While we’d all like to be able to afford the expensive stuff, for most of us, cheap jewellery really is the only option – and with so many beautiful imitations on the market, it’s easy to dress up an outfit using more affordable means.
But if like us, you’ve had to remove statement earrings a few hours in because your ears are so sore – it’s time to give this little beauty hack a try.
Writer Brittany Stewart recommends dipping the earring metal into coconut oil, leaving for a few seconds and then putting it into your ear.
As Brittany explains in her piece for Mamamia the coconut oil creates a barrier between the earring and your skin, meaning she could wear her look all night without the usual pain.
And while this trick can make earrings a little slippery, a perfect way round this is to buy plastic pieces to go on the back of the earrings and keep them in place.
Always test a small amount of a new product on your skin to check for reactions before incorporating into your regime.
