These days we spend more money on how we look, and what we want to look like, instead of the essential things in life, like food, rent, and bills. Let’s face it, we all love looking our best, which is why I decided to do a write up of my top 5 tried and tested beauty tips on a budget.
What you need to know: I think it is very important to watch which chemicals you are putting into your body. A lot of products these days are filled with harmful toxins, that are detrimental to your health. So all my tips below include products that are either natural or organic.
1. Making your eyelashes grow
Every night before you go to bed, take an ear bud, dip it into a bottle of Castor Oil, and apply a thin layer onto the eyelid. Be careful not to apply too much, you don’t want the oil to run into your eyes. The castor oil promotes strong luscious lashes.
2. A nourishing hair treatment
Once a week, massage Olive Oil into the roots of your hair, and sleep with it on for the night. Olive Oil is extremely moisturizing, not only for the hair follicles, but also for the scalp. It help to rejuvenate the scalp, especially after these hot summer days where it tends to get burned, or very dry. The oil will help seal any split ends, promoting growth and fullness.
3. Natural make up remover
Coconut Oil has been a very popular product over the past year. This organic, virgin oil has endless amounts of benefits for the hair, skin, body and overall health. However, one use that I absolutely love is that this beautifully smelling oil removes makeup easily, doesn’t burn the eyes, and is a great wrinkle preventer!
Cellulite Be Gone!
One of the hardest targeted spots to diminish. We get a lot of queries on how to get rid of cellulite. One of our favourite cellulite reduction tools is a body brush. If you brush over your body with circular movements, over time this helps with the circulation in the body, breaking down the fat cells, and therefore removes cellulite.
Keep your teeth pearly white
Every morning, drink a glass of hot water with lemon. Not only does this activate your metabolism, but it is very healthy for your teeth. Lemon is a great anti-oxidant and promotes clean, white teeth.
