Facial oils have long been known to work wonders for our complexion. However, not because it says that it’s for you face, it can no longer do wonders on the other parts of your body. Make your oils more useful by trying these alternative uses.
- Callous and Cuticle Softener
Just a single drop of oils like tsubaki and camellia oil on your cuticles can already make your hands look more polished even if they’re ragged from the cold air. The same thing applies with any callouses on your feet. Applying a few drops oil will not just make it feel better, it’ll also softens callouses overtime, making it easier for them to be removed.
- Split Ends Mender
The best way to keep your strand hydrated and seal off some split ends, without experiencing any product build-up, is to run a drop or two of oil in your hands and gently coat your tips. This will work as a conditioning treatment for your hair, resulting to a more polished locks.
- Makeup Remover
Repeatedly rubbing your waterproof eye makeup with your facial cleanser is not just ineffective, but also super drying to the skin. Free yourself from such struggle by gently rubbing some facial oil around your eyes to easily melt your makeup, making it easier for you to wash everything away.
- Lip Balm Primer
While it may seem weird that you need to prime your lip balm, this is actually necessary for anyone who constantly reapplies their balm to keep their lips from drying out. Remedy this by patting a small amount of facial oil into your lips every morning, then sealing it with your favourite lip balm. With this, your lips will feel a lot better without the need to reapply your balm every now and then.
- Brow Groomer
If you’re blessed with a thicket set of eyebrows, then you’d often find yourself wanting to groom them without dealing with the sticky, stiff feeling of brow gels – and this is where facial oils play their part. Just a little dab of facial oil across your eyebrows will do the trick in making your brows appear soft and shiny as you groom them the way you want to.
- Eye Cream
Facial oils that failed to meet your standards doesn’t need to be immediately thrown out the garbage, for they might work as your new eye cream. Also, you don’t have to worry about the oil looking like tears that have pooled underneath your eyes since the moisture in the oil will naturally sink into your skin, making the delicate area well hydrated.
