Although it is nice to be able to visit the salon or spa every week to get pampered, sometimes it’s just not feasible if you’re on a budget. I’m one of those women who actually prefers to give myself facials, manicures, and pedicures rather than going to the salon. I don’t know exactly how much money I’ve saved pampering at home, but I’m sure it’s over $100 a month, which is $1,200+ a year! There are many ways to save money on your beauty regimen, so I thought I’d share my top 3 ways to save money on beauty treatments:
1. Invest in a nail manicure kit – There’s something therapeutic about giving myself a manicure or pedicure. I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather sit at home in front of the TV watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians on Sunday nights while giving myself a manicure. For me, it’s much better than sitting in a salon. You can find manicure kits at your local beauty salon or online. Check out Beauty Express for salon services – www.beautyexpress.co.uk.
2. Create a tranquil atmosphere with aromatherapy essential oils – Women love going to the spa because it offers them a little refuge to relax. However, you can create that same atmosphere at home. First step: If you have kids, send them off with the sitter for awhile. Second step: light a few candles and heat up some aromatherapy essential oils in your favorite scent. Peppermint oil always relaxes me.
3. Give yourself a facial – Throw on your favorite fuzzy bathrobe, turn on some relaxing music, and treat yourself to a facial at home. Did you know that you can buy skin therapy kits that come complete with everything you need to maintain natural, healthy skin?
