It's Not Too Late: Health and Beauty Hacks To Try At Any Age

Monday, January 02, 2017

No matter what age you are, there is always time to try something new. There are many health and beauty trends that you might have missed out on the first time around. But you can still try them and make them work for you. Here are a few things that every woman needs to be trying out.

Dental Hacks

One of the key things for looking good is to have a smile and teeth that you are happy with. There are many things that you can do to improve the look of your teeth, though. Have you ever thought about whitening your teeth with a banana peel? Well, it is totally a thing. There are tutorials and videos on YouTube if you’re not sure how to go about it, but it does actually work. You could also try something like ‘invisible’ braces as you get older. They can help to straighten out crooked teeth, or teeth that have moved after having braces before. But the best part is that you can hardly tell that you are wearing them. 

Use a Spoon in Your Makeup Routine

If you don’t currently have a teaspoon in your makeup bag, then it is time to get one in there! Believe it or not, a spoon can be used for a multitude of things when you apply your makeup. First of all, you can use it when applying eyeliner. You can use the handle as a guide for a straight line, especially at the edges. Second of all, you can use the curved edge of the spoon for applying winged liner. It can be hard to get it just as you want it, can’t it? But using something to create a template will really help. You can also hold a spoon onto your eyelid as you apply mascara. Then if you slip it, it goes onto the spoon and not your eyelid; winning!

Use White Eyeliner

White eyeliner had it’s day back in the eighties and nineties. But it is making a comeback these days. It can be used to make your eyes look brighter and less tired. Applying some white eyeliner in the corner of your eyes can give your eyes an instant bright look. Using white eyeliner just under your bottom lash line can also help to give your eyes a bright and fresh look. You can also apply white eyeliner on top of the whole of your eyelid. Then when you are applying your eyeshadow, it will give your eyes such a bright burst of color as it will be applied into right white, rather than your skin tone.

Use Petroleum Jelly

If you like to have your makeup give you a dewy look, then petroleum jelly needs to be your best friend. You can use it to highlight on your cheekbones, as well as use on your eyelids to help to apply your eyeshadow. On days where you aren’t going to be using much makeup, you can apply it to your eyelashes too. Because who needs mascara every day?
