Looking your best doesn’t have to take hours. Try these quick and easy solutions for your common beauty problems.
Gum Numbing Gel for Pain-Free Plucking
This off-label use of gum numbing gel actually works well to prepare your eyebrows for painful plucking. Rub onto desired area and wait 20 seconds for the gel to take effect. Once numbed, pluck away!
Baby Shampoo for Easy Makeup Removal
There’s no excuse for going to bed with your makeup on. If other makeup removers irritate your skin or are too expensive, baby shampoo is a good alternative. It contains lauric acid, derived from coconut oil, which is non-toxic, making it safe for eye-makeup removal. Simply pour some baby shampoo onto a cotton ball, tissue or wash towel and wipe away your makeup for a clear complexion.
Coffee Grounds and Olive Oil for a Glowing Complexion
Start your morning off with a coffee and olive oil facial. Create a paste by mixing together coffee grounds and olive oil. Gently massage into face and wipe away after 30 seconds. The coffee has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties while the olive oil acts as a moisturizer to keep your skin bright and soft.
Raw Sugar and Honey for Soft Lips
Moisturize chapped lips the natural way. In your palm, mix a drop of honey with a bit of raw sugar. Scrub on lips for 10 seconds. Wipe away with a warm towel. Honey is a great natural moisturizer while sugar, unlike salt, will exfoliate without drying out your skin.
