When you’ve got a busy life, many of the more luxurious beauty treatments tend to fall by the wayside. Especially if money is tight, you simply may not be able to afford to visit the spa or purchase that expensive night cream that you hear will make you look years younger. But regardless of what constraints you have on your time and wallet, there are a number of beauty tricks you can try that will help to increase your natural beauty without having to take cosmetology classes in order to achieve it. To show you how here are three inexpensive ways you can begin increasing your natural beauty.
Naturally Beautiful Eyelashes
A big beauty trend recently is having long, luxurious eyelashes. And while getting extensions or tinted lashes would be nice from a time-investment perspective, they aren’t that great from a financial investment perspective. But one way you can make your eyelashes look professionally tinted without spending the money on a professional, according to Amy Ahlberg, a contributor to Reader’s Digest, is to simply use your normal volumizing mascara and an average facial tissue. After getting some mascara on your wand, wipe the wand a few times on the tissue to get rid of the extra product. When you then apply it to your lashes, they’ll look like an amped up version of your normal lashes without the clumps that heavy mascara leaves.
Hair With Beachy Waves
To get beautiful hair each and every day, you either have to spend hours in the bathroom or money at a salon. However, you can get beautiful beachy waves reminiscent of a salon-style blowout with just a few ingredients you might already have at home.
Jennifer Goldstein, a contributor to Health.com, shares that by combining 1 tablespoon of sea salt with 8 ounces of warm spring water and a few drops of lavender oil in a spray bottle, you can create your own wave-inducing concoction. Simply shake up the mixture, spray it on damp hair, and let it air-dry for gorgeous, natural waves with no fuss and just a few pennies.
Milk Does Your Body Good
Getting glowing, even skin is something that you may have thought is only a luxury for the rich and famous. But luckily, even those with a tight budget can have beautiful skin with the help of a little milk. According to Sally Wadyka, a contributor to Prevention.com, applying a milk-soaked washcloth to the skin of your face can have amazing results. Because milk contains vitamin A, fats, proteins and amino acids, it has a calming yet exfoliating effect on the skin. Leave the washcloth on your skin for 10 minutes for best results.
