3 unexpected ways to use your face cream
Find out why face cream is one of the most multi-purpose skincare products that you own!
While quick weekend breaks are always fun and a great way to recharge, it doesn’t always let you bring all of your travel skincare essentials with you (let’s be honest, who can fit all of their beauty products into a carry-on bag the size of a large handbag?!). Next time you jet off to another city for a couple of days and only have room in your suitcase for one skincare product, pack your favorite face cream – preferably one that has decent SPF protection like Aquasource SPF 15 or Blue Therapy Multi-Defender SPF 25. You’ll be able to use your cream 3 different ways during your getaway!
Transform your face cream into BB Cream
All you need to make your own BB Cream is face cream and a little bit of foundation (tip: bring a sample foundation with you to save more space in your suitcase!). Dab a fingertip’s worth of cream onto the back of your hand, and an equal amount of foundation. Blend the two together with a brush and apply to your face. While this combination won’t rival the BB or CC Cream you use at home, it will still give you a beautiful dewy finish!
Use face cream to tame flyaways
Couldn’t bring an aerosol hairspray on your trip? That’s okay – your face cream will come to the rescue! Tame flyaways by putting a small coin’s worth of it in the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and lightly smooth it on your hair, starting from the ends and working your way up (this helps avoid greasy roots!).
Remove your makeup with face cream
While it’s not ideal to take your makeup off with face cream every single night, it’s a great solution when you don’t have your favorite oil cleanser with you. Apply the cream all over your face and gently remove it with a tissue, being extra gentle around the eye area.
Who knew you could use face cream for so many different things?
