With these gas prices, who has any money for Botox or that weekly massage? Before you resort to letting yourself go to pot, consider these budget-friendly beauty tips. And stop feeling guilty about treating yourself to a pedicure once in a while.
Ok so maybe the beauty counter at Neiman’s isn’t exactly fitting your budget these days, but you can still score the hottest trends in make-up. Head over to ELF for unbelievable deals. Stock up on brightening eye liner, shimmering facial whip or nail polish. There are dozens of products that only cost $1. Yes, $1.
Want big beautiful lips without the big, ugly bill? Try Duwop lip venom. It will increase circulation to the lips, resulting in a shiny, plumper pout. And right now you can get tube of your own for just $12.60 at BeautyDeals.net.
You deserve a relaxing facial, but racking up hundreds of dollars in spa bills will leave you more stressed out than when you arrived. So why not try to DIY? Here’s a good one to try: pick up a $.49 container of plain yogurt at the grocery store. Mix it with a bit of sugar and apply to your face like a mask. It will help clear up blemishes, take away redness and make you feel refreshed! Not bad for under a buck!
Visits to the salon may be part of your monthly routine, but there are ways to cut costs when it comes to cutting your hair. For instance, many stylists will trim your bangs for free in between more major haircuts. You may also want to consider coloring your hair at home. It’s a lot cheaper and if you’re just maintaining your current color, it’s a pretty easy process.
Manicure and Pedicure
Keeping those nails in shape can put a dent in your budget. Stop your weekly visit to the nail salon and instead try to give yourself a mani/pedi. Pick up some “Soul Owner” by Philosophy. For just $14 you’ll have a product that exfoliates dry, cracking skin which will reduce rough soles and nasty knees. Pick up your favorite polish and you’ll be on your way to lovely hands and feet at a lovely price.
