8 Weird Beauty Tricks That Actually Work

By Aniela / May 20, 2015

There are literally a zillion beauty tricks and tips out there and I'm setting out to try all of them! These 8 weird beauty tricks will completely throw you off, but they work! Okay, that may take me a while, but in the meantime, here are 8 beauty tricks that I KNOW actually work because I've tried them numerous times!

#1. Try a McSteamy

Want that fresh looking, dewy skin? Just stand near a steam source such as a hot shower or take a hot bath. Just 10 minutes of steam will completely renew your face!

#2. Pepto-Bismol

Not just for your tummy anymore, Pept0-Bismol is also great on your face. It contains anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, so putting the pink stuff on your face once a week will minimize the appearance of pores, get rid of dirt, and reduce acne. Leave on for 20 minutes and rinse off!

#3. Un-Bloat Yourself

We all have days where we feel like we ingested an entire whale, and that's okay – it happens! But if you've actually got somewhere to go and have to fit into a tight dress or a pair of skinnies, apple cider vinegar is here to rescue you. Just a mix a tablespoon of ACV with half a glass of water and drink up! The enzymes in the ACV will slow down your gastric juice production which will debloat your belly.

#4. Omega-3 For Your Lashes

Apply flax seed oil directly to your lashes and watch them grow like magic! Flax seed oil has some amazing beautifying properties, and you should definitely take advantage of that. Within just a couple of weeks, you'll see a huge improvement in your lashes!

#5. Fix a Flushed Face


If your face gets super red after a workout and stays that way for quite some time (like mine), take an anti-histamine like Benadryl to reduce that redness. Say bye-bye to old red face!

#6. Even Out Your Skin Tone

Combine sage, peppermint, and witch hazel and apply directly to your skin. The healing properties of all three will even out your skin tone faster than anything else. Combine 4 ounces of witch hazel, 1 teaspoon of sage, and add peppermint leaves. Steep the mixture for 1 to 3 days and apply to your skin.

#7. Blister Proof Your Shoes


Breaking in a new pair of heels can be absolute hell but no worries, there'a fix for that. Just roll deodorant along your toes as well as on your heels. This will keep moisture from forming which causes all that friction.

#8. Get Soft Heels and Elbows


Instead of applying copious amounts of cream or oils to your heels and elbows, try this alternative for a change! First, exfoliate your heels and elbows in the shower. Then, cut a grapefruit in half and rest your elbows and heels in it for about 15 minutes. The acid in the grapefruit will remove those hard to get skin cells, leaving you with silky soft skin.
