Old School Beauty Tricks That Still Work


Taking care of the way we look  sometimes can be a struggle and that‘s why we look for different types of beauty hacks or tricks to make our lives easier and our beauty routines – faster. We know how to remove redness from the skin, hide imperfections, make different features appear smaller or larger and can find 10 different ways to use a beauty product without ruining it. If  you want even more ideas how to make your life easier, I‘m sharing with you some of the oldest beauty tricks in the book that still work!

The first tip is ideal if you have big pores and you‘re looking for a way to make them appear smaller. Fill the sink or a bowl with cold water and add some ice cubes. Once the water is freezing cold, dunk your face in there and stay for several seconds. This will shrink your pores and will give your face a fully awaken look. Who can stay asleep after such a procedure?

On that note, if you haven‘t slept all night and in the morning you are sleepy and your eyes are puffy, use some Earl Grey tea to smooth your eyes. Dip 2 tea bags in warm water for a few  minutes, put them in the fridge for the same period of time and after that just take them out and apply on eyes. This will immediately reduce the puffiness and give you a more awake look.

If your skin is dehydrated and that‘s making it crack, you can use a natural moisturizer instead of the full of chemical face cream. Just take one avocado, smash it, apply on your clean face for 20 minutes and rinse with water. Your skin will be smooth and soft afterwards and you won‘t have to use your cream to keep it that way.

If you have a lot of dead skin, use sugar to exfoliate your skin. Mix sugar with olive oil or any kind of natural oil for that matter and gently scrub it all over your face. Wash your face afterwards and be amazed by the results. Repeat every week for maximum results and stay away from store-bought products filled with chemicals if you can make something at home for a lower price.

There is an easy way to curl your lashes like a professional if they are really, really straight. Like your hair is being curled with heat, use heat on your lashes for maximum results. Take your blow dryer and heat your curler. Curl your lashes until it‘s hot so they stay in place all night. And just like your hair starts to get used to the curler and becomes curled on its own, your lashes will slowly become curled if you use this trick daily.
