Wyong locals, get the look you're after with a few simple tips!

Are you tired of spending your hard-earned cash on beauty products that claim to be the next best thing, only to let you down? We're here to help! Using everyday household items, you can create your very own money-saving DIY beauty fixes. Whether you've already tried a range of expensive beauty products without any luck or you're on a budget and need a low-cost solution, these beauty tips will blow your mind—and have you looking younger! From using baking soda to whiten your teeth through to protecting your hair with mayonnaise, you've probably never heard of these tips, but you definitely won't forget them!

Honey face mask

In order for this beauty tip to work properly, you need to make sure you’re using raw, organic honey and not the processed stuff. Raw honey has anti-bacterial properties that helps acne-prone skin. Just lather your face, let it sit for 10 minutes and wash off with warm water. The honey draws out toxins, which means it’ll get worse before it gets better, so persist and you’ll see results.

Conditioner shaving cream

Why spend money on a separate shaving cream, when your hair conditioner can do the same trick? Hair conditioner moisturises your skin and softens the hairs, making for an easier shave.

Baking soda teeth whitener

Teeth whitening can be extremely expensive. Instead of splashing out, try mixing one tablespoon of baking soda with 3 drops of hydrogen peroxide (found at your local chemist). Use it as a toothpaste for sparkling pearly whites! As this mixture is abrasive, it’s recommended you use it for 3 to 5 days, then wait 6 months before using it again.

Pre-shower mayonnaise

Before entering the shower, apply mayonnaise to the bottom half of your hair to protect the ends while shampooing. While the shampoo’s soap is good for your scalp, it can strip your hair of moisture, making mayonnaise the perfect DIY solution—just remember to rinse it out thoroughly.

Exfoliate with an orange

The vitamin C and acid found inside an orange makes it the perfect exfoliator. If you’re looking for a more natural and cost-effective product to exfoliate with, simply cut an orange in half and start rubbing it on your skin!

Looking for something more conventional?

While these DIY beauty tips will help make you look more beautiful while saving you money, sometimes you just need to let your hair down and unwind in the hands of a beauty therapist. We’ve found the most popular beauty salons in Wyong that can give you the ultimate relaxation experience.
