    What would be your #1 beauty tip on a budget?

    We are all trying to make the same amount of money (or less), stretch even further - what is your #1 beauty tip which either costs nothing, or pennies only?

    Indeed everything now is expensive..sigh'. I'm thankful that my skin is not sensitive that's why I buy the cheap one's. However, I "only" buy face moisturizer and facial cleanser though I don't used it often. When I go out I just only used moisturizer, hye bro pencil for eye brows, lip shiner or lip balm. I do believe that the more you apply into your face the more it become worse.

    Drink a lot of water! It keeps your skin clear and helps prevent wrinkles and controls your appetite, not to mention all the good it does for the inside of your body.

      This was my answer too. Water, water and more water!

    There are a lot of people on the web, and even HubPages who are sharing recipes for home made beauty products. I don't wear makeup so I have no idea how much the stuff costs, but it's worth a look to see if you can make some of the things you like to use for cheaper than buying them.

    This is easy!

    My number one beauty tip is:  SMILE.

    That's the best, totally free, make-over that you can give to your face: woman, man, child.

    Why are we so obsessed with painting our faces to achieve a synthetic beauty when being kind, being smart and looking on the bright side and giving to the world with generosity and love are what makes us really beautiful? The best things in life really are free.

    Put down the lip gloss, ditch the powder puff, make love your foundation, take the shadow from your eyes and smile!  big_smile

    Have a wonderful day. You're already beautiful as Nature made you. Why hide it?

    Number 1 beauty tip - keep hands and nails clean. Number 2 - don't touch your face. Number 3 - eat lots of foods with a high inflammatory factor (foods highly anti-inflammatory). Inflammation is the number one cause of nearly every skin condition. This will help keep the inflammation down. Green tea is a great food/drink to incorporate bc of this, it also posses anti-microbial properties, and because it is bitter will stimulate liver function.

    I am thinking drink a lot of water, eliminate sodas completely (including diet sodas), exercise a few times a week even if it's only a 30-minute walk, eat natural foods, and eliminate as much processed foods as possible.  Also getting some sunshine 5-10 minutes a day is a good thing too (but sunburn is not good).

    I can think of a lot of things, but one of my favorites is Aloe. I can buy a big aloe leaf for around $2.00 at the grocery. I keep it in my refrigerator and it will last for almost a month.

    I will scrape out a little of the gel and rub it all over my face at night. The gel is clear and dries quickly, so you forget that it's even there. I do not wash it off, I just let it soak into my skin during the night.  It does wonders for your skin! It's a great healer and has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. It's natural Vitamin C and E is great for firming and hydrating skin. Hope this helps and you have a wonderful week~

    I suggest a line of cosmetics called ELF (eyes, lips, face) each item in the line is only 1.00 and can be found at stores such as Target.

      ELF is my favorite make-up product. Everything they have is perfect and it is good on my sensitive skin. Plus it is the best make up that is cheap of what I have found.

    Drink as much water as you can.. no other thing can be as simple and on a budget. It helps maintain fluid in our body. It help control calories, regulates body temperature, protects and moisturises our joints, transports oxygen and nutrients into cells, and a lot more.. This is an outstanding way to stay fit and have a glowing and spotless skin... Drink Water!!!!

    The #1 beauty -- and health -- tip is to wear sunscreen every day. It may not cost only pennies, but it is worth it -- it saves you wrinkles and, potentially, cancer.

    drink lots of water and sleep early! this will definitely help keep your skin youthful and look radiant. smile

    But I also agree with everyone who answered smile. It helps release hormones to prevent premature aging and helps keep the skin elastic as well. smile

    A positive attitude goes a long way...if I look at things with a positive attitude (when possible, of course) I feel better, when I feel better, I appear more youthful, vigorous, and healthy. It's free except for the effort of doing so that is smile

    Hello Alison,

    I noticed that you had several answers to your question, by the time I came across it this evening. So, I thought I'd take a look, just to see if any of the answers would match my #1 & #2 advice, which I share in my new Profession as a: Motivational Speaker. Here they are:

    1) Prayer: That is praying to God for strength, help, and for guidance.
    2) Laughter: Having an "Infectious love for humor" is an exceptional skill to acquire.

    *These two cost nothing. To the contrary, they can add an infinite amount of enhancements to ones life.

    Best regards, Sapphireid

    I also agree with the maximum number of suggestion: smile. Smile always. It makes others happy and you beautiful. Drink plenty of water and sleep well.

    I used to have really dry skin. But I don't anymore. Also everyone keeps telling me how soft my hands and skin is and they like feeling my skin cause of it softness. What I normally do is most of the time in the winter I would take a milk bath. adding a few cups of milk to a hot water bath along with baking soda in the mixture.. but lets be frank. we all are busy and don't have time for that. What I tend to do is I have a container in the shower mixed with baking soda and brown sugar. Baking soda helps removing dead skin. Brown sugar helps bringing moisture to the skin as well. I tend to use this mixture all the time on my face cause I used to have a really bad dry face and it was really bad on my forehead. Now I don't have a problem with that. and another tip I will share is.

    I worked in the resturant buisness and I have allergies so I sneeze and wash my hands a lot. I found that my hands start burning. cracking and bleeding from being so dry cause the soap isn't well with my skin. The best thing that I would do is after washing my hands. I would scrub them with brown sugar. then they feel as soft and smooth and healthy.
