Living a fast-paced life can take a toll on our skin’s appearance which can leave us looking tired and dull. Fortunately, aside from a fixed skin care regimen, diet, and exercise, there are ways in which we can boost our skin’s natural appearance in mere seconds so we can get through the day in a breeze.
Although women often do their best to look beautiful with the use of beauty brands like MEMEBOX, some products may seem too intimidating to use, but beauty can be achieved in simplicity. Here are three simple beauty hacks that make you look gorgeous quickly:
1. Use facial wipes to remove dirt
Several women wear makeup when they go outside to help enhance their natural features. Unfortunately, deep-seated dirt, pollution, and sweat can cause our perfectly applied makeup to look smudgy and leave stains.
To keep your face looking fresh and clean, use facial wipes that have added vitamins to help wipe makeup grime in seconds before retouching your makeup. While there are certain products that last long throughout the day, investing in a few facial wipes with Vitamin E can help remove stubborn makeup residue with little to no effort while also giving your skin that much-needed glow.
2. Use oil blotting sheets
People with oily skin complexions are prone to their makeup becoming running throughout the day. Fortunately, there are tons of non-comedogenic products that are specially formulated to enhance one’s appearance without clogging their pores.
While they are a good investment, it also helps to purchase oil blotting sheets that help absorb excess oil from your t-zone area. This includes your forehead, nose bridge, and chin. During use, remember to use gentle patting motions to prevent makeup smudges.
3. Spritz some facial mist
Facial mists are specially formulated products that contain added nutrients which cools down your skin while also allowing it to emit a healthy glow. Many facial mists contain antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that help keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.
For those who are on a budget, there are several formulas that you can make straight from the kitchen. Here are some examples:
Green tea face mist
Green tea contains natural antioxidants that are known to help keep your skin smooth and radiant. Coupled with Vitamin E, this handy face mist formula is great for all skin types without leaving a greasy feeling.
What you will need:

-Prepare green tea according to instructions. Allow it to cool until it reaches room temperature.
-Using a needlepoint, poke the end of the Vitamin E capsule and add 2-3 drops of essence into the mixture

Cooling cucumber face mist
Cucumber is a natural hydrating ingredient that provides a natural cooling effect. This formula pairs cucumber with witch hazel to help hydrate the skin from the inside out.
What you will need:
-Cucumber juice (1 whole)
-Extract juice from cucumbers using a handy juicer. Measure amount of juice in a glass.
-Add witch hazel. Make sure it is half of what the amount of cucumber juice is available. (i.e., If you have 150 ml of cucumber juice then add 75 ml of witch hazel)
-Mix thoroughly. Store in a spray bottle and chill overnight.
Lavender and peppermint facial mist
Lavender contains several healing properties that also helps relax the body to relieve stress. Peppermint is a natural cooling agent which makes this recipe work for people in humid climates.

When applying face mists make sure to only add a spritz to your face when you feel your skin is getting dry. Allow it to set and continue on with your day. Additionally, you can also dry off excess moisture by patting in the formula with a clean handkerchief to allow better absorption. Most face mists rarely damage makeup, so you don’t have to worry about your makeup running.
It helps to be prepared when it comes to keeping our face clean and radiant throughout the day. While these handy materials are great to use, it’s also important to remove your makeup the minute you get home from work. Allow your skin to breathe by following up with your regular skin care routine before heading to bed. Don’t be surprised if you wake up the next day with a healthy glow!
