Home Made Beauty & Body Care for Less

Use these tips to make your own beauty or body care products for less. Many of the products are easily created with items you already have around the house.

Cheap Facial Treatment
Why spend money for an expensive facial treatment when you can easily make your own facial treatment with items in your kitchen? This is a great facial treatment for normal skin. Take a look.

One cup of plain yogurt
One teaspoon fresh lemon juice
One teaspoon fresh orange juice
One teaspoon carrot juice

Blend the ingredients together in a bowl. Apply the mixture to clean face. Let it remain on the face for about 10 to 15 minutes then rinse off with cool water. Pat dry and follow with your favorite facial moisturizer.

Facial Scrub
This is a gentle, yet very effective facial scrub for normal skin.

Handful of oatmeal

Mix the oatmeal and water together to form a thick paste. Apply the paste to a clean face and let the mixture set on the face until it drys. Start the gentle exfoliating process to remove dead skin by moving the fingers back and forth over the face. Rinse face afterwards.

Bath Oil
Here is an inexpensive bath oil to make.

Sunflower Oil
Crushed Rose Petals

Mix the rose petals with sunflower oil in a bowl. Let the mixture stand for a few days before using.

Liquid Soap
Liquid soaps are very popular because they are easy to use. There is no reason to spend money on the liquid soaps in the stores. Get creative and make your own liquid soap and save money.

4 ounce soap bar

Grate the soap bar into a microwave able bowl. Next, add three cups of water. Microwave the mixture on high until it is completely dissolved. Check the mixture frequently and stir during the process. Let mixture cool and pour into a container for use.

Bubble Bath
Here is a quick way to make a really refreshing bubble bath out of those little pieces of left over soap.

Pieces of soap
Mesh bag with draw string
lavender flowers or rose petals

Place the pieces of soap in the draw string bag along with the lavender flowers or rose petals. Attach the mesh bag to the water tap as the water runs into the tub.
