Money Saving Beauty Tips


Image : http://www.flickr.com

Look after the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves … well that is what my granny used to say. During difficult financial times, it makes sense to cut back on spending and only buy essentials. If you have been making monthly visits to the beauty salon, then you can save a lot by using home treatments instead. Here are a few money saving beauty tips to get you started.

Salon treatments may include hair removal, facials and manicures. If you regularly have your legs waxed, invest in an epilator and do your own hair removal. Epilators are similar to an electric shaver, and remove even very short hair from the roots. Buy face mask products to use at home and give your skin a deep cleansing. Remove make up with your daily cleanser and open the pores by placing a warm towel on the face. Then apply your face mask and leave on for the required time. Whilst you are waiting, you can file and buff your nails to save on the cost of a manicure!

When you shop for products, take the time to compare prices. Look at larger sized containers, and “buy one, get one free” offers. Some brands are regularly discounted, so if you stock up when they are on offer, you never have to pay the full price.

Well known brands can be very expensive, and are not necessarily any better than much cheaper products. You could try supermarket brands for shampoo, conditioner and make up. A simple non-branded Aloe Vera body lotion is excellent and great value for money. Look for reviews in magazines or on the internet on cheaper beauty products. A well known supermarket sells its own brand of face cream which is only a fraction of the cost of products you see advertised on TV, and yet it has been clinically proven to be more effective!

Another money saving tip is to reduce the number of different products you use, by multi-tasking. For example, hair conditioner can be used in place of shaving foam; and a moisturiser or body lotion can double up as hand cream

To summarize, here are five ways you can make savings on your beauty regime:

1. Buy an epilator instead of wax strips or salon hair removal treatments.

2. Try supermarket brands in place of your usual shampoo, conditioner and body lotion.

3. Change to a cheaper face cream. Advertised products may not be effective as the marketing hype would have you believe.

4. Only buy more expensive items when they are on special offer.

5. Don’t buy shaving foam for shaving your legs … use hair conditioner instead.

Share your own tips with friends, swap ideas and see how much healthier your bank statement looks at the end of the month. A few pounds here and there can really add up.

Skin is one of the most beautiful possessions in our body. A good skin reflects good health and displays beauty of a person which requires a special beauty skin care Everyone wants to look their best and as beautiful as they can. Herbal remedies are popular among european and Indian womens from the ancient times. Garlic has well known antibiotic properties making it an excellent treatment for pimples and acne. Dilute some lemon juice with water and dab on pimples to kill germs, cool inflammation and improve blood circulation. A mask of grated apple mixed with a little honey is an excellent remedy for pimples. Dab a small amount of toothpaste (paste, not gel) on pimples before bed; this helps dry out the pimples.

To prevent hair loss you should have a biotin rich drink. Blend bananas with honey, yogurt and low fat milk. Drink this for a few weeks.

DIY Coffee Beauty Treatments


Image : http://www.flickr.com

Drinking a cup of Joe may make you feel beautiful, but can it also make you look beautiful? Heck, yes, it can! This is fantastic news for anyone who is a true Java addict because it gives them yet another excuse to get something more out of their brew. There are many home beauty remedies floating around these days, and coffee is one of the most popular. The reason for this is because coffee contains caffeine as an active ingredient, so this will work to tighten your skin so that it is firmer and stronger immediately.

One of the other main benefits of using of coffee in your beauty products is that it is full of antioxidants. If you have been reading anything about skin care lately, then you must know that antioxidants are where it’s at when applied topically in your facial care regimen. Antioxidants work to neutralize free radicals that readily damage your facial cells below the surface. If you do not take the time to counteract and prevent this damage, then that will work to cause premature fine lines and wrinkles, which is definitely not something you want on your beautiful complexion! Again, this is exactly why you need to rely on your Java as a leading antioxidant ingredient for your facial care, and it is something easy that you can use at home!

One more thing to keep in mind is that used coffee grounds are perfect for an exfoliant scrub that is both natural and gentle. Make sure that you let your used coffee grounds cool so that you can scrub away the dead cells on your face in a circular motion. This will improve circulation to your face, increase blood flow, and as a result, stimulate new cell growth. This is exactly what you need for healthy and radiant skin immediately!

Keep in mind that you do need to use old towels or washcloths in your coffee beauty treatments because they will easily stain. Here is an amazing recipe to use to create a coffee exfoliating facial. This is exactly what you need to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells from your complexion so that your face looks fresh and youthful once again. The best part of all is that it is actually quite simple!

All you have to do is use 1/4 cup of fresh, used coffee grounds that have cooled. They should preferably cool for about 30 minutes after brewing. Mix these together well with one egg white, and gently massage into the face. Allow this mixture to dry, and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. As you can see, this is something that is both incredibly effective and incredibly simple. This will enable you to remove dead cells from your face that often make your complexion look dull and flat. On top of that, you can trust that you are using natural ingredients that do not contain any harmful chemicals or additives.

I bet you never imagined that you could get so much out of your ordinary cup of Joe!

Beauty Salon Treatments


Image : http://www.flickr.com

Many people are nervous about their first visit to a beauty salon, and that is understandable because you are putting your beauty into someone else’s hands. If you have a stylist who is inexperienced then you may be disappointed. Make sure that when you make your appointment you ask for someone who is experienced with the service that you want.

Facials are very popular beauty salon treatments. A facial will stimulate your skin and can relax you. Facials remove the old dead skin and deep clean your pores. Your skin gets moisturized and the result is a brighter, fresher and toner face. The person doing your facial will evaluate your skin as to whether you have dry, oily or combination skin to determine which products should be used for the facial. Deciding to have a facial will leave you feeling pampered and relaxed, even if you do not select another beauty treatment.

I would recommend getting a manicure and a pedicure as treatments at the beauty salon. The pedicure is extremely relaxing as well. It begins with washing your feet in a whirlpool footbath. The pedicurist will remove your old polish and will gently use a pumice stone to remove rough and dead skin on your feet. You can choose from over hundreds of colors the salon has on hand, and that is usually the toughest part of a pedicure. A manicure will fix whatever cuticle issues you may have. Even if you do not have long nails, you can still have your nails trimmed, buffed and polished.

Most beauty salons will also do body hair removal which can be done by waxing, sugaring, threading or with lasers, depending upon the salon. I can’t say that any of these are the most pleasant of experiences, but you will most likely be happy with your results.

Some beauty salons will do makeup consultations. The makeup artist will evaluate your skin and based upon the type of look you are looking for, will make recommendations for products and styles. Clients like to make these types of appointments before special events so that they can look their best with professionally applied makeup.

Crochet!

Crochet! Review

Available at Amazon Check Price Now!

I’ve subscribed to Crochet! for several years. Through those years, they’ve improved the layout and offerings. Usually there’s at least one item that catches my eye.

There’s a good variety of patterns, usually an afghan or two, a baby or child’s item or two, household items, flower motifs, a few cute & some not so cute wearable patterns in each issue. You can expect some cute purse patterns, once in a while a scarf or shawl. The magazine seems to have a running theme that will last a few months…once it was flowers, I loved those, very cute, now it’s special stitch patterns…handy if you’re creative and like to design your own items.

Crochet! still uses some yarns I’ve never heard of, but they always give the yarn weight which makes it easier to substitute & there’s a buyer’s guide in the back of the magazine. I haven’t noticed many amigurumi patterns, but there’s been some. I made a frog a couple years ago.

The magazine includes a project page, Crochet! at a Glance, which has a photo of each pattern in the issue along with the page # it’s found on. You’ll also find a stitch guide, buyer’s guide info, the patterns are rated by skill level, & a chart explaining yarn weight. There’s a web page with additional information & usually an option to receive a free issue so you can decide if you like the magazine. You’ll find that info on their website.
They are beginning to promote their website more. The September 2009 issue includes some pattern photos, but you’re instructed to go to the website for the pattern.

Crochet! Overview

Crochet! magazine brings you today’s most elegant and creative patterns, all original and never-before-published! You get the latest fashion looks in the newest yarns and threads, plus afghans, doilies, baby gifts and more! Easy-to-understand instructions and full-color photos make your crochet expe
