Besides hydrating scaly arms and legs, your favorite bottle of lotion can be a multitasking beauty product. See the other ways you can use it below:

An emergency makeup remover

Lotion can melt off makeup and moisturize the skin. Make sure to use a hypoallergenic baby lotion that's gentle enough to use on the face.

Shaving cream

Ran out of shaving cream? Apply lotion on your legs before using your razor for a smooth shave.

Leave-in conditioner

Tame stubborn strands and get rid of frizzy ends by massaging a tiny amount of lotion on them.

A budget body scrub

Remove dead skin with this two-ingredient body scrub: Mix ground coffee (or rice grains!) with lotion.

Cuticle softener

Combine lotion and olive oil and use this concoction to saturate dry cuticles—you won’t need to get a pedi anymore!

A sexy body balm

Score a sexy sheen on your arms and gams by mixing gold eyeshadow powder with body lotion.

An instant foot mask

Slather lotion all over your feet and wear socks to lock in the moisture as you sleep. Wake up to soft tootsies the next day.
