Ingenious Tricks to Enhance Your Health and Beauty

Who does n’t want to look better and feel better all the time? I think everyone does, but we get scared thinking about how expensive and time consuming it may be. However the truth is quite the opposite, and to prove it here are 15 easy and simple beauty tips. Perfect for anyone who wants to look good and feel good in simple and cheap ways. When you don’t have the time, or you are caught on the go without your normal products, these tips just might save your day!

Nothing is better than one of these aromatic tubs at the end of a day. Buy Epsom salts in bulk, put some in a container and mix in a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Use this mix in your bath or foot bath after a long day of running around and your feet will be grateful.

If you don't get enough sleep or you simply live a very busy life than you probably have these dark circles under your eyes. Just a tiny bit of orange lipstick (or orangy cream blush) mixed with a concealer of your skin tone will counteract purple darkness under the eyes.

If you have dry and cracked skin on your elbows and feet then this might be the quickest, most effective fix out there. The anti-inflammatory ingredients in diaper rash cream will help hydrate and repair the skin, leaving you smooth and soothed, just a baby.

When you are traveling around you might not always have time to iron your clothes and they will most ly get wrinkled in your bag. Simply ‘iron’ them with a small travel flatiron that you use for your hair.

If you love the smell of your perfume but it fades away too quickly, there is a simple way to make it last longer. Apply some Vaseline to the same place you spray the perfume to fight fragrance fade.

Grey hair can become dull and yellow in the sun and the heat, but you can prevent it with a simple weekly treatment. Mix equal parts of 3% hydrogen peroxide, water and the conditioner you normally use in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on clean moist hair, comb it through with a wide-toothed comb and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before washing.

If you dye your own hair at home then you know how annoying it is to get stains on your hairline and face. To avoid this, apply a thin layer of Vaseline around the hairline, from forehead to the neck. Be careful not to use it on your actual hair and it will prevent dye transfer. When you are done you can easily clean it up with a quick swipe of a washcloth.

Rubbing apple cider vinegar on your hair once a month, and following it up with a cold water rinse, will get rid of product buildup and refresh your hair. Not only does this have a pleasant smell but it will also help keep your hair healthy and shiny.

A simply trick to get long-lasting lip color is to apply powder blush to your lips under a coat of lip balm.

 Olive oil can be used as a natural (and delicious) way to remove long-wear lipstick and lip stains. Dip a Q-tip in oil, it can be the same kind you use for your cooking, and scrub your lips or other places you want to clean.

After you are done with your manicure, dip your wet nails into a bowl of ice cold water for about three minutes. It might be cold, but your nails will come out dry, smooth and glossy.

You can strengthen your nails by cutting a lemon in two, then inserting your fingers inside the pulp so that all nails are fully covered by the lemon. If this feels a bit too funny for you then soaking your nails in a bowl of lemon juice will have a similar effect. Let your nails sit for 10 minutes in the lemons or the juice and voilà, healthy nails.

If you want to hide blemishes and imperfections without looking ‘made up’ then try using a concealer and some sun screen. Not using foundation allows your pores breathe, save it for the days when you really must have that "picture perfect" look. Just be sure to use a sun protecting moisturizer with at least 30 SPF.

If you happen to have a self-tanning mishap simply rub the wedge of half a lemon on the problematic area. Make sure to squeeze a bit of juice out of it and the citric acid in the lemon will remove the stain, rinse and repeat until you're done. 

This might be the simplest, cheapest, and oldest trick in the book for gorgeous white teeth, and yet not too many people use it. Use a small amount of 50/50 ratio mix of water and hydrogen peroxide, swish it around in your mouth for a few seconds, and then spit it out. If you are afraid of swallowing the mix (which you should n’t do!) you can also just dip your toothbrush in it, brush your teeth and then wash your mouth with some water.
