How many of us consult Youtube tutorials or women’s magazines for beauty tips? These things usually offer the traditional tips that everyone has heard of. You know, sleep with a satin pillow to get rid of split ends – that kind of thing. Well, it turns out, the best beauty tips may be a little more…unconventional. Check out six bizarre beauty tips that actually work!
1. Jello as Lip Stain
Want the perfect lip color that won’t fade or run? Look no further than jello! Wait…jello? Yes, jello. Get a packet of red jello (or whatever color you want, actually) and pour the powder mix into a small cup. Take a dampened q-tip, dip it into the powder, and then gently massage it onto your lips. You’ll have a lip stain that lasts all day!
2. Baking Soda for Self-Tanner Streaks
Everyone who uses self tanner knows how easy it is to have a “tanner disaster.” If your tanner has come out blotchy or streaky, use baking soda to even it out. Mix baking soda with warm water until it forms a paste. Use that paste to scrub away the uneven areas of tanner until it all looks perfect.
3. Dryer Sheets for Static In Hair
This one may seem totally crazy, but hear us out: dryer sheets can resolve static in your hair. When your hair has gone from prim and polished to totally unruly, grab a dryer sheet and gently wipe it from the root all the way down the shaft of the hair to the ends. It will tame the flyaways and give your hair a sleek finish.
4. Raw Potato to Fade Scars
…huh? This is another one that sounds crazy, but it totally works. If you have unsightly scars that you’ve been trying to get rid of for years, potatoes could actually be the answer. This is because potatoes actually have a bleaching property that can resolve discoloration. Mash up a raw potato until it forms a paste or thick goop. Massage into the scar that you are trying to fade, and allow it to sit for five minutes. DO this each day for several weeks and your scars will be significantly reduced.
5. Whiten Teeth With Crunchy Vegetables
It probably sounds silly, but eating crunchy vegetables can actually help remove stains from your teeth. When it comes to having healthy teeth, it also doesn’t hurt that you’re eating vegetables instead of candy, am I right?
6. Flour for Greasy Hair
You know those in-between shampooing days where your hair is super greasy? You don’t want to wash it too often and strip the hair of its natural oils, but you also don’t want to walk around with greasy, stringy hairs. What you can do is sprinkle some flour throughout your hair to absorb excess oil!
