Oh my God! You lean forward and squint into the mirror. Your pulse starts to race and your mouth goes dry. It isn’t, is it? It can’t be. Wait. It is--a wring! Sigh--another one to add to the collection. This will not stand. You’re going to go out and treat yourself to the best firming anti wrinkle cream you can find and show your skin who’s boss, right? But wait, what’s this on the doormat. Your credit card bill. Your heart flutters as you open it up. It’s…well, it’s not looking good. Where do you go from here? Do you resign yourself to digging yourself deeper into the black hole of debt? Or do you take steps to cut down the cost of your beauty regimen, right here, right now?
Scything Down The Cost Of Looking Gorgeous
I get it, I really do. Every time a wrinkle or a gray hair presents itself we’re faced with yet another reminder that, try as we might, we’re none of us getting any younger. We all aspire to the kind of ageless beauty that we see the Hollywood starlets display in their forties, fifties and well into their sixties, but who knows what kinds of obnoxiously expensive treatments they’re privy to? You might not have the income of a Sandra Bullock or a Halle Berry, but that doesn’t mean you should have to compromise on looking gorgeous. Very often, we overspend on our beauty regimen without even realizing it. By replacing expensive products with cheaper or home made equivalents, saving money on products that simply don’t work and addressing the lifestyle factors that diminish the natural beauty we were born with, we can scythe down the cost of looking good…
Find cheaper equivalents to your favorite brands
Brand loyalty is all well and good, but it’s a luxury that only the rich can afford. Very often we’ll head to a big brand simply out of name recognition. While we might be paying a hefty price tag, this doesn’t necessarily mean we’re getting the best product. Take a look at the active ingredients in your favorite big brand beauty products and you’ll likely see the exact same ingredients used in cheaper brands. In fact, just check out these natural beauty products which are all under $20.
Know what works and what doesn’t
The sad fact is that the beauty industry is a hotbed of myths and pseudoscience. There are shelves full of products that are cleverly marketed to make you believe that they will solve all of your beauty needs. They will be loaded with ingredients that sound impressive but won’t do anything other than slim down your bank balance. Avoid these impressive sounding but utterly fallacious ingredients at all costs…
