Better Budget Health and Beauty Ideas

The health and beauty industry is always booming, making over $90 billion a year thanks to an endless wave of products. We are always looking for the next best thing to make our skin brighter or our teeth whiter, but that means constantly spending money on the latest fad to hit the shelves.

What if we told you that you can achieve great results by simply getting inventive with household products like Starbucks coffee or Colgate toothpaste? The following hacks might seem a little crazy, but they could save you some precious dollars.

1. Baby Powder for Longer Lashes

Products Needed: Baby powder, cotton buds, mascara
What it Does: Lengthens lashes 
Cost: $2*

Everyone wants to have long, luscious lashes that look full and plump, but with new mascaras coming out every day it can be difficult to know which one to buy. More often than not, the end result doesn’t look like the advertisement anyway. There’s a hack for this, too. 

Taking a cotton bud, dipping it into baby powder, and applying a thin layer to lashes before applying mascara supposedly helps the product to stick. When the mascara goes on it’s as if you’ve shelled out for some professional extensions, according to some bloggers.
