Beautiful skin can be achieved on a budget! Top brands in skin care have gone through a lot of effort to make their products effective, and we understand that. For some of us, it is just not possible with limited funds! So how do people on a budget achieve great skin? Here we feature skin care tips for maintaining healthy and clear skin without putting a dent in your wallet.
Tip 1: Use your kitchen. Your kitchen may already store natural skin care products. Did you know plain yogurt can be used as a face mask for relieving dry skin? It contains moisturizers that sooth irritated, dry or scaly skin. Sugar or salt mixed with olive oil can be used to exfoliate elbows, knees, and feet!
Tip 2: Eat and drink healthy. This is repeated time and time again, but drinking water is good for a reason. If you don’t get enough sleep you will be tired in the morning right? If you don’t drink water, how do you expect your skin to glow and look smooth?
Tip 3: Invest in skin care products you really need and buy them at a deal! Buying several skin care products to treat different skin concerns can put a dent in your wallet. Spend money only on an eye cream for crow’s feet or a treatment for blackheads. We like the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner at $29.99, because it tightens and refines pores enough to make us not want to wear makeup. And it is $15 dollars off its original price!
Tip 4:Avoid the sun! The sun dries out skin and causes serious harm to skin cells. Freckles, dark spots, and wrinkles can come back years later as if your skin is exacting revenge on all the times you left it unprotected. You will not want to look at your skin and regret not taking care of it. As you get older, age, hormones and the environment cause skin to change. Have the upper hand and wear sunscreen. You will be proud of how great your skin looks at any age!
Tip 5:Drink Bloody Mary’s. Drinking less alcohol is great for your skin! But if you won’t listen to this rule at least choose to drink a cocktail that is healthy for you. Bloody Mary’s contains tomato juice, vegetable juice, and turmeric! Turmeric is an Indian spice. It contains powerful antioxidants and it provides anti-inflammatory benefits! This means you may wake up with less puffy eyes and protect your skin’s health. But do not overdo it! It contains alcohol remember?
