12 Beauty Hacks For Tired And Broke College Students That Will Change The Game

Like, seriously #4 though?!?!


Beauty shouldn't have to break the bank, here is how to get that Kardashian look without having the wallet of a Kardashian.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar 

It may not taste best, although it has many benefits such it can be used as mouthwash, hair rinse, moisturizer, and for sunburn relief. ALSO adding two tablespoons to water daily can promote weight loss.

2. Toothpaste 

It could never get easier than this, as toothpaste is something everyone has. If you find yourself with an annoying pimple, put some toothpaste on the spot and leave it over night. When you wake up, boom, the spot will either be reduced or gone!

3. Ground Coffee

Everyone loves coffee, so why not put it on your body? Coffee scrubs are all the rage and can help reduce cellulite. Instead of buying a coffee scrub, just mix coffee grounds, coconut oil, and raw sugar all together and apply in the shower!

4. Tomato Juice

Do you want longer nails? Well, I have a solution for you. Mix half a cup of tomato juice and two tablespoons of olive oil, and then soak your nails for 10-15 minutes. Doing this one to two times a week will help to promote nail growth!

5. Lemons

Want highlights without the salon price? Lemons can be used as a natural highlighter for hair. Mix lemon and honey together and then apply!

6. Vaseline

Can't get your perfume to last all day? Apply Vaseline to areas where you want to spray perfume, then spray the perfume on top! This acts as a base coat and the smell will last longer.

7. Baby Powder

Up late all night studying? Out of dry shampoo? Baby powder is your solution! Apply baby powder to the roots of your hair and then brush it out. Greasy hair be gone!

8. Braid Your Hair The Night Before

Want lived in curls but still want to sleep in? Braid your hair the night before and you will wake up to beautiful curls in the morning!

9. Hot Water + Mascara Tube 

Ever been in the middle of doing your makeup and your mascara dries out? Don't worry, run your mascara tube under hot water and it will be as good as new!

10. White/ Nude Eyeliner

Raise your hand if you get no sleep as a college student!!!! Well, I have just the trick for you. Apply white or nude eyeliner into your waterline and it will give off the illusion of wider, brighter eyes, which then tricks people into thinking you got 10 hours of sleep.

11. Honey 

After a long weekend of partying and late nights out your skin deserves the royal treatment. Apply honey to your skin and watch your skin glow. PS. it also helps to reduce acne!

12. Coconut Oil

Out of moisturizer? Apply coconut oil to desired areas, it is very moisturizing and can even help to fade scars!

I bet you didn't know some of these beauty tips! I hope they can help you. All tips are meant to be affordable, effective, and easy (so you can still sleep in)!!

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
