Double Duty: Multiple Uses for Your Beauty Products

These days, we spend the majority of our time finding ways to save time. The fact is that time-saving solutions are a hot commodity. What better way to make the most of your early mornings – and maybe catch a few extra zzz’s – by using beauty products that pull double duty? Here are several products that work overtime, offering multiple uses and shaving minutes off your daily, often hectic routine.


In a pinch, lipstick can double as blush – and a cream blush can also fill in for your lipstick, as needed. Then there are the genius products actually formulated to do both, like the Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Pink ($17.79). Producing a soft, girlish flush, the flattering hue adds a kiss of color to your pout and brightens up even the most tired complexions in an instant. The creamy, water-resistant, long-lasting formula is a dream.jane-iredale-lip-cheek-stain


You reach for your shaving cream mid-shower, only to discover there’s barely a drop left. We’ve all been there – and we’ve all felt that desperately uncomfortable itch that occurs when we substitute soap for shaving cream. A better solution? Grab your hair conditioner. It’s rich, thick, and moisturizing, and it provides just the right slip to glide your razor over. Give TIGI Bed Head Elasticate Conditioner ($9.99) a try for its hydrating prowess. It’s as good to your skin as it is to your hair!


Just as valuable as time are options. We love a product that doesn’t stop at just one – it goes above and beyond, offering a plethora of possibilities. The CHI Nano Digital Flat Iron ($99.98) is a genius example. Not only does it straighten locks to perfection, but it also serves as a curling iron. With a quick flick of your wrist, you can use the iron to create lush, voluminous curls or even tight ringlets.


Sometimes you just don’t have the time or motivation to address every single inch of your face. Simplify your routine with a product like Glo Minerals Shimmer Brick in Gleam ($20.99). A multipurpose product that serves as a blush and highlighter, it instantly brightens up a sallow complexion, adds color to cheeks and even contours your face to add dimension.glo-minerals-shimmer-brick


Who hasn’t overslept and taken a frantic shower – or worse, skipped that morning shower altogether – just to get to the office in time? If you can squeeze in a quick rinse, make use of Anthony Logistics’ Invigorating Rush Hair and Body Wash ($24.99). It’s designed to clean and condition your hair and your skin, so you’re left completely soft from head to toe – without the need to use a whole bunch of products to achieve the same effect.097735d6e58f15edb101e22edd367bd2

Choosing a Shampoo for Thinning Hair in Men or Women

Nioxin makes shampoo for thinning hair for men and women. Divided into 8 systems, NIOXIN shampoos are developed to meet the needs of different hair types and different stages of hair loss.

Choosing the Right Shampoo starts by answering these 3 short questions:

  • Do you have thin hair or medium to course hair?
  • Have you Chemically treated your hair?
  • Are you beginning to notice hair loss or is it noticeably thinning (receding hair line, scalp shows through hair)?

Systems 1 to 4 are for thin hair, while systems 5 to 8 are for medium to course hair.

Shampoos for Thin Hair:

  • System 1: Thin, non-chemically treated hair in beginning stages of hair loss.
  • System 2: Thin, non-chemically treated and noticeably-thinning hair.
  • System 3: Thin, chemically treated hair in beginning stages of hair loss.
  • System 4: Thin, chemically treated and noticeably thinning hair.

Shampoos for Medium to Course Hair:

  • System 1: Medium/Course, non-chemically treated hair in beginning stages of hair loss.
  • System 2: Medium/Course, non-chemically treated and noticeably-thinning hair.
  • System 3: Medium/Course, chemically treated hair in beginning stages of hair loss.
  • System 4: Medium/Course, chemically treated and noticeably thinning hair.

Thinning hair Nioxin shampoos are available individually and as part of starter kits that include a scalp therapy (conditioner) and scalp treatment in addition to the cleanser (shampoo).
