Beauty Hacks – around the home
A popular subject lately, at home beauty hacks are always being posted on the socials… some are very questionable and pointless but nonetheless, there are many that work and a lot of tips past through generations.
I’ve put together a few popular ones!
Hair conditioner for shaving
I remember reading about this one in just 17 magazine or the like in my teens and it does actually work! By softening the hair and giving a smooth glide, it can be a good alternative to foam,
Just be careful of the bath or shower getting slippery
Keeping a few used teabags from the day and applying them on the eye area like a mask can help reduce puffiness, give a brighter look to the eyes and soothe irritation. Allergy season is upon us so this is great for itchy eyes!
Just pop them on for a few minutes with your eyes closed.
Most of us will always have a bottle of olive oil on the go for cooking but it’s also a great one to have on hand for skin issues such as dryness or to mix with brown sugar to make a luxurious and effective body scrub.
When I’m cooking and get oil or the residue in my hand, I never wipe it off, I’ve got in to the habit of rubbing it in.
Vaseline to remove stubborn eye makeup
We all know Vaseline is a staple and has a multitude of uses, but one that’s really effective is removing eye makeup. With your ring finger, massage a tiny amount over the eye area as you would with a cleansing balm and you will start to see the makeup break down. Have some warm damp cotton pads or a face cloth at the ready and watch it literally just slide off! This is also a very relaxing way to take off your makeup and your eyes will feel lovely and refreshed… be careful not to get in to eyes.
Out of your favourite! Sprinkle a little corn flour on to your hair to for a quick fix!
The beauty and medicinal benefits of honey are centuries old and no secret. Great to have around for dry lips, diy face masks and skin irritations
I love a good beauty hack and things you have around the house can always come in handy when you are out of your usual products. Just remember to use with caution xx
