Beauty Essentials that aren’t makeup

When I talk beauty with my girls, we talk about the obvious go to products like makeup, and skincare, the new hair styles. During our conversation I started to have one of those mind shattering moments when I realized the necessities to getting flawless skin, the perfect smile, or that healthy glowing skin we want goes unnoticed. 

Here are some beauty essentials we gathered that aren’t makeup!  

Teeth Whiteners

Teeth whiteners are a convenient to add to your beauty routine. There are different ways to achieve a whiter smile. The top two everyone preferred were strips and whitening kits. In addition to the two pair it with a whitening toothpaste and you’ll have that sparkling smile in no time. 


Tooth whitening Strips

This ranked in the highest when asking a group of people how they prefer to whiten their teeth. Since its super easy to add to your daily routine it was pretty much a no brainier to have these in the cabinet. These bad boys aren’t cheap but after doing the calculations its less than 1.00 per treatment. You can get them here from amazon

I personally cannot use strips because I have tooth sensitivity afterwards and for me the pain isn’t worth the gain. All beauty doesn’t have to be pain. If you experience tooth sensitivity there’re other ways to whiten your smile. 

Whitening Kit

For the people with sensitive teeth this may be an option for you. I personally use this method and I like the results. Its super simple but it just takes a little more prep work but many people love them. This is not the one I personally use but is much cheaper and had many positive reviews, you can check it out here. 

Dry Skin Body Brush

Dry brushing for the skin

Whens the last time you gave your body a scrub down? Did you know dry brushing has many benefits?

Exfoliates – removes dead dry skin, improving appearance, clearing your clogged pores, and allowing your skin to “breathe.” 
Reduce Cellulite – softens hard fat deposits below the skin while distributing fat deposits more evenly to diminish the appearance of cellulite.
Stimulate Your Lymphatic System– Helps release toxins 
Increase Circulation – Increases circulation to your skin and helps eliminate metabolic waste.

I must warn you, you’ll become addicted

Give this a try and I’m sure you’ll become addicted and have smoother skin, you can find this dry brush here. Use this with left over coffee grinds you’ll have a diy cellulite scrub for a fraction of the price. 

Ice Roller

I have a hard time getting up in the morning and when I do get out of the bed my face feels swollen. Every morning I rub a ice cube all over my face to help fight puffiness in my face. 

Ice Rollers are convenient and help with puffiness in the skin, tightening pores, fighting dark circles and its a great way to help wake you up.

Face Steamer

facial steamer for pores

This is my all time favorite thing to do on my down time. I have been steaming my face for awhile. Before I was boiling a pot of water and sitting over it with a towel. Now I have a steamer! 

Facial Steamers are good to pull toxins out of your face by opening your pores and releasing the nasty buildup. I’ll steam my face and put a mask on right after to get a deep clean.

Makeup Head Band

This is a something I cant stop buying! I have at least three different head bands. I use these all the time and when my bands are dirty I realize how much I use them. 

  1. I use them to do my makeup (keeps my hur out of my face)
  2. I wear one when I wash my face (again keeps my hur out of my face)
  3. I pop this bad boy on when Im having a spa day (You guessed it, Keeps my hur out of my face) 

If you haven’t started using headbands in your beauty routine I dare you to try these, Shit will be amazing
