We’re well into our second month of the nation-wide lockdown. With only essential supplies being sold at most stores and online sites, we’re fast running out of our basic skincare supplies… sigh. But don’t sulk just yet ‘cause we’ve got some super hacks that’ll make your beauty products last wayyy longer. Yes, really! Scroll down to find out what they are…

 

Water down your shampoo

Water down your shampoo

If you are running out of your favourite shampoo, mix a little water and allow it to rest for up to 24 hours. This will not only ensure that you have more product instantly but it also makes it less harsh on the hair and helps it spread more easily.

 

Scoop the product out

Scoop the product out

And no, we don’t mean dig into the bottle or pot using your fingers. Instead, use an ice cream stick or a clean spoon to scoop every last bit of product from the bottom of the container. This will ensure that there is minimal to no wastage, and you can go a few extra days without repurchasing it.

 

Use just half of your facial wipes

Use just half of your facial wipes

f you use facial wipes to clean your face, then a great way to ensure that they last longer is to simply cut them in half. This means, that one packet of wipes will last you for double the period of time than it would otherwise. But a word of caution – please clean and dry your hands thoroughly before touching a wipe.

 

Add oil to your cream-based moisturiser

Add oil to your cream-based moisturiser

If you’ve almost out of your cream-based moisturiser, simply add a few drops of any face oil to it and give it a good mix. This will ensure that you only need half the usual amount as the oil makes spreading the product a lot easier.
