01. An easy way to de-puff your eyes
Need a quick way to de-puff your eyes after a nice long afternoon nap? Grab some spoons from your kitchen drawer, dip it in some cucumber juice (reduces puffiness) and put in the refrigerator. Place the bulged out part of the spoon under your eyes for a couple of minutes. Follow up with an under-eye gel infused with caffeine for best results!
02. Facial steamer for glowing skin
Due to social distancing, TikTokers sharted switching makeup tricks for skincare hacks. One such hack involves the use of a facial steamer to add glow to the skin. Mix a little bit of rose water, witch hazel toner and tea tree essential oil in steamer water and pamper your skin for a couple of minutes for an instant glow!
03. An effective DIY toner
Need to DIY an effective toner that mattifies oily skin and calms it at the same time? TikTokers love the blend of apple cider vinegar, water and lavender essential oil for it. ACV can help prevent acne as well and lavender is a known anti-inflammatory agent that reduces redness and soothes irritated skin.
PS If you’re not big on DIYs, you can also opt for the Lakme Absolute Pore Fix Toner for even tone and visibly poreless skin or the Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist for intense hydration and improved skin elasticity.
04. Tea Bags for relief from cystic acne
Cystic acne is troublesome in more ways than one. Apart from being painful, they make your skin look red and inflamed. One way to tone down the redness and provide some relief is by using cold tea bags. Dip some chamomile or peppermint tea bags in water and put them in the refrigerator. Once cold, them on the inflammation for instant relief!
05. Bandaids as zit stickers
Do you know what your favourite pimple patches and zit stickers are made of? They are coated with a layer of hydrocolloid, which is used in most bandages for wound healing! Given how you can too easily cut off round patches of stickers from a bandaid, they become an easy hack for healing pus-filled pimples in an emergency!
