Beauty Hacks To Save You Time And Money!
From surprising spot cures to insider manicure tricks, read our money-saving shortcuts you never knew existed...
1. Sudocrem For Spots.
Got a nasty outbreak or a pesky zit you just can't shift? Sudocreme's enriching formula works to combat redness and heals dry or blemished skin. Plus, if you catch a spot early enough the soothing cream can even stop it appearing altogether. The next time you pass the baby aisle in Asda, remember it's worth a visit!
2. Spray Your Grips.
Do you spend hours creating a stunning updo only for it to fall out because your kirby grips just won't stay put! Avoid slippy pins by laying them out on a piece of kitchen roll and spraying them with hairspray before sliding them into your hair. The stickiness means they're much less likely to move.
3. Fight The Frizz (Without Any Products).
No matter how much money you spend on de-frizzing products, if you dry problem hair with a towel, you could be preventing yourself from achieving the sleek locks you want. Why? Because rough towels disturb your strands. Try using a t-shirt for a few weeks instead and see the difference it makes.
4. Swap Shave Gel For Conditioner.
Got a gorgeous smelling conditioner you just can't get enough of? Why not smother it over your legs the next time you're in the shower for a luxurious shave. The moisturising lotion will slide easily through your razor resulting in no stubble, super-soft skin with a totally amazing scent.
5. Use Talc Post-Shave.
Now you've got silky smooth legs you'll want to avoid a rash so spend a pound on a bottle of talcum powder and lightly dust your pins post-shave. It'll take away any burning sensation and sooth sensitivity.
6. Vaseline As A Barrier.
Love dramatic nails? The next time you get creative with your dark polishes at home, slide Vaseline around your cuticles. The oily balm prevents your varnish from smudging and staining the skin plus it'll leave your fingers as soft as if you'd been for an indulgent manicure after all.
7. White = Bright.
When it comes to colour-popping nails, the best way to create the brightest talons is to paint a white base coat underneath your polish - especially if you're going neon. Simply slide on one coat before covering it with your favourite dazzling shade and voila!
