    Inexpensive beauty tips

    Coming from a tropical country, I have bucketloads of cheap, over the counter, 100% effective beauty care tips! And no, they do not involve tropical fruit that you can't get up north (though I have plenty of those as well).

    Have you ever wondered why Latin American women look glowing despite most not having that much money for proper skincare? Your answer is here. (The reason I put it so specific is because a friend asked me that XD. I found that absolutely hilarious.)

    If you're looking for a particular tip just skim over the words in black. That should give the main problem you want to get rid of, because it's a lot.
    • Do you want to get rid of dandruffs? Wash your hair with vinegar (for some reason white vinegar seems to work best) before conditioning. That should do the trick.
      {
    • Do you need a scrub? Fear no more, mix canola oil and [U]brown sugar and rub it gently on your face. You may do it rougher for your feet. Note that I didn't say olive oil, ecause you would end up with spindles after that since it would moisturise your skin before there's any opportunity to remove the dead skin. Also, this is pretty stron, so only apply once every 2 weeks (1 week if you have greasy skin).
      {
    • Do you want instantly soft skin? Apply baby oil all over your boy, even your face. If you do not want your face to appear greasy immediately after applying baby oil, you may mix some powder base, but you have to be very careful about it or else you will end up a make-up disaster.
      {
    • Rough feet and hands? Soak them in olive oil before removing with towel paper and they'll feel soft the next morning.
      {
    • Need some deep cleansing in your face and make-up removal? Use alcohol to do it. Since this is not a specialised product, you wil have to spend longer to remove it. But it's worth not having to pay o much.
      {
    • Also, alcohol if you have big pores. Apply it 2 hours before, and see the results! Note that people with more sensitive skin types will have to dilute the alcohol.
      {
    • Have you just hurt yourelf and do not want to mar your skin? Apply some cacao butter on it AND LEAVE THE SCABS ALONE. I know they're itchy, but hey! Beauty is all about effort.
      {
    • Are you pregnant and you don't want any stretch marks? Rub cacao butter over your belly every day. See the results after the pregnancy.
      {
    • Do you have an ink stain from your pen? Yup, alcohol again will do the trick, be it your hand or your clothes (although, for your clothes, dilute it in clear water).
      {
    • And speaking of stains, do you have a hard time cleaning yourself and all your bottoms from blood during that time of the month? Put hydrogen peroxide (for your clothes dilute it and soak the in it). I think in some places it's called surgical spirit.
      {
    • Need help to get rid of your calluses? Buy sandpaper and soak your feet in olive oil, before procceeding to do as you would do with would. Of course, you have to buy the rougher type and be more gentle.
      {
    • Those gorgeous heels are killing you? Get a short nylon sock (less bulk), fold it in half and put it where your finger goes. It hsould stop killing your feet. For the heel itself, get a really fluffy piece of cotton and stick it in there. Your shoes should stop killing you now.
      {
    • Has your knitted wool stuff shrunk? Soak it in warm water with a little baby oil, leave to dry and then get out and stretch. The ends should be pressed between two heavy weighs (I like to use encyclopaedias for this purpose). Note that if your clothes look to fragile do not attempt, because you may tear them apart.
      {
    • A black spot is bothering you? After cleaning your face, and before applying any moisturiser, rub a garlic soaked in lemon juice over it. It should start disappearing over a few days. If it doesn't work you may want to rub alcohol really hard or buy an over-the-counter cheap clean-spot cream (surprisingly, according to research most of those work all the same for most people).
    And many, many more!

    If you have any other cost-effective beauty tips please feel free to share them!

    From my end of the spectrum, I've always been advised not to use alcohol to clean my skin. It's very strong dries the skin out, it's too harsh on the delicate skin on your face, especially around the eyes.

    I've heard that olive oil makes a really good eye makeup remover.

    I dunno... My family's skin tends to be greasy, that's why it works so well on us... Besides, Panama (my birth country) is a really humid country so alcohol does not dry your skin (in fact, it feels very refreshing and nice!)...

    I don't know how would that translate to, say, the UK or the States.

    another tips !
    Sometimes we can not afford expensive cosmetics. This is exactly the time I had in my life! Two jobs, but spend a lot of money to pay rent and food, I found myself in a situation, if I had money until the end of the month only enough food. So I searched and found on the Internet, cheap beauty tips. I was surprised by the amount of utility. Check this out: 1 Make sure your hair raise an inexpensive way, the brightness of dark hair is rinsed with diluted vinegar. Benefits hair lemon juice. Both act by sealing up the outside of the hair cuticle and hair helps reflect light better. 2. Scrubs Scrubs operations use natural facial massage swap for a handful of rolled oats directly on the skin – it works really well. Mix dry oatmeal and water until the paste is spread on her face. Lying down to rest until the dough is dry and then wash them immediately, completely with warm water. It works wonders and is the cheapest it has had the heart. Sunbathing on the beach using sand to rub her body, especially in the areas of cellulite. Although it sounds strange, helps a lot! I was afraid to try first. But I know that you always use this trick. 3. Save on the lip cosmetics lip gloss, in turn with a layer of lip balm after the application of color. There was a dry mask in a glass of warm water to revive. Double Eyeshadow as eyeliner, when applied with a cotton swab (cotton). Dampen the end of the sample of shoots () first, for dramatic effect. A drop of olive oil rubbed on the nails at night, helping to grow large and strong and is cheaper to buy in the store, have manicures oils. Powder eye shadow that stay longer and wrinkles of the eyelids with translucent powder dust first. It absorbs the oil from the skin and keep your makeup looking fresh. To dry nail polish in a hurry, nails with PAM cooking spray aerosol. Toner / astringent, witch hazel Use in place. No need to dilute the use of full strength. You can also thoroughly with a shot of Apple Cider Vinegar after cleaning, it resembles the skin’s pH. Add a few drops of your favorite toilet eaude to treat a little oil and use as a scented bath oil as cheap. Olive oil can also be included in bath water for a skin softener. 4. Dodge, you have to go at their own teethInstead the dentist, and under one arm and a leg to stop teeth whitening your Wal-Mart or Wal-greens. There are many home whitening kits available for a decent price. 5. For your acne problem and its cost of acquisition of the brand is used to immediately stop the treatment of acne. When a grain of toothpaste before going to bed when you wake up your face and rinse dried beans reserved. In the end I find an interesting book by Passport makeup artist Shalini Vadhera “the beauty”, which together form the world’s beauty tips and secrets of women. She learned many tips from other women on their journey. Here are some tips that are listed in detail in his book. BRAZIL: The golden woman knows that some of the most beautiful women in the world. Want to know there are some secrets? How about this? You are sharing the sand on a beach of cellulite and remove dead skin from the body? You get only a handful and start rubbing. Some companies are adopting this same arena in their soaps. Speaking of skin, you know, women in Brazil are known for their rich and deep. Learn how to keep your ID number? Before going out to sunbathe, you know that drinking carrot juice. Also, drink beet juice on a regular basis to improve your skin. Remember, too much sun can be dangerous. Japan: geisha are known for their flawless skin. One reason is that many love Camellia Nut Oil. It seems that oil is ideal for many diseases of skin blemishes, stretch marks, dry cuticles and can be used as a moisturizer. Can be found in the local herbalist. CHINA here in the U.S. we like green tea. China, on the other hand, uses a large amount of white tea in many different products. Some of the cosmetic lines have lines of white tea absorb. It seems that white tea has many antioxidants in them, and are useful in helping to grow old before. SPAIN women in Spain are known for their rich black hair. Seems to be part of this hair color is cranberry juice. The women here are known to use cranberry juice as final rinse. Mix 1 / 4 cup cranberry juice and 1 / 4 cup water and rinse. But if you are blonde, do not use cranberry juice, try using lemon juice. India women here are known for their thick hair, bright known. They love coconut oil. For more dense, shiny, or hair, try a head massage with coconut oil. Heat oil in water and massage the scalp of the head, leave overnight and rinse. Do this once a week. Helps strengthen weak hair. AUSTRALIA The women here love of tea tree oil. It gives the skin a youthful glow. This can help many problems of skin damage: Sun, acne, dry, and even some skin fungi. Just add a few drops of detergent or moisturizer. If shed can add a few drops to your shampoo to help, scales, too. Hope to get more tips and secrets for you.

    There are other scrubs you can use. You can mix carrot juice with brown sugar or salt depending if your skin is oily or dry.
