Almost every girl needs just a few beauty tips and tricks, and down below we have a few that you might like. So check them out and try them for yourselves!
If you want to add something to your drinks and food that keeps your skin looking younger, repairs your body (after working out), AND gives you energy throughout the day, then I would seriously recommend collagen protein powder which you can check out here.
ALSO, this brand is specifically great since it’s flavorless (which is awesome since I hate adding things that make my favorite drinks and food taste horrible). So I would definitely check it out here and see how you feel and look after using it for a little while.
1. Massage your lips with Shea butter before bed.
Chapped lips? Massage your lips with a soft toothbrush and then apply some Shea butter, nature’s moisturizer. It’s full of fatty acids that keeps the skin supple and soft.
2. Deal with crow’s feet using a four-fruit combo.
Crow’s feet are typically dealt with using botox, but one study suggests a four-fruit combo: white mulberry, ginkgo fruit, pomegranate, and figs. Each of these is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants that curb skin wrinkles. The study combined them into a 2% cream that reduced the wrinkle area by 29.55% over 56 days. You can eat any of these fruits or drink a pomegranate peel tea. Don’t overdo the ginkgo.
3. Moisturize and wash cuticles.
Your cuticles are dainty and need enough care to help them stay healthy. They seal the gap between your skin and your nails but can get infected. Instead of nibbling on them or cutting them off, put some coconut oil on them. The oil will moisturize the skin and let the cuticle repair. Dip your hands in warm, soapy water for 5 minutes every couple days to wash your cuticles.
4. Castor or coconut oil on eyelashes makes them strong.
Beautiful eyelashes frame the eyes and make a gaze that much more appealing. So apply some coconut oil on eyelashes before bed to make them strong. Wash the oil off during your morning cleansing routine. You can use a cotton ball or a clean mascara wand. Keep in mind that it takes 2-3 months before the results show. Apply only to tips of eyelashes.
5. Use a pumice stone on your feet.
Your feet are constantly under pressure but don’t get the care they deserve. So make yourself a warm foot bath and soak your feet for 15-20 minutes. Then, use a pumice stone to gently scrub all the dead skin off. It will look and feel like you’ve got a whole new pair of feet. And don’t forget to moisturize with Shea butter or coconut oil.
6. Get rid of blackheads with retinoid creams.
Pores can get infected, which is how blackheads start. And you’ve probably tried washing your face all the time to no avail. Squeezing them out only infects the skin more but that’s where retinoids come in. Retinoids are derivatives of vitamin A. They help the skin repair itself and naturally clear the blackheads.
7. Minimize shaving to deal with ingrown hairs.
If you keep plucking and shaving your hair, you’re bound to get ingrown hairs, which is what happens when they can’t push out of the skin. So don’t pick ingrown hairs and stop shaving those spots for a while.
8. Remove black circles under eyes using cold teabags.
Many people have black circles around the eyes. The reason why they appear is that the skin around the eyes is very thin. One study tried to figure out how to clear them and found a simple cure—caffeine. Brew some tea and put the teabags in the fridge until cold. Place the teabags on the dark circles and leave them like that for 5-10 minutes. The caffeine will constrict the blood vessels and remove the black circles.
Whether you want some quick fixes or tips that’ll help make you more beautiful over time, give these a try! I think you’ll like them.
