I dare any of you out there to say with a straight face that you’ve never been caught on the bogs without loo paper. The awkward shuffle to the other bathroom, the cry for help at home, the public toilet ‘stranger in the cubicle next door sliding a roll under the door’ solution, you haven’t lived until you have felt the fear.
Sometimes the things we run out of around the house also interfere with the odious task of looking in tip-top shape. That’s where these simple beauty hacks come in handy, your cheat sheet on how to use household items as beauty products. These below are courtesy of Cosmopolitan:
Wash your face with olive oil
Like attracts like, so the olive oil you wash your face with will act as a magnet to the oil that’s on your skin and in your pores, drawing it out, and leaving you with a gorgeous glow and super clean skin.
Blot your face with a coffee filter
They’re made out of similar ingredients as blotting papers, so stash a few in your purse if it’s hot out and pat yourself down when you need to reduce shine.
Use cold green tea bags to decrease puffiness under your eyes
The quickest way to de-puffing and tightening your under-eye skin is to apply a cold, caffeine-based product, like two cold green-tea bags, under your eyes for five or six minutes.
Lather your legs in conditioner if you run out of shaving cream
The purpose of shaving cream is to give you a hydrating cushion between the razor and your skin. So if you ever run out of shaving cream and are in a pinch (or just want to save a few bucks), use your hair conditioner to lather up your legs pre-shave.
Make your own body scrub with body wash and raw brown sugar
Brown sugar isn’t just good for baking. You can also use it as a body exfoliator. Just take your favorite body wash and pour some brown sugar into the bottle, and then scrub away.
