We all love beauty hacks. And why not, they help us achieve that WOW look in a jiffy. We share 6 tricks and tips that will help you look your flawless, radiant best every time you step out.
# To Fight A Bad Hair Day
Bad hair days often show up every once in a while and we absolutely hate them! Trying these tricks helps. If your hair looks like you are just out of the bed or is too frizzy than normal, braiding is a good idea. Braiding goes well with frizzy hair, giving a neat and polished look. In case your hair is too oily, use a dry shampoo or a baby powder. Spray some dry shampoo or sprinkle a bit of baby powder to the root of your hair. These absorb oil, making your hair look fresh again. Additionally, the freshness is retained throughout the day.
# To Get Rid Of Tangles
Tangled hair is annoying when you are in a rush or just too lazy to untangle it. The best way to avoid tangling is following the correct way of drying your hair after shampooing. Do not twist or rub your hair too hard. As hair is the weakest when wet, rubbing hard would damage it from the roots, making the ends fragile and tangled. Use a soft towel or a t-shirt instead, to gently ward off excess water.
If your hair gets tangled even after that, start combing it from the edges, and work your way up the roots. This is easier, less painful, and causes little damage.
# To Cover Up Your Grays
It’s okay if your hairstylist couldn’t fit you in her day’s schedule. A good mascara is all we need. Simply cover up the gray hair by applying mascara to the roots. If you fear that it would melt away, set the temporary color with a coat of hair spray. Voila! You just dyed your hair on your own.
# To Wear Off Puffy Eyes
A long day at work and not-so-sound sleep could cause puffy eyes or eye bags. Used tea bags come as a savior. After soaking the bags and letting them steep in hot water, refrigerate them for two hours. Placing a tea bag on each eye doesn’t just reduce puffiness, but also makes your feel fresh. Sliced cucumbers also have a similar effect.
Splashing cold water on your eyes in the morning reduces the puffiness and makes your skin look bright and fresh.
Concealer also does the trick. Use a yellow base concealer under the eye and prep it up with a foundation cream and compact powder.
# To Solve The Mascara Woes
One of the common problems we all face while applying a mascara is it smudging over the eyelids. You can avoid this by placing a business card or a small piece of paper over your eyelids. Now, that done perfectly, sometimes even a mascara that promises defined lashes tends to clump your lashes together. You can avoid this by gently dabbing some translucent powder on your lashes after applying the mascara, followed by applying another coat.
# To Get Rid Of Waterproof Makeup
Women swear by waterproof makeup. But it is equally hard to get rid of it, as it generally doesn’t wear off even after washing with a gentle soap. Petroleum jelly does the trick, especially for eye makeup. Simply apply a coat of petroleum jelly on your eye makeup and rub off gently using a cotton pad.
Coconut oil also helps in removing makeup, in addition to moisturizing your skin. Both of these do not have any side effects and work best for any kind of makeup.
