Seriously though, sometimes my wrinkles bother me and sometimes they don't. And by the way, not smiling or having Resting B*tch Face does not prevent them from happening. The wrinkles still showed up anyway. While I do use products that help smooth them out a little like this, sometimes I want a little more. Okay, I want them GONE.
Here's how I came up with a beauty hack to temporarily get rid of wrinkles:
That's when it hit me. Wrinkles. Smooth. Silicone pad. I got the crazy idea to get one for myself to test out on my facial wrinkles. I tested it out on my laugh lines and marionette lines around my mouth--this is how my brain works, y'all. It WORKED. The results were temporary as long as I kept using them, but it worked. You can get these at Walmart, Target, drugstores, online.
Here's another hack for wrinkles that's similar:
Here's the before. Not too bad, but noticeable. I decided to test this out on one side of my face. Please excuse the difference in lighting on the pics. These were all taken different days, and I thought I had the same settings. Also note I am wearing an illuminating foundation in the hopes that it would make my wrinkles more prominent on camera.
I know I can't be the only one to think of this because I was sent a kit to remove chest wrinkles (side sleeper here) and it has the same "technology" of the silicone. If I skip a night, it comes back some, so I only do this every once in a while because I forget (or lazy). But it lasts as long as I keep up the ritual of wearing the pads. Just something I thought might be helpful to others!
FYI: If you are allergic to silicone or the products mentioned, please don't use them.
Do you ever use beauty hacks?
I recently wrote a post about cleansing balms. It's right here.
To further explain them, I made a video on my blog's Facebook page where I give a demonstration and more. You can view it here. I didn't make a Youtube video this week, so check it out instead if you'd like. Have a great weekend!
