Whoever said that ‘beauty hurts’ was referring to physical pain from rocking nine-inch booties while our feet silently throb in pain or the dreadful skin waxing that has become a routine part of many of our beauty regimens. From expensive beauty products that claim to maintain our girlish glows to even more expensive clothes that we don to perpetuate our inner style, feeding our beauty and style habits can definitely hurt our pockets.
This hurtful beauty comes in the form of ‘over-worked’ credit cards, dipped-in savings accounts, and extra, unnecessary debt, all in the name of beauty; but unless you have plans of becoming the flyest homeless girl parading the streets, learning how to beautify yourself wisely, without compromising your pockets, is important to your financial future.
As economic uncertainty plagues us, cutting back costs and saving for a rainy day is important now, more than ever. Still, just because you have to increase your savings doesn’t mean you have to decrease your style. Consider these tips to keep you beautiful on a budget.
