Remember coming home from that amazing night out and waking up with the not-so-amazing blisters your new heels gave you? How about those surprising breakouts and their always inopportune timing?
Desperate times may call for desperate measures, but how about we leave desperation behind and give you some practical tips that can help you in a pinch!
Sit tight and find out how many of the everyday products you already own can help you in times of need!
- Use an old toothbrush to clean jewelry. You might now have time to swing my the jewelers to get your diamond cleaned, but do you have a spare toothbrush? Not only can a toothbrush leave your jewelry bright and shiny, but (bonus) it can also act as a lip exfoliator if you add a little petroleum jelly and sugar!
- Use mascara to cover up roots. Sorry blondes but this one is for the brunettes. If you have dark hair, instead of panicking when you forget to schedule a touch-up before an important event, use your mascara to touch up any gray hairs in last-minute situations.
- Deodorant can prevent blisters. Instead of trying to break in your new heels by pairing them with your husband’s socks as you vacuum your living room, how about reaching for your handy-dandy deodorant and applying some to the heels of your feet before heading out the door. Much more discrete if you ask me!
- Use shaving cream to remove stains. So your new white carpet has suffered the wrath of the good ol’ foundation spill? Worry not, super shaving cream to the rescue! All you have to do is dab a little on the stain, let it settle in, and then blot the shaving cream and the stain away.
- Use Neosporin as zit cream. It’s the night before your big day and what do you see when you look in the mirror? Well, a huge zit of course! Stop, don’t you dare poke the beast! Instead, use a little Neosporin as a spot treatment. Its healing formula kills bacteria without drying the skin and calms inflammation.
So there you have it! You might not be able to control the inevitable, but you can avoid a freak-out or two…
