Not just for bums ...

If you look around your room carefully, you'll probably see a thousand  different things that you've only used once or will probably throw away. It's such a waste, seeing as most of our day-to-day products actually have many different uses. You can use hairspray to protect leather shoes, eggshells to whiten your laundry, and baby powder for so much more than just refreshening a baby's bum!  Below are some useful tips and tricks.

1. Greasy hair

Sometimes you just don't have time to wash your hair. But going out with a greasy coiffure can be quite  embarrassing and looks dirty. Simply, sprinkle some baby powder on your hairline before going to bed and it will soak up the excess oil overnight. When you wake up the next morning, just comb your hair out like normal.


2. Face powder

Powder your face before applying makeup. Baby powder works as a great primer and helps your foundation stay put. You can completely replace expensive conventional face power with baby powder, seeing as it essentially has the same function and leaves your complexion looking matte.


3. Aftershave

Baby powder also makes a great aftershave. It preserves your skin's moisture and soothes any redness that comes from the razor.


4. Eyelash lengthener

To lengthen your eyelashes, apply a base coat of mascara, then use an eyeshadow brush to apply a layer of baby powder to your lashes before applying a final coat of mascara. You'll be ready to star in the next makeup ad.


5. Fuller eyebrows

Some woman struggle with extremely thin eyebrows. To ensure your face is given a worthy frame, brush a bit of baby powder into your eyebrows before applying eyebrow powder. Your brows will end up looking full and healthy.
