How-To Make Your Own Beauty Aids

Many of today’s beauty products are outrageously expensive, but you do not have to spend a lot of money to stay beautiful. There are many everyday items that will help keep you beautiful and you either have them in your house or you can easily purchase them. The following article shares some beauty ideas that will help you keep your beauty while on a budget.

Beauty TipsUse honey and yogurt as a facial mask. Yogurt has a lot of lactic acid, an AHA that refines pores, exfoliates the skin and helps stimulate collagen production. Yogurt is not harsh on the skin, and its creamy texture feels great on the face, just like Vivexin. Honey is a natural humectant that helps keep the skin moisturized and soft. It is also a antimicobial agent and can help treat cuts and minor burns. Like yogurt, honey is also gentle on the skin. Depending on your skin type you can mix these two products together and make a face mask. Put this mixture on your face and leave 10 to 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. If you have trouble with acne, you can add about five aspirin to the mixture.

Another facial mask you can make at home is a kelp mask. Kelp facials are invigorating and moisturizing. You can find kelp powder at local health food stores or online. You can mix the powder with yogurt or aloe vera gel and put it on your face. Let it sit on your face for 10 to 15 minutes.

Rosewater is another beneficial anti aging product that has many benefits and is affordable. Rosewater helps with aging by protecting your skin against lines, deep forehead lines and wrinkles and inflammation. It also helps fight against flareups and tightens and reduces the appearance of pores, which provides smooth skin. Rosewater can even reduce the production of sebum, the oil on the face.

Use strawberries and almonds to exfoliate your hands and feet. You will need about five ripe strawberries, one tsp coarse salt, two tbsp of olive oil and four grated almonds. First, mash your strawberries (do not use a blender, it makes the strawberries too watery). Next, add the salt, oil and almonds and mix well. You can put it in a glass jar and place it in the refrigerator for up to seven days. When you are ready to apply the mixture, clean your hands and your feet and gently pat them dry. Apply the exfoliant evenly to both your hands and your feet. Leave it on for about five minutes and relax. Once it has stayed on your skin for a bit, massage your feet and your hands for a couple of minutes. Then you can wash off the mixture with warm water. Gently dry the area and apply some lotion. You can do this up to two times a week. This exfoliant will nourish, exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin.
