Life is hard. Life is really, really hard sometimes. We get it, keeping up with a beauty routine can be one of the first things to go when life gets busy. Fret not! We’ve got your back! These 14 simple and quick beauty tips can help make your daily routine a little less crazy.
1. Remove Makeup With Coconut Oil
Coconut oil can be used for a variety of things, from shaving cream to deodorant, but it is particularly useful as an eye makeup remover. Coconut oil is not only great for hydrating your skin, the oil is also great at breaking down eye makeup, including normally hard to take off waterproof mascara, and it works as a nutrient that helps your eyelashes grow longer and thicker. It comes both in solid and liquid form and can easily be applied using a cotton ball or Q-tip.

2. Skin Care With Tea Tree Oil
Acne creams can sometimes do more harm than good because of the chemicals in them. Every morning and night when you see an inflamed spot, dab a bit of tree oil to naturally kill the bacteria.

3. Powder Your Lipstick to Last All Day
Keep your lipstick in check all day with this simple trick! After applying your lipstick, take a tissue and pull it apart so it is only 1 ply, and lay it over your lips. Powder your lips on top of the tissue using a transparent powder, allowing a small amount of powder to set on your lips without drying or dulling them out for a long-lasting effect.

4. DIY Thicker Lashes
False eyelashes are like a blessing sent from heaven, let’s be real. When there’s no time to put them into the perfect position that will last the whole day, you can save time by taking a commonplace household item to the next level! Curl your lashes and put mascara on like you would normally, and then using a Q-tip dredge your lashes with a layer of baby powder before applying a second coat that will leave your natural lashes looking like they’ve doubled in size!
5. Beach Waves in Three Steps
No time to do your hair? Simply put your hair in a ponytail while the curling iron heats up, and divide it into 2-4 sections. Individually curl each section, put down your hair, and run out the door with beachy waves!

8. Smooth Soles Without the Spa Price Tag
One of the best parts about pedicures are the soft feet that walk out of the spa. Treat yourself to a daily foot pampering by applying Vaseline to the soles of your feet and then putting socks on when you go to bed. You’ll wake up to soft, smooth soles without spending any extra time or money at the salon.

9. Moisturize Your Skin While You Sleep
We all know how tough cold weather can be on our skin, but ladies with dry skin know it best. Invest in a humidifier to keep on while you’re asleep. The moisturized air that it creates will help to hydrate your skin without you moving a single muscle.
10. Prevent Cellulite with Coffee
Coffee increases circulation, reducing the appearance of cellulite and making the perfect main ingredient for your body scrub. The scrub works to get rid of dead skin, while the caffeine stimulates the skin cells and increases circulation.
