I love new beauty products so much, that when something comes out I always want to try it. Unfortunately if something doesn't work to my liking, it ends up sticking around in the back of my bathroom closet for ages.
Fortunatelty there are some pretty useful alternative ways to use these beauty products. These tips are a great way to use up old products that aren't you favorites. It will help keep the clutter down because you won't have to buy those items that you have a beauty alternative for!
1. Lip Balm
Lip Balm has several great alternative uses. You can mix it with a little shimmery eyeshadow to make a highlighter that looks great on your cheeks. You can also use lip balm in place of a cutile cream to trim your cuticles with ease. Finally it is amazing for putting over small cuts from shaving, or overtop of red acne before applying makeup.
Hairspray has a ton of uses! It is great to grab when you see little fruit flies or mosquitos in the air, and it kills bugs quick. If you are a fan of side walk chalk, you can use hairspray to seal in your creations. Finally it is great at pet hair removal, if you spray a little on a paper towel and wipe it over furniture of fabric, pet hair comes off easy!
Pomade is great for helping your brows stay in place, doubling as a brow wax. It does the same trick for stubborn baby hairs around the hairline. Finally some of the best pomade is often used in place of wax to unstick a stubborn zipper.
Deodorants are something I always have 12 unfished tubes of. It is great to swipe on feet before wearing heels to prevent blisters, and you can rub some on inner thighs to prevent chaffing. Pro tip: use the white, non gel kind for these hacks like the powder fresh secret brand or similar.
If you have a stubborn scuffs on your fav shoes, grab a smilar colored nail polish and cover it up. You can also use clear nail polish to cover cheap jewlery so it wont turn your skin green. Clear nail polish can also be applied over the run in your tights to keep it from getting worse.
Vasoline has many uses all over the home. It can fix a squeaking drawer or door with ease. It is also great for removing makeup stains like foundation from clothes, and can be uses to polish shoes in a pinch!
And there you have it! Dig those old used products out and give them new life with these 6 beauty hack! Cheers
