Discovering Frugal Beauty Tips

Sometimes, frugal beauty tips feels like an oxymoron of sorts; we are taught that beauty is a luxury, and if we don't have time to pamper our skins and our bodies that we don't deserve to be beautiful.

You'll find, though, that even if you don't have the time or the cash for a full day spa treatment, that it doesn't mean you have to suffer!

There are many wonderfully natural and entirely affordable ways that can leave you looking great, so just keep these frugal beauty tips in mind.

Frugal Hair Care

Hair is something that many people think about when it comes to beauty, and you may already be wincing about how much money you spend on things like shampoos and conditioners.

When thinking about frugal beauty tips for your hair, remember how your hair works and what it needs.

For instance, you can cut down on shampoo and conditioner use by only washing your hair every other day. Far from making your hair feel dirty, this will give your hair a longer cycle.

Daily washing will strip your hair of necessary oils, and you'll spend a lot less time trying to re-moisturize it if you cut back on the washing.

Frugal Skin Care

One great way to treat your skin is to give it a hot oil treatment. For this, all you need is some kind of oil, a towel and some hot water. Coconut oil can be used for this purpose, but it can be a little heavy.

Some people use extra virgin olive oil, while others will use walnut oil or almond oil. While these oils can be a little pricey, they last a very long time if you are only using it for this purpose and you can buy a small bottle.

Spread the oil into the skin of your face and massage it in thoroughly. You'll find that the oil catches the dirt that is in your pores and holds it.

Soak the towel in hot water and then wring it nearly dry before spreading it over your face for a minute, allowing your pores to open, before wiping the oil away.

This is one of the most thorough ways that you can clean your face of dirt and grime and it has been used in India for centuries.

Multi Purpose Alternative Frugal Beauty Tips

Invest in a jar of coconut oil. This can be used on your skin, your hair and your nails, so it's quite multi-purpose. If you shower in the morning, slick your fingers with it and run it through your hair the night before.

This will act as a great deep condition that you can rinse out in the morning, and you might be able to do away with the need for a conditioner at all. To keep your nails supple and smooth, rub a tiny dab of coconut oil into the nail; this will also keep your nail from being brittle or breaking.

These recipes have been used for hundreds of years and are still good today as they were then.
