Surprise Uses for a Popular Skin Care Product

So has anyone ever used tanning lotions or creams at home and gotten weird, dark, sometimes orange color deposits on their elbows or knees? How about those weird lines that show up around the edges of your feet when you try to tan your feet for flip flops and sandals? Or have you ever forgotten to wash your hands or even not washed them good enough so your hands are stained oompa-loompa orange? I know a product to fix all of this.

Now how about paint? Have you ever painted a room and gotten some on your skin or nails that despite your best attempts at scrubbing or using nail polish remover just stay on? And of course this happens when you have a date or an event in a few days and "rubber ducky yellow" or "mauve over pink" paint stains don't quite match the planned outfit. That same product will take this off too.

Oh, and how about those annoying band-aid marks? Don't you love when you pull off the band-aid and in the center is your almost gone wound, but you're left with two ugly, sticky squares on either side? Well, we can get rid of that right away too. (And no Brillo pads needed!)

Now I should mention this product is used for skin care, but not for the average skin. Clinique has a 3-Step Skin Care system that range from 1-4. 1 is for dry, sensitive skin. 2 is for most people. It's the average skin type for people with "combination skin", typically meaning dry to comfortable in the cheeks and an oily t-zone. 3 is for people with more oily skin who have comfortable to oily cheeks and a very oily t-zone. These people tend to always have a stray blemish or two and as one leaves another arrives. But 4 is for a very specific person. You must be oily all over, acne prone, with constant breakouts, usually in clusters and sometimes even have boils. Obviously skin type 4's system is rather harsh for the average person. The 3-Step system is a bar or liquid soap, a toner, and a moisturizer.

Clinique's step 2, the toner, in its 3-Step skin care in skin type 4 will remove tanning mistakes, paint stains, and band-aid marks pretty much instantly. Now keep in mind who it's for. Remember to wash the area after using it, and moisturize because it WILL dry out normal skin. (I, of course, would recommend the Nivea lotion I blogged about right beneath this post!) But you can order online or grab at your nearest department store Clinique counter a bottle of Clinique Clarifying Lotion 4. They come in two different sizes: 6.7 fl oz for $12.50 or 13.5 fl oz for $21.00.

Buy Clinique Clarifying Lotion 4 on Clinique's website.
