Here are some new beauty tips and tricks that you might not have heard about via Gurl. All are easy, inexpensive ways to look and feel your best every day.
Can't get that last bit of lip gloss out of the tube? Stick it in a cup of hot or boiling water for five minutes, which will loosen up anything stuck to the tube so you can get it out easily.
Use cooking spray or a bowl of ice water to help your nails dry super fast (really!).
Make a zit-zapping face mask with aspirin! Take a few tablets and pour a little water on them (a couple teaspoons) to make a paste. Apply and let it sit for ten minutes before washing it off.
You can also use toothpaste as a zit spot treatment (except for the gel ones).
Grab a dryer sheet and rub it over your hair to get rid of frizz and flyaways.
If your hair gets greasy fast, apply a bit of baby powder or baking soda to your scalp to absorb the excess oil.
If your lips are flaky and chapped, use scotch tape to gently remove the flakes.
Eat yogurt or bananas to get rid of bad breath.
To get super smooth feet, just apply Vaseline at bedtime. Make sure you wear socks so the lotion doesn't make a mess and can soak in overnight.
Put a tiny amount of baby powder in your shoes to absorb sweat and odors.
If your skin always gets super shiny at school, you can actually use toilet paper to blot away the shine.
Cheap jewelry, especially rings, can turn your skin green. To avoid this, paint your jewelry with clear nail polish.
Use olive oil and a cotton ball to remove makeup that you just can't get off, and clean your face normally after.
