Skin Care On A Budget

Just thought I would share some home remedies for skin problems! These are just ones that I have found work for me!

Face care:
How to exfoliate with sugar. 
Take about 1/4 C of white sugar, add enough water to make it thick and pasty (not so much that you melt it)
Using your hand lightly scrub in circles until entire face is covered.
Rinse with cool water.

Home made skin toner.
Take a bowl or old (but clean) container and add 4:2 ratio of hydrogen peroxide:water
After exfoliating your skin, take a cosmetic pad (can get them at the dollar store), soak it in the mixture.
Rub on your face, let dry and put on a light facial moisterizer.

Soft Feet.
Go to the beach, take your shoes off and walk around in the sand (preferably wet sand) 
Soak them in the sea water.

Shaving body hair.
Don't waste money on expensive shaving cream.
Get a cheap bottle of hair conditioner.
Apply to wet hair and let sit for about 2 mins (gives time to soften the hair before you shave it).
Shave WITH the grain of the hair to avoid ingrowns and use a 3 or 4 blade razor if possible.
Smooth silky skin :)
