Plenty Of Alternative Uses For Baby Powder

Probably like most of people you haven’t notice how much things you have that you used only once, so sit for a minute and take a look around the room. There will be probably 100 different things.

For instance, you can use eggshells to whiten your laundry, hairspray to protect your leather shoes etc.

However, baby powder can do much more than simply protect your baby from diaper rash.
Moreover, it has countless other uses, and here are some of them:

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. Lipstick undercoat

Baby powder can improve the staying power of lipstick. After applying a layer of color, take a tissue and put it over your lips, brush a coat of baby powder over the tissue and then apply a second layer of color to your lips. Voila — your lips will look brilliant till your next kiss and beyond!

5. Prevents bleeding

If you sprinkle baby powder on small cuts and scrapes, it seals the wound and can help stop the bleeding.

6. Prevents thigh chafing

Wearing ill-fitting tights can sometimes feel like you’re being given a massage with a wire brush. If you find yourself with this problem, spread baby powder on your legs before getting dressed in order to minimize uncomfortable rubbing.

7. Cooling effect

Sprinkle baby powder in your bed sheets on hot summer nights. It will cool you down, even without air conditioning.

8. Alternative deodorant

Baby powder is also a great deodorant alternative. It is guaranteed aluminum – free and has an unbeatable price.

9. Waxing soother

All women will agree that waxing is very painful. To help ease the pain of waxing, you can apply some powder to your skin before you wax. This will prevent the wax from sticking to your skin, but still will be effective for removing hair.

10. Eyelash lengthener

Did you know that there is a trick for you to lengthen your eyelashes? All you should do is to apply a base coat of mascara, then apply some baby powder with an eyeshadow brush to your lashes before applying a final coat of mascara.
