This may be more applicable to the ladies of the community but the cost of health products is still a subject that should be revisited considering how expensive some can be. Whether it’s products that you use around the house or ones that you put on your skin, it’s important to know that there are money saving alternatives which you can create in your home for far less money.
Products that make us beautiful, or that we use to clean with, have some very basic functions and can therefore be replicated easily within your home. You simply need the recipe for creating them. In today's post you will find a compilation of recipes in the form of videos which will show you how to create products such as skin care, stretch mark cream and ones that fight oily skin.
Anti-Aging Face Mask
Beauty companies from a relatively young age try to convince us that we are aging at alarming rates and that we need a billion products to remain looking youthful. Generally speaking they're all marketing ploys to part us from our money for the next 'miracle cure', which of course you should ignore. Yet, if those adverts do get under your skin and you want to do something about it, here is a video that will explain a simple 4-ingredient recipe to create your own anti-aging facemask.

Plus, where there is a preventative cream that can be bought, there is also a DIY cream that can be created too.

Finding that perfect skincare product is a great feeling and we never want it to run out, so we try to make it last as long as possible.

There is a second alternative, head to your pantry and pick up the 5 products that are mentioned in the video below to create a skincare product equal to those luxury brands you keep getting tempted to buy.

Create 3 Essential Every Day Hygiene Products
Hygiene products are another black hole for our wallets because their costs can vary vastly, while their actual effects tend to only differ marginally. Shampoo’s, soaps, creams, lotions etc. all pretty much go straight down the drain, but they do keep us looking and smelling clean. We definitely need these products in today's society, however we don’t necessarily need the costs that come with them. The following solution is a lesson in how to make them yourself. The video below will show you how to create your own DIY deodorant, shampoo and shaving cream from common household products.
