Make Laundry Detergent

It doesn’t take much to save money. If you look around your home at your commonly used items, you’ll find that you spend a lot on laundry detergent. Even if you buy off-brand or stock up when you find it on sale, laundry detergent is still expensive.

When I moved into my own apartment, I needed to find ways to save money. I starting printing coupons, which helped, but I had trouble finding many for detergent other than those offered by CVS, Publix, and other stores.

It didn’t take long for my boyfriend’s mother to hand over a recipe for detergent.

I wasn’t too sure about it at first because I have to use sensitive skin detergent, but I was definitely willing to give it a shot.

It’s been a year and I’m still using the recipe for laundry detergent. I haven’t had any breakouts, my clothes are clean, and I’m saving money!

Reduce How Often You Exfoliate

Exfoliating too often can harm your skin. It removes the natural oils and skin from the face that can actually cause irritation and inflammation.

If you exfoliate too often, your face may actually produce more oil in attempts to over compensate what the exfoliate removes.

You do not want to exfoliate your skin more than 2-3 times a week. For most people, only once is fine.

Every time you exfoliate, you want to use a soothing lotion to nourish your skin.

Hair Color Ideas for Brunettes


Depending on your complexion, what you do with your brunette hair can either make your face glow or it can wash you out. If you have pale skin, you want to avoid darker styles, but if you have an olive complexion, you may want to consider auburn highlights to warm your face.

Caramel Brown – Go with a lighter brown base with highlights around the face down to the ends of the layers. Great if your complexion is like Jennifer Lopez.

Honey Brown – For a blonde brown color, ask for gold and honey highlights blended over your naturally medium brown hair. This works great if your complexion is similar to Angelina Jolie.

Golden Brown – If you have pale to olive skin tones, you may want to consider asking your beautician for subtle honey and caramel highlights.

Chestnut Brown – Ask for a dark brown base with caramel and light auburn highlights to frame your face. The red gold highlights make your hair look richer.

Mahogany – Selma Hayek has a gorgeous look to her, but you have to keep up this color up with constant care, as the color isn’t blended. Have your mid-length and ends died a few shades lighter than your natural color and add chestnut brown highlights here and there.

Medium Ash Brown – Ask your colorist to work with your natural color, highlighting the mid-length and ends with blonde coloring; then get the haircut. Using caramel, you can can warm up your complexion.
