Dr Oz did a show called $5 Friday to teach us tons of great ways to spend less while getting amazing results for everything from sleep to weight loss to beauty treatments. Doctor Oz was joined by Holly Carter, Beauty Director of People StyleWatch, to teach us how to Spend $5 to Look 5 Years Younger. You do not have to spend a fortune to keep your face looking young! With great products like St Ives Mineral Clay Firming Mask, Dickinson’s Witch Hazel Towelettes, and Dr Oz’s $5 Facial, we will all look beautiful and save a lot of money!
Dr Oz: $5 to Look 5 Years Younger
Dr Oz found two women with crazily expensive anti-aging beauty routines – though I have to admit that many of us (myself included!) are also guilty of paying way too much for anti-aging products. Susan has a closet full of creams, skin toners, and serums to help moisturize, exfoliate, and tone her skin. She even had a “Magic Wrinkle Wand” that cost $150 and claims to get rid of wrinkles. She plugs in the magic wand, waits for it to get cool, and applies it to her face every morning. Susan spends around $250 a month on creams and potions.
Dr Oz’s second guest was a lady named Claudia who spends a couple thousand dollars a year on beauty products. She even had a cream that cost her $340, which she says smells great but she is not convinced that it works. Though I must say, Claudia’s skin looked gorgeous!
Dr Oz and Holly Carter said that you do not have to spend a small fortune – for just $5 you can look 5 years younger – if you know Dr Oz’s $5 Friday Beauty Secrets. Dr Oz asked Carter how can you get the best value on a product that actually works? She said that you should try simplifying your routine by using products that get the job done.
Dr Oz: St Ives Mineral Clay Firming Mask for Wrinkles
Dr Oz asked Susan if she really thought that her “Magic Wand” works and she seemed dubious of this contraption’s effectiveness. Holly Carter’s $5 solution for fine lines and wrinkles is St Ives Mineral Clay Firming Mask which costs just $4.29. You apply St Ives Clay Mask to clean skin and leave it on for 10 minutes. It helps to tighten your skin so that it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr Oz: Dickinson’s Witch Hazel Towelettes for Oily Skin
Dr Oz asked Claudia if she really bought such expensive products and she said that she spends a couple hundred dollars on just one cream. For oily skin, Holly Carter suggested a product called Dickinson’s Witch Hazel Towelettes. One big box costs under $5 and lasts for an entire month. The Witch Hazel Towelettes contain witch hazel (of course!) and aloe, so they are revitalizing and refreshing and leave your skin feeling cool. You can even carry a few in your purse and use them whenever grease hits.
Dr Oz: $5 Facial: Carrot Juice & Egg White Face Mask
Dr Oz’s $5 Facial rejuvenates your skin by using items that you may even have at home. All you need are egg whites, which help to build collagen in your skin, and carrot juice, which has beta carotene that behaves like a retinol. Click here for the complete $5 Face Mask Recipe: Dr Oz $5 Face Mask
