The problem with many beauty products is that they are so expensive. After all, we all want to be beautiful, and all of those products are priced accordingly. We'll buy them because we are willing to spend more on one ounce of beauty product that anyone would be willing to spend on an entire gallon of anti-freeze. This is because looking good is a very important part of society, and if we wish to participate successfully in society, it is important that we look presentable, and as beautiful as we can.
The good news is that we do not always have to spend a lot of money to look good. There are plenty of products that can be found inexpensively, and even more that can be found around the house. These products work very effectively and they will not break the bank. Plus, many of them are all natural. And in a world where all natural cosmetic solutions often cost more than the synthetic, it can be reassuring to provide your own natural solutions. They will help you save money, all while looking good and feeling even better about it.
Of course not everything can be done using household items that you buy anyway. Eye shadow, mascara, lipstick, and other makeup products really need to be bought at the store. But you can save money by purchasing a quad with two colors you like instead of purchasing individual compacts of eye shadow. Additionally, most of the brands sold commonly, like Cover Girl and Maybeline, are in actuality rather inexpensive. While buying very expensive makeup can make a difference, most of the time people will not be able to tell whether you are using a $50 bottle of foundation or a $4 of foundation. And there is no point in spending extra money to impress people who do not even know that they are supposed to be impressed. Really, purchasing from respected brands that are not necessarily high end can be one of the best cosmetic money saving decisions you make.
Other ways to get bargains on beauty products is to go through the mail. There are many mail order or Internet companies that are respectable and that offer discount prices on fragrances, body care, and cosmetics. By searching the Internet or getting a catalogue, it is possible for you to save money on a variety of products. One of these companies is Yves Rocher. The company even offers to accept returns, and it does not test on animals. This is a great alternative to spending money on department store brands.
The other beauty products - the bubble baths, facial masks, and moisturizers - can be found more naturally and for much less. It is even possible to create acne reducers and skin toners using common objects from around the house. These things allow to get the best bargain of all since they cost very little and can almost be considered free because you probably would have bought them anywhere.
Some of the common beauty bargains that you can find in your cupboards include fruits and common items like powdered milk and eggs. Many fruits can be mashed into purees that are very helpful as beauty aids. Strawberries act as an alpha hydroxy and bananas can actually help reduce wrinkles. A special mask made from tomatoes and powdered milk can help you fight acne, and every one knows that avocado makes a great mask, and that cucumber slices can reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. Egg white can act as toners, and the little pieces of skin that cling to egg shells can also be used to fight acne.
For makeup removal, you can use petroleum jelly. Simple massage the jelly in over the area and then take a tissue and remove the makeup. Not only does this common household item cost much less than expensive makeup removers bought at the store, and it is also less expensive than mineral oil or baby oil. Petroleum jelly can also help soften and smooth hands and feet. Even a thin layer of mayonnaise worn for 15 minutes can help smooth out rough skin. No need for those expensive skin softeners. With a little ingenuity, you can save a great deal of money each year on cosmetics
