1. Cold Spoon
No one wants under eye bags or dark under eye circles. It turns out that you can deal with this annoying skin issue pretty quickly with the help of a utensil. Yes, a utensil. Simply place a spoon in your freezer and keep it on standby for puffy-eyed days. It’ll help de-puff and refresh your delicate under eye area and you will look well-rested and glowing.
2. BB Cream Before Foundation
Most people think of either using BB cream or foundation but the two work perfectly together particularly if you’re looking for balanced, long-lasting coverage. BB cream has many functions: it can brighten, balance, protect and even out skin tone. It provides light coverage so if you’re looking to build additional coverage and hide blemishes you can layer a foundation over.
3. Use Oil to get Rid of Oil
If you have oily skin you probably want to avoid oil at all costs, however you should rethink that. Oil is great at attracting oil and can help thoroughly cleanse oily skin. Consider cleansing with a facial oil, oil-based cleanser or using natural oils such as coconut oil to cleanse your face.
4. Exercise for better skin
Breaking a sweat can be just as good for your face as it is for your body. Working out revs up your circulation and releases sweat and dirt from your pores. It’s almost like a mini-facial. Just remember to cleanse your face after you hit the gym to avoid buildup..
5. Black Tea For Your Face
Black tea can you give you a boost when you’re feeling tired and it can do the same for your skin! After you brew a cup of tea, cool it off in the refrigerator then use it on oily skin as an astringent. It will make your skin look fresh.
6. Yoghurt For Sunburn
If you spent a little too much time in the sun, you can get easy relief by using yoghurt in your fridge. Apply on a sunburn to help soothe.
7. Honey Sugar Lip Scrub
You can make a super easy scrub with the help of a few things in your pantry. Brown sugar makes a great easy scrub for your lips, just mix it with a little honey and lemon, apply to your skin for a few minutes, then rinse off with warm water or the best cleanser for your skin type. Super easy to make, just try to not eat it.
8. Avocado Mask
Love avocado toast? Well that mash that you love to eat can also be super good on your skin. Take a ripe avocado from your pantry and mash it up and apply to clean skin. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes and the antioxidants and monounsaturated fats will help leave your skin looking radiant and hydrated
9. Sleep on Your Back
Your sleeping position can have an effect on the appearance of your skin. If you sleep on your side or stomach you could cause fine lines to show up. This is because we press our faces into the pillow and over time this action can cause wrinkles. Try your best not to sleep on your side or invest in a silk pillow so that your skin can “glide” at night; meaning your skin won’t adhere to the pillow as much as it would on cotton. Also change your pillowcase at least once a week so oil, sweat and residue don’t mix with your skin.
