Hacks are a pretty common thing nowadays. 

There's beauty hacks, styling hacks, cleaning hacks, hair hacks… the list goes on and on.

But if you have like, a jazillion dollars in your bank account, like Kim Kardashian does, you wouldn't think she'd do this to her pricey designer dress.

The mother-of-two admitted on her app that she used tea bags to dye her dress so the mesh panel matched her skin tone better.

"We had just two hours before we left for Cannes, so we put Earl Grey tea bags in a sink and put the dress in for about 30 minutes to dye it,' she said.

But apparently, the ordeal didn't end there: "It took right up until the red carpet for it to dry. We had to blow-dry it right before I put it on and it was still a little damp — but it worked and it made the mesh a better match to my skin tone."

See, we're not the only ones that use hairdryers on our clothes seconds before we leave the house.


Puffy eyes are never something you want to wake up to… but we'd say the majority of people will be waking up with them on a Monday morning (and every early morning throughout the week too!).

But you don't have to suffer through the problem because there are a few great ways to banish those puffy eyes once and for all.

No more looking like a zombie as you catch the bus to work!

Chill two spoons and press on your eyes

This is easy and won't cost you anything. When you get up, pop a couple of cold spoons into the freezer. Let them chill for a couple of minutes then gently press on your eyes and the puffy areas for a minute or so. The cold  will reduce the puffiness in no time. 


Cotton and salt water

Hot water also works on puffy eyes when mixed with salt. The salt helps draw out the fluid that causes your eyes to swell. Combine a quarter of a teaspoon with two cups of warm water. Then soak the mixture in a cotton ball and press them on to your eyes. 


Tea bags

If you drink tea in the morning, don't toss out the tea bags! Save them for your puffy eyes. Lie down and press the tea bag to the puffy area. It will take about 15 minutes for the swelling to go down but it is an easy way to look fresh faced in the morning. 


Aloe Vera

Aloe vera gel is great for reducing swelling. Use a small dab of the aloe vera under both of your eyes; but use caution to not get gel into your eye socket. Ouch! The gel not only feels good but you will have gorgeous bright eyes in no time!
