With all the tips, tricks, and advice out there, finding the right beauty routine can be overwhelming.
Furthermore, beyond the skincare and cosmetic aisles, there’s a whole slew of at-home remedies, further complicating our quest for effortless glam. So, do any of our friend’s cousin’s mom’s grandma’s wacky tricks actually work?
We found seven old-fashioned beauty remedies that really do the trick
Apple Cider Vinegar: Having a " fat day?" 4 ounces of water and 1 tablespoon of cider vinegar and drink up! This mixture will slow down your enzymes to ease digestion, sucking your bloat right from your stomach.
Blow Dry Your Eyelash Curler: Want your peepers to make a lasting impression? Blast hot air on your curler for five seconds — be sure to check the metal’s heat by touching it with your finger — then curl eyelashes as you normally would.
Hemorrhoid Cream: Behind every celebrity makeup artist is a hemorrhoid cream – let us explain. This “miracle” cream not only smoothes wrinkles, but can reduce puffy bags under your eyes in a flash.
Black Tea Bath: Catch a little too much sun? Fill a bath with loads of black tea to soothe the pain and speed up the healing process.
Jell-O Lipstick: Looking for a cheap alternative to expensive lipsticks? Combine red Jell-O powder in a bowl with a little water, and use a Q-Tip to apply the solution like lipstick.
Frozen Eyeliner: If you have a difficult pencil that is crumbly or close to its last breath, place it in the freezer for 12 minutes. This will toughen it up and allow you to apply more smoothly.
Shave With Conditioner: If you run out of shaving cream, use conditioner as a shaving gel. It will make your legs seductively silky and is a great solution to sensitive or easily-irritated skin.:
