I love getting time at the beauty salons just as much as the next woman, but sometimes I simply don’t have time or money to make an appointment in between haircuts. With a haircut, manicure and facial, I end up spending enough money to last me until my next hair cut. I can’t do much to cut costs when it comes to cutting your hair. That should be left up to the professionals at this Windsor hair salon. I did find some home beauty methods for skin and hair care. Here are the ones that I have tried and really liked.
Use sand for pedicure exfoliates This is probably my favorite at-home beauty trick. If you live near the water or have access to sand, just get the sand wet and exfoliate away.
Use egg whites for facial skin toner Whip an egg white until it turns fluffy and white. Apply it to your clean face. Leave it on about 30 minutes, until it is stiff and dry. Rinse with cool water. This leaves your skin feeling fresh and firm.
Use Vaseline to repair over-dried eye lashes Before going to bed, take a Q-tip and apply Vaseline to your upper and lower lashes. Leave it on overnight. It will soften and help re-hydrate your lashes while you sleep.
Use tea for under eye circles Take any herbal tea and brew it. Once it has cooled, use cotton balls to apply it under your eyes. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes. This will help diminish puffiness as well as dark circles.
Use sugar scrubs for glowing skin Take plain white sugar and mix it with olive oil and a couple drops of scented oil.
Use olive oil for shiny hair Mix a couple drops with your regular shampoo. Massage into your hair and scalp for a few minutes. Rinse your hair in warm water. This makes your hair soft and silky.
Use almonds to scrub your skin Take almonds and grind them to a fine pulp. Add them to your facial soap. For a softer scrub, try adding peaches, plums or apricots to the almonds.
Use avocado to deep condition hair Take one or two avocados and mash them until it becomes a paste. Apply this to damp, pre-washed hair. Take a shower cap and cover your hair for half an hour. Wash as normal.
Use olive oil to soften cuticles Apply a small amount of olive oil to your nails and cuticles massage into the skin for a few minutes.
All of these methods are relatively simple to do and are much cheaper than going to beauty salons for a facial or manicure in between hair cuts. I do not recommend cutting your hair at home. Please leave that to this Windsor hair salon.
