6. Loose shoelaces
Sometimes our shoelaces seem to have a mind of their own and come untied at the most inopportune moments. Before we know it, we're tripping over them or our shoe is hanging off just when we're stepping over a large puddle. You can solve this problem by applying some lip balm to the knot right after tying your shoes and then pulling the knot as tight as possible.
7. Flyaway hair
Dried out "flyaway" hair can be a real nuisance in winter. A simple trick for solving this problem is to coat your palms with some lip balm and then run them over your hair. Be careful not to use too much, you don't want to leave your hair looking greasy. You can also use lip balm to style your eyebrows. To do this, you can apply it directly from the tube.
8. Split ends
If your hair is really dry, it's important to act quickly before you get split ends. To prevent this, apply some lip balm to your palms and massage it into the ends of your hair. But again, be careful not to use too much or your hair will end up looking stringy.
9. Stuck zippers
If you're having trouble with a zipper, simply rub some lip balm above and below it and start pulling up and down. A few pulls should be enough to loosen it up and get things zipping along again!
10. Tight piercings
Most women have had this problem at some time or another after not wearing earrings for a while. When left open, the skin on the earlobe begins to grow back together which makes it difficult to put on earrings. To avoid discomfort and possible infection, rub a bit of lip balm on your earlobe and on the post of the earring. This will make it easier to insert.
11. Remove excess mascara
When applying mascara, it's hard to avoid getting a bit on the skin above and below your eyelashes. To get rid of it, simply rub some lip balm on a cotton swab and carefully dab it on the spots where the mascara shouldn't be. The grease in the lip balm will loosen it and make it easy to dab away.
12. Eyeshadow base
To improve the color and hold of any eyeshadow, you can apply some lip balm to your eyelids as a base before putting it on. No more need for expensive products that are sold as eyeshadow base!
As you can see, those simple little tubes can be a big help in all kinds of situations. And now that you have so many uses for them, you can feel free to grab a few more next time you're in the checkout line! What'll it be this time, caramel or cherry flavor?
