① Acne Busting Hack
Have you ever wonder why your zits keep on coming back no matter how you spent top dollar on acne fighting remedies that don’t do much rather than drying your skin?
Why not make an effort to change your pillow case regularly so you won’t be rubbing your face with the same grime and dirt from your hair and face repeatedly?
Despite the fact that my eating habits are keeping my skin mostly clear, I continue to experience some few zits around my jawline. So, I decided to go to Target a few weeks ago and grabbed 7 pillow cases, which means I need to replace my pillow case every single day. I’m not sure whether it’s merely a fluke, but now I’m practically 100% clear today.
Acne outbreaks can take place due to numerous factors which include diets and hormone imbalances. The most effective cure to prevent zits from happening is good hygiene.
Although dirt or grime alone is not necessarily the root cause of pimples, regular washing of the skin and tresses are advisable to avoid the oil deposit that results in clogged pores. On top of that, replacing your bedding and pillowcases fairly often could reduce breakouts from occurring.
② Makeup Remover Hack
Rather than investing in costly eye makeup remover, you can simply use your own moisturizing lotion for most eye-makeup removal needs, even the waterproof ones.
So, the next time you ran out of makeup remover, grab some moisturizer and apply it generously on your face and let it sit for a minute and wipe it off with a cotton pad or a washcloth before rinsing thoroughly. Or you can use baby shampoo or olive oil as one of the alternatives that work the same job.
③ Lotion Hack
Coconut oil is very popular nowadays as more people are raving about it. It worked amazingly as a body moisturizer and been verified to cure psoriasis, eczema, and even severe dry skin.
Put the kibosh on putting too much money into buying a lotion to dehydrate your skin as coconut oil does the same thing. I love using coconut oil after a shower. For my concoction, I added few drops of grapefruit oil and apply them to my skin. It makes my skin soft and smooth.
④ Body Wax Hack
Waxing is quite expensive particularly if you are getting the entire shebang from top to bottom. I am sure some women prefer to wax at home, and some of us are not brave enough to perform this out of fear.
You can pay for fancy body waxes, or you can hack this sugaring Epilation recipe or Body Hair Removal recipe here. It’s almost painless compared with other traditional solutions.
⑤ Face Mask Hack
Grab some raw honey and spread it on your face and let it sit for 10 -20 minutes. Honey is an excellent humectant. Therefore, it’s useful in retaining moisture in our skin aside from that, it is a mild disinfectant.
It is also an excellent exfoliant because honey includes gluconic acid that acts as a gentle alpha hydroxy acids, these harmless acids enable to ease the bonds between dead skin cells thus making it less difficult to remove the layer. Plus, this kind of acids boost skin elasticity, increase collagen production and stabilize oily skin leaving you a more youthful look.
⑥ Face Toner Hack
Loaded with antioxidants, along with vitamins C and E, green tea is a wonderful skin toner and anti-irritant. Probably the most well-known non-alcoholic drinks worldwide, green tea could also soothe sunburn or irritated skin.
How to: Bring water to a boil and brew 2 green teas, allowing them to steep for around 3 minutes and squirt some lemon and a pinch of fresh mint ( this is optional, but it helps fight pimples), then store in the fridge. Transfer the rejuvenating spritz mixture to a mister bottle and spritz onto your face. Do not rinse off.
⑦ Hair Dye Hack
Opt out on expensive and toxic hair dyes and go all natural with your favorite tea! Here’s a handy guide to type and the color it will bring out in your locks.
⑧ Foot Exfoliating Hack
Maybe things are tough all over, and your feet need a facial. Grab some potatoes and cut it into halves and dip it in sea salt and you have a hacked pumice stone. Now get scrubbing! Wash it off with warm water and your feet will look like new.
⑨ Face Cleanser Hack
Grab your powdered milk and place it in a container. Gradually, add lukewarm water while mixing it with your finger or a stirrer. We need to create a consistency of a paste rather than runny so make sure to slowly add the water.
Apply the paste on your freshly washed face and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes and use a washcloth to rinse off with warm/tepid water. Once your face is totally cleaned devoid of milk residue, splash your face with cold water to close your pores back in. You can follow it up with witch hazel toner or your favorite moisturizer.
⑩ Shaving Hack
Use cheap hair conditioner as shaving cream. This hack worked great for me as my legs were smooth and there was no razor burn to boot. Shaving cream creates a layer between the razor and your skin while protecting from nicks and cuts. Conditioners work just as well, and they moisturize while you shave.
