With the holiday season coming up, you may not have extra money to spend on beauty products–but that’s OK! These everyday household items can double as an effective way to get your glam on! After all, who says you have to spend a fortune to look like a million bucks?
Next time you’re in need of a beauty pick-me-up, head down to your pantry and give these a try:
Salt Spray: Want tousled waves to make it look like you spent hours at the beach (even in the winter)? Grab seltzer and a teaspoon of rock salt. Combine them in a spray bottle and spritz for that just-got-back-from-Tahiti-hair look!
Tame Hair Static: Take a dryer sheet and rub along the top of your hair. Watch your static flyaways tame down–and as a bonus you’ll smell so fresh and so clean!
Soothe Hot Tool Burns: We’ve all gotten just a tad too close to our skin with the curling or flat iron every now and then, and let us tell you, it’s not pretty! But fear not! Head to your fridge and open up a container of plain yogurt to soothe your skin. Leave it on for 10 minutes to allow the probiotics to restore the skin’s natural barrier.
Tone Your Face: No toner? No problem! Apple cider vinegar is a purifying agent and acts as an astringent. Use it to tone your skin and help prevent breakouts.
Combat Shine: If you’re prone to an oily T-zone, reach for a coffee filter. They’re made up from the same material as blotting papers, so pat down when you’re feeling shiny!
Shaving Cream: Are you feeling the fuzz but just ran out of shaving cream? Grab some hair conditioner to lather up your legs. This will still act as a hydrating cushion between your skin and the razor and will help prevent nicks and cuts.
Whiten Nails: Eliminate any yellowing of your nails by scrubbing them with whitening toothpaste on a toothbrush. The hydrogen peroxide in the paste will help lighten stains caused by dark nail polish left on for too long.
