Dear Sharon: I want to try new beauty ideas but I am on a very tight budget. Everything I read about seems to show celebrities who have all the time and money to get beautiful… I wish! How can I try new things without spending a fortune? – Bargain Basement Beauty (Bloomington, MN)
Dear Bargain Basement Beauty: Money isn’t everything when it comes to making the most of what you’ve got- as a matter of interest, it plays a very small part in the mix to look great.
Being able to use $200 face creams, $30 lipsticks, and having a $300 facial doesn’t make you look any better than someone who manages to radiate on a far more realistic budget. Sure, all the fancy packaging and high-price pampering can boost your ego, but the bottom line is how you treat yourself everyday. Some guilty pleasures can come cheap. Learn to forget price tags and start to discover what works best for you- that does not have to cost a fortune!

How do I know all these thrifty tidbits to look tantalizing? Diane Irons. These celebrity beauty tips are from Diane’s book, 911 Beauty Secrets. Diane believes that women deserve to look great, feel great, and not spend a fortune doing it. She offers more, straight-forward, budget-friendly makeup, hair, beauty, and diet advice in: 14-Day Beauty Boot Camp, The World’s Best-Kept Beauty Secrets, and the soon to be released, Teen Beauty Secrets .
More of Diane’s pointers for the beauty junkie who wants to get back to basics:
Catherine Zeta-Jones keeps the high luster in her hair with castor oil and maintains her gleaming smile by brushing her teeth with strawberries– a natural teeth whitener.
Supermodel Giselle Bundchen stays shapely by pouring hot stuff on her food for a natural thermogenic burn.
Nicole Kidman rinses her fiery red hair with cranberry juice.
Jennifer Aniston took Courtney Cox‘s friendly advice to line her eyes with a matchstick!
Julia Roberts keeps her nails in top condition by soaking them in olive oil.
Donna Karan does a quick slim down by blending cabbage, apple, parsley, carrots, and celery in a juicer and drinking it for a day or two.
Susan Lucci observes a Portuguese diet staple– she snacks on sardines because their omega-3 fatty acids are essential for smooth skin.
Caffeine is the first ingredient in most treatments that reduce the appearance of cellulite. Diane says many top models and beauty contestants (yeah, they get cellulite, too!) skip the fancy-schmancy spa services and favor this cheap– yet slightly messy– at-home cellulite treatment:
· Get some used, slightly warm coffee grounds (yup, you and Mr. Coffee are about to begin a new relationship).
· Line the bathroom floor with newspaper and sit on the edge of your bathtub.
·Use a loofah mitt, or your hands, to rub your cellulite-laden areas with the coffee grounds.
· Most of the grounds will drop to the newspaper, but enough of a residue will remain.
· Detoxify the area by wrapping yourself in plastic wrap– seaweed is better, if you can find it.
· Let it set for a few minutes.
· To intensify the treatment, use an old-fashioned rolling pin to further smooth out the cellulite.
·Unwrap, brush the remaining grounds onto the newspaper and shower off.
·Do this treatment at least twice a week for top results.
Then again, Vanessa Williams keeps her gorgeous shape by eschewing caffeine and wheat- she came to this dietary conclusion by consulting a psychic!
