Experiment with homemade products. Honey and olive oil are great for hair. Oatmeal and milk work wonders on skin.

My best skin tip is to use moisturizers with spf daily. You don’t need to buy very expensive brands. There’s many well known brands that work great and are reasonably priced.
Thanks so much.

Hi! This year I started learning about DIY skin+haircare. There’s a lot of free information online about how to save $ and treat your body better with homemade creations that are actually better for you than most store-bought. I recently used some leftover canned pumpkin and mixed in lots of brown sugar and cinnamon to make a natural scrub. It’s great knowing I could safely lick it off my face 🙂 I’ve also been using coconut oil as a body moisturizer and olive oil on split ends.

Two or three times a year I put olive oil on my hair, concentrating on the ends…and wrap in a towel, letting it sit for about half an hour. Then I rinse it out. It removes hairspray build-up and leaves my hair shiny and very soft for quite some time after.

My favorite budget conscious tip is to use ice water when you shave. Just rinsing your razor in ice cold water will help keep your razor sharp. Your razors can last longer, sometimes twice as long.Because as we all know razors are expensive.
