Today, I am compiling a list which I will revisit from time to time to discuss with you ways to make / incorporate items into your beauty routine that will achieve results and cost very little.

  • Some people enjoy steaming their face others not so much (but if you do try this tip)
  • Get a pot, fill with water, bring to boil then turn off heat place towel over head and let the steam come to your face ( I suggest actually adding a Green Tea bag during the boil process and let your skin absorb the green tea steam doing this for 5 – 10 minutes) – then put on a super moisturizer afterwards
  • Use Coconut Oil on your hands to keep them hydrated & looking young (especially in this harsh winter weather)
  • Skip the beauty creams touting vitamins with extra benefits (don’t be a sucker and pay for an ingredient that often has such a small concentration that your skin gets little of the actual benefits)  go buy the oil separately and add either to your moisturizer or beauty routine (try this vitamin E oil )
  • Use baking soda & water mix together to form a paste consistency then use this on your face to have your own home microdermabrasion  solution (don’t do this more than 1x a week because it’s drying, always moisturize afterwards)
  • Take 2 Tablespoons run under cold water and place in the freezer, after 15 minutes take them out and place over your eyelids
  • Need to make your skin feel softer on your feet fill your bathtub with warm water to the ankles,  combine some baking soda and Apple Cider Vinegar use it as a scrub on your feet
