  Photo by cottonbro studio on Pexels Thick hair comes with its fair share of challenges, especially when it's time to look for the right hair accessory that not only conforms to the width of the strands, but also maintains its durability. For those with luscious locks, the struggle to find a reliable and comfortable hair tie is real. Read on to discover why scrunchies are not just a fashion statement but a practical and effective solution for those with thick hair.  Gentle Hold One of the primary concerns for those with thick hair is the likeliness of damage and breakage caused by hair ties that are either too thin or too tight.

Top At Home Beauty Hacks and Tips

 


You can easily upgrade your lifestyle in a range of inexpensive ways. Some of the simpler and most natural products can provide wonders with your beauty regimen. Many common items in your home that you use daily can offer a variety of benefits to achieving beautiful hair and skin. Read on to discover some of the top at home beauty hacks and tips.

Vaseline on Eyebrows

This lifestyle hack is ideal when you want to enhance the look of your eyebrows. If some of the tiny hairs have grown back and you don't have time to obtain an arch to define your look, simply use a spoolie brush to shape your brows. Then, apply a dime-sized amount of Vaseline or an equivalent product to seal the look. It'll last throughout the entire day.


Mixture of Lipstick Colors

Here's a unique beauty hack to tone down vibrant lipstick colors. Let's say, you want to create a more natural look with your makeup without drawing too much attention to your lips. You can actually take a vibrant color such as bright red and mix it with a neutral, skin tone color. Apply the skin tone lip color to the outer portion of your lips. Then, apply the brighter color to the inner portion. Blend together to achieve a more inconspicuous look.


Combating Dry Hair

Natural remedies using coconut oil are among the most popular beauty hacks for hair. Use 100% coconut oil. You can find it at any supermarket or grocery store. Apply a modest amount of the oil to your hair, starting with the ends and working your way up. Leave the coconut oil on for about 10 to 15 minutes and rinse thoroughly. Afterwards, shampoo and condition your hair as usual. 


Combating Dry Feet

Having dry feet is a condition that nearly everyone experiences from time to time. In many cases, regular lotion doesn't do the trick. You need something that provides an extra layer of moisture to your skin. Try this natural remedy. Using a bowl, mix four to five tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with two teaspoons of Vaseline. Soak your feet in the mixture for about 10 minutes. Cover your feet with socks and leave on overnight. You'll be amazed with the results.


Facial Remedy

A simple egg offers so many benefits for the skin. It's rich in vitamins B and D. Egg whites can provide the essential moisture that you need for healthy skin. They also help to tighten pores and reduce blackheads. Crack an egg in a bowl and remove the egg yolk. Using only the egg whites, massage the mixture to your skin in a circular motion. Leave it on your skin for 10 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
