Many people are much more self-conscious about what they send to landfills and throw away and are always looking for new ways to repurpose reuse and recycle where they can. We often use many different types of makeup and cosmetics, and rather than throw the containers away, and you can reuse and repurpose them, so they are still useful. Doing this can dramatically reduce the amount we send to landfills, and these containers can also come in handy.
Recycling Cosmetic Tubes
PBL cosmetic tubes are commonly used in the cosmetics industry. Rather than throwing them away, you can repurpose them and turn them into travel size containers for soaps, shampoo, and conditioners. To fill them up, you will need to squeeze the air out of the container, submerge them in the liquid you want to fill them with, and release the container, so it draws the liquid inside. You then have conveniently sized containers for your toiletries that you can take with you when you go away, so you always have your favourite shampoo and conditioner with you.
Reuse Your Perfume Bottles
Many perfume brands have elaborated and beautiful bottles, and it is a shame to throw these away. You can reuse these eye-catching bottles is to remove the top and put flowers in them, turning them into a vase. You will only be able to put a few flowers in each bottle, but for something so small, that can have a significant impact on how your room looks and feels.
Repurposing Lipstick Containers
You can also put your old lipstick containers to good use and use these to store medication, which is especially good if you need to take tablets daily. You can paint your lipstick containers, so you have a different one for each day of the week. You will need to ensure the inside of them are clean, and you can fill your containers up once a week with all the pills you need to take. They are a convenient size and much better looking than traditional pillboxes.
Make Your Homemade Skin Care Products
You can also try making skincare products at home, and you can get many recipes you can try for free online. You can then reuse old cosmetic containers that you have and store your homemade beauty products in them. You may find that you prefer your homemade concoctions, and you can save yourself a small fortune when you no longer have to buy what you need and can make it at home.
