Thrifty Tip Tuesday: Beauty Stuff!

So this week has been crazy! Jessica is in the huge process of moving and will be here in a few days (hooray!) and has all of her craft supplies packed up...

Jessica's living room.  Eek!

 ...and my (Hilary's) camera died. 

So instead of a Domestic Bliss original post, we are doing a round up of other people's awesome posts and ideas! 

Beauty stuff (lotions, exfoliants, face masks) are a fun way to treat yourself, but often cost money. Even a few dollars here and there can start to add up. So we are always on the lookout for cheap, but effective beauty tips and things you can make at home. 

Here's a few of our favorites! 

 1. Two-Ingredient Heel Scrub. 

This awesome step-by-step tutorial is on ehow.com.  It literally calls for water and Epsom salts. A great way to get your heels ready for flip-flops and sandals!

2. Lemon Sugar Scrub.
A friend made this as a gift for Jessica. Sugar kind of freaked me out, but it works really well, smells amazing and is quick and easy to make. That way, if you make some as a gift for a friend, you can double the recipe and make some for yourself!  Here's a great how-to from By Stephanie Lynn:

Totally gorgeous picture and jar too!

3. DIY Microdermabrasion. 
 Two ingredients. Baking soda and water. So easy and works amazingly. Helps with acne and leaves skin soft!

These are just a few of our favorites! Make these and give yourself a spa day.

 What is your favorite thrifty beauty tip?
