We all have that bottle of talc sitting right at the back of our vanity, don’t we?

And chances are, we use it only once in a blue moon! But, what if we told you that talc is the product you needed? How you ask?

Read on ladies; as we bring you 4 unconventional uses of talc that are bound to leave you surprise. Once you get to know about these hacks, there is no looking back!

#1 Use it to reduce inflammation
 

#1 Use it to reduce inflammation

If you’re suffering from irritated skin, use a talc powder. A good talc works as a skin soothing agent. It calms your skin and reduces the redness and inflammation. Just sprinkle a bit of talcum powder on the affected area and you will instantly feel the difference. If the irritation continues and your skin still burns, see a dermatologist immediately. 

#2 Use it as a dry shampoo

If you didn’t already know this, talc also works as the best replacement for a dry shampoo. The tiny particles of talc absorb and remove all the excess oil on your scalp and make them look fresh and washed. All you need to do is take some talc on your palm and thoroughly rub it on your scalp. Make sure you don’t take too much of it!

#3 Use it to bake your face

Next time you run out of your loose makeup powder, don’t fret. Use talc powder instead to set your makeup. And guess what? You can even use it to bake your face to set the areas that crease out the most. All you have to do is use a face brush to make sure the talc is applied evenly.

#4 Use it to add volume to your lashes

This hack, without a doubt, is by far our favourite! Use talc to add the missing volume to your flat lashes. Add some talc to your lashes using a clean mascara wand. Next, apply a generous coat of mascara. This will add volume to your lashes and make them look denser.

P.S: If you are looking for a talc that is both safe and smells good then we suggest you try the Ponds Starlight Talc as it is smooth and gentle on the skin, lasts up to over six hours and smells great too.
