How much do you spend on the holy grail products that you think you cannot live without? Believe it or not, there are more affordable yet effective alternatives that you can use to supplement your beauty routine; and most of them are already in your kitchen! There are different homemade beauty recipes that you can use to maintain that look that your followers have fallen in love with. Here are some concoctions that you can try for yourself and share with your followers.
Coconut Oil Makeup Remover
Cleaning your face every night and getting rid of the makeup gunk is an important part of maintaining a clear skin. What do you do if you have run out of your favorite oil-based makeup remove? Whip out a bottle of virgin coconut oil and a piece of cotton, and use the oil to clean the products off of your face! In addition to getting rid of the makeup that you have been wearing for the day, coconut oil will also give your skin an added dose of moisture. You can also use this oil as an alternative to lotion, as long as you only use a dab for the key parts of your body.
Aloe Gel as Makeup Primer
If you are in the habit of using makeup primer to ensure that your flawless look will stay for as many selfies as you’d want to take, then you will agree that buying a high-quality product can burn a hole in your wallet. Good news! You can use aloe vera gel as an effective and affordable alternative! This wonder gel works in the same way that top products do and it works wonders for all kinds of skin. Dry skin, oily skin, and acne-prone skin will also benefit because aloe has naturally soothing benefits, too.
Whole Milk as Conditioner
Those who are fond of going to salons for weekly treatments will agree that maintaining a wonderfully shiny and soft mane can be quite expensive after some time. Buying tubs of conditioner can also be expensive after a while. If you are in the mood for a homemade conditioning treatment, then get your hands on whole milk and use it to deeply condition your hair. In addition to giving your tresses a nutrient boost, you will also end up with noticeable silky and shiny hair.
Honey as Facial Cleanser
If you have been using chemical cleansers for your skin, there is a chance that you are doing unnoticeable damage to it. Instead of chemical-based products, you can go au natural with a tub of honey! Raw honey will cleanse the dirt and grime off of your skin while giving it tons of hydration. What results is a noticeable clean and clear skin that will be soft to the touch!
