Medicine Cabinet Beauty Fixes
(BlackDoctor.org) — Shampoo as makeup remover? Toothpaste as zit cream? Your medicine cabinet offers tons of quick beauty fixes — without spending a dime. If you’re in a pinch, here’s a list of home remedies you can use as a temporary substitute.
Shampoo as makeup remover: It’s not ideal, but this will do until you can make it to your beauty supply store to pick up makeup remover. Baby shampoo with water will help remove thick layers of makeup from your face, and it won’t irritate your eyes.
Conditioner as shaving cream: You may have forgotten to put shaving cream on your shopping list, but no worries. You probably have conditioner, which will do the job for now. Its moisturizing ingredients should help the razor glide over your skin smoothly and help avoid razor burn. Body wash is also a common emergency remedy.
Clear nail polish to ward off eczema: Ever have eczema outbreaks on your stomach when you wear your favorite jeans? Painting clear nail polish onto the back of the buttons on your denim gear can keep your skin from being irritated. People have an allergy to nickel.
Petroleum jelly as a soothing agent: Washing your hands with rings on your fingers can cause soap to build up under the jewelry, which leads to skin irritation. A quick fix for this is applying petroleum jelly at night to the affected area. To get to the root of the problem, take off your rings when you wash your hands!
