TOP 8 MOST UNUSUAL SKINCARE TIPS
We’ve delved into countless topics these past few months, including last week's breakdown of hyperpigmentation, tips for your nightly routines, and letting you in on the hottest skincare secrets! But this week we’re shifting the discussion, have you ever been given some skincare advice that seems like it has absolutely nothing to do with skincare? Something that you were never sure had a link or just seemed outright ridiculous? Well, we at Transformulas have jotted down all of our most unusual skin care tips that work and compiled them in a list of 10 of our most unusual skincare top tips, have a read if you can handle it!
We’ll start with a tip that is super helpful and not as unusual as the rest, stress and lack of blood flow can make skin dull and dry. To keep your body — and skin — in check, try a 10-minute yoga routine once a day, focusing on inverted poses like downward dog, child’s pose, and sun salutations. This will increase the blood flow to your face and the rest of your body, plus reduce the stress of a long day. Basically, an allrounder tip to better your lifestyle overall!
NAPPY RASH CREAM FOR IRRITATION
We’ve all had big, irritated blemishes show up overnight, and we all know how irritating it is to cover them up. But say you’ve got an event in the evening and you’ve woken up to a huge pimple on your face, for a quick and incredible way to get rid of redness, swelling, and any pain associated with the pimple, apply a dab of diaper rash cream to the area and it’ll practically shrink before your eyes. Hiding your pimple behind our Transformulas EyeRetouch skincare make-up hybrid will have never been simpler!
FADE SCARS WITH RAW POTATO
Many of us suffer from skin blemishes and acne to some extent from time to time, and these can often leave red marks and scars on our skin long after the blemish has gone. To help fade red marks and facial scars, try treating your skin with potato juice. It may sound odd, but potatoes contain enzymes that can help to promote healthy skin and reduce scarring, and they also come at a budget-friendly price. To try this treatment, simply cut a potato in half then rub it all over the relevant area, letting the potato juices cover the skin. As discussed in last week's blog, the Transformulas range has products with the perfect ingredients to fight hyperpigmentation such as the Marine Miracle Creme (vitamin A), the Flawless PhotoGlow (SPF), and the Flawless Eyeretouch (concealing the patch). Using these products alongside this tip can help make a big difference to your skin!
FIX FAKE TAN MISHAPS WITH BAKING SODA
So, you were just after a little bit of a glow and now you’re looking a slightly streaky shade of orange... Don’t panic! Glowing, streak-free skin is still within your reach. To fix a bad fake tan, make yourself an exfoliator out of baking soda (or bicarbonate of soda) and water. Mix the ingredients to form a paste and then rub all over your face and body in circles to lighten your tan and help remove any streaks.
DE-BLOAT WITH APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
There’s nothing worse than feeling like a bloated mess. To kick that yucky sensation to the curb, mix 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 5 ounces of water and drink up. Within 30 minutes, the vinegar’s enzymes will slow down your gastric juice production and support proper digestion.
DANDRUFF SHAMPOO FOR EXTRA DRY SKIN
For extra dry, flaky skin, shampoo may be the answer to all your needs. About once or twice a month, simply switch out your usual cleanser in favor of dandruff shampoo to balance the yeast levels in your face, which could be causing flaky skin. Accompanied with your Marine Miracle Creme as a nightly moisturiser and you’ve got your ultimate hydration duo for baby soft skin and helps minimise lines and wrinkles.
WASH YOUR FACE WITH HONEY
We know it sounds bizarre, but honey is an anti-inflammatory and soothing! It removes makeup without stripping as well, notes esthetician and founder of BijaBody health+beauty Melissa Picoli. “Scoop it out with a spoon and use it to wash your face,” she says. “Then remove with a warm washcloth once you’re finished.”
MILK AND ICE BATH
For sensitive skin that’s easily irritated, soak a washcloth in milk and ice cubes, then wring it out and let it sit on your freshly cleansed face for about 10-15 minutes. Between the pH level in the milk, the cold temperature of the cloth, and the protein, your skin will feel brand new in minutes. A great addition to this tip would be using our Flawless PhotoGlow SPF 30+ to avoid all sun damage and further irritation on the skin and visibly improves skin tone and clarity over 30 days with repeat use!
