When you’re in your 20s, everything seems so simple and easy to achieve. Many people claim that this decade was the most beautiful in their lives, so try your best to live it to the fullest. This should mainly be done by taking care of your health and overall well-being, so if you would like to know how to do this, here are seven useful beauty hacks every 20-something girl should consider.
Sleep for seven to eight hours every night
You’ve probably heard this a million times, but managing to sleep seven to eight hours every night has more benefits than you can possibly imagine. People call it ‘beauty sleep’ for a good reason – it helps you stay well-rested, which results in refreshed skin. That’s because free radicals responsible for premature aging are being destroyed while we sleep, which inevitably leads to radiant skin.

Olive oil to keep you razor sharp and rust-free

Coating your razor in olive oil between shaves can be extremely helpful, particularly because we all know how fast these can get rusty. Olive oil will successfully prevent that, helping it stay as clean as new. This is particularly important since rusty razors can do more harm than good – apart from causing nicks while shaving, it’s highly likely that you’ll end up with some kind of infection.
Coconut oil to the rescue
Coconut oil should be your best friend when you’re in your 20s simply because it has so many benefits for your skin and hair. It’s great as a makeup remover, and even a waterproof mascara doesn’t stand a chance against it. It also does wonders as a body moisturizer and cuticle oil. Furthermore, you can always mix it with sugar and get the most powerful scrub you’ve ever tried. It also tames frizz, so it’s always advisable to have some coconut oil at your disposal.

Use a tinted moisturizer instead of a foundation

A tinted moisturizer is what you should opt for instead of foundation because it’s much more lightweight which is crucial for younger-looking skin. Such a product is extremely beneficial for your skin because it keeps it hydrated all day long, while providing enough coverage at the same time. The fact that it’s so light is its major advantage since it’s less likely to cause breakouts due to clogged pores, which often happens with a too cakey foundation.
Fix self-tanning mistakes with baking soda
Baking soda is probably one of the most helpful ingredients when it comes to fixing self-tanning mistakes. Uneven blotches happen frequently, especially if you’re not quite experienced at self-tanning, but that’s completely fine. Exfoliation is the key to success – add some baking soda to your loofah, get into a shower, and start scrubbing the problematic spots. You will soon notice that this is one of the best ways to get rid of those hideous splotches.

Cook your own meals

When you’re in your 20s, your body needs as many nutrients as it can get to keep your energy levels high. Processed foods are high in artificially added sugar, which is exactly what triggers acne and other skin conditions. So, avoid those and start cooking your own meals – it’s the best way to keep track of what you’re eating on a daily basis. Apart from that, taking some supplements to further improve your overall well-being is essential – Biocare multivitamins are what you need to stay healthy and nourished.

Turn an eye pencil into a gel liner
If you’ve run out of your favorite gel liner, all you need is your favorite eye pencil and a lighter. Heat the tip of the eye pencil for a second, and let it cool down for another 15 seconds. Once that’s done, it’ll be smooth enough to glide on your skin perfectly, which will provide an intense smudge. Once you try this trick, you’ll probably never want to buy another gel liner again.

Each of these seven tips is more than useful for any 20-something girl out there, so make sure to come back to them as soon as you need some help with your everyday beauty routine. Apart from being extremely practical, these are budget-friendly too, which is why you should always bear them in mind.
