Being a lady is not cheap since all those beauty products cost a little fortune. As a trans woman, you already know that makeup and wigs alone are pricey, so you probably try to cut corners whenever possible. Don’t worry, we have some great news for you – we are bringing you some DIY beauty tips that actually work! Therefore, if you need to get ready for your TS date, read the following and see how can you look amazing and save money at the same time.
Put mayonnaise on your hair
If you have a natural hair, you will find this tip very useful. Before you take a shower and wash your hair, put some mayonnaise on the ends. That way you will keep them protected so that the shampoo doesn’t strip all the natural moisture and dry them out. Don’t forget to rinse it thoroughly though, you don’t want to smell like a sandwich.
Honey as a face mask
Honey is famous for its antibacterial properties that can help you if you have acne-prone skin. Just apply it to your face, leave it on for ten minutes and wash it off. Keep in mind that your skin might look worse before it gets better, since honey draws out the toxins, so don’t do this right before your date.
Baking soda as a teeth whitener
Nothing is as sexy as a big smile. Therefore, make sure your pearly whites are actually white. Mix a tablespoon of baking soda with three drops of hydrogen peroxide and use it as toothpaste. You will see the difference in no time.
Hair conditioner as a shaving cream
When you are already washing your hair, use a conditioner to soften your leg hairs and make them easier to shave. When you finish, you will see that your legs have never been smoother.
Keep a pot of Vaseline in your cupboard
Petroleum jelly has so many purposes you just need to keep it in your home. For instance, if you want to have smooth feet, just apply it all over them, slip on a pair of socks and go to sleep. You can also use it around the hairline, ears, and neck to avoid skin stains when dying your hair. Finally, you can use it to tame your eyebrows as well as for many other things.
