There are thousands of crazy beauty tips out there that claim to work on whatever problem you have. Problem is, they don't always work successfully and you just end up wasting your time and money. Here, I've compiled a list of crazy beauty tips that actually work. How do I know they work? Well, I've tried them! So here are ten crazy beauty tips that work!
#1. Powder Your Roots
If your hairline starts to look greasy, dig up a big, fluffy makeup brush, and dip it into a pot of loose powder. Tap it once on the back of your hand to remove excess, then dust it over your roots. It mops up oil and blends into your strands, so no one will know you didn't shower!
#2. Spot-Treat Smudges
Dip a cotton swab into eye-makeup remover, and trace it along your lids to erase any slipups or goofs when there's no time to redo your whole look!
#3. Fix a Flushed Face
If you turn red and stay that way after exercising, take an antihistamine like Benadryl when you leave the gym to reduce redness. Works like a charm!
#4. Use Makeup Remover on Stubborn Lipstick
#5. Tame Your Eyebrows with Eye Cream
Pat any kind of rich eye cream over brows to help keep them hydrated and banish those icky white specks that look like dandruff.
#6. Brush on Hair Spray
For the final step of your blow-dry, spray hair spray onto your brush, and run it through your strands from roots to tips. This way, your do isn't so plastered and stiff but still holds volume and shine!
#7. Cure a Cold Sore With Cream
When a cold sore is coming on, dab a bit of thick moisturizer, like Aquaphor, over it to prevent it from getting worse.
#8. Use Toothpaste on a Zit
Use just a pea-size amount. Let it sit for about 15 minutes to absorb the oil so the pimple won't get more clogged, then wash it off!
#9. Use Soap Without Water
You know those fancy bars that are actually too pretty to use? Toss them in your underwear or tee-shirt drawers to make your skin smell extra delicious!
#10. Press a Tea Bag on Splotches
If your skin is sensitive or just looking irritated and puffy for whatever reason, steep a bag of green tea for a minute or two, let it cool down, and bad it over your face. The antioxidants in the tea take down inflammation.
