Wendy said: “I have recently started to add a little baking soda to my regular facial cleanser.  It works great to exfoliate and is one less product to purchase!”

Heather said: “Go to the cosmetologist schools.  You may get a longer facial too, because they have to ask their instructors for feedback… it is awesome.”

LaShauna said: “Instead of using cucumbers as a eye treatment, you can use potatoes to decrease the puffiness and dark circles around the eyes.  They also stay cold longer than cucumbers do.  Cold tea bags help as well.”

Valarie said: “My fave for tightening skin and reducing wrinkles (especially crow’s feet): 1 part (I prefer raw) honey, 1 part lemon juice, 1 part plain yogurt (I usually use about a tsp of each). Mix well and slather onto your face. Allow to dry (about 15-30 mins depending on humidity). Wash off with a warm, wet washcloth and pat dry.  If you find it dries your skin too much, use a bit less lemon juice.”

Karen said: “Wet an aspirin with a few drops of water and use that as an acne medicine.  Or mix it with your regular face scrub for a medicated face cleanser (do this per use).  Aspirin has salicylic acid which is the main ingredient in a lot of acne medicine.  Also, you can use honey with the ‘just wet’ aspirin to make a medicated mask.”

Vanilla Bath Salts

Sherri said: “Homemade chemical mask: 5 aspirin and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (I use fresh lemons). Mash the aspirin in lemon juice, put on face for 5 minutes and rinse, rinse, rinse. Takes off top layer of skin!  Then if you want to rehydrate, use honey and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Your face will be so smooth!”

Coconut Oil Cuticle Cream

Candice said: “I love the Crunchy Betty Sorta Poo: 1 tbs of Castile Soap and 1tsp. of coconut milk.. makes an AWESOME shampoo, best lather I have found.  I use it as a body wash also… it rinses clean.  I also love using water and baking soda to clarify my hair, as it does a better job than store bought products.  I then use apple cider vinegar for conditioner.  I have very curly, frizzy hair, and these recipes work wonders on my hair.”

Katt said: “I make my own bath bags.  I make the pouches out of old socks and children’s tights (cut the toe off the socks and string a ribbon to make a drawstring).  I then add Epsom salt, oatmeal, a few drops of olive oil, and some lavender oil or a fragrant tea (I like green tea with jasmine blossoms).  Then just tie the bag closed and toss it in your bath!  For best results, squeeze the bag.  My whole family loves them.”

How to Make Bath Salts

Amber said: “I mix Epsom salts and a splash of my fave body spray, with a couple drops of food color.  I knead it together in a bag and then put it in empty wine bottles or decorative containers.  It makes a nice smelling bath soak.”

    Coconut oil is a miracle moisturizer, and so much healthier than the chemicals you buy in the store. Great for dry skin! If the oil feels too heavy on your skin, wet your hands first to dilute with water, then massage into face.

  2. Karen says:

    A good toner/astringent is Witch Hazel. Apply after washing face with cotton ball. Easy and a cheap alternative.

  3. My favorite frugal face wash is a combination of castor and olive oils. It’s like a mini spa treatment. I posted about it here:

    I love to use grapeseed oil as a light moisturizer for the skin, especially on my face & all acne prone areas. It not only leaves my skin silky, it clears up any acne spots or rough/patchy spots.
    I especially love to mix with a couple drops of bright orange oil and a couple drops of lavender for a relaxing after bath moisturizer.
