Fact: Your skincare products aren't just limited for your face—you can also repurpose them for your body! This is a great way to repurpose them if they're not hiyang for your complexion or if you just want to get more use out of them and make your purchase sulit. For example, a toner works great for cleaning out your underarms, a cleansing oil doubles as a shaving cream alternative, and your rich moisturizer can soften dry feet and cracked heels.
Below, we've listed down our top picks for facial products that can also be used for different parts of your body:
Skinpotions Acne Pie Pimple Calming Soap

Another way to repurpose your cleansing oil is to use it as a shaving cream subsitute when going to town with a razor on your legs. When you're done, let the product emulsify under running water, then pat them dry. Ta-da! You've instantly got smoother and more moisturized gams.
