5) If you’re having trouble removing your lipstick and eyeshadow, dab a little olive oil on your lips and eyes and wipe off with a tissue. It’s super effective.
6) Spare buttons lying around? Put them to work by using them to keep pairs of earrings together.
7) Coconut oil isn’t just a delicious addition to recipes – it’s a great hair mask AND skin moisturiser. Keep a jar on hand at all times.
8) Run out of blotting pads? No dramas – just use coffee filters instead.
9) Do you wish your perfume would linger longer? Make sure you smell divine all day by applying Vaseline to your skin before spraying.
10) No dry shampoo? No worries! Use a little talcum powder on your roots to absorb excess oil, then brush it out.
11) If you’re lusting after longer lashes, apply olive oil to yours each night before bed. It helps to strengthen and grow them. Who would have thought?
12) Bananas aren’t just a healthy snack; their peels can be used to soothe itchy and swollen skin.
13) Dealing with pesky lint balls on your shirt? Grab a clean eyebrow brush to lift them right off.
14) Can’t deal with that mess of headphones and wires in your cupboard? Use a hair clip to keep them from tangling.
