We’ve just about used Coconut oil in every way imaginable, and have no issue swapping out our blush for that cherry flavored, red colored lip balm we love! So what about other substitutions? You are in luck! There are plenty of other ways to make what you already have in you beauty cabinets multi-functional. Take a look below:
Yep good ole’ crisco. It’s meant to be used in the kitchen, typically for baking, but why not use it as an all purpose moisturizer. It’s perfect! And for all of you vegans out there, this is great for you because it’s vegetable shortening, not lard! Just like my love for nightly vaseline facial moisturizing, crisco is just as good. No worries you won’t wake up with quarter size pimples, the formula is meant to lay on the skin and seal in the natural oils your skin produces, it won’t penetrate enough to create buildup and acne.
2. Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel-to-Powder
Run out of your primer, but have some anti-chafing formula laying around? This is a great, and affordable alternative. In fact many celebrity makeup artists swear by it. The dimethicone in the monistat acts as a silicone base, making the application of makeup smoother, and gives your skin a pore blurring effect. The best part about it, is most of the top selling primers on the market are beyond expensive, and Monistat anti-chafing gel-to-powder is a third of the price.
Want to plump up those lips? The Orajel formula offers the same effects that a lip plumper does, plus you get the added minty twist. It’s not a complete alternative, as most reviewers prefer the texture of an actual lip plumper, but if you are in a bind, try it out!
4. Apple Cider Vinegar
Ran out of your favorite facial toner? Run to your kitchen. Take 1 teaspoon of ACV per half cup of water, if you want add a few drops of essential oil for scent. On cleansed skin, the apple cider vinegar mixture will act as both an astringent and toner!
