Who owns one of those fire engine red tubes/tubs of Lucas Paw Paw Ointment? I have one in my handbag, one in my work desk and one at home. So cheap, so handy and you know what? It has a million more uses than just keeping your pout smooth and moisturised.
Here are just a few of my favourite uses:
Treat your Feet
You’ve probably read about the benefits of applying moisturiser nightly to your feet to keep them baby soft. Good old Lucas works just as well, even better actually if you rub some ointment into any rough, dry patches on your feet. Pop on some cotton socks, clock up your beauty sleep and voila! Deliciously soft tootsies.
Yup, just rub in some Paw Paw ointment onto your cuticles to keep them nourished and make them more manageable for your next mani. Rub it in after applying hand cream, or if you’re doing DIY, coat your cuticles in the stuff before pushing back your own cuticles.
Use sparingly in place of a serum. Rub in between your palms and pat onto your head to keep the frizzies at bay. Plus, you can smooth it over your head if you’re doing a sleek updo or ponytail.
Apply a bit of Lucas to a clean mascara wand and brush onto your brows to keep them groomed and in place. Easy!
Yes, seriously. Use a little on your cheekbones for a dewy sheen. Or apply to your eyelids for a sexy, glossy look. Dab over a matte lipstick to oomph up the finish. Apply them to your lashes after curling them for a natural lift and instant volume.
If you’ve run out of gloves, coat your hands in the stuff and apply your fake tan; the ointment will act like a barrier cream.
Using at at home hair dye? Spread a light layer of Paw Paw ointment around your hairline. That way, if any hair dye gets onto your skin, it won’t stain and will easily rub off.
