Our 5 Favorite Beauty Hacks
We like to keep our beauty routine as easy and stress-free as possible. That’s why we made a list of some our favorite beauty hacks – because looking great shouldn’t feel like a hassle!
I woke up like this
Waking up in the morning to tangles and flyaway hairs is no fun – and having to spend time detangling is even worse. To avoid crazy bedhead, we recommend sleeping on a silk pillowcase. Unlike cotton, silk doesn’t create friction that leaves hair follicles irritated and damaged as you toss and turn. Silk is also less absorbent than most materials which means hair can maintain its moisture in the morning.
We mean business
We know a lot of people try to achieve the perfect eyeliner look by pulling the corners of their eyelids straight. We hate to be the bearers of bad news but stretching the eyes can actually cause eyeliner to become bumpy and uneven when the skin bounces back into place.
Our pro-tip? Use a business card. The edges of the card can guide your hand and keep your liner straight, just keep extra careful not to poke yourself! We even recommend using a business card when applying mascara to avoid marking the upper eyelid as you brush your mascara through – just place the card behind the lashes and apply mascara as you normally would!
T-shirts > Towels
We know stepping out of the shower with a towel pyramid on your head is a classic look, but the grooves of a regular towel can strip away moisture leaving hair dried out and frizzy. Since a T-shirt doesn’t have rough grooves, it can absorb excess water and slide smoothly over the hair instead of roughing it up. If you don’t want to settle for an old t-shirt, our next best suggestion is buying a microfiber towel.
Fake it ‘til you make it
During the winter months, the sun may not be out as often as we’d like to give us that lovely, vitamin D glow. On top of this, the cold, dry air can leave skin dehydrated and rough. You can easily fake summertime skin by mixing your favorite face oil into a body butter and throwing in a tiny bit of highlighter in!
Three for one
When in a pinch, triple up! Our Rosewater Facial Mist is a great multi-purpose beauty staple for those who often find themselves in a rush. Our mist can be used to not only hydrate and refresh skin, but as a setting spray for makeup, a body mist, and here’s the hack – it can be even used on the scalp and hair to add softness and shine!
