Hot Mama Tips: Beauty on a Budget

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

Nowadays, it is considered a bit gauche to spend a hundred bucks or more on a face cream infused with diamonds. People are focusing more on their budgets, and rightly so. The efficacy of any cream will be affected if all you are doing is worrying about paying your credit card bills or your mortgage.

So, how can you get beauty on the cheap? Here are some of my favorite tips.

1. Keep your razors longer Did you know that if you simply gently pat your razor dry after every use, it will last up to twice as long, if not longer? What dulls the razor is the buildup of rust, and if you can keep the razor as rust-free as possible, it will stay sharp. I swear I used one disposable razor for at least three months with no appreciable dulling.

2. Lather for less Forget about those expensive shaving gels. Simply use the cheapest hair conditioner you can find. It still smells good, provides a nice slick surface, and leaves your legs soft.

3. Organic on a budget Target sells Avalon Organics, and one of their best products is a citrus-infused day lotion with SPF 15 for about $15.00.

4. Double Duty Go ahead, let your products multi-task! Use your regular gentle face lotion for your eyes as well, just make sure there’s no sunscreen in it. If you buy an angled brush, dip it in a bit of water, then your eyeshadow to eliminate the need for a separate eyeliner. Tinted moisturizers also serve a dual purpose.

5. Vaseline Use a dab on your fingertips to smooth frizzy ends. Combine it with lipstick for a high shine. Combine it with your blush for added shimmer, but just a little! Use a small amount of it with eyeshadow on the browbone for more shimmer.

6. Go natural Many items found in your kitchen have been used for years as beauty aids. Dry skin? Dab some olive oil on it. Combine cucumber and honey for a toner, or yogurt and honey for a mask. A simple Google search will reward you with tons of recipes.

7. Your turn Share with us your favorite bargain beauty tips!
