5 Strange, Yet Effective, Beauty Tips That You've Never Heard Of

Cosmetics departments, makeup counters, drugstores, and department stores are filled to the brim with all kinds of powders, ointments, lotions, and various other beauty products claiming to be the key to your physical success. But you can also find useful beauty products right in your house or kitchen. Here are 5 odd, yet effective, beauty tips that are pretty under the radar, but boy do they work!

1. Rub Potatoes On Your Armpits

Using deodorant and removing hair from this area darkens the armpit skin. Lightening creams are expensive and tend to irritate the sensitive skin in this area. Not a problem! Simply grate a potato to release more juice and then rub it on the affected area. Do this on a regular basis and soon you will see results.

2. Wash Your Hair With Beer

Beer is a proven alternative for hair care. It's very easy! Just leave a bottle or can open overnight so the beer loses its carbonation. Shampoo and rinse your hair as normal, apply the beer, and let it sit for a few minutes.

3. Get Rid Of Under Eye Bags With Hemorrhoid Cream

This is probably the weirdest trick to be found in the virtual world. Many famous women have confessed to using this cream on their face instead of their backside. The reason? It has incredible anti-inflammatory properties. But be careful! First do a patch test on a small section of your face. This will keep it under control in case you experience irritation or an allergic reaction. Remember to speak with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.

4. Rub Banana Peels On Your Teeth

This is a natural alternative to all those chemical teeth whitening products. Go ahead and peel a banana... and try to leave some of the fruit pulp in the peel. Now rub! Rub the inside of the banana peel against your teeth. The pulp will stay above the teeth. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and then brush your teeth as per usual. Your teeth will look white and plaque-free in no time – great and natural!

5. Remove Makeup With Olive Oil

This is the perfect solution for when your makeup remover wipes run out. What a lifesaver! Put a bit of olive oil on a cotton pad and you'll be able to remove it all, even stubborn mascara. The oil will also moisturize your skin and restore nutrients for a fresher look. Easy and useful!

Beer, bananas, olive oil... all things you already have at home, so there's no need to visit the local makeup department or even leave your house!
