For moisturizing sunscreen
Protecting your skin from the sun is just as important as treating acne. Sunscreen helps prevent premature aging and cancer, but it can be hard to apply evenly, especially if you’re wearing makeup. To help blend in your SPF product, add a drop of foundation to your sunscreen and blend together until there are no streaks left.
Make a super-hydrating mask by mixing honey or avocado
Make a super-hydrating mask by mixing honey or avocado with 3-4 drops of jojoba oil. (This is another great DIY for your skin, but it also makes your mouth water.) Mix the two ingredients together until they form a paste and then apply it to your face using a toothbrush. Leave on for 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water, patting dry and applying moisturizer. Repeat once per week as needed!
- If you have crinkles around your eyes
If you have crinkles around your eyes, lay a cold spoon under them (or a chilled teabag) to reduce swelling.
Place the spoon or teabag under your eyes for about five minutes before bedtime. Do this every night for best results! You’ll look more awake and refreshed when you wake up in the morning.
- If the veins in your hands are showing too much
If the veins in your hands are showing too much, use self-tanner under your nails to tone it down.
If you hate the way the veins in your hands look and want a more natural look, there’s an easy way of hiding them. Self-tanner can be used on top of or underneath the nail polish line and will give a nice glow to it. Apply it with either a concealer brush or toothpick and then blend out any excess pigment with a Q-tip dipped into some water (or just use soap and water). Try using only one thin coat of color as well; this should help keep any redness from showing through if you have darker skin tone like myself! Use just enough product so that it covers all traces without being too thickly applied!
- Use highlighter not just for cheekbones
You can use highlighter on your eyelids and everything else, but here are just a few places you may not have thought about:
Bring light to the inside corners of your eyes.
Highlight the area between your nose and upper lip for a lifted look.
Add luminosity to the apples of your cheeks for a more youthful appearance (and if you already have that tanned glow going on from summer, try it under foundation).
If you want an even bigger head-to-toe glow, apply highlighter to areas like the inner thighs, collarbone and chest!
- To remove eye makeup without irritating skin, use cooking oil.
Use a cotton swab dipped in olive oil, coconut oil or avocado oil to remove eye makeup. The oils will dissolve the eyeshadow while the warm washcloth helps wipe it away.
If you have really waterproof eyeliner on (like me), use an eye makeup remover to get rid of it. If you don’t have any, use a Q-tip dipped in warm water instead and gently wipe away any leftover product from under your eyes. Then continue with step 5 for the rest of your face!
- Use olive oil as a cuticle softener
Olive oil is also an excellent way to soften your cuticles, especially if you’re prone to nail biting. After washing and drying your hands, massage a few drops of olive oil into the cuticle area of each finger. Put on a pair of socks, then go to sleep! When you wake up in the morning and take off the socks, your nails will feel much softer, and perhaps even look healthier than they did before you started this routine. You can also apply a small amount of olive oil directly onto your nails at bedtime—it will help them grow faster and stronger!
