After a rough year, most people want to spend their time doing things that make them feel good.

Self-care is important and will definitely leave you feeling good, the only problem is that it can get a bit expensive. This might not work for those that are trying to save some cash.

Here are some tips that will come in handy if you want to feel good while on a budget:

Self-care 101

No self-care routine is complete without a face mask to start the process. The best part is, you don’t have to look far for the product – you can make it in your own kitchen! By combining just three ingredients, this all-natural face mask is perfect for toning and tightening, and may even help prevent future blemishes.

Combine 1/4 cup oats with 1 tablespoon of honey and 2 tablespoon milk. Mix together well before pasting on clean, dry skin. Leave for 7 minutes and wash off with a clean, warm facecloth.

Feeling good from the ground up

Put your best foot forward by doing something as simple as giving yourself a pedicure. Trim, file and buff your nails, soak your feet in warm soapy water, buff your heels and put a slick of clear or coloured polish on your nails.

Slip into a comfy pair of pretty slops and you’ll float for the rest of the day.

Curly locks

Whether it’s your lashes, your bangs or your mane, it’s time to give them some volume. Sleep with rollers in, or even just the odd plait and wake up to luscious locks. Remember to run your fingers through your do as opposed to a hairbrush to keep the locks grouped together (not frizzy).

If you have a mousse at home, remember to rub it together in your hands first and apply from the bottom up scrunching the hair to maintain the integrity of the curls. It’s amazing what a bouncy style can do for your mood!

Burn a few calories

Feeling good starts from the inside out, so take the time each morning to wake and move your body. Start with a cat curl (on all fours arching and extending your back) to get your spine mobile. Move into a downward dog to wake your shoulders and hamstrings.

Slowly come to an upright position and roll your head from side to side, along with slowly turning your ankles. If you’re up to it, take a 20 minute jog around your neighbourhood to get the endorphins flowing.

Smelling great doesn’t need to cost a fortune. Opt for a perfumed body spray as opposed to a luxury perfume as those can cost . The range from Playgirl includes 13 scents to suit every occasion and mood.

Another way to add some scents in the house without breaking the bank is by getting scented candles. They will add some good vibes in the house, that will last for as long as you want them to.
