Being The Best You On A Budget

We’ve all seen celebrities walking across the red carpet. Their flawless skin, their perfect waistline, and their perpetually perfect hair. These folks, as luck would have it, have resources many of us don’t. But that doesn’t mean we can’t feel like superstars and our own skin. The following resources can help you be your best you, presented by Celestial Waves.


If you want to look and feel your best, you have to untangle yourself from your everyday stresses. There are many ways to do this, including scheduling solo time each day. An hour-long bath, a 45-minute jog, or even just an extra 15 minutes in the morning to enjoy your coffee alone will go a long way toward making you feel like a younger version of the woman you’ve become. Even decluttering your home and opening a few windows can help you release negative thoughts and feel less stressed.


Want to shave years off of your appearance? Try a new outfit. Coupons can help you keep your costs down. Promotional codes, cashback offers, and potentially unpublished pricing, coupled with coupons and smart outfit choices, make it easier to update your wardrobe without undermining your finances. You can also try changing up your makeup. Try a new color of eyeshadow, opt for lipgloss instead of lipstick, or plan to go bare-faced with nothing but moisturizer and some powder to reduce shine if you have oily skin.


For many people, going back to school is a way to improve their career prospects and earn a higher salary. But with the costs of tuition and living expenses, it can be hard to justify the expense. Taking classes online is a great way to get the education you need without breaking the bank. Not only are online courses more budget-friendly, but you can also typically complete them at your own pace. That means you can still work full-time while you're going back to school. And since most employers value experience just as much as formal education, you'll be able to hit the ground running after you graduate.


The digital world doesn’t always reflect real life. Sadly, many of us look to our social media feeds for what life should look like. If you want to feel younger and have more confidence, take a few days to detox digitally. Instead of turning to your phone whenever you want something to do, start journaling, play games with the kids, sit quietly or take a warm bath.


If wrinkles and sullen skin are causing you to over-age, a surprisingly small investment in moisturizer and taking good care of your skin is the quickest and cheapest way to look your very best. Mayo Clinic notes that

to look for in a skin cream. These include retinoids, hydroxy acids, peptides, grape seed extract, and coenzyme Q10. You can also merge skincare and aromatherapy by enjoying a night or day face oil.

Get Up.

Finally, exercise. Simply get up off the couch and start moving. It doesn’t matter what you do, and you do not have to invest in a gym membership to enjoy exercise. Plus, working out with a gal pal is a great way to socialize. One of the best ways to exercise and stay focused and centered is to practice yoga.

Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you have to feel that way. The above tips can help you maintain your appearance while enhancing how you feel from the inside out. And, when money isn’t in excess, it can help you keep your health and beauty regimen without a significant investment.
