10 Vegan Beauty Hacks

If you’re looking for an easy makeover in a pinch, look no further. We’ve got 10 easy vegan beauty hacks that ERRRBODY should know about!

 

1. PIMPLE REDUCER

Got a big, juicy zit popping up before your hot date? Well, don’t trip—just keep this secret remedy on hand, and you’ll always be ready to fight those breakouts.

Pimple Reducer

Mix 1/8 cup of melted coconut oil with 6 drops of tea tree oil and place in a small tub or several old lip balm containers. Store in the fridge to help firm up the mixture. You can dab this stuff onto your zits with a Q-tip as needed, but always do it after you’ve washed your face!

 

2. NAIL STAIN REMOVER

Hey, no lie—we ALL love nail art. But that doesn’t mean our nails have to end up looking like a crusty, yellow mess. So try this:

Nail Stain

Mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with 1/2 cup of water to make a paste. Add more baking soda, if needed, then brush onto your nails to whiten them.

 

3. PUFFY EYE REDUCER

Out late last night? We won’t tell—and your friends won’t be able to tell, either, if you try THIS:

Puffy Eye

Cover each eye with a slice of raw potato for 5 minutes. That’s it! #TURNUP

 

4. SUPER-SHINY HAIR RINSE

Is your do looking more like straw than actual human hair these days? Then YOU NEED THIS NOW:

Apple Cider Hair Shine

Shampoo your hair, then gently press the excess water out. Apply apple cider vinegar, focusing first on the tips of your hair, then moving up. Leave in for at least 15 minutes, then rinse.

 

5. LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER

Coconut oil is like an all-in-one beauty MIRACLE. Seriously, doe—and it works wonders on your hair:

Add 2 tablespoonfuls of coconut oil to an empty spray bottle and fill the rest with warm water. Shake the bottle and apply to the ends of your hair. Comb through your hair for an even distribution.

 

6. TEETH WHITENER

Strawberries are a natural whitener, and baking soda will give you the FRESHEST breath in town (#NoMoreStankBreath):

Strawberry Whitener

Mash 1/2 cup of strawberries with 1/2 cup of baking soda to make a paste. Apply to your teeth with a toothbrush. Leave on for a few minutes, then rinse.

 

7. SCRUB FOR NASTY FEET

Are those sandals screwing up the soles of your feet? This stuff will fix ‘em in no time:

Fill an empty bottle with 2/3 cup of sugar and add cruelty-free dish soap until the desired consistency is reached. Add 4 to 6 drops of essential oil, then massage onto clean, wet feet for 5 minutes and rinse with warm water.

 

8. ALL-IN-ONE SCRUB (Lips, Face, and Body)

Feel smooth, suave, and silky ALL OVER:


Mix 1/2 cup of sugar (white or brown), 1/2 cup of olive oil, and 1/2 cup of agave nectar. Use as an exfoliator on freshly washed skin, then rinse with warm water. Enjoy that baby-soft goodness!

 

9. DEODORANT

Going vegan does NOT mean that you have to smell like straight-up ass:

Deodorant

Mix 1 tablespoonful of baking soda with 1/4 cup of coconut oil (organic, unrefined oil is best!) and 2 tablespoonfuls of cornstarch to form a solid paste. Store in a glass jar and rub into your armpits daily.

 

10. ACNE SCAR MASK

Need even more help for your zits? Well, not only is oatmeal delish, it also has the power to reduce inflammation and scarring:

Acne Scar

Mix 1/2 cup of oatmeal with 1/2 cup of almond milk. Apply to freshly washed skin for 3 to 5 minutes, then rinse off.

    Adding essential oils to the deodorant is really helpful, and I’d venture to say necessary. I use a similar deo recipe plus essential oils *every single day* and I NEVER stink. I almost always would get some underarm odor when using Jason or Tom’s of Maine deo. Good stuff!
