How to Use a Spoon as a Beauty Tool
You’ve probably used a spoon for eating, but have you ever used a spoon as a cosmetic tool? If you have a spoon and are looking to save money or decrease the number of tools you have in your beauty routine, follow these three techniques.
- Eyelash Curler: Place a small spoon facing outward with the bottom edge of the spoon placed along the upper lash line. To curl the lashes, use your index finger or thumb to hold the lashes against the edge of the spoon. Curl the spoon upwards and against the lashes. Repeat this motion across your lashes and apply a waterproof mascara once you’re happy with the appearance. If you need a visual aid, try watching this video.
- Eye De-Puffer: If you struggle with puffy eyes, you don’t need to purchase any expensive products or treatments to revive the life in your eyes. Keep two spoons in your fridge and run the back of the spoon around your eyes to decrease the swelling.
- Gua Sha or Facial Massage: Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the scraping of recently oiled skin with a jade facial tool to massage the face and encourage blood flow to the skin, which may help give the face a more plump and healthier appearance. If you don’t have access to the jade facial tool, a large spoon can be used as a replacement. Watch this video to learn more about Gua Sha and using a spoon for a facial massage.
