9 Magical Beauty Hacks Hiding in Your Medicine Cabinet
Ever looked at a bottle of hydrogen peroxide and wondered why is this taking up valuable real estate in my bathroom? Understandable. But if you’re only taking the contents of your medicine cabinet at face value, you’re missing out on a world of possibilities. Whiter teeth, clump-free eyelashes, an even self-tanner application, and more could all be yours, if you’ve figured out these little-known beauty hacks.
Scroll through to find out why the inside of your medicine cabinet is your biggest untapped beauty resource!
Don’t begin your next sunless-tanner application without applying Vaseline first. Smooth it over dry spots like cuticles, elbows, knees, and heels to prevent staining the areas that self-tanner would normally cling to. Use it along your hairline when coloring your hair at home to prevent stains there too.
You can use deodorant to do just about anything, but our favorite non-underarm application has to be nail polish removal. Finding an empty bottle of nail polish remover when all you want is to take your chipped manicure off is the worst. Luckily, a spritz of deodorant works too.
Clumpy mascara and not a spoolie in sight? A toothbrush can get the job done. Bonus: You can also use it to brush unruly eyebrows into submission (and more!).
There are two issues with hairspray. 1) It gets everywhere. 2) And then it stays there. If you’ve got a layer of hairspray coating every surface of your bathroom, forget scrubbing with soap and water—wipe down your mirrors and countertops with rubbing alcohol instead. It cuts right through the stubborn film and leaves surfaces sparkling clean.
