5 Weird Beauty Hacks That Will Help You Stand Out From The Crowd

Everyone wants to look their best and feel good about their appearance, but sometimes beauty takes time and money. That's why we've collected these five weird beauty hacks that will help you stand out from the crowd without spending too much money or using complicated products. From saving yourself at the last minute to fixing your hair after your workout, here are five weird beauty hacks you can do on your own!

1.    Use Lip Balm To Hide Zits

If you have a zit that needs hiding, try using a lip balm. Rub it over your zit and then blot it with a tissue. It will fill in the skin and cover up your zit without looking too obvious. This trick is especially helpful if you need to go somewhere shortly or on a date night with your significant other. Lip balm, including drugstores, supermarkets, and gas stations, can be found anywhere. So before you head out, put some on your lips, so it'll already be there for you when you go out.

2.    Use Lotion On Your Hair

Lotion can be used on your hair to tame frizz, make curls more manageable, and give hair an extra shine. To use the cream on your hair, apply a dollop to dry or damp strands and style as you normally would.

To take advantage of the benefits of lotion for your tresses, apply it when the weather is humid or in humid places like the bathroom during showering. The cream will help keep moisture from evaporating out of your locks.

3.    Use Baby Powder As A Dry Shampoo

If you've ever tried to go a day or two without washing your hair, you know that it doesn't end well. But as with most things in life, there are hacks for this too. One of the simplest tricks is to use baby powder as a dry shampoo. It will soak up any oils and make your hair look fresh again. Just sprinkle the powder on your roots and then brush it out evenly throughout your scalp. This trick also works if you want to add volume to thinning hair! Dust some baby powder at the top of your head and give it a quick shake.

Don't forget to put it on the ends, too. Baby power can be used for more than just dusty buns. Dust some along your eyebrows for an all-natural way to set them after filling them in with pencil or shadow - no need to buy expensive eyebrow gel when you have baby powder!

4.    Use Coconut Oil On Your Face

Coconut oil not only smells divine, but it also has some amazing benefits for your skin. Coconut oil is a natural cleanser and moisturizer that works wonders for many skin problems. It's perfect for people with sensitive skin or acne-prone skin because it doesn't contain chemicals or artificial fragrances that irritate your face. In addition to being a natural cleanser, coconut oil also works as a great makeup remover that won't leave your face feeling greasy or oily! Using coconut oil on your face can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as keep your facial hair soft and shiny. Using coconut oil on your face is easy!

5.    Get Softer Feet With Socks

You can get softer feet by putting on socks before you go to bed and leaving them on overnight. This also works for dry hands, elbows, and knees. Soaking your feet in warm water with some Epsom salt will soften the skin and make it easier to exfoliate your feet.


Of course, this is not a complete list, as there are tons of other weird and wonderful beauty products that could easily take your look-up a few points. If you want to try something that's outside your usual comfort zone, challenge yourself to find an item that will give you an edge in the race for beauty. Then bring it out at the next cocktail party and see how many people ask about your beauty secret.
