Can't afford new cosmetics this January? Revive your cosmetics with these home-made DIY remedies
MOST people are broke in January and can’t afford their usual cosmetics. We give you tips on how to save and get through the month.
Is your foundation almost finished? Simply open the foundation bottle. Add two spoons of your face cream, mix together and you will have enough foundation till month end.
Move! tip: Use a foundation brush rather than a sponge. A sponge soaks up too much foundation.
Shower gels can be a bit expensive and they happen to come in small size bottles. Buy a three litre bath gel and pour it into a smaller shower bottle. You can use it for both bathing and showering. Instead of gel, you can also opt for the bar gel which you can buy
HE BODY LOTION
This is an import part of your skin maintenance, yet it can become costly. If you are running out of lotion, you can use coconut oil. Simply leave it out the night before so that it softens. Coconut has good hydrating properties and also helps to remove blemishes on the skin. Move! tip: Do not melt in the microwave before applying because it might burn your skin.
The sun can cause damage on our skins over the summer holidays, especially for those who spent time at the beach. This results in the discolouration and breakouts on the skin. One would then need a mask to help with such. For an easy, cheap and convenient mask, add two tablespoons of turmeric and coconut oil together and mix until it forms a paste. Apply to the skin and leave for 30 min before washing it off. This will leave the skin clean, fresh and glowing. Repeat twice a week for a month for best results.
Move! tip: Use a glove when removing the paste as turmeric tends to stain the hands and nails.
Are your lipsticks nearing the end? Do not throw it away. There is still plenty in there that can go a little longer. Scoop out the remaining product. Add it to melted coconut oil and place in a lipstick or eye palette. Let it set for a couple of hours and then you can use a lipstick brush to apply. Move! tip: You can mix different leftover colours to create your own unique colour.
