During these challenging inflationary times getting more out of the products you have makes perfect sense. We have researched the top beauty hacks that will help you this spring.

Create your own DIY tinted sunscreen

This time of year wearing sunscreen is critical. Most sunscreens are clear or have traces of white in them so by adding some of your liquid foundation you can combine two beauty steps into one. First, place a dollop (the amount you typically use for your liquid concealer) on a clean plate. Now add 3-4 drops or pumps of your concealer and mix the two with a mixing tool or your finger. Your summer/spring fountain should be darker than winter/fall so this will help to t take the white pasty look out of the tinted sunscreen mixture. Once mixed, apply as you do your foundation. If you need more coverage you can use concealer on key spots. If you want to try to make a tinted sunscreen from scratch the kidsactivitiesblog gives your the recipe and steps. Note: You can also do this with your daily moisturizer as well.

Refresh clumpy mascara

If your like me, you have reached for your mascara only to find that it’s clumpy or dried out. Be sure to check the code date or simply smell your mascara before you consider rejuvenating it. Old mascara may contain germs and bacteria which can cause pink eye, styes or conjunctivitis.  If your mascara is fresh and safe then you can bring it back to life. You can prolong your mascara by following three simple steps. 1. Add 2-3 drops of contact solution to your mascara and shake. 2. Pour very hot water (not boiling) in a coffee cup and place your mascara in the cup for 2-3 minutes. This allows the mascara mixture to recombine. 3. Remove the mascara from the mug, shake it and allow it to cool. Presto, now you have some extra time to use your favorite mascara!

Create your own DIY glowing moisturizer

Want that healthy glow? An easy hack to help get that additional glow is to add a few drops of your favorite brightening facial oil to your favorite foundation. Simply add 3-4 drops of your favorite brightening facial oil to you foundation and mix them together thoroughly. Once this is mixed, simply apply it to your face as you would normally apply your foundation. The healthy oils will nourish your skin while giving you that dewy look.
