Beauty tips are an everyday thing you hear about often – by word of mouth, from your parents or grandparents, and more commonly, online. But amidst the horde of readily available tips, what’s genuine and what’s not is a difficult guess. Instead of going through an extensive trial and error process, it’s way more convenient to know for sure what works and what doesn’t. We bring you some very useful but equally weird beauty tips to try. These tips might make you question its authenticity and maybe even cringe a bit – but all of these weird beauty tips are worth a try.
Get rid of Dark Circles
One of the latest beauty tips that are making rounds on the Internet gives you a quick and easy remedy to dark circles. If you keep wondering what would be the best way to conceal dark circles, try this cheap but extremely productive trick. Put red or orange lipstick around the area and blend it properly using your fingers. When you use your concealer afterward, you will be amazed by the results. The red-orange lipstick neutralizes the dark patch of skin and helps you cover up quickly.
Grey Hair Roots
Do you have graying hair roots? Need a quick fix and don’t have enough time to dye? Don’t worry! We have you covered with one of the best beauty tips for graying hair. For instant results, use a q-tip or a small brush and dab it into an eyeshadow that matches your hair color. Apply lightly on the hair roots. This is not a permanent tip but will come in extremely handy in emergencies.
Static Hair or Flyaways
Static hair or flyaways are annoying but are easily manageable. Whether you possess a dryer or not, buy a bunch of dryer sheets. Rub one against your hair and you will be free to carry any hairstyle without flyaways. Beauty tip at its best!
There are two extremely productive ways of having longer as well as fuller eyelashes. First, apply a single-layer coat of your desired mascara. Then take an eyelash brush and rub it against a cotton ball. Use this brush softly on your lashes and repeat the second coat of mascara. You can visibly see the difference. Alternatively, you can use baby powder after each coat of mascara to get better results.
Get Rid of Armpit Odor
Your deodorants may fail you but this trick will not. Cut slices of lemon and rub against your armpits for a while to get rid of the bad odor. The citric acid in the lemon kills common bacteria and has a long-lasting effect against bad odor. A word of caution, though – Don’t try this method right after shaving! You guessed it right! It will sting terribly.
If you are out of hair conditioner or just need a home remedy for deep conditioning – use mayonnaise. Just use it straight out of your refrigerator, apply it to your hair and let it settle for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off well and use a hairdryer to enhance the rejuvenated feel. This deep conditioning beauty tip might make you want to replace your regular conditioner completely.
Best Way to Use Eyeliner
Eyeliners are often difficult to use accurately – they are either flaky, don’t give the desired result, or their dry nature makes it difficult to glide smoothly. If you often end up making a mess while applying eyeliner – this beauty tip is for you. Either hold your eyeliner pencil near a flame for a while till it almost starts to melt. Let it cool down and be amazed to see how you have made an eyeliner gel that glides smoothly. You can also freeze your eyeliner before using it to avoid flaky, broken bits while applying it.
Lip Balm for Chapped Lips
We have often heard about the health benefits of green tea. Here is one more. Green tea bags can act as a rich lip balm to smoothen your chapped lips and to keep them soft. Wet the tea bags in water and squeeze out the excess water. Then press the wet green tea bag against your lips for around 10 minutes. You will be surprised how neat this trick is. For those who need to keep a lip balm handy for recurring flaky lips – take a note!
Underarms are sensitive zones and tend to darken easily due to some reasons. To easily keep this in check and to lighten the skin tone of your armpits, you can use potato juice. You heard it right! Grate some potatoes and rub against your armpits. Potato juice is mild and has lightening effects on the skin. Use continuously for a couple of weeks to notice visible results. If you have a juicer, you can directly extract juice from the potatoes and apply that.
De-pollute Your Hair Using Beer
Beer might leave behind an apparent odor. But other than that, it acts as an amazing conditioner for your hair by removing all kinds of pollutants, chemicals, and dust buildups in your hair. As weird as it might sound, massaging beer to your hair and rinsing it off after letting it sit for five to ten minutes might give you soft, bouncy hair like never before. Apply it to your wet and damp hair right after using shampoo – just like you use your conditioner and get ready to be amazed! These days there are a lot of hair products that are using beer for their effectiveness.
