Do you ever wonder what to do with old toothbrushes after you are done using them? I always feel like throwing them away is such a waste. Once you disinfect them, they are a super useful beauty tool! Here are 5 ways to re-purpose that old tooth brush to assist you in your beauty routine.

  1. Tame flyaways: Spray the bristles of the toothbrush and then use it to smooth any flyaway hairs. You can also do this to fix your eyebrows!
  2. Lip exfoliator: Before you put on lip balm, use the brush to scrub the dead skin off of your lips!
  3. Tease your hair: Use the toothbrush to tease your hair. Keep it in your purse to have a teasing brush on the go!
  4. Clean under nails and your cuticles: Use your old toothbrush to get the prettiest and cleanest nails on the block.
  5. De-clump mascara: After you apply mascara, use the toothbrush to separate your lashes.

Can you think of any other ways to use an old toothbrush in your beauty routine? Comment them below!

Mascara is a girl’s best friend and most powerful asset. There are common mistakes that every girl makes when dealing with mascara. Want to know what they are and how to amend them? Read on!

Mistake #1: Using Expired Products

After about 3 months, you should pull an ‘N Sync and say “Bye Bye Bye” to your mascara. When it is this old it starts to grow bacteria inside the tube and on the wand. This can cause you to have red, itchy eyes or even pinkeye! By this time the mascara will probably be dried out anyway, so it just makes since to replace it!images (3)

Mistake #2: Pumping the Wand
When you are getting ready to apply your mascara and you pump the wand in and out of the tube to coat it, you are actually adding air to the tube which dries out the mascara! It also causes it to clump and even flake. Try and dip the wand as little as possible to avoid drying it out as long as possible!

Mistake #3: Not Curling Your Lashes
Mascara will give your lashes a lift, but to get that red carpet look, you will need to grab your lash curler. Make sure that you use the curler BEFORE you apply mascara. Curling afterward can cause breakage! Yikes!

 

Now that you know how to care for your mascara, bat those beautiful lashes ladies!
