The 7 Best Free Beauty Hacks That’ll Give You Clearer Skin.
The best things in life really are free, even when it comes to your beauty routine. But taking care of your skin can be a big investment so we’re always down for tricks that don’t take a big bite out of our paychecks. Which is what led us here: We’ve asked top skin care experts to give us their best advice. And the part we love the most? Not one thing below costs a single penny (assuming you already have most of these things in your kitchen).
Give Yourself a Facial Massage
Got puffy eyes? No problem. Sure, you could stock up on eye cream or you could use your fingers to give yourself an under-eye massage. “Use your ring fingers to press gently on the orbital bone, moving from the inner to outer corner of your eyes and repeating two to three times,” says celebrity facialist cecilia wong. “This will not only stimulate circulation, but it also helps minimize fine lines and reduce inflammation.” If you have time to spare, score even bigger benefits with facial yoga. (Really!)
Put Some Salt on It
You’ve got two options here: You could ice a zit to help bring the inflammation down or even better (and maybe more comfortable): You could salt it. “Sea salt has powerful antibacterial properties and works to pull oil from the pore,” says Karen Young, founder of Our Shave. She recommends combining one teaspoon of sea salt with enough water to form a paste. Dot this on the offending zit, let it dry for up to an hour (10 minutes for sensitive skin types) and then rinse it off.
Wash Your Hands
And not only after you go to the bathroom.”Your hands are covered in tons of bacteria from touching doorknobs, keyboards, etc.,” says celebrity Joanna Vargas.”When you touch your face, you’re spreading that bacteria to your skin, which then can trigger breakouts and other skin problems.” If you don’t have easy access to a sink but know your hands are grimy (i.e. you just got off the subway) at least make your face a hands-free zone.
