5 ways to get the most from your beauty buys

5 ways to get the most from your beauty buys

Beauty therapist Esther Cooney shares her cost-saving tips and tricks with us.

Get the most out of your eye cream by using it as a weekly eye mask.

Apply all over the eye area, place cotton wool pads over the top and relax for five minutes. Remove with a gentle toner or cleanser.  

Body brush daily

You’ll be amazed how much brighter your skin looks. Be gentle and brush towards the heart. Apply your body lotion straight afterwards for a skin- nourishing treat.

Use shampoo sparingly

Focus on cleansing your scalp rather than the ends. You’ll find you use less product and your hair will thank you, too.

Make your conditioner work better

Wrap a warm towel around your head before rinsing to help the conditioner reach your hair follicles.

Buy a good multi-tasking hand cream

This will tackle all sorts of skin complaints. For happy hands, keep a tub near the kitchen sink and apply after every hand wash.
