Beauty that Won’t Break the Bank

Picture2Recently, I was sent a care package with beauty tips and it was so creative and fantastic, I just had to share these tips with you. Especially since it’s that time of year again.  You know, the spending season? 

With all the money we fork out on food, gifts and decorations it’s no wonder we’re stressed and left with very little over for ourselves.  It’s so easy to find some of these things around the home and it’s comforting to know how much money I’m saving.

Dry Skin Moisturize and repair damaged skin with coconut oil. Costs less than $1.00 per ounce. Department store moisturizer $50+
Teeth Whitening Whitening toothpaste like Arm & Hammer Advance White Extreme Whitening Stain Defence less than $4.00 Whitening strips or dentist whitening $30 – $300
Puffy Eyes Steep 2 black or green tea bags for a couple of minutes in hot water, let cool and place bags over closed eyes $0.20 Fancy eye cream
Nails and Cuticles Rub a dollop of petroleum jelly on each nail and cuticle.  A little goes a long way so a small tub can last several months. $2.50 Upscale hand and nail cream.  $15-$50
Rough Skin Mix Arm & Hammer Baking Soda with water to make a paste and lightly rub on skin to gently exfoliate: $1.99 Department store exfoliator:  $15-$50

These are just a few tips, I’m sure there are many more affordable tips out there.  I liked these ones because none of it requires fussing around making up mixtures with ingredients I probably don’t have on hand already.

What’s your beauty regime at this time of year?  Do you have any “easy” remedies to share?
