5 Different Ways to Use Listerine For Beauty Benefits & Home Remedies
Did you know there are different ways to use Listerine? Sure, it’s actually a mouthwash, but there are a ton of other ways you can use it; you can do a relaxing foot soak using Listerine and even use it to clear your skin!
Scroll down to see some other beauty benefits of Listerine that I bet you didn’t know were possible! Check out my 5 home remedies using Listerine below.
Tools and materials:
- Spray bottle
- Cotton swab
1. Anti-dandruff spray
Thanks to its fantastic antibacterial properties, you can use Listerine to prevent dandruff and an itchy scalp.
Simply take one part water and one part Listerine, pour it in a spray bottle, mix it up, and spray it all over your scalp, every time after you shower.
2. Spot treatment
If you have any breakouts or pimples, then Listerine is your answer! Simply dab your Q-tip in Listerine and place it all over your spots and a little bit around your spots.
Do this every night before you go to bed, and your spots should heal faster.
If you have facial blemishes, do the same process, but this time use a piece of cotton wool.
3. Cleaning makeup brushes
We all know that regularly cleaning your makeup brushes is a good habit since germs and bacteria really love accumulating within the bristles.
Using Listerine is an incredible hack to clean and disinfect them quickly. Simply pour a little Listerine into a bowl, dip your brush, and get rid of the excess product by swiping it on a clean tissue.
4. Eliminate body odor
Let’s face it; we all have body odor! Luckily, you can also use Listerine to eliminate any foul smell. You can use Listerine over your armpits with the help of a cotton swab (I did this over my t-shirt for demonstration purposes).
Also, you can just spray Listerine directly onto your armpits.
5. Foot soak using Listerine
Here’s another excellent beauty benefit of Listerine - using it as a foot soak! All you need is;
- 1 cup Listerine
- 1 cup white vinegar
- A big mug of warm water
Soak your feet in this mixture for about 10-15 minutes, and you’ll be amazed at how it gets rid of all the dead skin cells, leaving your feet feeling soft and clean.
