Every woman wants to look absolutely fabulous when leaving the house. We all look at our favorite magazines and all the gorgeous fashion models and wish we could have their perfect skin. I know I do. Trust me my skin isn’t really as flawless as it looks! I just know how to work the lighting and angles in pictures of myself, LOL. With today’s economy going to the salon or spa is pretty much out of the question for most of us.
The good news is, you really don’t have to spend big bucks to look like a gorgeous supermodel. I myself, swear by these 5 super cheap beauty tricks to help keep you looking and feeling great with beautiful, soft, skin that will glow. Follow these beauty tips that you can actually afford and you will have gorgeous skin in no time!
Forget all those high dollar moisturizers
Apply Vaseline to your elbows, hands, knees, and feet nightly. Cover your feet with good fitting socks and your hands with good lotion gloves (Try- Urban Spa Moisturizing Gloves) and sleep with them on at night. In the morning your skin will feel soft and well moisturized.
Help fight the appearance of nasty blackheads
Mix up equal parts of plain oatmeal with honey and stir to make up a paste. Use this paste as a face scrub and you will zap those zits before they start and have a beautiful and flawless complexion.
Get rid of puffy eyes
Slice a raw potato and put them on your eyelids to reduce the redness and puffiness. Lay down and rest for about 20 minutes and when you get up, bye bye to those nasty bags.
Avoid those yellowish stained fingernails
Take a freshly cut lemon and scrub it over your fingernails to buff away those yucky yellow stains. You can also make a soak by mixing 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and about 2 tablespoons of warm water. Allow your your nails to soak in the mixture for about 15 minutes and then rinse your hands well. Be sure to use a good moisturizer afterwards as the lemon juice can dry your hands. Remember the Vaseline trick in tip 1 if needed.
Make your own sugar body scrub
You can save a ton of money on all those fancy high dollar body scrubs and simply make your own. To do this mix up a 1/2 cup of sugar and a 1/4 cup of oil. Use this in the shower to exfoliate dry dead skin. It works just as well as a lot of those expensive sugar scrubs you see in the stores.
A woman should always walk tall with confidence because confidence is beautiful. Walk tall and stand proud, ladies. We may be put on a tight budget, but we are females after all and when it comes to our beauty, we will make it happen.
