3 uses for your out-of-date sunscreen

If you’ve found a bottle of old suncream that’s past its best, don’t head straight for the bin. There are some other uses for your out of date suncream, so read on to find out more.

1. Style

If you have a few flyaway strands and need to tame them – a little bit of suncream can help. Rub a small amount on your hands and then smooth your hair down.

2. Moisturise

Just because it can’t keep the sunburn at bay doesn’t mean it can’t be used as an everyday moisturiser. While it may be too greasy for face cream, try using expired suncream when you want to moisturise your legs. Or keep it to use as a hand cream after gardening or washing up.

3. Shave

Whether you want to shave your legs or your face, slather on some suncream for an effective substitute for shaving foam. It also gives you a hit of moisturiser to leave your skin feeling smooth.

Have you got any other uses for expired suncream that we haven’t listed here? We would love to hear from you in the comments below.
