I Found a Way to Repurpose My Old Clothes

Hey Lovelies!

If you've been following me, you know that I am on a weight loss journey along with regaining my mobility. As you know, with weight loss, you come to points along the way where you have to get rid of your old clothing because they are too big. After finding ways to alter my clothes to fit better and donating the ones in good condition, I found myself not wanting to let go of the rest right away.

What’s going on, Lovelies? Day 8 of #MakeupMay challenge is all about that lip baby! Before I get into the lip let me speak a little on skincare. Having a solid skincare regimen that you can keep up with is key to having your makeup look good on you. I normally like having a soft matte face because my own combination skin has a natural dewy finish after I moisturize. You can see it in the pics here. I am not wearing any face makeup at all I only have one mascara, eyeliner, and lip products. Is my skin flawless? Hell no! But I take care of it so that if I want to lighten the makeup load I can still feel confident even with my flaws on display. Don’t let your flaws interfere with taking care of your skin. The better you treat it, the better it will treat you.

What I do now is use them as headwraps. I use my t-shirts and tank tops/dresses this way. The undies and bras just get trashed. Everything else is game. So far I've loved doing this. Each garment gives me different results. You can only do so much depending on the weave/knit, length, and width of the garment.

Of course, the stretchy knits are the most versatile to work with. However the stretchier the knit, the more your hair has to be neat underneath because every bump, lump, etc., will show up. Tighter knits and woven garments require enough length and width to be able to wrap around your head and be twisted, knotted, whatever to secure the headwrap.

I first began doing this while in the nursing home, but I was using my good stuff then (I don't recommend doing that, though). The idea to do this came from vlogger kilahmazing. She taught me how to tie and secure a headwrap via her YouTube channel. She uses scarves and old leggings for her headwraps.

So before you trash or cut up those old clothes to be used as rags, try getting a little more use out of them by using them as headwraps. I'm telling you, it is a game changer!
