We all know that toothpaste is used generally to keep our teeth nice, clean and healthy. But have your ever thought about what other uses the toothpaste in your bathroom could have?
The toothpaste contains lots of ingredients that could sooth and heal.
Since you probably never thought about it, we’ll be showing you a few beauty hacks that can be managed using the toothpaste.
Beauty Hacks Using Toothpaste
Handles Insect Bites
If you have been bitten by an insect, you know how hurtful it is. Using a little toothpaste, the inflammation that often follows can be reduced, along with the itching.
Blackheads are skin disasters that often happen as a result of clogged skin, resulting in the inability of sebum to be released. These blackheads can be gotten rid of using toothpaste. You do not need the expensive products. Simply apply some toothpaste at the tip of your nose and spend some time covering the bridge of your nose with the substance. Next, wait for about ten minutes before rubbing off gently with water.
We know how you may have battled with acne for a long while, getting this product and that product when you had a toothpaste in your bathroom all the while.
With a toothpaste, your acne can dry out. What’s even more special about this is that no marks are left behind. The face automatically looks and feels fresh and acne-free.
All you have to do is apply a small amount of toothpaste onto the acne and allow it to dry. After the toothpaste is dry, wash it off using warm water. Keep doing it thrice every week and in no time, you’ll start to see the results.
With toothpaste, you don’t have to spend so much time and money trying to get a manicure and pedicure. Simply apply some toothpaste onto your nails and using an old toothbrush, scrub at it for a few seconds before washing away. In no time, you’ll come to adore your shiny little nails.
To reduce under eye puffiness
If you’re worried because you can’t go out looking all puffed up, a toothpaste can help. Simply apply some toothpaste onto a blotting paper and dab your under eyes with it. In less than five minutes, the desired effect should be achieved.
Gets rid of early aging signs
You could easily make a mask that could help get rid of the early aging signs, leaving your skin glowing. To make the mask, you will need a tablespoon of baking soda, water and a teaspoon of toothpaste.
Mix all the ingredients together so that you get a consistency that is thick and can be applied to your face easily. Leave the mask on your face for a while so that it dries out completely. After it has dried out, wash off and dry your face with a clean face towel.
Repeat the process at least three times every week until you start to notice a significant difference.
Same way a toothpaste will whiten your teeth, it will whiten your skin too as it contains whitening properties that are not restricted to the teeth alone. To use on your skin, you’ll have to make a mask out of tomato pulp /juice and toothpaste. Mix a teaspoon of the pulp with a tablespoon of toothpaste and apply on your skin. Leave the mash on for about fifteen to twenty minutes before washing. You will notice how different your skin will look.
You could employ this property for getting rid of sun tans too.
Removal of unwanted hair
You could get unwanted hair on your face, or even your legs. Sometimes we shave it off, but you could try using a toothpaste together with some sugar and lemon juice to get rid of the hair and afterwards, your skin will be smooth.
Getting rid of dark spots
We already mentioned that as a result of the whitening properties of toothpaste, it is able to do the same thing on the skin. If you have dark spots, you could get rid of them with the toothpaste mixed with tomato juice.
Toothpaste For Dark Lines
Dark lines are not a pleasant sight and even though we can cover it all we want with makeup, we cannot do that forever. Thankfully, using toothpaste, you can get rid of them.
Getting rid of Whiteheads
Blackheads are not the only things that can be handled with toothpaste, apparently, whiteheads can too. Simply mix a little water into a tablespoon of toothpaste and using a brush, brush your skin, concentrating on areas with the whiteheads.
Toothpaste For Oily Skin
Oily skin can be a source of discomfort to some and could potentially ruin your perfect makeup if you do not handle it. With a toothpaste, mixed with salt and water, you can apply onto your skin, leave for a while before rinsing off. You’ll notice that your skin isn’t as oil any longer.
Prevent split ends
If you’re having a bad hair season with dry, frizzy hair and split ends, a hair mask with Toothpaste can help.
All you’ll need is a mashed banana paste and a tablespoon of toothpaste. Mix the ingredients together in a bowl properly such that it forms a thick paste without lumps.
After the mixing, apply the paste to your split ends and if need be – your entire hair. Let it sit for thirty minutes and then wash off the paste with mild shampoo.
Use the remedy at least once every month and you’ll start to notice a big change in how your hair appears.
Lighten and Soften lips
We already mentioned that the whitening properties of the toothpaste was not restricted to just the teeth. The toothpaste can do a good lightening job on your lips too.
All you need is a teaspoon of honey and a teaspoon of toothpaste. Mix the ingredients together in a bowl so that the paste is thick and without lumps.
Next, using a toothbrush, brush your lips so that the lips are exfoliated a bit and blood circulation is encouraged.
Using same toothbrush, apply the paste to your lips and rinse off after a while.
