Skincare trends you should try at home today

The answer to perfect skin is to find what works best for your skin. The 7 skincare trends you should try at home today will help you in deciding if you should make new additions to your routine. If you have been reading my articles, you will find that I am all about saving money and my skincare is not an exception. So these tips are definitely budget friendly if you are a student.

Epsom salt bath

Have you ever wondered if Epsom salt baths really work, like people claim it does? Well, I can definitely tell you that it works because I tried soaking in it in the comfort of my small bathroom without the help of a professional.  All you really need to do is add 2 handfuls of the Epson salt in your bathtub, run the tab and soak in there for 20 mins.

For people who do body peels, I will recommend adding Epsom salt bath to your weekly skin care routine. I find that having a dead sea bath soak 3 days after performing a body peels, helps speed up the peeling process. The dead sea help lift up the dead skin on my body and this easily comes off in the water. While in the bath I also massage my skin in a circular motion to help remove the dead skin.


Dead sea mud mask

Dead sea mud mask is mainly beneficial to acne and dry skin. The mud in this mask is water based, so brings hydration to your skin. The main ingredient in this mask, which is the dead sea is known to enhance the skins ability to retain moisture because it is made up of minerals such as magnesium, sodium, and potassium.


Apple cider vinegar bath

Apple cider vinegar has a lot of benefits for skin, hair and weight management. Add some apple cider vinegar to your next bath and soak for about 30 to 40 mins. This beauty routine will soothe and nourish your skin because of the nutrients in the apple cider vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar is also good in restoring the skin PH balance because of its acidic properties. I usually dab a few apple cider vinegar in my underarm to get rid of body odor. Therefore soaking in water with apple cider vinegar will help you eliminate body odor naturally.


Bentonite clay mask

Have you ever thought of using a clay mask but wasn’t too sure of what difference it would make to your skin? Well, I have a few points to share that will probably encourage you to try this mask at home today. Masks containing clay are good for eliminating acne, blackheads and reducing excess oils. Apart from helping to reduce the appearance of acne and blackhead, bentonite clay mask can also be used as a body detox, to get rid of toxins.

I use this mask once a month, mainly at that time of the month when I feel like my skin needs some extra care. Just mix the clay powder with water or apple cider vinegar and smooth the past on your skin and leave on for about 15-20 mins, then wash off.


Turmeric mask

Being such a budget (How to save money fast) conscious person but at the same time wanting a good looking skin, am always on the lookout for beauty tips that costs nothing. So I was really happy to find out that I could use turmeric to get my skin to glow and I didn’t hesitate to give it a try. Turmeric has a natural yellow colour and is very popular in Asian countries for lightening the skin naturally.  I use this turmeric face masks once a month to boost the results of my vitamin C serum for glowing skin.



So give it a try and see how it works out for you.

    Epsom salt is one that I overlook a lot. Thanks for reminding me because I have some in the closet that I haven’t used in months. I didn’t know about using turmeric as a face mask. Do you make a paste and apply it? This is definitely one that I would like to try.

    • prettywoo
      October 20, 2017 / 11:06 pm

      Yes, the turmeric is made into a paste.

  5. October 17, 2017 / 3:25 pm

    Yes, turmeric is good for a glow, be careful it can get a little messy.

  7. October 22, 2017 / 5:41 pm

    Thank you for the tips! Oh my gosh, again tumeric makes an appearance 🙂 this is such a useful spice (its my go to spice for cooking). Thank you for sharing.

  8. October 22, 2017 / 11:39 pm

    I would love it if you posted your recipe for your turmeric face mask. I love dead sea mud. I love using it on pimples. I swear they heal faster!

  9. October 23, 2017 / 12:39 am

    Excellent article, makes me want to go to the spa haha. I’m a huge fan of epsom salt baths, I add a little lavender essential oil, it’s so wonderful and relaxing on my muscles.

  10. October 27, 2017 / 1:08 pm

    I use bentonie clay to wash my hair and as a face mask all the time. I feel like it’s a lot more effective and moisturizing than using shampoo or commercial face masks.

  11. October 27, 2017 / 3:36 pm

    I could really use some skin treatments right now. Didn’t know what’s turmeric before. Thanks for sharing.

  12. October 27, 2017 / 7:53 pm

    These are all really interesting. I definitely need to do something for my skin. I think the Aztec one looks super cool!

  13. October 29, 2017 / 1:48 am

    I’ve used Epson Bath Salts. I’m currently using the Aztec Clay Mask. I’ll have to try adding ACV to my bath.

  14. October 29, 2017 / 11:51 am

    I love a good clay mask and only just jumped on the turmeric on everything wagon. But I am yet to try it as a mask. I will definitely look into this. Loved the tips. Thanks!

  15. October 29, 2017 / 6:45 pm

    I also just recently tried this turmeric mask thing and was super impressed by the results! I’m excited to check out the others. Thanks for the tips!

      You’re are very welcome Stacy. Am impressed with your feedback.

  16. October 29, 2017 / 7:47 pm

    I swear by betonite clay and ACV, I will have to try the turmeric mask though.

  17. October 30, 2017 / 7:07 pm

    I agree that an Epsom Salt bath is great for your skin! As I have chronic back pain the Epsom salts are also great for alleviating tension as well! x

  18. October 30, 2017 / 10:18 pm

    I’ve tried all of these before and liked all of them except for one: The turmeric mask. I became as yellow as a banana peel, and the color refused to go away even after rinsing it, washing it with soap, oil cleansers, scrubbing my skin even, it just refused to budge xD and I had to stay at home the whole day.
    If you have a pale skin, I think you better stay away from turmeric

  19. October 30, 2017 / 11:49 pm

    Great tips for skin types, I would love to get one dead sea mask for myself, since my skin is dry and I’m having some acne as well.

  20. October 31, 2017 / 5:11 am

    Epsom salts are the best for any chronic body pain, it helped me through 2 pinched nerve situations. Now and then I will soak in a bath of Epsom salts to relieve any body ache. Did try the turmeric mask as well but found that it showed no results for me. On the other hand never tried Apple cider vinegar bath, never thought of it. That one I will be definitely be testing it out. Thanks.

  21. October 31, 2017 / 1:08 pm

    I’ve being seeing many of these more and more. The tumeric mask has been in my list to try! Thanks for sharing.

    I love clay masks, they leave your skin moisturized, flawless and clean! I want to try the sea mud mask and salt bath. Sounds perfect to keep the skin smooth!

  25. November 1, 2017 / 3:43 am

    I’m so glad you mentioned Epsom salt baths. Not only are they relaxing, but they’re a wonderful treatment for detoxifying our bodies. The salts help to bring all of the impurities out of our skin. x

  26. November 1, 2017 / 3:45 am

    loved all these ideas except for the turmeric- that stuff really stains.

  27. November 1, 2017 / 7:43 am

    I love a good epsom salt bath. They exfoliate so well without all the harsh chemicals used in normal bath scrubs.

  28. November 1, 2017 / 2:43 pm

    I will try out the clay mask, have heard it works really well for oily skin. Thanks for the tips

  29. November 1, 2017 / 4:14 pm

    I’ve always wanted to try bath salts… on my skins lol. Have you ever tried charcoal mask or coffee???

  30. November 1, 2017 / 7:20 pm

    I definitely miss the ability to have a bath. There just aren’t many that are large enough for me to fit into the tub that I have found. I am curious as to what it looks like with the dead skin coming off.

  31. November 2, 2017 / 3:38 am

    I love using turmeric and curd home mask for instant glow!

    I also use apple cider, as my toner, hair clarifying conditioner, and adds honey for my tea. Its cost effective and works well.

  33. November 2, 2017 / 4:55 am

    Great tips. I can’t wait to try the tumeric mask and the apple cider vinegar in my bath. I hope it smells good.

    Currently, I am using coconut oil mask it doesn’t work well, I need to find a new formula to fit my skin. I will try again this mask of your art. Thanks for the tips!

  35. November 2, 2017 / 8:10 pm

    I’ll definitely have to try these out! Right now, I’m loving the L’Oreal charcoal mask, but it’s giving a radiant glow that I’ve been wanting!

  36. November 3, 2017 / 3:03 am

    Great post! I really need to try out this tumeric. I have been seeing it everywhere.

  38. November 3, 2017 / 12:10 pm

    The turmeric mask sounds like a real treat, think i will give this a go as i’ve got turmeric at home.

  39. November 4, 2017 / 4:45 pm

    dead sea salts and ACV are such a staple in my winter bath and body routine. There is nothing more relaxing than a bath with these two ingredients .. sometime I add baking soda to the mix doe detox purpouses

  40. November 8, 2017 / 3:11 pm

    Gotta be honest here! I liked all items you mentioned but my favourite was for sure the turmeric face mask!
    First of all, I’m just like you: budget conscious + want good skin and boy do I love diy’s.

    Happy to see it on your list 🙂

  41. November 8, 2017 / 4:08 pm

    Have to try these! Great post!

  42. November 8, 2017 / 8:18 pm

    I am a lover of the Dead sea mud masks! My personal fave is Ahava…which I actually just used last night! I’m interested in the turmeric as well – will have to try that!
