I’m always up for some beauty hacks! I also love it when regular things you use around the house can be used in different and clever ways- especially as beauty products! Everyday household items doing double duty means you can save money, plus it’s always cool to have a few tricks up your sleeve. I’m happy to share with you these fabulous beauty hacks using everyday items:
You can usually get a whole lot of coffee filters for a pretty good price, so use them as face blotters! They do the same job as the blotting papers you buy for your face, but you already have them around, and they’re cheaper.
Green tea bags:
After making your tea, put the tea bags in the fridge and use them to reduce eye puffiness. Place over your closed eyes for about ten minutes and relax. When you take them off your eyes will be refreshed.
You know how you use dryer sheets to control the static in your laundry? They’ll do the same for your hair. Use a dryer sheet to flame flyaway hair.
Too lazy to shampoo, or want to stretch your blowout one more day? Use cornstarch in place of dry shampoo.
Dust some baby powder on your lashes before applying mascara for fuller looking lashes. You can use baby powder as dry shampoo, too.
If nail polish is making your natural nails yellow, rub on some whitening toothpaste.
Dish soap is your go-to for removing makeup stains from clothing.
Speed up drying on your DIY manicure with a spritz of cooking spray. Added bonus: it will also moisturize your cuticles. Wait a couple of minutes after applying polish for best results.
Olive oil works great at removing waterproof makeup. It’s also a great moisturizer.
Gently rub olive oil on your lips using a soft toothbrush to exfoliate and moisturize.
Dab a little on your pulse points before applying perfume to make it last longer.
Mascara is technically a beauty item- for your lashes. But you can also use it in a pinch to touch up roots.
