Tiktok is an app that features short videos, most often of lip-syncs, comedy, and talent. However, TikTok has tons of beauty and skincare videos as well, and a lot of those videos feature quick DIY hacks to solve daily skin issues such as blackheads, pimples, and redness. There are also dozens of DIY face masks available on TikTok, too. The real question is: do any of these products produce results? This is a list of ten TikTok beauty hacks that, based on the quality of ingredients and frequency of use, produce real results.1. Cold sores killing your winter vibes? This DIY hack gives you the perfect, quick solution for your woes. This tutorial is super simple because it only requires two ingredients and is even safe for people with sensitive skin. Combine vaseline and lemon balm extract, then apply it to your cold sore as soon as you feel it coming. For the best results, this mixture can be applied daily.

2. Who isn’t always looking for a stellar DIY face mask? Face masks are an excellent way to maintain beautiful skin, but sometimes you don’t feel like going to the store to purchase one. This DIY face mask has a host of ingredients that do wonders for your skin. Combine two teaspoons of oats, two teaspoons of curd, and one teaspoon of honey. Mix it well and apply it to your face for thirty minutes. All three of these ingredients have positive effects when used on the skin, so this mixture is safe to use twice a week.

3. Are you looking for a way to soothe red and irritated skin? Mix aloe vera gel with two drops of tea tree oil, freeze, and then rub over your skin. The aloe vera gel will reduce the redness and feel amazing against your face while the tea tree oil has healing properties. If you’re not a DIY-person, then you can always purchase Beauty Shield Massaging Overnight Recovery Cream by E.L.F. cosmetics. This product works much the same way and is still just as good for your skin!

4. I’m sure you exfoliate your face regularly, but how often do you exfoliate your lips? If you’ve never considered exfoliating your lips, then you’re leaving rough, dead skin on them, preventing them from looking and feeling their best. You can make a quick exfoliating DIY recipe with things in your kitchen. Combine ½ cup sugar and ½ cup olive oil, mix, and then apply. Massage, rinse, and enjoy softer, even more kissable lips.

5. What do you normally do after popping a pimple? Fret over the scar it may leave? There is a simple way to reduce the chances of your pimple leaving a noticeable scar, even if you can’t help but pick at it. After you pop your pimple and clean the area with soap and water, apply a little dab of tea tree oil on the space. The tea tree oil will kill the bacteria and prevent it from causing more breakouts. Next, apply a layer of vitamin E oil to the open wound. Vitamin E oil is excellent for wound healing and reducing scarring.

6. Do you suffer from dark eye bags in the morning? There are ways to reduce the appearance of them. Beyond getting a good night’s rest, this beauty expert has five tips for reducing dark circles and puffy eyes. First, sleep with two pillows and on your back. Sleeping on your back helps prevent wrinkles, too. Then use a chilled spoon or roller to massage your skin. Apply a light serum with caffeine, such as The Ordinary’s Caffeine Solution 4% + EGCG, and reduce your overall sodium intake for long-term improvement.

8. Blackheads are a fact of life, but there’s an easy way to remove them with items you already have in your bathroom. This make-up artist shows you how.

9. Beauty starts from the inside out, meaning what you eat and drink matters when it comes to the health of your skin! Drinking plenty of water is one major key to healthy, glowing skin, but there’s more you can do. This TikTok user shares what she drinks in the morning to make her skin glow. Combine ½ tablespoon apple cider vinegar, ½ freshly squeezed lemon, ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder, two shakes of cayenne pepper, 1 cup hot water, and a half spoonful of manuka honey. Stir and enjoy beautiful skin.

CMON MADDIE..... Really ? 😒
CMON MADDIE..... Really ? 😒
okay so i’m sorry for the light this week but i’m working on a work station. However this Morphe Maddie palette isn’t doing it for the me. In my opinion I believe to pull a good palette together is blend ability and good shimmer or glitters. The shimmers on the is so trash 🗑 sorry to say. i literally had to dig for a good creamy shine. However it isn’t a complete miss. The other colors did have some good pigment and my fav shade is the black shade. It was really dark and blendable. I would probably recommend this to someone with more fair skin because they pigments and shimmers would work better in their favor. Have you used this palette if yes tell me all about below, if no would you still wanna try it out and why ?

With so many self- proclaimed beauty gurus in the world today, it’s very easy to get sucked into the DIY trend. Most experts and skincare specialists will tell you these homemade concoctions are not as good as they are made to be. Here are 5 ingredients you should not put on your face and why. 1. Essential Oils- The fragrant portion of plants is what makes essential oils. Modern science has revealed how fragrant oils cause problems for the skin. In the long run components in essential oils can significantly irritate and damage the skin. 2. Lemon Juice 🍋- Lemons are extremely acidic, which will irritate your skin. You can experience excessive redness, dryness, and skin peeling. Using lemons on your skin can cause more damage then benefit to your skin. 3. Coconut Oil- This ingredient causes a lot of debate amongst my followers, but fact is a fact, coconut oil is highly comedogenic. This means that the oil clogs pores on your face. When you apply coconut oil to your face it lays on the surface and is not able to be absorbed into the skin due to its large molecules. It can cause breakouts, blackheads, and whiteheads. 4. Witch Hazel- Here is another debate stirring ingredient. A lot of my patients and followers swear by witch hazel because of its immediate results on absorbing oil on the skin. What they fail to understand that it is not only absorbing the excess oils, but it is also stripping your skin of its natural oils. This can be very damaging to your skin and it’s natural protecting barrier, causing unnatural sensitized and dry skin. 5. Toothpaste- Such a popular trend and so harmful to your skin. Toothpaste contains high levels of baking soda which will mess with your skin’s ph level. This can lead to redness and burning of the skin. Toothpaste is a horrible option for your blemishes and instead I would recommend THE inkey LIST - Succinic Acid Acne Treatment As tempting as it is to try natural remedies at home, do your skin a favor and resort to stabilized and researched ingredients and products.
