23 Secret Uses For Your Everyday Beauty Products
We’re all about a good makeup multi-tasker. Cream blush, lipstick, and concealer top our list of makeup must-haves, but that’s just the low-hanging fruit when it comes to beauty products with bonus benefits. Many of your trusted everyday beauty essentials have so much more to offer—beyond the realm of beauty. Raid your medicine cabinets and cosmetic cases, because we’re going to give you an alternative use (or two) for everything from your body oil to your eye shadow brushes.

When your polish is a mess and you’re fresh out of remover (why don’t they sell the stuff in bulk?), use perfume to remove your polish. Yes, it will be the most expensive nail polish remover you’ve ever used, but desperate times. We recommend tapping into your collection of samples that you’ll never end up wearing for this one.
What can’t coconut oil do? Pretty sure the answer to that question is nothing. Exhibit A: coconut oil makes an excellent ointment for cuts and scrapes, thanks to its anti-bacterial and healing properties.
Kill germs and whiten teeth with hydrogen peroxide. Just a one-minute swish with 3% hydrogen peroxide (that’s the kind you probably already have in your medicine cabinet) will leave your mouth feeling clean and your teeth sparkling. Plus, it doesn’t burn like Listerine.
