Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

Do you have caviar taste, but are on a macaroni and cheese budget?  Gas prices are soaring and the recession is in full swing, but that doesn’t mean that the affects need to show up on your gorgeous face.  You owe it to yourself and your pocket book to look your best…without breaking the bank.

Sugar Scrub

Sugar: Save your pennies and skip the expensive, store bought exfoliator. Mix a little brown sugar and either honey or extra virgin olive oil into a paste to buff your skin silky smooth; your face will thank you via radiant, soft skin.

Spice: Quit pouting, there is a solution!  Cinnamon oil which can be found at natural-food stores for a fraction of the cost is the main active ingredient in many expensive lip plumpers.  Mix sparingly; a little spice goes a long way.

WineStraws

Nice: If you just can’t go without your teeth whitening visit or products, then at least make the brilliant white last (much) longer. Use WineStraws when you drink red wine or other acidic drinks and keep smiling those pearly whites all the way to the bank! (only a couple bucks for a personal pack of 4 re-usable straws).

Now it’s your turn to share your savvy money-saving beauty secrets.
