All my makeup addicts out there and my beauty gurus, too, could you please raise your hand?? Aight, I see you! This one is for you. I made this because I care about my time and I care about my money and I want to pass down those words of wisdom to all my makeupholics and beauty hack rebels in the house! And if you’re a wise one, you better go ahead and scroll down!
1. Don’t give up on your broken powder based products
How many times did you break your brand new face bronzer, highlighter, powder, eyeshadow?…should I go on? And how many times were you left sobbing after they ended up literally exploding in your handbag and you were left with pigment covered bag contents in the shade of Moonlight? Well, not on my watch! All you need is a bottle of rubbing alcohol that you could buy from your nearest pharmacy. Rubbing alcohol is a clear and inexpensive liquid, as well. After that all you need to do is get a spoon or even better, a dropper. Add a decent amount to either of them and then just pour it into your powdery mess and let the alcohol sink. Then, let your product sit for approximately 10-15 minutes. You can smooth your product out with a knife mid-dry phase. Yep, that’s it. You’re done.
2. Chapped lips? no problem
Run to the kitchen, now! What you’ll need: a clean container, honey, olive oil and sugar. Mix all your ingredients together and congratulations! Look what you’ve created you miracle child you! You now have a perfect, natural scrub at hand any time you need it. Just dab your finger into the mixture and then rub that magic onto your lips for instantly smooth like a baby’s tooshie lips! Just don’t forget to moisturize your lips afterwards, that’s a must!
3. Don’t cry if you don’t have the ingredients in no. 2
Okay, so you’re some kind of hooligan who doesn’t have sugar and honey at home, fine by me! You could still exfoliate your lips using your toothbrush while brushing your teeth. Here’s how it goes; you go for your normal brushing routine, alright? You place a swirl of that Signal goodness onto your toothbrush and then you add a little water before you start brushing your teeth. While at it, brush your lips, too. Don’t go too hard though or else you’ll cut your lip. That’s literally it yeah.
4. Say goodbye to after shaving bumps!
So, your arms and legs are tired of all that last minute shaving that you end up doing more often than you’d like. That’s alright, not entirely, but at least for now, here’s what you can do to get rid of that skin irritation. Go make black tea! Yep! You heard it, go fix yourself a cup of black tea and add some vinegar to it. Afterwards, take that teabag out and rub it onto the irritated area. You’re welcome, sister.
5. Now you have a dry ass mascara and no cash to buy yourself a new one
This one’s incredibly easy, especially for those who wear contact lenses. Simply, just add some lens solution to your mascara tube then shake it really well and you’re all set, sugar!
6. Farewell to rusty silver rings/jewellery
Coca Cola was created for a much greater purpose than drinking, it was created for silverware cleaning! Don’t believe me? try it! All you need is a glass container (preferably) and a bottle of coke. Pour a generous amount of the drink into the container and then place your rusty silver ring in it. Leave it in there for an hour and voila! Your ring is shinier than it’s ever been!
7. Numb the pain away
Does tweezing your eyebrows piss you off as hell because of all the times you accidentally pick your skin instead?! Well, child, I feel ya! Now forget all that irritation because I have the solution for you: ICE CUBES ALL THE WAY! Just gently rub an ice cube on the area you’re about to use your tweezers on and experience the beautiful numbness that follows. Tweeze away your troubles and never pick your little hairs before numbing the area with an ice cube first! Makes all the difference.
8. Get celebrity like flawless looking legs NOW
Yes yes, I used to go nuts for those Kate Beckinsale legs, too! I mean, look at how smooth they are! There are great airbrush products out there that actually achieve that same result, like Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs, but they’re all PRETTY pricy! I got my last one for 500 L.E. and I’ve been crying since! But you don’t have to go through the same mistakes I’ve made because now you can make your own leg foundation at home and it’s a piece of cake! All you need is a container, body lotion and concealer/foundation. I swear to God, that IS IT. Mix the two together and then smooth the mixture onto those legs of yours, let dry for twenty minutes before you put on your clothes! Enjoy!
9. Stop buying makeup removers
Instead of wasting your money on expensive makeup removing products, invest in a bottle of good ol’ coconut oil. First off, coconut oil wipes off all your makeup with a swipe no matter how heavy your makeup is, second, coconut oil doesn’t irritate your skin or cause redness while removing your makeup, third, coconut oil will leave your skin moisturized so, you won’t have to use a face cream afterwards unlike other makeup removing products.
10. Dry your nails faster
Do you seriously have to run but you’re afraid of ruining your oh so precious freshly painted nails? no worries. Just dip your nails into a bowl filled with cold water (Yes, like cold cold) and leave them in for a while. They’ll dry way faster this way!
Capiche?? You got this!

Rose Water is a great alternative for toners that tend to be extremely harsh by using alcohol and chemicals on your skin. Not only does it soothe the skin, but it is also effective due to its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory components. It helps tone out your skin palette as well as moisturizes it. For those of you suffering from big pores, Rose Water is the solution for you.

Since Rose Water is anti-inflammatory, it’s super healthy for your skin because it keeps it supple and gives it all the health benefits you need. Draw a bath and add rose water into it. To spike it up a notch, add rose essential oil or whichever you prefer and add rose quartz into the bath for a full pampering session! If it’s that time of the month, there’s nothing better than a Rose Water bath to soothe your pain and allow you to relax.
Rose water is rich in many things which is why it’s important to use it every day. Not only could you do DIY’s with it, but you could also use it for therapeutic reasons. Aroma therapy is a powerful way to meditate and get your thoughts straight. Purchase an affordable diffuser and start diffusing rose, it’ll relax and soothe you instantly as soon as you get a whiff of it.

Must Know Coconut Beauty Hacks
Coconut has been known to be a girl’s best friend for all its beneficial reasons! Not only could you use it for cooking, but you could also use it for several beauty hacks! You’ll be thanking us by the end of the article because once you start incorporating it to your day to day life, especially in winter, you’ll see instant changes!
You read right! Coconut is amazing to add into deodorants, especially DIY ones. Coconut helps in keeping things moisturized and avoid getting irritation in the armpits, specifically after shaving! You could either only use coconut oil if you’re looking for a deodorant without odor or could add your favorite essential oil to spike it up a bit! Options for fresh scents are lavender and maybe even lemon! Yumm! All you need for making your home made deodorant is coconut oil (Organic or oil), 2 table spoons of corn starch, 1 tablespoon of baking soda, and the essential oil of your choice!
As women, our skin tends to get super dry and ends up cracking in winter. On normal days, you might tend to use soap detergent for washing the dishes a lot too. Which is why, you are in deep need of keeping your hands and cuticles especially moisturized! Massage your hands at least two times a day with organic or non organic coconut, it helps eliminate dryness and also is a great way of strengthening and growing your nails as well!
You have no idea how coconut does wonders for hair, especially long dry hair! Do it yourself and add coconut in your hair masks however you please! I promise you’re hair will be super silky and especially healthy. For better results, mi the fantastic hair duo, castor oil and coconut oil. Castor oil is known for helping the hair grow, but due to its thickness, it’s best if both coconut and castor are mixed. Let your hair mask seep in for as long as you want then wash and go on with your usual shower routine!
The best way you could and should be using coconut oil is for oil pulling. Oil pulling is the act of putting a spoonful of coconut oil and then swishing it in your mouth for about 15mins or less for at least twice a day. It’s super important because it helps kill bacteria and germs in your mouth, great for overall oral health, breath, and most importantly if used consistently, will help whiten your teeth!
Say No to Shaving Cream
Rather than spend a ton of cash each month on shaving cream, go for a better alternative! Coconut oil is extremely moisturizing which is why if you’re shaving, prompt for coconut oil. Organic coconut oil especially will get the job done! It’s cheaper, easy to attain, and super healthy for the skin!
Make up Remover
Personally, I prefer using coconut oil as a make up remover rather than super expensive make up wipes. For one, it’s my go to because coconut oil is super nutritious for the face, especially after a harsh day of having make up on your face! Make up remover is too expensive, which is why a cheaper, healthier, and easier alternative is coconut oil! Some people aren’t fond of putting coconut oil on the face because it supposedly blocks pores, while its quite the opposite, coconut is the least thick oil out there which is why its super safe for the face. All you need to do is cleanse thoroughly afterwards for clean pores!
Our lips are the least part of the body that we tend to take care of. Even if they’re not burning or itching you from dehydration and dryness, it’s an essential part of a girls routine! Moisturize your lips as much as you can, especially in harsh extreme weathers, whether it be summer or winter. You could use coconut oil as the best go to lip moisturizer! If you’re looking for a scent, feel free to add essential oil such as mint, rose, or lemon even!
And there you have it, here are your cool healthy budget free alternatives for using coconut oil! All you have to do is purchase it once and voila, use as you please for basically anything! Coconut truly is a girl’s best friend, which is why it’s super important to have it within reach or even in your bag! Try these cool hacks and let us know, do you enjoy having coconut oil as your go-to?
