In every busy woman’s life there is time for inserting certain beauty life hacks which will make your routine easier and more effective. The days when we can give over an entire day to beautifying ourselves are rare as hen’s teeth and as such, we need to keep an open mind and an open eye when it comes to those little short cuts to gorgeousness!
Use Aspirin topically to reduce redness
If you suffer from sudden breakouts or the odd pimple, then take a couple of Aspirin, crush them up and add a few drops of water to make a paste. Apply this paste directly to the area of your skin that you need to calm down and leave it on for a few hours or overnight. Aspirin contains anti-inflammatory ingredients which really soothe the skin.
Use Vaseline on your eyelids for a dewy look:
This trick is beloved by models and actresses who want to look natural but still glow. Simply smear a small dab of Vaseline on your eyelids and admire the sparkle!
Whitening toothpaste will fix yellow nails:
Rub the nails all over with a dab of whitening toothpaste to brighten up those nails which have yellowed due to over painting.
Olive oil is pure and has great moisturizing properties so if you need a makeup remover or an emergency moisturizer, simply use extra virgin olive oil on a cotton wool ball. It can also be used as a masque for dry hair!
Cold water for freshly painted nails:
If you’re in a hurry and need to get on with things but you’ve just painted your nails. Simply dip them in a cup of ice cold water to create touch dry nails in an instant.
Nail polish as remover:
Got chipped nails? No polish remover? Simply re-paint the nails with any polish, leave for 30 seconds and then wipe off with tissue. The fresh coat reduces the old coat to a liquid consistency and allows for removal.
Address the effects of photo-ageing and sun damage with IPL (intense pulsed light) rejuvenation treatment. This super-fast and non invasive laser technique will give your skin a new start.
High heel protection:
If you’ve got new shoes and need to wear them all day, rub some antiperspirant stick on the areas which are rubbing your foot and you will gain instant relief.
Soda can curls:
Use fizzy drinks cans as rollers! This old tip is one your grandmother may have employed in the 1960s…it’s a fabulous way of gaining big, bouffant curls. Simply wrap hair around cans and secure with bobby pins…gently heat with a hairdryer to help the curls along but be careful! Those cans get hot quickly!
Laser Pigmentation Removal:
This fantastic treatment can be considered a beauty hack simply because of its unique results. Laser Pigmentation Removal will wipe out those unsightly brown or reddish marks which plague your skin and in very few treatments. Lasers get right to the core of the issue and fast!
