8 Beauty Products That Do Double Duty
When trying to save money it is really great to have beauty products that do double duty. You can spend less on beauty items or use items that you are already by finding things that will work just as well. Take a look at these beauty products and what you can use them for other than their intended use. As always, if you have very sensitive skin, make sure to test the area you are applying to make sure it will work for you.
1. Double Duty Product: Hand Cream
What else it can be used for: Hair Cream. Skip buying expensive hair styling lotion and use a bit of hand cream to tame those frizzies.
2. Double Duty Product: Baby Powder
What else it can be used for: Dry Shampoo. On those days where time is not on your side, just use a bit of this at your roots and brush out. Your hair will feel and look fresher.
3. Double Duty Product: Conditioner
What else it can be used for: Use it to shave your legs and underarms. It not only provides a protective layer between your razor and skin, but will add a bit of moisture to your skin as well.
4. Double Duty Product: Liquid foundation
What else it can be used for: Eye shadow lid primer. Just put a little on your lids to get your eye shadow to stick better and crease less
5. Double Duty Product: Eye shadow
What else it can be use for: Mix some loose powder with a clear coat nail polish and create your own shade. You can also use it for creating spooky Halloween makeup effects anywhere on the face.
6. Double Duty Product: Bronzer
What else it can be used for: Eye shadow. For a natural and neutral day look, just use it as a shadow. This is a great way to use it year round rather than tossing it out at the end of summer.
7. Double Duty Product: Epsom Salts
What else it can be used for: You are probably used to using it as a foot soak with warm water, but you can mix some with lotion and create a body scrub as well.
8. Double Duty Beauty Product: Lip Balm
What else it can be used for: Use your lip balm (the non-sticky kind) as a cuticle cream or to sooth your nose when you have a cold. Just don’t apply it directly to your nails or nose. Use a q-tip to avoid contaminating it with germs.
