Little Known Beauty Tricks for Everyday Life

For many women, the struggle to stay on top of their health, diet and overall lifestyle is an issue that affects their everyday life. Of course, the well-known ways to keep your appearance up don’t need any explanation, but there are countless things women can do each day to help their appearance from their heads to the bottom of their feet. There are also things that can be done as a convenience that will boggle your mind. What are some of the best yet little known beauty tips that you can do each day that will make you look and feel beautiful?

Bring the Milk into the Bathroom

Milk isn’t just for your cereal or coffee anymore or to be consumed with a big piece of chocolate cake, it can also be used as a cleanser and face wash. Certain creams and gels you use to wash your face before bed can dry your skin which can lead to ageing prematurely. There have been remedies used for years involving milk and honey. Take a cotton round and dip it into the milk and then apply a little honey before putting on your face, it will lead to amazing results for your skin. Be sure to wash it all off after!

Using Vinegar for Shiny Hair

For this little trick you’ll need to invade your kitchen cabinets. Vinegar really works wonders and can amp up your dull hair. Basically vinegar helps close the hair cuticles, which helps reflect light.

Any type of vinegar will do, but the best kind would be apple cider vinegar, which sold in any grocery store. Apply a vinegar directly to your wet hair,  leave in for a few minutes, and then rinse out thoroughly. If you do this for a few weeks, you’ll see fantastic results.

A Trick to Remove Nail Polish Remover

This isn’t one of those over the top things you can do to improve your health, rather it is simply something you can do as a convenience. If you ran out of nail polish remover and don’t feel like going to the store, all you need to do is apply clear nail polish and wipe it off. This should work just like nail polish remover and get rid of the cracked or chopped polish already on your nails.

Hydrogen Peroxide Facial Toner

This is an all natural simple way to get healthy skin. Just like it cleans cuts and wounds and prevents infections, it clears excess oil, dirt and make up. Moreover, it can actually prevent and heal acne! And the best part is its only water and oxygen, no chemicals no residues – its pure and simple. For oily skin use it once a day and  for normal to dry skin use it about 2-3 times a week.

Get Rid of the Bags

One of the most tragic things for many women is getting bags under their eyes. These can develop for many reasons, but it is one of the easiest problems that you can correct. If you use an eye cream to hydrate the area below your eyes, this can prevent the bags from forming and puffiness from developing.

Of course, another basic way to remove bags from under your eyes is to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water. If you had an extremely salty dinner the night before or went to bed crying, the salt can cause water to move towards your face and collect under your eyes. The more water you drink, the likelier it is for you to push the excess salt out of your system. To avoid bags from developing, you should also look to avoid drinks like alcohol and coffee.

When you see women in the movies with cucumber slices on their eyes, you may think it is all for show, but in fact; it is used to help prevent bags from developing. As long as the vegetable is nice and cold, the temperature works to soothe the area. If you don’t have any cucumbers in your fridge, one thing you can use as a replacement is teabags, especially chamomile. Just wet the teabags and put them in the refrigerator or freezer and it will have the same effect. Even better, use a peppermint or lemon tea and you will also get an aromatherapy type result.
