Low Budget Beauty Tips

Low budget beauty tips! Tips and tricks for saving money on beauty supplies

We all want to be beautiful but no matter what color your hair, what size your dress, or how straight your teeth you must have inner beauty. You have to realize that we are all beautiful in our own individual way and that you don't have to try to look like someone else to be pretty. Feeling good about yourself and having confidence will give you a radiant glow that others will find beautiful too.

Now that you're feeling good about yourself, we'll move on to the tips.

I have dry hair and have tried a million things, some very expensive, and this has worked best. Mash one ripe banana with a teaspoon of almond oil and massage into your hair. Rinse after 20 minutes. I do this once a week. you may not need to as often.

For whiter teeth, mix a little baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to form a paste. Use once a week. Will give you the same effects of those over the counter pastes but much cheaper.

If you have a problem with acne, try making a facial mask from brewers yeast and plain yogurt. Those zits will disappear. It's amazing!

For an invigorating facial toner, add two drops essential oil to 8 ounces of mineral water. I use peppermint and keep it in the fridge.

Caffeine is a main ingredient in many cellulite creams. Try massaging warm coffee grounds into your skin while in the shower. It sounds gross but it works.

You can also use baby oil lotion as a moisturizer and it works better than the expensive ones.

And use egg white as a mask . Let it dry then rinse off with warm water...tightens your face. And for nails I have used in the past the Hoof cream used by trainers on the horses hoofs. You can also use diluted vinegar as a hair rinse to get out all the film left by hairsprays and mousses that shampooing doesn't get.

For those who struggle with limp, oily hair Use an inexpensive clear shampoo and then blow dry hair. Another option is to towel dry while spraying inexpensive hairspray on the roots. Fluffing the roots should bring out volume.

When it comes to zits, Don't squeeze them, don't even touch them! Clean your face normally and apply an antiseptic.

Some faces suffer from dry flaky patches. Scrub the area and cover with petroleum jelly or vegetable shortening before going to sleep.

Don't worry about what skin tone you have! You know that fad where women thought they had to be a "cool summer" or a "spring"? Wear what colors you like. Coordinate with your hair or outfit and don't be afraid to try any of the current fads. Use tinted Chapstick or pale lipstick as blush. An eyelash curler is a good investment. Stock up on cheap lip liners, and use Vaseline as the lip gloss. Another use for Vaseline is to mix it with sugar and rub it into the lips. Once you blot you'll discover a very soft, naturally red and pouty mouth.

Most important, drink lots of water. Most adults, especially women don't get enough water anyway. Becoming dehydrated will dry out your skin and make you feel sluggish. Water flushes out the toxins in your body and leaves your skin, hair and nails looking great! Try adding a little lemon for flavor.
