If you are interested to know some of the unusual yet very nifty beauty uses for your conditioner, continue reading. Doing so will make you realize just how truly versatile your trusted brand of conditioner is!
1. As a Shaving Cream
Just because you ran out of your favorite shaving cream doesn’t mean that shaving your legs, underarms or any other part of your body where there’s unwanted hair should be skipped, leaving you feeling less pretty and confident.
Did you know that your favorite conditioner can take the place of your shaving cream? Many women swear that it’s actually so much better than shaving cream in giving a close shave and also softening the skin.
2. As a Makeup Remover
Every beauty-conscious woman knows that removing makeup before hitting the hay is one of the most important beauty routines around since it can help keep at bay clogged pores that can easily lead to blackheads and pimples.
Just in case you find the bottle of your makeup remover empty, do not panic because there’s something that can be used in its place, and that’s your trusted conditioner. Yup, it’s just as good for getting rid of makeup as the real thing.
You don’t have to put a lot of conditioner on a cotton pad to see results — just a tiny dollop of it will do the trick. It is a good idea, however, to wash your face afterwards to make sure that no unfavorable chemical stays around.
3. As a Makeup Brush Softener
Speaking of makeup, you may clean your makeup brushes with your trusted conditioner. Just like your very own tresses, the bristles of your makeup brushes can also be softened effectively by a hair conditioner.
Certainly, it’s a must for you to each time use makeup brushes that are not only clean, but also soft to keep your skin from ending up irritated. Some of the most sensitive skin of the body can be found on your face, like your eyelids.
4. As a Cuticle Cream
Fond of giving yourself a manicure at home? If you are not so happy with using a cuticle cream because it’s so greasy, then you may simply reach for your much-loved conditioner and use it as a replacement for cuticle cream.
Just a little conditioner will let you push back your cuticles without much effort. And because a hair conditioner is not as greasy as a regular cuticle cream, your at-home manicure sessions will surely go as smoothly as possible.
5. As a Skin Moisturizer
It’s no secret that keeping the skin hydrated very well is the secret to slowing down the process of aging. It’s also the step to take if you don’t want your skin to end up scaly, flaky and itchy. In other words, moisturizing is a must!
Just in case you find yourself with an empty bottle of your trusted skin moisturizer, you can count on your conditioner for hydrating your skin until such time that you are able to get yourself a new bottle of moisturizer.
Right after taking your shower and before towel drying your body, smooth a little conditioner all over. Not only will your skin feel soft and smooth, but also smell terrific — well, depending on the fragrance of your conditioner.
