A very common thing we all know, but rarely acknowledge is the fact that everything we need to keep our skin glowing, healthy, blemish free, and healthy need not be terribly expensive or insanely hard to come across. Sometimes just by adding a few small things to our regular beauty routine or by switching up a few things, or by maybe doing a couple of things differently. But money and the adverse advertising always make us reach for the latest miracle cream or the amazing product to aid in our quest to that perfect porcelain, spotless face, that will be the envy of everyone else. But stop and think for a moment. Do you really need that uber expensive cream that promises miracles, or maybe that extremely high-end product that promises to keep your lipstick in place? Or would you rather be a bit savvy about the products you use, and make them multitask rather than spending a fortune?
Wouldn’t you like to save a little money while still being flawless?Think about the many things you could do with that extra bit of cash! You could buy that dress you have been eyeing for a long time now. Or maybe you could take a trip to the spa and pamper yourself silly. If the latter entices you and seems like something you would be interested in, then read on, and you might just find that some of these beauty tips are total life savers.
Beauty Tips For Girls :
Most of these tips include things found right in your kitchen, while others use things that are easily accessible. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the top 15 beauty tips for girls you can use to enhance, protect, and nourish that natural beauty of yours.
#1 Grapes, good to eat, great for your skin:
Got a bunch of grapes at hand? Slice a couple of sour grapes in half and rub the part that is cut on freshly cleansed skin. Grapes obviously contain fruit acid, which are amazing natural Exfoliants. They break down and get rid of dead cell buildup to reveal the new and fresh natural skin below!
While sleeping, sometimes fluid tends to retain in our under eyes, causing them to puff up into what we call under eye bags. This inevitably makes you look tired and unhealthy. Not to worry, slice up a few cucumbers and place them on your eyelids. Cucumbers have diuretic properties and therefore help to drain and get rid of all that excess fluid. Got dark circles as well? Place a few cold tea bags on your eyelids. This will help in de-puffing eye as well as lightening dark circles. Don’t have either cucumbers or tea bags? Chill two spoons and place them on your eyelids. Also try elevating your pillow; this will drain out the excess fluid and stop the fluid from retaining under your eyes.
#3 Zap those zits:
Got a zit right before that big event? Just dab some tea tree oil on the pesky little thing. The tea tree oil will kill bacteria, reduce the redness, and shrink the pimple in size. Don’t have any tea tree oil around? Get a little bit of chamomile tea, and grind till it becomes a powder, add some warm water to form a paste. Apply it on the pimple and leave it on for 30 minutes or so. The pimple should have now reduced greatly in size. Is it still quite noticeably obvious? Try dabbing some mouthwash right on top of it. It should be gone in no time.
#4 Be like a dumpling:
We all try to shrink pore sizes, yes, but our pores are what the toxins come out from and from where all the good things go in from. Want to supercharge your facial masks and make them work over time? The next time you apply a mask, do so in a hot bath or shower. Alternatively, you can also steam your face. This will open up your pores and help the mask to penetrate deeper and work more effectively at drawing out toxins while providing nourishment to your skin. For oily skin, try an all natural clay mask, to draw out the entire gunk and balancing the sebum level of your skin. For dry skin, mash up some papaya or avocado and apply it to your face to provide moisture and nourishment to your parched skin. There are also several other things that work wonders on facial skin, such as honey, oatmeal, or just plain yogurt. Want to tone your facial skin? Apply a little beaten egg whites, and watch the magic happen. Apply whatever works best for your skin, but do so only after steaming your face and opening up your pores for all the goodness. You will be rewarded with the most gorgeous skin; that is a guarantee.
#5 Become a bronzed goddess:
Tanning beds are carcinogenic, self tanners are messy and hard to use, and the sun, unfortunately is not available all the time. But not to worry, you can still get that super sexy bronzed look by mixing a teaspoon of cocoa powder with your regular sunscreen or moisturizer, and applying this mixture on your body. It is a very buildable color so you can work with it till you are the shade of bronze that you want to be. As a bonus, you are going to smell absolutely delicious. So you are going to look and smell amazing! Winning!
#6 Yoga isn’t just for your body:
Do some facial yoga. It will help in reducing a double chin and will also help to firm up your jaw line, giving you a more defined, cut appearance. Every morning, tilt up your head and try to kiss the ceiling about a dozen times. Are you going to look stark raving mad while doing it? Yes. But you will also have that fierce jaw line you always wanted.
#7 Get that gorgeous mirror shine hair:
Apply a couple of drops of argon oil to the tips of your hair after shampooing, and you will instantly have smoother, shinier hair. You can do this with coconut oil, almond oil, or even olive oil (though olive oil might give off a strange scent).
#8 Scrub it up well:
Exfoliators are extremely important; they aid in speeding up the skin’s natural renewal process and help to reveal smoother, fresher skin underneath.

#9 Go get those pearly whites:
The whiter your teeth, the better you look. Add a bit of baking soda to your regular toothpaste, this will help get rid of surface stains. You can also try rubbing a banana peel on your teeth for a couple of minutes for about 2 to 3 weeks. Alternatively, you can turn to Ayurveda and do some oil pulling, which means every morning you get up and swish some oil in your mouth for about half an hour before spitting it out and then rinsing your mouth with some hot water. This will also prevent cavities and plaque buildup.
#10 Try oil cleansing:
Instead of using harsh chemical cleaners, use oils such as olive oil or almond oil to cleanse your skin. Rub it in circular motions and then wipe off with a warm wash cloth, this will remove all the makeup and dirt, and you will be left with soft, moisturized, and cleansed skin. Almond oil as well as olive oil is great for skin and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles so it’s always great to use. If you’re always stressed about removing waterproof makeup then use almond or olive oil. These are really effective in removing the toughest waterproof makeup formulas.
