15 Fantastic Skincare & Beauty Tips

(NOTE: This was pushed to the top due to an attempt to add in labels. This was published several months ago, and is NOT new.)

Hi everyone! Lived One Thousand Lives here, and today I am going to give you my list of beauty tips/tricks that I have found to work! 

In no particular order, here they are:

1. Put chapstick on right before the shower. The steam helps take all the dead skin off.
2. Shave with conditioner, it helps get a closer shave.
3. Wear sunscreen. I know it's not "cool" but it's really good for your skin.
4. Moisturize! Everywhere!
5. Go natural with makeup as often as you can! Makeup clogs your pores!
6. Make your own facials to save money. Do it with a friend and it's a lot of fun too.
7. Exfoliate your skin.
8. Clean your face like 1,00000 times a day. Ok, not really but clean your face very often.
10. The best thing you can do is drink water. My trick is put 8 rubberbands on your wrist or in your pocket and after every glass of water take one away. After every sugary/caffeinated drink, add one back! This helps keep up on your hydration until you make it a habit.
11. Whiten your teeth with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, it works wonders.
12. Toothpaste on a pimple overnight practically takes the pimple right off.
13. Use the buisness card trick for better mascara. Don't know what i am talking about? Check it out here: Mascara Business Card Trick
14. If your mascara is running really low, but you can't get to a store, heat it for a few seconds with your blow dryer  It softens the mascara left over so you have some to use. 
15. Have a really red pimple? Break open a gel capsule of advil by poking a hole in it with a safety pin and pour the liquid onto the pimple. It instantly takes redness and swelling away.

These are my beauty tips and tricks! Let me know what you think and email me at

Thanks so much for having me!
