10 Easy At Home Beauty Routines to Try Now:
Many women enjoy a glow as the weather starts to warm up, and the safest way to get one is to use self tanner. I love to use this Jergens Natural Glow Healthy Complexion Daily Facial Moisturizer everyday. I mix it with my regular Differin Oil Absorbing Moisturizer Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB, and it gives me daily glow. For the body, I’m a fan of Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam. The applicator mitt is much better quality than many other brands, and they also have a gradual tan moisturizer that has a great smell and develops into a great golden glow. Before applying self tanner, use a body scrub to exfoliate and prep skin. Keep reading for the DIY body scrub I make that costs pennies and delivers serious results.
Don’t know about you, though every time I wash my hair, I blowdry it afterwards. When it comes to getting ready, I use smoothing serums, hairsprays, and curling wands. Try going without using any product or heatstyling devices and give your hair a break! While you’re at it, use a strengthening mask. Christophe Robins Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil will blow you out of the water with its scent and its hair rehabilatating effects.
Master an At-Home Manicure and Pedicure
First things first. Maybe now is the time to give your nails a break. Remove polish and let them breathe for a week or so as you liberally apply cuticle oils and hand cream each day. Afterwards, try your “hand” at giving yourself an at home manicure.
Clean Your Makeup Brushes
This is something we all know we should be doing, yet are we doing it? Now is the time. This spray on brush cleaner really does work, and it is oh so satisfying to literally watch your brushes wipe clean. This quick drying gentle spray lifts impurities and conditions brushes to they look and feel brand new.
Try the Hanacure At Home Facial
The Hanacure All in One Facial went viral on social media. Why not give it a try? At $29, it’s much less than going to the salon. And with its brightening, contouring, detoxifying, firming and lifting superpowers, you will feel like you just had a professional facial. The results truly are mind-blowing.
Try a Natural Deodorant
Native Cosmetics deodorant is the best natural deodorant I’ve tried. And I’ve tried A LOT. These deodorants are aluminum-free, use vegan ingredients, go on smooth, and provide effective odor protection. There are multiple scents, as well as a non-scented option. I love building my own pack, where three different scents are selected. My favorite scents are lavender & rose, coconut & vanilla, and cucumber & mint. Since I like to switch deodorants as I do my shampoo, having a variety of scents works for me. Plus, buying a three pack reduces the cost of each bar by $2, for a total of $6 savings.
Read a Beauty Book
Beauty from the inside out is always a good idea, and author Deepak Chopra, along with Kimberly Snyder, Hollywood nutritionist, have rounded up the latest findings related to the pillars of good health. Radical Beauty: How to Transform from the Inside Out offers “practical tips, tools, innovative routines, and foods that will allow you to achieve your highest potential of beauty and health.” We already possess many of the qualities needed for inner and outer beauty, tap into them to achieve your most glowing mind and body.
At Home Lip and Body Scrub
Lip and body scrubs are two products I don’t spend my hard earned money on. It’s too easy, and inexpensive, to use a dime sized amount of both sugar and coconut oil to make a lip scrub. Up the portion sizes to more of a quarter size and try a body scrub. Just be careful in the sh0wer as the coconut oil will make the floor slippery. Try standing on a wet washcloth to anchor your feet while scrubbing and be sure the bottom of the tub and/or shower is wiped clean.
Peeling Foot Mask
If you’re going to be at home, why worry if your feet are peeling? Maybe now is the time before it’s full on sandal season to bestow upon your feet a foot peel. It won’t be pretty for about a week. You definitely won’t want to wear sandals. Afterwards you feet will be baby soft. This peeling foot mask uses natural ingredients and botanical extracts. It works to remove calluses and dry skin while nourishing feet.
I use this electric foot file in between foot peels to keep my feet feeling soft and callous free. This rechargeable device can be used both wet and dry. I keep it near my shower and use it on a weekly basis.
Whiten Your Teeth
A few months ago I tried whitening my teeth at home with custom made teeth whitening trays. The experience was that of professional teeth whitening like at a dentist’s office, though the only time I had to leave my house was to drop the custom tray teeth molds into the mailbox so they could be sent to the lab. For someone with sensitive teeth like mine, I was pleased there were bleaching gels available for sensitive teeth. You can see my before and after photos, the results are striking!
