Weird Toothbrush Beauty Hacks That Actually Work

It's always so miraculous to find different uses for ordinary everyday items. Like a toothbrush for example. We all know that our toothbrushes are great for cleaning our teeth, but did you know that there are some pretty cool diy ideas and simple life hacks you can use a toothbrush for? Although you may want to buy a separate toothbrush for these simple life hacks because you won't want to use the same one that you use to brush your teeth. Before the toothbrush was invented, there were some different oral hygiene methods for cleaning teeth. People used chew sticks, tree twigs, bird feathers, porcupine quills and animal bones to clean their teeth in the past. Chew sticks were made out of twigs with frayed ends that people used to brush their teeth. Then the other end of the stick was used as a toothpick. The first bristled toothbrush that was anything like a modern toothbrush was used in China. It was made of hog bristles attached to a handle made out of bamboo or bone. Most modern day toothbrushes are now made out of plastic and synthetic fibers for the bristles. But, you can still buy all natural bamboo toothbrushes too.

In total, you may actually want to buy 3 toothbrushes. One for brushing your teeth, of course, one or even two for all of the cool beauty hacks, and one for house cleaning purposes. Along with these awesome beauty hacks, there are some great cleaning hacks you can use a toothbrush for. Like cleaning the grout in your shower, or scrubbing the dirt out of window sills and other crevices. They're also great for polishing items like jewelry and silverware. The beauty hacks are pretty amazing too. Niki Sky, shares all of her favorite beauty hacks using a toothbrush and you have to check them all out and hopefully you'll put them all to the test. First, you can use a clean toothbrush as a face exfoliating brush. The bristles are nice and small, to they fit on the surface of your face easily and they are also fairly gentle as well. Just put some face cleanser on your skin and then take your toothbrush and use small, circular motions to scrub your entire face. This will get rid of the dead skin cells, leaving your skin glowing and super soft. You can also use the same technique to exfoliate your lips.

You can also use your beauty toothbrush to slick down any fly away hairs on the top of your head by spraying the toothbrush with a little bit of hair spray and then combing the hairs down into place. Try the same with your eyebrows instead of using a brow gel to keep them in place. If your mascara is looking a little clumpy, you can use your toothbrush to comb out any clumps and to separate any lashes that have gotten stuck together. Just gently comb the lashes from the bottom to the tip using a side to side motion. Teasing your hair is also great when you use a toothbrush. You'll get some great volume and it won't do as much damage as a regular teasing comb would. Try out all of these fun beauty hacks from Niki Sky and see which ones you like the best. Maybe you can come up with some of your own too.
