How to Splurge on Yourself - When to Have Fun and Save Money
How to Pamper Yourself
Do you ever feel like it’s just time to spend some money on yourself? If you’re like me, this is one of the hardest things to do. You might treat other people—your spouse, your kids, even your pets—before daring to spend money on yourself. At some point, though, a splurge on yourself is necessary to help you feel special, too. Some things I’ll splurge on are personal products, such as beauty items that make me feel pampered. Here are some ways I like to splurge to make myself feel that I’m important, too.
Use quality hair products
Let’s face it. We all want to look good. Even when I’m working from home, there are days that I just feel better when I fix my hair and put on makeup. A fun splurge for me is a high quality hair product that moisturizes my hair, making it soft and luxurious—or perhaps a spray or oil that adds extra shine to my curls. Although I am frugal, the cheap stuff just doesn’t do the job as well, so there are times when I need to spend a little more to get the look I want for my hair, if only for special occasions.
Use good makeup products
As far as make-up, I don’t wear a lot of it, but I have found that there are certain things I can’t skimp on. I can use a cheaper powder or blush, perhaps, but I have to have a high-quality, often more expensive mascara. To me, this is a practical splurge. When I recently bought a higher-priced mascara (as opposed to the dollar store variety), my eye irritations went away. Plus, my nondescript eyelashes suddenly looked longer and fuller! Now, when I don’t feel like putting on makeup, I can at least put on my mascara to give my eyes some definition and add just a touch of glamour.
Smelling good is important, too. I like to treat myself with special fragrances from time to time. Even when I don’t splurge on nice perfumes and colognes, I will often smooth on a fragrant lotion that adds just a hint of a scent. A thick, creamy lotion offers a dual purpose, as having skin that is supple and soft to the touch is a nice benefit of quality skin products.
