No matter how lazy you feel at the end of a tiring day, make sure to remove all your makeup before going to bed. To make this easy, we suggest that you keep makeup remover or makeup-removing towelettes right at your bedside. This will save you the excruciating pain of standing at your sink and using a lot of effort to wash all your makeup off. This is one of those extremely valuable beauty hacks for all the lazy girls out there as going to sleep without removing your makeup may lead to harmful infections and ugly skin breakouts. However, we suggest that you only use this option on rare occasions. It’s best to take the time to fully remove your makeup at the end of the night.

We all have whimsical phases in our lives when we want to make a certain look happen, but may not be willing to put in the time. This can be especially true when trying to achieve those perfect curly locks. We have an easy procedure that will help you achieve your purpose. All you have to do is make a loose braid before going to bed. Doing this will give you perfect mermaid-like waves when you wake up in the morning. However if you have thin hair, make sure that your braid is loose as this will give you softer waves.

18. T shirt instead of a towel

Dry your hair with a cotton T shirt instead of a towel, and see how quickly your hair dries. This is because the cotton in a T shirt is a lot more absorbent than a towel.

19. Longer hair in minutes

The mind of an introvert works in the weirdest fashion. They are overly sensitive, sentimental and have tons of thoughts running through their minds, but at the same time, for reasons unknown even to themselves, they like nothing better than to stay aloof. Being one such self-confessed introvert, I have always loved putting my thoughts into words. Good books and music with moving lyrics work as my Muse. Children and things abounding with innocence strengthen my faith in goodness. Contemporary Indian works of literature make me a happy bookworm, and songs by Coldplay brighten up my day like nothing else! Here's hoping you will enjoy reading my posts, for you can trust an introvert to be a keen observer and a very devoted blogger!
