Greetings Thrifty Friends,
Walk down any cosmetics aisle and you will find dozens of products to keep your skin soft, smooth, moisturized, youthful and wrinkle-free. But one look at some of the prices will be enough to give you all new stress lines. Or go to a spa? Not if you plan on saving anything this month.
Why not invite a few girlfriends over for a 'spa day' at home and try out some of these treatments for pennies on the dollar? Add a bottle of wine and suddenly you have a party on your hands.
Scroll down for some safe, chemical-free, and most importantly inexpensive services you can do at home.
Keep pinchin' those pennies,

TODAY'S THRIFTY TIP:
Oatmeal scrub. Take 1 tsp of finely ground oatmeal (available from health food shops) in the palm of your hand, mix with a little water and wash your face with the paste. Slightly abrasive and very cleansing.
Sugar Cleanser. Soap your face well and add a small handful of sugar to the lather. Massage in for a couple of minutes and rinse with warm water. Great cleanser.
Cucumber skin tonic. Cut half a cucumber into chunks and liquidize. Strain it and you have a fresh and cool cucumber lotion. Use as soon as possible as it goes bad quickly.
Egg White Mask. Egg white is a really effective skin toner.
You can use as is, or beat it to make it frothy. Either way, spread on your face, leave on for 10-20 minutes and rinse off.
Tightens the skin and leaves it feeling smooth and satiny. It's ideal for greasy skin. If your skin is dry, add a tsp of oil and/or honey.
Avocado Mask. Mash and sieve an avocado and add a few drops of lemon juice to stop it discolouring. Add 1 tsp. honey, mix together and apply to skin, leaving on as long as possible. It counteracts the drying effects of the sun, softens, moisturizes and nourishes the skin.
If there are any leftovers you can always make a delicious guacamole!
