25 Beauty Hacks to Save You Time and Money
Below are beauty hacks that I personally do. 😊
P.S. Do you have a beauty hack that you love?
Please scroll down to the bottom of this post and leave a comment to share your beauty hack with others!
1. Use Cuticle Cream for Soft Hands
Lots of hand lotions have alcohol that dry out your skin.
Instead, use Burt’s Bee’s cuticle cream for pretty nails and hydrated hands.

2. Sleep on Your Back
Sleeping on your side can cause wrinkles on your face. If you want to look younger than your age, try sleeping on your back.
3. Use Biore Nose Strips
Use a deep cleansing pore strip to remove blackheads. It is cheaper (and faster!) than getting a facial.
4. Use a Silk Pillowcase
Silk pillowcases help to prevent wrinkles!
5. Use John Frieda for Darker Hair
The John Frieda hair treatment works wonders for getting beautiful, brunette hair at home.
P.S. – Check out this YouTube video with before and after results of using John Frieda.
6. Use Hair Lightener for Streaks
Want instant highlights?
Use John Frieda's lightning spray for at-home highlights.
7. Buy Sunblock from the Dollar Tree
The Dollar Tree has GREAT sunblock, and it’s cheap too!
8. Buy Beauty Products from Trader Joe’s
Trader Joe’s has some great serums and skincare products. Check them out!
9. Use Generic Version of Eye Creams from Target and Walmart
Target and Walmart both sell great anti-wrinkle eye creams at affordable prices.
10. Buy Estee Lauder Beauty Set When It Is on Sale
The Estee Lauder Beauty Set goes on sale from time to time.
The Estee Lauder gifts usually include their expensive eye creams and serums for a really good price!
11. Use Neosporin for Dried Out Lips
Are your lips super chapped? If Burt’s Bees isn’t doing the trick, put Neosporin on your lips!
12. Use Aussie Deep Hair Conditioner
Few deep conditioners beat the Olaplex No. 3 deep conditioner, but the Aussie Deep Hair Conditioner Treatment is a good alternative.
13. Braid Your Hair at Night
Want wavy hair? Put your hair in braids at night.
14. Put Your Hair in Space Buns at Night
Want curly hair, but hate using a curling iron? Put your hair in 3-5 space buns at night (use a bobby pin).
When you take out the bobby pins in the morning, your hair will be curly.
15. Let Under Eye Concealer Set for 5 Min
A beauty hack is to put on under eye concealer, get dressed, and then rub it in.
Under-eye concealer works best if you let it set for 5 minutes!
My Favorite Under Eye Concealer (I use color: 110):
16. Look Awake with Highlighter
A little bit of highlighter on the inner corners of your eyes will brighten your entire face and make you look more awake.
17. Add Translucent Powder Over Your Under Eye Concealer
Hate how your under-eye concealer sometimes crinkles after a few hours?
Add translucent powder over the top to prevent under-eye concealer from crinkling.
Everyone swears by the Laura Mercier translucent powder.
17. Define Brows Quickly with an Eyebrow Pencil
You can define your eyebrow pencils with a GREAT eyebrow pencil.
For big defined brows, use Billion Dollar Brows.
For a more natural look, try the Laura Mercier eyebrow pencil in Fair Blonde.
18. Prevent Acne with Noxzema Wipes
I still get acne, even though it has been years since I’ve been a teen with acne!
Acne medicine doesn’t work for me (and it bleaches my sheets at night!), but using the Noxzema wipes every morning (or night) works wonders.
19. Use Crest White Strips
You don’t need to use them often (maybe 2-3 times a year), but Crest White strips do work. Just put them on while you get ready to go out.
20. Do Your Own At-Home Hair Treatment
Want shiny, soft, and smooth hair?
Buy Olaplex No. 3 and put it on your hair for 30 minutes (or more). Your hair will be soft and silky smooth afterward!
21. Use a Nail Buffing Block for Shiny Nails
Want natural-looking nails at home?
Use a nail buffing block. It takes less than 2 minutes, and your nails will look so shiny afterward!
22. Get Super Strong Nails
Want strong nails?
For starters, try getting manicures less often (gel and SNS isn’t the best for you).
Then, start having Collagen every morning. I personally add one scoop of the Orgain Collagen Peptides to my coffee each day.
23. Check Out the Beauty Products from Walmart
Did I have a typo above? Not at all. 😊 Walmart actually has LOTS of cute clothes and affordable beauty products. Check out the beauty products by Equate.
They are the exact same formula as the more expensive stuff, but for about 25% off!
24. Simplify Your Skincare Routine
Confused about which skincare products to use?
Make your life simple. You can just use KOOPE face wash and moisturizer each day, and you are good to go!
Check out my review of KOOPE.
You can save 20% off too! Get 20% off your first purchase of KOOPE online.
25. Do Your Own Hair Gloss at Home
Want shiny hair?
You can do your own hair gloss treatment at home.
