Everyone has things about their appearance that they don’t like. Increasingly, people are turning to plastic surgery to correct these imperfections, but a lot of us are either too scared to go under the knife or we simply can’t afford it. Fortunately, there are a number of cheap, at-home alternatives to cosmetic enhancement that might be able to give you the look you want for a fraction of the price.
Most women have probably worn a corset at some point in their lives. Well, waist trainers are basically corsets that gradually shape and slim your waist. For the best results, people start by wearing the corset for a few hours a day, then they add an hour or two every couple of days until they’re wearing it all day long. Over time, the corset will reshape your waist, giving you a more toned, fit appearance.
Although Preparation H is designed as a hemorrhoid cream, people have been using it as a face cream for years. Simply apply a little cream wherever you have wrinkles or under your eyes to reduce puffiness. But be careful. Test the Preparation H out on a small area to make sure you don’t have a sensitivity to it, and do not get any of it in your eyes.
Getting lip injections is one of the most common cosmetic procedures, but you can easily add some fullness to your lips in the comfort of your own home. Just add some peppermint oil to your favorite lip gloss, apply and let it sit for about ten minutes. The peppermint oil will cause your lips to swell and look fuller.
Recently, a number of companies have released products, such as Nose Secret and Nose Up, which can reshape your nose without surgery. Similar to the waist trainers, these nose shapers are splint- or clamp-like devices that gradually alter the appearance of your nose over time, making it look slimmer and sleeker.
Yes, it sounds crazy, but snail facials are becoming increasingly popular around the world. Believe it or not, snails secrete a mucus that contains a number of nutrients, which people claim do wonders for their skin, giving it a healthy, radiant glow. It may be difficult to find a spa that offers snail facials, but check the places in your area.
Even with the recent rise in plastic surgery, it’s still not for everybody. But that doesn’t mean you should miss out on the benefits of cosmetic enhancement. So give these at-home alternatives a try, and you may be positively surprised by the results.
