Daily Beauty Hacks

1.     Clean, Tone  and Moisturize

If there’s one thing I learned about skincare from my mom, it is to never skip cleansing my face no matter how sleepy I get in the evenings or even if it means waking up 10 minutes early in the morning. Always start and end your day by cleansing, toning and moisturizing your face and body. Trust me, you’ll thank me later for this.

3.     Lashes On Fleek

If you’re one of those people who is blessed with long and thick eyelashes, congratulations! But if you’re someone who secretly wishes that they would wake up and just effortlessly flutter those eyelashes, then your wish might come true. And no, it’s not falsies, or mascara, or eyelash extensions. It’s castor oil. Use a Q-tip to apply on the eyelashes carefully and leave it on overnight. Do this religiously and you’ll see some great results! See, daily beauty hacks are not just about skincare.

4.     Nail It!

5.     Lip Scrub

Constantly battling dry and chapped lips? Exfoliating and moisturizing is the way to go. Be sure to use a lip scrub at least once a week and apply coconut oil or petroleum jelly daily to keep your lips moisturized.

6.     Teeth

People always talk about skin care, hair care, lip care, etc. when it comes to daily beauty hacks. But what they keep missing out on is how to take care of the teeth. When we were little kids, our moms would always make us brush our teeth at least twice a day. The same rule applies but now, you also have to cut down on sugary foods and drinks and visit your dentist regularly.

7.     Wax It Off

Daily Beauty Hacks by a Teen Who Knows a Thing or Two About BeautyThere are a lot of hair removal procedures that are now very accessible to everyone. But if this sounds a little too costly at the moment, there is always the option to wax those pesky hairs off. Do this regularly depending on how fast your hair grows.

8.     Makeup For Teens

I get it, you want to try that dark, shiny eyeshadow and gorgeous bright red lippie you saw in your mom’s makeup bag. You’ve always dreamed of looking older than you actually are so people will stop treating you like a kid. I get it. But you have the rest of your adult life to be and to look like that person, but we only have 7 years to enjoy as teens, why waste that? Instead, play around with soft, light colors and try to find the best look that suits your skin tone.

Ever heard of facial exercises? Well, as what body workouts do, facial exercises help tone and tighten muscles to better contour and shape your face. Remember: prevention is always better than cure, and these daily beauty hacks will put you right on that road.

10.  Smell Good, Feel Good

Daily Beauty Hacks by a Teen Who Knows a Thing or Two About BeautySmelling good is a form of respect. It says to the other person that you’ve taken the time to be presentable. Always make it a point to carry a small spray-on perfume in your bag.

11.  Cheapest Beauty Tool

Would you believe me if I tell you that the best and cheapest beauty tool out there is water? That’s right! Aside from giving you radiant and glowing skin, drinking at least 2 liters of water daily helps flush out toxins and improve your overall complexion.

12.  Eat Healthier

Skip the early morning mocha frappe and late night runs in your nearest fast food restaurant. Instead, try to make your own smoothie or green salad at home whenever you need to snack. I’m sure you’re wondering what your frappe habit has to do with these daily beauty hacks, but by cutting out junk food, not only do you lead a healthier life, but your skin shows as well.

Daily Beauty Hacks by a Teen Who Knows a Thing or Two About BeautyIt is always a battle between Netflix and Ab workout at the gym. If you find it hard to drag yourself out the door and into the fitness club, think of your next family trip or vacation as a motivation that will require you to wear a cute dress. Who does not want to slay it?

14.  Sleeping Beauty

One way to look at your bedtime curfew is to consider it a part of your beauty ritual. People don’t call it “beauty rest” without a reason, don’t you think? Finish all your homework after class and refrain from pulling an unnecessary all-nighter and try to get some “beauty rest” at least 8 hours a day.

15.  Top Beauty Secret

You’ve probably heard this a thousand times but I’ll keep on saying it until you finally embrace it— confidence is key and if the finest daily beauty hacks. You’ll never meet a single person in your life who has it all. But what makes the difference is that they’re fully confident about themselves and that’s just what matters after all.
