Beauty on a budget

We all love to be pampered, but with the economy in the shape it is in let's face it.... We can't always afford it. I have come across some super cheap ways to still get the same desired results.

Instant Oatmeal original flavor can be used for a facial. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and it will help to soothe and hydrate skin.
You can also use baking soda. 3 parts baking soda and 1 part water, massage gently into skin with a circular motion. This will give you smoother skin.
Chap Stick can be used for more than just chapped lips. Rub it on dry elbows, cuticles, or any other rough patches of skin to moisturizing. You can use it to erase mascara smudges, tame your eye brows, and fly a ways, and even help coax a stubborn ring off a swollen finger.
Expired sunscreen can be used as a shaving lotion
I have also used left over conditioner to shave with.
Clear mascara can be used to tame fly a ways instead of using hair spray. (My wonderful sister in laws taught me this on my wedding day)
If you are having trouble with static cling try rubbing a metal coat hanger or a dryer sheet on your clothes to absorb the static cling.
