HOW TO REUSE OLD COSMETICS

 

Old cosmetics: how to reuse them when they get old or we don't like them anymore

Paintings, glitter for decorations, original colors for greeting cards: even expired cosmetics can have a second life. Tips to dispose of them properly, if we can't reuse them



HOW TO REUSE OLD COSMETICS

Like many of the things we have at home, even cosmetics have an expiration date, the so-called PAO, Period After Opening (period after opening); that is why it is never advisable to buy them in large quantities if you are not sure to use them to the end.

COSMETIC CREATIVE RECYCLING

When cosmetics expire or it becomes difficult to use them at their best when they are about to run out (as happens with lipsticks), throwing them away is not the only option, as they can be recycled

HOW TO REUSE EXPIRED COSMETICS

Let's see how to give a second life to become old or expired cosmetics :

  • HOW TO REUSE BLUSHER AND POWDER

If you have expired make-up powders that you can no longer use on your face, such as blushes or powders, you can use them to decorate greeting cards or decorations of all kinds, just mix the powders with the glass paints and you will have given them the your personal touch; if you want to recycle the powders for cosmetic use, mix them with the transparent nail polish and you will have original nail polishes.

  • HOW TO REUSE OLD GLAZES

With the nail polish, you can paint keys or small objects (such as hairpins, necklaces pendants) to give them a shiny and glamorous look or use them to paint on glass. With the old enamels, rhinestones and beads on t-shirts or dresses are fixed

  • HOW TO REUSE OLD CREAMS

Even creams expire and when this happens, use them to create excellent hand and body scrubs, mixing them with brown sugar, oil or honey: you will get an effective and low-cost scrub. The creams are also very useful for nourishing cracked feet and cleaning the chandeliers.

  • HOW TO REUSE OLD CLEANSING MILK

If you have cleansing milk that you have just forgotten, do not throw it away but use it to clean bags, belts, book covers or to remove makeup brushes, because the milk eliminates powder residues without drying the bristles.

  • HOW TO REUSE OILS FOR THE BODY

With body and hair oils, hinges, creaking doors are lubricated, steel is cleaned and wooden furniture is nourished.

  • HOW TO REUSE OLD MASCARA

If you have old mascara in your beauty case, retrieve the brush, wash it well with hot water and use it to clean jewelry or to comb your eyebrows.

  • HOW TO REUSE OLD EYE AND LIP PENCILS

Recycle old lip or eye pencils to write your birthday cards or to draw, just like they were crayons.

  • HOW TO REUSE OLD EYESHADOWS

With the old eyeshadows, you can make children happy, because, by mixing them with water, they become excellent watercolors, or mixed with the vinyl glue they transform into sparkling glitter, to be used in the decoration of posters and crafts.

  • HOW TO REUSE OLD LIPSTICKS

Have you bought some lipsticks of different colors and once you tried it did you realize that those colors do not look so good even if they are beautiful? No problem: try to use them together by mixing them, maybe this way you will be able to identify that color you were looking for when you went to the perfumery. And again: mix the old lipsticks in a small container in a double boiler, pour the mixture into one of the containers you have emptied, let it dry, and then try to see if that lipstick shade may have turned into an innovative blush to apply on the cheeks.

CREATIVE RECYCLING OLD COSMETICS

And what if, despite our advice, you still don't know what to do with cosmetic leftovers or expired ones? Do like Anna de Rosa, the Mexican artist who, with the tricks she no longer uses… paints pictures! Intense colors and bold brushstrokes in a style that the artist defines as realistic-naive, which has Frida Khalo's art among its referents. She uses lipstick or blush residues that are generally thrown away and that she instead recovers and transforms into raw material for painting. Fingers, hands, and cotton swabs instead of brushes and a lot of imagination. Furthermore, the artist also cuts down the costs related to the purchase of the material because by now he no longer buys anything, nor the colors, which he replaces with cosmetics, but not even the canvases, which he obtains from recycled pieces of cloth, parts of plywood and leftovers of carpentry.

WHERE TO THROW OLD COSMETICS

Where to throw the cosmetic containers once they run out? The separate collection is a must, therefore, the disposal must be carried out with criterion in order to avoid that the packs become harmful to the environment.

Let's see where the small or large packages of worn-out cosmetics are thrown away:

  • If we have mascaraeyeshadowlipstickface powder, and foundation at home, a fundamental distinction must be made. If the packages still contain some product, they must be thrown in the collection of the residual / undifferentiated dry product. If, on the other hand, the packages are completely empty and are made of plastic, without a mirror inside, they must be thrown into the plastic bucket. If some old product still remains in the packaging, this should also be thrown away in the unsorted collection, because it is not considered special waste.
  • As regards the pencils for the lips, those for the eyes, the brushes for make-up, and the brushes for the eyelashes, the disposal takes place in the residual/undifferentiated dry collection. Even the nail polish must be thrown in the undifferentiated collection, while the nail polish remover is a RUP (Dangerous Urban Waste), therefore it must be taken to the ecological island and thrown in the hazardous waste bin, never in the separate collection one. If, on the other hand, the solvent bottle is empty and is made of plastic, it must be disposed of with plastic waste.
  • The cotton swab used to remove the enamel or for any other use must be disposed of in the collection of the residual/undifferentiated dry product.
