Beautiful Skin On A Budget

    Brushing Lips

    Yes, that sounds odd but it works. Instead of throwing out your old toothbrush, keep it to rub over your lips every now and again. This gets rid of dead skin cells so they a perfectly smooth, and gives them bright red glow, too. Just put some Vaseline over the top and you’ve got a very natural, yet beautiful look.

    Drinking Water

    Yes, yes, yes you’ve heard it all before. Just remember 8 glasses a day and to take a bottle of water with you when you go out. Simple!

    Turmeric

    Dabbing turmeric mixed with a little water on acne spots before bedtime is an old beauty secret for perfect skin. It is said to dry them out to make them less noticeable, but make sure you cover your pillow with a handkerchief or dry towel to avoid yellow stains!

    Aqueous Cream

    This emollient cream, fragrance free and used to treat dry skin, is great for removing make up. It was once used as one of the ingredients in soap suds, but is hypo allergenic and comes in huge tubs. Wet your face, rub some over your eyes, rinse and rub off with a cotton pad. This is a great way to remove make up without harsh tonics and instead, moisturizing as you go along.

    Cucumber

    This is possibly another one that we all know about; placing slices of cucumber on the eyes to stop them being puffy. One of the worst things is having to go outside when you’ve been crying, or have slept badly. Rubbing cucumber juice over your eyes or spending five minutes in the morning lying down with some will take the edge off of puffiness.
