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.
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.
