Us girls, we spend a s***load on cosmetic products. And hardly ever admit it all.
But why to buy something chemical, that you can get the same result with something you can eat and probably already have at home and it costs literary nothing? Well meanwhile you do the math, here are top 3 products that will become your cosmetic bag staples:
Cornstarch is Pinterest's ingredient number 1. From making home-made glitter slimes to being base of home-made cosmetic, it is amazing translucent powder on its own. So if you want to set your make-up, you can save those 500,- CZK ($20) in the piggy bank for your Stuart Weitzman's Nudist shoes (as I do right now) and just powder up with some cornstarch that costs like 30,- CZK ($ 1.1) in organic quality for full box.
Looking for eye-makeup remover, heavy duty cream, nourishing hair treatment for your split ends, body oil, lip balm, cuticle cream, elbow nourishment? Look no more and use coconut oil for all listed above. It truly lives up to its hype and it is so handy especially when you want to travel and need all that precious suitcase space. Plus you'll smell like a Bounty bar and your skin will be smooth like a baby's butt.
When you spend whole day on the sun and have fair skin as I do, you will be red AF and most probably in lot of pain. Your savior for the day? Plain white yoghurt. It will soothe the burn, hydrate your skin and you'll feel good as new soon enough. It is also very good for your hair as it reliefs itchiness, dry scalp and it will help out with dandruff problem.
You can play with these as a base and add some ingredients to them like cucumber or aloe vera to yoghurt, cocoa to the cornstarch for basic bronzer, beeswax to the coconut oil. There are no limits to your fantasy. So next time your about to hit Sephora, head towards the grocery store.
