and try out this hack.
Hack #2: Spray your perfume on your skin right after getting out of the shower, before getting dressed. This will do 2 things, prevent you from having to spray on your clothes and staining it, I’m very guilty of this, and the moisture on your skin will lock in the scent.
Get healthy glowing skin with baking soda and honey
Want an inexpensive but proven way to exfoliate your skin without damaging effects?, opt for Baking soda and honey. Baking soda is a good way to exfoliate and get rid of dead skin cell, while also eliminating blackheads. Honey cleans out the pores, its anti-inflammatory and nourishing to the skin
1. Mix 2 part honey with 1 part baking soda
2. Massage unto face in circular motion.
3. Allow it to sit on the face for 15 minutes
4. Wash and pat dry
Get your paper towel and pat that face, honey!
This is how I make sure that after I’ve gone through the steps of trying to cleanse my face, I am not reintroducing bacteria or any other irritants. Call me crazy but it works.
There you have it, 5 easy beauty hacks that will keep you looking and feeling great.
