5 Beauty Dilemmas You Can Solve At Home While in Quarantine
Maan de Vera
The rest of the world may be on pause right now, but the case shouldn't be the same for our beauty routines. Since many of our go-to beauty places will remain closed until the community quarantine is lifted, we just need to take matters into our own hands using the things that are available inside our homes.
While you can't DIY everything, there are certainly some beauty concerns that you can fix in the comforts of your own home. Here's how:
1. Whiteheads and Blackheads
No matter how much we try to cleanse our faces religiously, these whiteheads and blackheads would always be a problem. If can't get a facial right now, worry not because this can easily be fixed with an egg and tissue paper. This is because experts believe that eggs have astringent and exfoliating properties that will help clear your face. On the other hand, the tissue paper will serve as a sheet of the mask while the egg hardens.
2. Frizzy Hair
Is it just us or is your hair also getting frizzy due to all the naps that you've been taking? Since going to a salon is currently impossible, you might as well give the CONSUKA method a try. This involves mixing vinegar with your go-to conditioner. According to experts, vinegar helps close your hair cuticle and makes your hair more manageable and shinier.
3. Dark Underarms
There are many reasons for getting dark underarms, but the primary way to reverse this is to exfoliate. All you need to remove the accumulated dead skin cells from your underarms are baking soda and lemon juice. They say that making a paste using these ingredients stimulates cell turnover to make your skin look lighter.
4. Unruly Eyebrows
By now, you most likely have a trusted eyebrow studio, but we all know that it may take some time before you can pay them a visit again. In the meantime, let a simple spooly, tweezer, and razor help you get by. It may seem intimidating at first, but it’s actually really simple. Just take your time and keep your hands as steady as possible!
5. Unwanted Hair
We’re only humans whose hair can grow in places that we don’t want it to. As many experts do not advise plucking or tweezing, our next best option is to wax. Good thing you can make your own organic wax using only sugar, lemon, and water!
These at-home tips will surely help you get through your beauty dilemmas while we're still on lockdown. Just remember that while these are generally safe, we can react differently to these hacks. Monitor the results and discontinue as soon as you start feeling iffy.
Other than that, you should be fine. Take the time to pamper yourself because you deserve it!
