Gallery: Oddball At-Home Beauty Tricks And Tips

As I write this, I’m smearing raw cookie dough all over my face. That’s not a beauty tip or trick. I just wanted you to know.

      I’ve personally tried the conditioner tip before and it actually works but you’ll go through a lot. At least I did. I’d like to hear from someone that’s tried the chili pepper/lip plumper tip. It just sounds painful.

      I’ve never used aspirin to combat dandruff (and I’m pretty sure the active ingredient in dandruff shampoo is pyrithizone zinc, not salicylic acid), but it does make a wonderful exfoliant and/or mask for your skin. Salicylic acid is in many OTC acne medications – it’s an anti-inflammatory and so does wonders to dry out spots and reduce redness along with making your skin softer.

      I’ve used toothpaste on pimples. It doesn’t sting, but it dries the skin out.

      The Prep H tip only works if your’e in canada. The US version has a different ingredient list.

      I have heard of using beer in your hair before but I don’t like the smell. I have tried apple cider vinegar, and the smell went away just fine (or maybe I just got used to it…)

      Instead of using toothpaste for pimples, use kaolin clay mask. Toothpaste can sting or really dry out the face.

      A friend of mine used the the powder on the hair trick when she was driving across country for a few days. I just washed my hair in the sink at the rest stops.

      My daughter uses lotion instead of shaving cream on her legs all the time. Moisturizes her legs and she doesn’t need to use any lotion afterward.

      I tried teabags, they did not work for me.

      And I would never use chili peppers on my lips, can you imagine how much that’d sting and what if you got that in your eye from your fingers accidentally? OUCH!
