If there’s one thing that we all have (hopefully), it’s a toothbrush. And while it’s an essential that’s meant to keep our pearly whites, well… pearly, it can also be used for a number of other beauty hacks. Here’s a list…

Tease your hair
 

Tease your hair

A voluminous pouf is an essential for so many hairstyles, and to achieve it, teasing your hair is a necessary step. While a fine toothed comb does the job perfectly, the extremely fine bristles of a toothbrush also help achieve the required volume. Use it exactly as you would use a comb to tease your hair. This hack also helps you get gorgeous beach waves. Spray some texturizing spray after teasing your hair with the toothbrush for optimum results.

Brush your brows

Did you know that a toothbrush can easily double up as a spoolie? This hack is especially helpful if you’re out and about, your brows are misbehaving and you don’t have your spoolie on you, you can just buy a toothbrush and brush them out.

Exfoliate your lips
 

Exfoliate your lips

No one likes dry, chapped lips. And no matter how many layers of lip balm you smear on them to hydrate them, it won’t work if there are dead skin cells blocking it. Use your toothbrush to gently remove these dead skin cells. Wet your toothbrush a little and in gentle, circular motions, exfoliate your lips until they feel soft. Then, hydrate using your trusted lip balm. This is also a crucial step to do before you apply a matte lipstick. It helps achieve fuller, plumper lips without creasing them too much!

Exfoliate your fingertips

No time for manicures? Get yourself one at home! All you need is some Vaseline petroleum jelly and a toothbrush. Apply a small amount of Vaseline around your nail bed and over your fingertips and use a toothbrush to scrub the area gently. You will get rid of all the cuticles, dry skin etc. around your nails and it’ll also provide for a smooth surface for your manicure. This helps remove any dirt particles stuck inside your nails as well.

Highlight your hair

Highlights at the salon cost a bomb but there’s an easy way to achieve them at home.  The messy procedure of using a hair colouring brush to colour smaller sections of your hair can be taxing. This can be simplified by just replacing it with a toothbrush! The application is smoother, quicker and precise.
