How to Make Your Skincare Stretch: Repurposing Your Fave Products

How to Make Your Skincare Stretch: Repurposing Your Fave Products
by Truly Beauty

Using one skincare product for one purpose is soooo last century!

Repurposing skincare is a new trend everyone's adopting for a less waste and sustainable beauty routine. Wanna jump on the bandwagon?

It turns out, you really only need a handful of beauty products to fulfil a variety of purposes.

Here, we show you how to put your fave products and Truly products to several uses.



Face Serums

Also Work as: Body Moisturizer

Just because a serum says it's for the face, doesn't mean you can't use it anywhere else. Sure you can!

Serums work in different ways. Some are particularly hydrating, others offer anti-aging benefits like reducing the appearance of fine lines, and some treat blemishes. Whatever your facial serum does, feel free to use it on the rest of your body too and reap the benefits of doing so!

Of course, slathering on serum from head to toe isn't going to come cheap. That's why we only recommend multi-purposing it as a body cream if you've got nothing else available.

Facial Cleansers 

Also Work as: Makeup Brush Cleaners 

Did you know dirty makeup brushes can cause breakouts, worsen oily skin, and even lead to infections?

Yup, that's why it's soooo important to keep them as squeaky clean as possible. In other words, wash them after every use or at least, once a week. Besides keeping your skin healthy, your foundation and mascara will glide on much more easily when your makeup brushes are clean and free of old makeup residue. 

And the best way to clean them? With your favorite daily facial cleanser!

Face washes work great as beauty tool cleaners. In addition to your makeup brushes, try cleaning your skincare applicators with it too. Makeup artists swear by this trick.

Face Masks

Also Work as: Foot Masks

Are you seeking intense hydration for your poor, parched feet?

You don't need a special foot mask or lotion to treat dry skin. Just reuse your fave face mask or even your go-to sheet mask. Either works!

Your feet endure a lot each day. They work hard, therefore they deserve a little love and attention. We can't think of any better way to do that than by slathering them in a luxurious face mask.

Especially if your mask contains antioxidants and moisturizing ingredients like vitamin C, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, shea butter, coconut oil, or collagen. These are great ingredients for hydrating, repairing, and smoothing dry skin.

Lip Oils

Also Work as: Cuticle Oils & Hair Care Oils

When you've got lip oil in your beauty basket or cabinet, why bother searching for a cuticle oil too? Your lip oil offers all the hydration and strengthening effects your cuticles need to look and feel healthy.

Just make sure the oil you're using is enriched with nourishing ingredients like aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, and coconut oil. 

You don't need to apply much. Just dab a small amount of the oil onto clean, dry cuticles. Massage it in and leave it to soak in. Your cuticles should look nourished in no time! 

You can also use the same oil to treat dry strands and split ends. Just rub a few drops into the ends of your hair and leave it to repair!

Multipurpose our: GLOAT Big Juicy Lip Oil.


CBD Face Oils

Also Work as: De-Puffing Under Eye Creams 

CBD is a natural antioxidant proven to bring down inflammation and calm irritated skin. Loaded with vitamins A, D, and E, and essential fatty acids, CBD cleanses, exfoliates, and rejuvenates the complexion. It also aids acne-prone skin by balancing high levels of pro-acne agents in the cells.

Nowadays, most people incorporate CBD into their skincare routine. It's becoming just as essential and common as sunscreen.

It's also ideal for sensitive skin thanks to its potent anti-inflammatory effects. In fact, it's suitable for all skin types and can treat a wide variety of issues including irritation, pimples, premature aging, and puffiness.

The next time your eyes look puffy, dab a little CBD oil around the area to bring down the swelling. Even dermatologists approve!

Multipurpose our: CBD Jelly Facial Serum.



Also Work as: Exfoliators

This isn't the case for all toners, but it is if your toner contains exfoliating acids like glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or lactic acid.

You don't need a conventional sugar scrub to enjoy the benefits of exfoliation. Alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids like the ones mentioned above work just as effectively at sloughing away dead skin cells and promoting clear, smooth skin.

As with physical exfoliation, only use an exfoliating toner once a week to prevent irritation. Overdoing it could lead to redness, flaking, and dryness.

Multipurpose our: CBD Jelly Toning Solution.


Retinol Serums 

Also Work as: Anti-Aging Night Creams

Nights creams really aren't necessary - even more so if they're not loaded with active ingredients like retinol, hyaluronic acid, or other high-performing skincare staples.

Instead of wasting your money on night creams, just use your retinol serum instead. It'll work harder and provide more visible results in the long run.

Another plus point about retinol: it can also make dark circles disappear. That's because the vitamin A derivative improves skin texture and discoloration. 

In addition to saving money on night creams, you can skip splurging on expensive eye creams! It's a win-win!

Multipurpose our: Purple Rain Glow Serum.
