Besides leaving your body smooth and supple, lotion can answer to both our fashion and beauty needs. Read on to learn more about these hacks.
1. Lotion can set your hair.
If you’re a fan of heatless waves, try this trick: In a spray bottle, pour a half cup of water and two squeezes of lotion. Shake until everything is mixed, spray on the ends of the hair, and tie into two pigtail braids. Let it set for at least three hours or sleep on it. Unravel the plaits to reveal boho, relaxed curls.
2. It can tame cowlicks and flyaways.
For a perfect 10 ‘do, apply a scant amount of lotion on baby hair. Get rid of flyways by rubbing some lotion on the ends and twisting the tips towards your neck.
3. It will make your scent last longer.
Smell good all day by dabbing lotion on the key pulse points before spraying on perfume. Moisture helps the scent stick to your skin.
4. You can use it as a sub for shaving cream.
When you’re out of shaving cream, the emollient properties of lotion can help the razor slide smoothly on your legs, preventing ingrown and nicks.
5. Or as a makeshift makeup remover.
If you desperately want to take off stubborn makeup, but you don’t have a makeup remover within reach, lotion can work as a sub. You can also use this to tone down a too strong blush or erase eyeliner mishaps.
6. It can keep hair dye from your face.
Are you planning to color your hair by yourself? To prevent the dye from staining your face, rub lotion on the areas near the hairline.
7. It can be an instant shoe polish.
Add luster to an old shoe by wiping lotion on the surface. Its moisturizing content also helps restore old leather.
