Quick Refresh Beauty Hacks


As a dancer, it can be nice to be able to refresh your hair without washing it too much and your skin whenever you sweat. Today I am sharing with you some of my favorite beauty hacks for achieving a clean look without too much work. I hope you enjoy!

Dry Shampoo

Ingredients-

  • 6-10 Drops of essential oils (lavender, peppermint, lemon)

  • 2 Tbsp. Corn starch

  • 2 Tbsp. Rice flour

  • 2 Tbsp. Arrowroot powder

Directions-

Mix all ingredients in a salt/pepper shaker. When ready to use, sprinkle a little into your roots and let sit for 10-15 minutes, rub in with your fingers, and brush out.


Makeup Remover Wipes

Ingredients-

  • 3 Tbsp. Jojoba oil

  • 1 Tbsp. Witch hazel

  • 1 Cup Water

  • 1 Package of round cotton pads

  • 1 Small glass jar or tight sealed container

Directions-

Add the oil and witch hazel to the water and stir to combine as much as possible. Pour a couple of tablespoons of liquid into the jar and add about five cotton pads, pressing down so that they absorb all the liquid. While still stirring, pour a couple more tablespoons into the jar. Add five more pads to the jar and press down and then flip the whole stack over so that the driest pad is on the bottom. Repeat all this until the jar is filled.


Foot Soak

Ingredients-

  • 1/4 Cup Epsom salts

  • 2 Tbsp. Baking soda

  • 10-15 Drops of essential oil (lavender, grapefruit, peppermint)

  • Tub of warm/hot water

Pour the Epsom salts and baking soda into the bowl and stir until dissolved. Drop the essential oils in and enjoy!
