Make The Most Of Your Facial
When the bristles of your electric toothbrush get worn out, they may be ineffective on your teeth but they make a great facial message for your face. The vibration helps open pores so the cleanser can remove more dirt, oil and makeup. Toothbrush manufacturers recommend replacing brush heads every 3 to 6 months so don’t just throw it away, put it to good use. Be sure to clearly mark the brush head you use on your face.
How To Give Yourself A Toothbrush Facial
Be sure to choose a brush head that is complexly worn out, it must be a soft brush; otherwise you will end up scratching your face. Homemade or store bought, it doesn’t matter what cleanser you use.
Wet your face with warm water using a cloth or your hands, dip the wet brush in the cleanser, turn the toothbrush on and scrub away. Only scrub for 30 seconds to one minute the first time, your face will be pink and tingly. Rinse with cool to luke-warm water and pat dry. Finish your toothbrush facial by applying a moisturizer.
Grungy Elbows, Feet And Toes?
Do you have ground in dirt on the bottom of your calloused feet or in your toe nails and no matter how many times you wash them, the dirt just won’t come out? It will if you use your electric tooth brush. Soaking your feet in warm, soapy water first will help but it is not necessary. Dip your brush in a cleanser or vibrate brush over a bar of soap, scrub your feet, toes and/or elbows, rinse and pat dry.
Moisturizing your feet and elbows will help eliminate this problem; it will also help with dry, rough feet. Use plain, old Vaseline, not Vaseline lotion, to soften your calluses. Dip your toothbrush in the Vaseline jar while the toothbrush is vibrating. If you dip first then turn on the toothbrush it will fling it everywhere.
Message your feet or elbows for a minute and then wipe off the excess with a paper towel. Believe me, this works. I use this method on my feet nearly every night during the summer when my feet get stained and dirty from wearing sandals.
Cleaning And Buffing Your Fingernails
If spring planting or cleaning has left your finger nails stained and with bits of dirt under your nails, a quick way to clean them is to use your electric toothbrush. Make sure it has soft bristles and you mark this brush ‘for fingernails only’.
First, wet your toothbrush head and vibrate over a bar of soap or dip into your favorite cleanser. Clean around and under your nails in a circular motion. This will soften the skin around your nails and not only allow you to clean your nails but also remove the secondary cuticle on your nail bed.
Condition and Shine Your Nails
You need to moisturize your nails as well as any other part of your body. Dry, brittle nails are not only unsightly but they will break more easily. Buffing your nails with a moisturizer will increase blood circulation to the nail bed, encourage nail growth and will provide moisture to your nails.
Before you apply a moisturizer remove old polish with a non-acetone fingernail polish remover. One of the best moisturizers for your nails is olive oil or Vaseline. Both will soften the skin around your nail and provide a protective barrier. Nourished nails will not crack, peal, stain or break easily.
Recycle, Reuse, Reduce
By recycling that seemingly used up toothbrush head you’ll be reducing the amount of trash at our waste sites. Well, maybe not by much, but it’s a start. I’m sure if you put your thinking cap on, you’ll be able to think of many more uses for that old, worn-out electric toothbrush head.
