Life can definitely be hard at times, so anything that can make it a bit easier is a sort of blessing. Here are 5 fun and simple lifehacks that Beauty Lounge & Co. swear by that will not only save you time and money, but also relieve little stresses.
Stop buying packs of makeup remover wipes that contain chemicals you can’t even pronounce. Stop roughly scrubbing your skin with cleansers that claim to take off waterproof or mattifying products. START using a microfiber cloth to take off all your makeup! All you need to do is wet the cloth with warm water and swipe across your face, how easy. You’ll also be gently exfoliating your skin while clearing out your pores. These cloths can be very cheap, like this one from Walmart or this 2-pack from Ulta.
We've all been there, you go to give your lashes a little bit more life… but your mascara has dried up. To save yourself a few dollars and to extend the life of your mascara: add a few eyedrops to the tube, give it a shake, and swirl the wand around. Now she’s as good as new!

Ironing can be a bit of a process. A simple, and time-efficient, way to get light wrinkles out of your shirt or pants before heading out: STEAMY SHOWER! Hang your clothes in the bathroom while you take a hot shower to create steam that will knock those wrinkles right out.
Side note: While hot showers can feel amazing and be therapeutic, cold water has many health and skin benefits. Start slow and gradually turn down the heat at the end of your showers.
An easy, cheap, and natural way to rejuvenate and smooth your skin, is by making your own sugar scrubs. A simple recipe for one is: white sugar, lemon juice, and honey/coconut oil. You can enhance your scrubs by adding essential oils or any other ingredients you think your skin will love (think coffee grounds!). These scrubs can be used on your face and body, and can be stored for weeks at a time.

This last lifehack may arguably be the most important. Use frozen grapes to chill your wine! (Talk about full circle.) You don’t have to wait for the bottle to chill in the freezer or risk watering down your drink with ice. Keep some frozen grapes on hand and drop them into your glass to get perfectly cooled wine every time. Not only does it look super cute, but you have a nice, healthy snack at the end of each glass!
