Top 6 Beauty Hacks You Need to Know


It can take years of trial and error to learn the best ways to apply makeup or the best beauty products that work for you. But why wait? This article compiles some of the best beauty hacks you need to know now, that are guaranteed to change your life forever.

1.) SPF is the best anti-aging cream
While anti-aging creams are effective, nothing beats SPF. It’s something you were probably nagged about as a child, to always put on your suncream, even on a cloudy day. This only makes teenagers want to rebel against their parents. However, you shouldn’t be too quick to dismiss it. SPF can protect your skin from cancer, dark age spots, and wrinkles. There are a variety of SPF products that you can buy that are cruelty-free, vegan, and non-comedogenic (won’t clog your pores).

2.) Don’t touch your face
You are often told to clean your face, but in fact, you should also avoid touching your face during the day. Your hands are extremely dirty, and every time you touch your face, you risk creating a minefield of pimples. You might not think that you touch your face that often, but you do it more than you think, for example, resting your hands on your cheek and touching your chin while you think or even speaking on the phone often.

3.) Find makeup that works for you
Don’t just buy any old makeup you can find at your local store. If you can, spend some time researching what kind of skin you have, and what products will work best for you. Speak to experts if possible, because makeup is not always what you think, for example, if you have oily skin, you don’t need to strip the oil, instead you should be counteracting it with more oil. There are also plenty of companies out there, such as Younique, that offer vegan makeup with natural ingredients for sensitive skin.

4.) Use a microfiber hair towel
Microfiber towels are specifically designed for your hair for a reason. It is common practice to flip your hair over, hand dry it with a normal towel, and maybe even wrap it up on your head. Unfortunately, this common practice can damage your hair. Microfibers are much more gentle to your fragile hair, mopping up the excess moisture on your head.

5.) Shower at the end of the day
This is more important if you have an active day, or have exercised. If you work out, don’t skip the shower after. If you have had a particularly busy day, make time for a shower in the evening. Whether you realize it or not, you are likely to have worked up a sweat. In terms of your exercise goals, that’s great. But your skin, not so much. Keeping sticky clothes on is one of the quickest ways to bring on pimples or body acne.

6.) Apply your mascara horizontally
It seems a little contradictory, suggesting to apply your mascara horizontally when the aim of wearing mascara is to make your lashes look longer. However, wiggling your brush horizontally while applying your mascara, is the best and only way to avoid clumpy lashes.You don’t always have to spend hours in the bathroom working on your beauty routines. Try these hacks to make your life easier!
