The internet is filled with beauty and skincare tips that promise to enhance our attractiveness and save us time.
Although many of these hacks are ineffective, there are a few useful tips that can simplify everyone’s beauty and skincare routines.
Here are 20 effective beauty and skincare techniques that you can try:
- Use micellar water:
When you can’t cleanse your face, micellar water on a reusable cotton cloth can effortlessly remove makeup and grime.
- Refrigerate your skincare products:
Storing moisturizers and serums in the refrigerator adds a touch of luxury to your daily skincare routine.
- Apply foundation with your fingertips:
Skipping expensive brushes and using your fingertips to apply foundation can give a natural, flawless finish.
- Buy versatile products:
Simplify your skincare routine by using products with multiple functions, such as tinted moisturizer and color sticks that can be used for both lips and cheeks.
- Make an inexpensive sugar scrub:
Combine honey, olive oil, and regular cane sugar to create a DIY exfoliating scrub for the body.
- Never skip SPF:
Always use sunscreen to protect your skin from aging and reduce the risk of skin cancers.
- Use hydrating sheet masks while traveling:
Apply a hydrating sheet mask to prevent dehydration and dryness during long flights or car journeys.
- Utilize hydrocolloid patches:
These patches can effectively conceal acne and other imperfections while allowing you to apply additional makeup on top.
- Cut open containers to get the last remnants of expensive products:
Snip off the tip of the container to access the remaining product in tubes.
- Revive dried-out mascara:
Add a few droplets of warm water to a nearly dried-out mascara tube and shake vigorously to extend its life.

Natural light provides the best conditions for applying makeup and ensuring a flawless appearance.
- Use white eyeshadow as a foundation:
Apply a creamy white eyeshadow before vibrant eyeshadow colors to make them stand out.
- Clean makeup brushes with olive oil and dish soap:
Loosen makeup on brushes with olive oil and clean them with dish soap before allowing them to dry completely.
- Use a lazy susan for skincare storage:
Invest in a tiered lazy susan to organize and store your skincare products, saving valuable counter space.
- Repurpose old mascara wands:
Clean and dry old mascara wands to use for eyelash or eyebrow grooming.
- Make lip gloss with eyeshadow pigment and lip moisturizer:
Mix crushed eyeshadow pigment with lip balm to create a custom lip gloss shade.
- Use dry shampoo before hair gets oily:
Apply dry shampoo shortly after shampooing to prevent oily hair and add volume.
- Use soft microfiber cloths for facial hygiene:
Replace rough terrycloth washcloths with soft microfiber cloths for a gentler cleanse.
- Switch to a silicone body massager:
Replace your old loofah with a silicone body scrubber that lasts longer and can be easily disinfected.
