Busy budget babes: Want to save money and time on your self-care rituals?

Read on to learn about my favorite pampering routines, along with highly rated products that cost less than $10 apiece.

Quick beauty tips for budget babes
1. Scrub your feet

Revive and refresh your tired, callused feet with Dr. Teal’s Foot Therapy. The formula combines Epsom salts, aloe vera, and coconut oil — for an exfoliating scrub that soothes and softens, too.

Find Dr. Teal’s Foot Therapy on Amazon or for less than $10. Check today’s price on Amazon here.

2. Moisturize your hair

Add a few minutes to your shower routine to work in a deep moisturizing hair mask. If you choose a product that smells divine, you’ll enjoy a mini spa experience — one you emerge from with silky, soft locks.

Try Maui Moisture hair mask made with shea butter, aloe vera, coconut oil, and macadamia nut oil. Amazon shoppers love the smell and the results, earning this mask a 4.5-star rating from more than 15,000 reviews. The best part? The price point is less than $7. Check today’s price on Amazon here.

3. Refresh your skin

A quick scented body treatment can soothe tired limbs and distract you from work and other daily stressors.

J.R. Watkins lemon cream moisturizing body oil spray is the skin treatment of choice for thousands of budget babes. Pick one up for less than $10 on Amazon. Then, take five minutes for yourself to enjoy the fresh-scented, cruelty-free formula of apricot oil, sunflower seed oil, and rosemary leaf extract. Check today’s price on Amazon here.

4. Gloss your lips

Pucker up. When you need a quick pick-me-up, nothing’s easier than applying a super-shiny gloss to your lips. Fortunately, the world’s most popular gloss is priced at about $5.

NYX Butter Gloss is available in dozens of shades, including clear. It delivers an incredible shine, without the sticky feeling other glosses leave behind. Check today’s price on Amazon here.

5. Love your cuticles

A cuticle treatment may be the thing your at-home manicure is missing. Soothe sore fingers and treat dry, cracked cuticles with an old-favorite organic formula, Badger Balm. Pick it for $6.99. It’s also available on Amazon with Prime shipping, but the price is a few dollars higher.

Now — the hard part — schedule some time on your calendar to work in these quick beauty tips. You deserve a bit of self-indulgence, even if you can only spare five minutes to do it.
