9 Tips to Get Beauty On a Budget
Beauty is something that every woman desires. It can also be regarded as the most precious wealth a lady can possess. Some people may be born beautiful, while others are less gifted. Nevertheless, everyone has to work on maintaining their good looks and attractiveness. However, even using costly creams, lotions and face packs may not bring the desired results. Here are few budget beauty tips for you that will yield best results.
1. Baking soda
Baking soda is a boon for people who want beautiful hair and skin. Two teaspoons of baking soda when mixed with a cup of warm water and used as a final rinse after shampoo will provide appropriate moisture to your hair by acting as a clarifying shampoo. It is one of the natural humectants that can hold appropriate amount of moisture in your hair. Baking soda acts as a facial cleanser when 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda is mixed with any facial cleanser for exfoliating the skin. It can also lead to cleaner and whiter teeth. Baking soda has a salty taste but it is a typical tooth cleanser and whitener. Sprinkling baking soda on a damp toothbrush and brushing normally will keep your teeth white and clean.
Honey is one of the best natural and inexpensive items which assures beauty on budget. Honey can be used as a hair conditioner by massaging one tablespoon of pure honey into damp hair after shampooing and then rinsing it out with warm water. Honey can also be used as an effective cleanser and face pack. It can perfectly heal the skin that is prone to acne and dryness. Spread it on skin and let it remain for about 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Since honey is a good antioxidant and has antibacterial properties, it can prepare your skin against breakouts.
3. Spa therapy
If you want to have a simple DIY hydrotherapy, begin your day with a hot steamy shower and when you’re about to finish, switch the water to cold for about 20 seconds. Repeating this process for 2-3 minutes will rejuvenate your skin by giving it a special glow due to the stimulation of blood throughout your body.
One of the best known beauty tricks associated with cucumber is its ability to alleviate puffiness in the eyes by preventing water retention. Freshly sliced cucumber when placed on the eyes, reduces water retention, thereby decreasing the overall puffiness in the eyes. This also helps in removing the dark circles around your eyes and brightening up your eyes. Applying cucumber juice on the skin and allowing it to set for about 15 minutes will remove sun tan, wrinkles and clogged pores in the skin.
Turmeric is an inexpensive beauty aid. It helps in cleaning, beautifying and reducing the melanin content in the skin. If you are dark-skinned and want your skin to be fair, mix two teaspoons of turmeric powder with one teaspoon of sandalwood and apply it regularly as a face pack. This will make your skin beautiful, bright and healthy within a span of 15 days. Mixing milk, cream and turmeric to form a paste and applying it on your skin will remove wrinkles and lines which will make you look young and gorgeous.
