Money-saving beauty tips


Continuing our mission to get you looking and feeling great whilst saving you money along the way, the team here at has looked high and low to find you a wacky and wonderful selection of beauty tips. Why not give them a try and let us know whether you have any favourites on our Facebook page.


Avoid puffy eyes


Try to sleep slightly propped to reduce puffy eyes. When you sleep flat, all of the hydration can pool around the under eye area which means you can wake up with a lot of puffiness. Sleeping propped up ensures that everything drains out of your face efficiently, and you don’t wake up with big swollen and puffy eyes. We’re not suggesting that you sleep bolt upright, but an extra pillow or two will do the trick.


Make your Foundation go the extra mile


Use up any foundations that you’ve bought that aren’t the right shade for you by mixing them together to get the right shade. You can also add moisturiser to them to change the texture and make them go further.


Tame your frizzy hair


Transform desperately dry and frizzy locks into glossy, glamorous hair in seconds without the fussy brushes and expensive styling products. Simply grab an unscented body butter and massage a pea-sized amount into the ends for instantly super soft and hydrated locks


Heal skin blemishes


Cover skin blemishes with a dab of honey and place a plaster over it overnight. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile and speeds healing.


Make the most of your body lotion


Applying body lotion straight after the bath/shower on a damp skin is more effective, which means you need to apply less product.


Keep your razors sharp


Rinse your razor in ice-cold water after use. It will keep the blades sharp for longer.


Swap your foundation for tinted moisturiser


Trade in your normal foundation for a tinted moisturiser with SPF to protect skin from sun damage. This will pay off in the long run as the SPF will keep your skin looking better for longer, plus thick foundations can sometimes block pores and aggravate skin causing blemishes and uneven skin tone.


Pomegranate spot healer


Save on expensive spot zapping treatments that can often dry skin by dabbing the juice from a fresh pomegranate directly on a spot. It will zap the blemish with a mega dose of anti-oxidants.


DIY Facials


To help yourself, try firming your face with facial exercises. The key is to use manual resistance facial exercises such as FlexEffect. These may look extreme, but they will not add to your wrinkles. However, these exercises take patience and persistence – initial changes to your skin should be seen within three months.


DIY Hair Treatment


To treat damaged hair. Mix 1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil, with 20 drops of rosemary essential oil. Coat your hair in the oil mixture, then cover it with a shower cap, wait for 30 minutes and rinse.


Cheap alternative to shaving foam


Use conditioner on your legs rather than shaving foam. It’s cheaper, you don’t need as much, and you have it already – plus it moisturises whilst giving you a smooth shave!


Prevent blisters in new shoes


No need to expensive remedies here. Before you put your feet into your new sandals, apply Vaseline to prevent them rubbing and causing blisters.


Invest in a good haircut


Think long term – spend a bit more on day-1 to save long term. Although a good hair cut can be a little bit costly, a great haircut will give you longevity and longer lasting results compared to an average one, so although you may be spending more short-term, you’ll reap the rewards with longer lasting, beautiful locks.


Give yourself a good Blowdry


The better the blow dry, the less product you should need, so be sure to blow dry from wet – don’t be tempted to towel dry first. Dry in sections from wet with a bristle brush. The best test before moving on to the next section is to ensure each section is properly dry – if it is it will fall off the brush easily and feel cool.
