YouTube beauty blogger Wengie gives viewers 11 DIY hacks for summer. She begins with suggesting using a kid’s swimming pool as a floating island in a big pool for when you don’t want to get fully wet. Next she shows how to make a floating drink caddy out of a plastic tub and pool noodles so you don’t have to get out of the pool to get a drink.
Her next hack is to make a body scrub with olive oil, sugar, and honey. She shaves, applies it to her legs, then shaves again for a close, smooth shave. Wengie’s next hack is to make a DIY self tanner using cocoa powder and body lotion. Next she shows how to make a tan tattoo by drawing a cute shape on your body with sunscreen. She then suggests applying loose translucent powder to your face through a tissue to soak up oil from sunscreen or just the heat.
Wengie then suggests rubbing toothpaste onto bug bites to sooth the itchiness. She puts water in a jar, then adds lavender and eucalyptus oils, lemon and lime slices, and rosemary sprigs and tops it off with a floating candle. Her next hack shows how to DIY glowing lanterns.
Next, Wengie suggests putting your belongings into a garbage bag and then into your beach bag to protect your phone and other stuff from the sand and water. Her final hack is to clip sandals to your beach bag with a carabiner so you don’t lose them and so you don’t have to carry them as you walk along the beach.
