Beauty treatments can be a costly expense, especially when you have reached a certain age in your life when these beauty treatments are necessary. I for one do not have that type of money to be spending it one beauty treatments. Here are Five Beauty Treatment Hacks to help you save money!
- Use cold green tea bags under eyes to prevent dark circles – This is something I have been doing for years, usually to help with a swollen eye. Cold green tea bags can be used on the eye lids for around 15 – 20 minutes to help with puffy eyes and dark circles.
- Use toothpaste as a blemish spot treatment – I remember coming across this hack on social media, to use toothpaste for cold sores and spots I tried it out and darn it actually helped. Toothpaste contains ingredients for zits include baking soda, triclosan, alcohol, sodium pyrosulphate, menthol, fluoride, or hydrogen peroxide.For a more natural route, you can use natural organic toothpastes with fewer harsh chemicals and which also contain tea tree oil, witch hazel, aloe or eucalyptus.
- Use coconut oil as shaving cream – I struggle with stubborn dark hairs, a simple option is to replace your shaving cream with coconut oil this leaves your legs feeling soft.
- Use concealer to create matte lips – a beauty hack I also found on social media, using concealer before applying your lipstick gives it a matte look and it makes your lipstick last longer.
- Use peppermint oil for plumper lips – We all are after plumper full looking lips, but I personally do not want to have lip injections done, use peppermint oil to create a fuller looking lip.There are three steps to this process:
- Create a coarse cinnamon, peppermint oil, and vaseline mixture.
- Apply a little bit of it, and scrub your lips with a toothbrush. Not only does this remove all the dead skin cells and make your lips super soft, it plumps them as well.
- Use peppermint oil with any lip gloss you have.
