Fortunately, there are several affordable items available that can help take the edge off a long day. These items can help you find calm during a stressful day and help you enjoy a more restful night, all without costing you more than $20!</p> <h2>1. Lavender everything</h2> <p>The scent of lavender takes us to a calm place in an instant. And luckily, you can find just about anything scented in lavender &mdash; from candles and skin care items to hot teas to air fresheners. You can also place a couple drops of <a href="http://amzn.to/2pXuaJ2" target="_blank">lavender oil</a> on your pillow case (from a bottle that'll cost you no more than $15), in your DIY home spray, or in an aromatherapy oil diffuser and enjoy the benefits of this calming scent.</p> <h2>2. Himalayan salt lamps</h2> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/2pV0LPj" target="_blank">Himalayan salt lamps</a> are said to emit negative ions that can fight anxiety-inducing positive ions, and only cost $15&ndash;$20, depending on the size you get. They are also very calming to look at and can help you reach a calmer mindset just by having them in the room.</p> <h2>3. Skin care items</h2> <p>Skin care items can help you enjoy a spalike experience from home, so you can still enjoy the relaxing benefits without having to break your budget at the spa. You can find anything in stress relieving varieties, including <a href="http://amzn.to/2qTFYt3" target="_blank">body wash</a>, body lotion, exfoliator, and <a href="http://amzn.to/2qTeNOY" target="_blank">bubble bath</a>. Look for lavender or eucalyptus scents, and you won't even spend more than $10-$15!</p> <h2>4. Stress balls</h2> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/2pZxNfv" target="_blank">Squishy stress balls</a> or <a href="http://amzn.to/2pV3eJr" target="_blank">Chinese stress balls</a> can give you something calming to squeeze to help relieve stress and lower your blood pressure.

Adult coloring books</h2> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/2qTotJp" target="_blank">Adult coloring books</a> can relieve stress by helping you focus on a monotonous, rewarding task.

Journal</h2> <p>Keep a <a href="http://amzn.to/2pdRJhn" target="_blank">journal</a> with you at all times for a relaxing, rewarding experience &mdash; for only $10-$15.

It's important to keep track, because using spoiled cosmetics and skin care products can cause skin or eye problems.</p> <p>Some items are worse than others. For instance, using expired mascara can lead to staph infections, pinkeye, or eye irritations that can even affect your vision in rare cases. Expired items also lose their efficiency. Many professionals agree that you have to use about 50 percent more of an old or expired product for the same effect of a new one. They can become more difficult to apply, too, so it's best to just replace your beauty products once they have expired.</p> <h2>Where to find the expiration date</h2> <p>In order to keep track of when your items expire, you need to know exactly where to look for the expiration date.</p> <ul> <li>Check the whole container: Expiration dates can be hard to find, so look all around the bottle, including on the bottom and sides of the container.<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li>If you don't see an expiration date, look for the little tub image, usually located on the back of the container toward the bottom. For certain cosmetics, the image may be on the exterior packaging that you usually throw away once you open the product. The tub has a number followed by an &quot;M&quot;, which shows the number of months until the product expires. For instance, 12M means that the product will expire in 12 months.<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li>If you're not sure when your items are expected to expire, look for changes in smell, color, consistency, or effectiveness as a good determination that they may have spoiled.</li> </ul> <h2>Standard expiration guidelines</h2> <p>The following guidelines can provide a good estimate of when certain cosmetics will expire. Some beauty experts recommend tossing items more quickly than others, so these guidelines follow the general consensus. They stray toward later expiration dates so you don't have to waste any product unnecessarily.</p> <h3>Lipstick and lip gloss</h3> <p>Some experts say lipstick can last one to two years, others say up to four years. What everyone agrees on is that once it starts to smells rancid, it's time to throw it out. If your lipstick has become dry or your lip gloss is extra sticky, it may also be time to throw it out.</p> <h3>Brushes</h3> <p>Makeup brushes can last forever if maintained well (see below for tips on how to care for them). If the little hairs start getting crunchy or falling out, it's time to replace the brush.</p> <h3>Nail Polish</h3> <p>Nail polish can last up to three years. If it starts to separate and won't fully mix up when you shake the bottle or if it gets gunky and doesn't provide a clean, smooth finish, it needs to be thrown out.</p> <h3>Perfume</h3> <p>Some experts say perfume is kaput after one to two, others say it can last as long as 10 years. The general consensus is that if it has thickened, changed color, or the scent starts to change or takes on the smell of alcohol, it's time to toss it.</p> <h3>Powder vs. liquid cosmetics</h3> <p>Cream-based or oil-based foundation, eye shadow, and blush is typically only good for 12&ndash;18 months. They tend to break down faster than powder-based cosmetics due to the moisture and oil content. Water-based foundation also expires quickly (six to 12 months) because water encourages bacteria growth. Conversely, powder makeup can be kept for two to three years because the dry texture inhibits bacterial growth.</p> <h2>How to keep track</h2> <p>Permanent markers or small labels are your friend here. Mark each product with the date you bought it and the expiration date, if it&rsquo;s not already printed on the product itself. Keep a monthly list of what is expiring for at least the current month and next month, so you know what needs to be used up soon. By keeping track of these &quot;expiring-soon&quot; products, you can try to use them up quickly, so you don't waste money on unused product.</p> <h2>How to get more out of your products</h2> <p>To prolong the useful life of your cosmetics, follow these tips:</p> <ul> <li>Don't share your makeup with others to avoid contamination<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li>Keep makeup pencils sharpened often and leave the cap on<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li>Use brushes and sponges instead of your fingers to apply makeup to avoid contamination<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li>Store your makeup in a cool, dry, dark place<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li>Avoid using products on infected or inflamed skin or eyes<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li>Invest in a <a href="http://amzn.to/2ptUyKb">beauty spatula</a> so you can get every last drop out of the bottle<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li>Wipe your brushes daily and deep clean them every week or so with a good <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/the-5-best-makeup-brush-cleaners">makeup brush cleaner</a></li> </ul> <h2>What can be kept past the date?</h2> <p>If you really can&rsquo;t part with your favorite beauty product, there might be hope for it yet. Some items can be kept past the expiration date (such as powder makeup) because bacteria can&rsquo;t grow as quickly on the dry texture. Items such as perfume, nail polish, lipstick, and blush commonly last past the expiration date, but the performance and results might not be the same.</p> <p>Expiration dates for any item that touches your eyes or is made with a cream or oil base should be strictly adhered to in order to prevent skin or eye infections. If your skin is reacting badly to an item or the color, smell, or consistency has changed, it&rsquo;s a good indication that the item is past its useful life.</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/andrea-cannon">Andrea Cannon</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/heres-how-long-your-beauty-products-really-last">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

It's been well documented that there is a &quot;<a href="http://www.wisebread.com/4-ways-women-can-avoid-paying-the-pink-tax?ref=internal" target="_blank">pink tax</a>&quot; on everything from women's toiletries to girls' toys simply because they have pink butterfly designs on them.</p> <p>But not every instance of women's products is just a cynical cash grab. In some cases, products are actually formulated differently for men and women, and it might make sense to spend a little extra money on the product that is going to work better for you. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/6-products-that-cost-more-for-women-than-for-men?ref=seealso" target="_blank">6 Products That Cost More for Women Than for Men</a>)</p> <p>Here are four gendered products that you might consider buying, no matter what color they come in.</p> <h2>Razors</h2> <p>It may seem as if the only difference between a razor marketed to men and one marketed to women is the color of the packaging. But there are some important, if subtle, differences in these products.</p> <p>To start, it's important to note that the razor blades themselves are identical in men's and women's razors. There is no difference whatsoever between the &quot;blade technology&quot; used in the two types of products.</p> <p>The differences between these razors lie in the handle of each razor, and the positioning of the blades. In men's razors, the <a href="http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2014/10/really-difference-mens-womens-razors-shaving-creams/" target="_blank">blades are often set at a more oblique angle</a> with a different handle contour, which makes it easier for a shaver to see what he is doing while shaving his face in front of a mirror. The angle and handle contour on women's razors are made to be easier to use when looking down at your legs while shaving.</p> <p>The angle of the blades helps explain why some consumers claim that men's razors provide a closer shave. The more oblique angle does offer a somewhat closer shave, but at the risk of nicks and cuts. Since men's facial hair tends to be thicker than women's leg hair, this trade-off is often worth it for men.</p> <p>Finally, a woman's legs are <a href="http://www.cosmopolitan.com/style-beauty/beauty/how-to/a9827/women-use-mens-razor-venus-110311/" target="_blank">18 times the surface area of a man's face</a>, which explains one more big difference between the two types of razors. Women's razors are more likely to have a larger head, including a &quot;guide bar&quot; which helps to position the hairs properly, and often includes some sort of moisturizing strip. These designs help to prevent cuts when you are shaving quickly, and make it easier to shave longer hair. Since women often go some time between shaves &mdash; unlike men who will often shave daily or several times a week &mdash; this helps make her shave smoother than what she would get with a men's razor.</p> <h3>The verdict</h3> <p>If women are willing to spend the extra money, women's razors can help them get a quicker and more convenient shave with fewer nicks and cuts. If women would prefer to spend a little less money and are willing to take a little more time with shaving, men's razors will work perfectly well. And for men with extremely sensitive skin, a woman's razor might be a little more work to use because of the angle and handle contour, but it may be worth it to cut down on nicks and razor burn.</p> <p>As for the shaving cream you use to get a nice smooth shave &mdash; there is absolutely no difference between men's and women's products, other than scent and price. So feel free to buy whatever's cheapest or smells the best.</p> <h2>Hair products</h2> <p>Though everything from shampoo and conditioner to hair spray is marketed according to gender, the biggest concern when it comes to your hair care should be the texture of your hair and your hair cut. Women's hair care products often have additional ingredients geared toward mitigating or accentuating texture issues &mdash; such as frizz control or curl enhancer. You are also more likely to find color care products among women's hair care lines, which help to protect dyed hair.</p> <p>Men's hair care products, on the other hand, generally focus on nothing more than dandruff or oily hair problems. Since men often keep their hair short, the texture of their hair does not matter as much. There are fewer hair care choices for men, and they tend to have different scents and cost a little less than women's products.</p> <h3>The verdict</h3> <p>Women's hair care products are not substantially different from men's products, other than the fact that it is easier to find a product for women that specifically addresses whatever hair care need you may have. Men with long hair or dyed hair may find that women's hair care products work better for them.</p> <h2>Skin care products</h2> <p>Men and women have biological differences in their skin. To start, men's skin is <a href="http://beyouthful.net/are-mens-anti-aging-skincare-products-different-to-products-aimed-at-women/" target="_blank">25 percent thicker than women's skin</a>. In addition, the sebaceous glands, which secrete sebum (the oily substance that leads to the dreaded &quot;shine&quot;) are more active in men than in women, meaning men have oilier skin than women. Finally, men's skin has a higher density of collagen and elastin proteins than women's skin. Those proteins help keep skin smooth and supple.</p> <p>These differences mean that men's skin care products can use somewhat <a href="http://stylecaster.com/beauty/whats-the-difference-between-womens-and-mens-products/" target="_blank">harsher detergents</a>, because the result will be less drying of men's skin than it would be for women's skin.</p> <p>The differences in men's and women's skin also helps to explain the existence of all-in-one shampoo-and-soap combinations that are marketed to men. These products work pretty well for men because of their oilier skin, and marketers are able to sell the idea of a single, no-nonsense product.</p> <h3>The verdict</h3> <p>As with hair care products, the biggest consideration when you are buying a skin care product should be your unique skin needs. If you are a woman with oily skin, a soap or moisturizer that is made for oily skin will probably work for you, whether the packaging is pink or blue. Similarly, someone with dry skin or sensitive skin should find products that meet that need, rather than focus solely on whether the product is specifically marketed to men or women.</p> <p>However, because there are real differences between men's skin and women's skin, many women may find that general skin care products that are produced and marketed for women do a better job of protecting their skin.</p> <p>It's also important to note that men's products are more likely to be unscented, even though women's skin tends to be more <a href="http://health.howstuffworks.com/skin-care/men/moisturizing-tips/mens-moisturizers-vs-womens-moisturizers.htm" target="_blank">sensitive to the kind of irritation that fragrance causes</a>.</p> <h2>Over-the-counter medication</h2> <p>Roam the aisles of your local pharmacy, and you'll find gendered versions of vitamins, painkillers, and other over-the-counter medication. Some of these products are genuinely different, while others are exactly the same in different-colored boxes.</p> <p>While vitamin formulations tend to be basically the same between men and women, the National Institutes of Health recommends that premenopausal women take more than <a href="http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-and-supplements/answers-nutrients/answers-multivitamin-gender" target="_blank">twice as much iron as men</a>, because menstruation increases the need for iron. While taking a vitamin not formulated for you will not seriously harm you, the effects do add up &mdash; and taking too much iron, for instance, can leave potentially dangerous deposits in your organs. That being said, the majority of young and healthy people who are getting adequate nutrition probably do not need to take a daily vitamin at all, unless they are dealing with a specific deficiency.</p> <p>As for the other types of medications that are offered in gendered versions, there can often be a good reason for women to choose the women's formulation over the general formula or men's formula. For instance, women's painkillers are often <a href="http://www.livestrong.com/article/24691-midol/" target="_blank">formulated to specifically help with the cramps and bloating</a> associated with menstruation, which can help provide better relief than a general painkiller.</p> <p>However, some gendered over-the-counter medications are simply a difference in marketing. For instance, laxatives that are geared toward women have the <a href="https://thespanofmyhips.wordpress.com/2014/10/20/needlessly-gendered-products-laxatives/" target="_blank">exact same active ingredients as the general version</a>. While women's laxatives are marketed as being gentler on the stomach, they are no different from the gentle formula offered in the other box &mdash; only the inactive ingredients (i.e., the things that account for the bulk and color of the medication) differ.</p> <h3>The verdict</h3> <p>When it comes to over-the-counter medications, all consumers need to read the active ingredients to know what they are getting. In some cases, the active ingredients are different between products marketed to men and those marketed to women. That's when it makes sense to buy the product that is made for you. But when the active ingredients are the same, it doesn't matter which one you choose.</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/emily-guy-birken">Emily Guy Birken</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/4-times-it-makes-sense-to-buy-the-gendered-product">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

Fortunately, you can rejuvenate your skin from home at an affordable price, in just a short period of time, with at-home peels.</p> <h2>What Are Face Peels?</h2> <p>Facial peels can exfoliate dead skin so that the outer layer of dead skin peels off.

The new skin is left brighter, smoother, softer, and less wrinkled than the old skin.</p> <p>Modern living can take a toll on your skin. Fortunately, at-home facial peels can help reverse the damage. They can effectively treat, even skin tone, minimize pores, and eliminate or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and scars.

That&rsquo;s because activated charcoal is a powerful ingredient that draws out and traps toxins, bacteria, and impurities like a magnet. Charcoal scrubs can detoxify and re-energize your complexion, deep clean your skin, shrink enlarged pores, and leave you with clear, soft, glowing skin.</p> <h2>What Is a Charcoal Scrub?</h2> <p>Charcoal scrubs are facial skincare products that use the power of activated charcoal to remove dirt, oil, toxins, bacteria, blackheads, and impurities deep in the pores. They are ideal for oily or acne-prone skin. For better results, pay special attention to the T-zone, sides of the face, and blackheads on the nose. For even better results, consider also adding a charcoal mask, like the <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/the-5-best-facial-masks">Freeman Facial Charcoal and Black Sugar Polish Mask</a>, to your skincare regimen.</p> <h2>Top 5 Charcoal Scrubs</h2> <h3>Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser</h3> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/2fpRtCn"><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/u5171/biore_0.jpg" width="83" height="245" align="right" alt="" /></a>If you like Biore pore strips, you&rsquo;ll love the <a href="http://amzn.to/2fpRtCn">Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser</a>.

It also has a minty cool tingle to refresh the skin.</p> <p>This potent cleanser is ideal for people dealing with oily skin, blackheads, and acne. The skin purifying oil-free formula can be harsh and drying, so it&rsquo;s probably not appropriate for dry or sensitive skin. It is recommended by Refinery29, Total Beauty, and Real Simple. It also has outstanding online reviews. The highly reviewed <a href="http://amzn.to/2gC6NAN">Biore Charcoal Pore Minimizer</a> is also recommended by Allure.</p> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/2fpRtCn"><em>Currently $5.82 on Amazon</em></a></p> <h3>SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub</h3> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/2gmTrFv"><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/u5171/garnier_3.jpg" width="117" height="245" align="right" alt="" /></a>The <a href="http://amzn.to/2gmTrFv">SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub</a> has microbeads to help exfoliate and deep clean the skin, clear complexion, tighten pores, and target blackheads.

And it turns out, <a href="http://money.usnews.com/money/personal-finance/articles/2016-02-17/the-pink-tax-why-womens-products-often-cost-more">women pay a &quot;pink tax&quot;</a> on items that are marketed for them. Also, products made and marketed to women are higher priced and sometimes not as well made. All of this <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/5-financial-obstacles-that-are-especially-tough-for-women">makes women begin to see red</a>.</p> <p>In football, they say the best defense is a good offense, and the same can be said when shopping for the best prices. With a calculator as your playbook, here's how you avoid paying the pink tax and save money in the process.</p> <h2>On Toiletries</h2> <p>What is the difference between a three-blade pink razor and a three-blade blue razor? It's not a trick question, but when you see the difference in price, you will feel like you've been pranked. Price is the only difference in gender-based razors. Some razors may offer moisture strips and an extra blade, but you might save more by spending your money on the blue razors and a moisturizing lotion. If you use a women's shaving cream, compare that price with the price of an unscented men's shaving cream.</p> <p>Don't put your calculator away just yet. Wander over to the shampoo and conditioner aisle and compare prices and sizes of shampoos marketed for women and shampoo for men. Often the biggest difference between the two, apart from the cost and size of bottle, is the fragrance. You're going to wash shampoo out and possibly use a conditioner, so is a fragrance really worth the higher cost?</p> <p>Apart from items specifically marketed to menstruating women, <a href="http://www.12news.com/mb/money/business/consumer/call-12-for-action/the-pink-tax-and-how-to-avoid-it/45021187">many toiletries made for men</a> are less expensive, come in larger quantities, and are available in unscented versions that could be used by women &mdash; including deodorant. Simply compare prices and quantity. Your time spent investigating will be well worth it.</p> <h2>On Hair Care</h2> <p>Women are quickly discovering the benefits and savings in visiting the neighborhood barbershop for a haircut instead of a higher priced, fancier hair salon. Most barbershops can easily cut short hair. Check with your selected shop if you have long hair. The barbershop may or may not do styling and colors, but for a quick trim or new bob, you might be surprised.</p> <h2>On Clothing</h2> <p>Women's clothing may require less fabric than men's clothing &mdash; jeans, for example &mdash; but <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/101-ways-to-save-money-on-clothes">they cost a great deal more</a>. If you're handy with a sewing machine or know a good seamstress, you can have most men's clothing tailored to fit and still save money.</p> <h2>On Car Maintenance</h2> <p>It's financially wise for women to learn how to <a href="https://blog.cjponyparts.com/repair-or-replace-infographic/">perform basic car maintenance</a> and emergency repairs like changing a flat tire, but it also gives women the knowledge to know when they are being overcharged at a repair shop. Many technical schools offer classes in basic car maintenance and repair.</p> <p>Knowledge is power, not only when it comes to car repairs, but also in real estate, mortgages, and buying or leasing vehicles. The more you know, the smarter your choices and decisions will be, especially when it comes to avoiding a pink tax.</p> <p><em>Where else can women avoid the unfair &quot;pink tax?&quot; Share with us!</em></p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/anum-yoon">Anum Yoon</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/4-ways-women-can-avoid-paying-the-pink-tax">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

It may take some time and experimentation to find the perfect mask for your skin, but we&rsquo;ve found some of the best masks on the market to get you started.</p> <h2>What Is a Facial Mask?</h2> <p>A facial mask is a skin care treatment that can hydrate the skin, remove excess oil and impurities, heal blemishes, reduce the appearance of pores, detoxify the skin, and provide anti-aging benefits. There are various types of masks available, including clay, cream, gel, and sheet masks. Depending on the mask you choose, they may tighten, tone, hydrate, nourish, calm, soothe, brighten, refresh, and rejuvenate the skin.</p> <p>Facial masks should be used after cleansing and before toner, serum, moisturizer, sunscreen, and makeup. Using a facial mask on a weekly basis can help you maintain beautiful skin, without having to spend the time, money, or effort on a professional spa facial.

According to Allure, more than one third of beauty mavens are dissatisfied with their tweezers. That&rsquo;s why we&rsquo;ve provided a list of some of the very best tweezers out there. And you&rsquo;ll need them, as most people keep a pair of tweezers in their makeup kit, first aid kit, and even in their car for those little everyday emergencies.</p> <h2>What Are Tweezers?</h2> <p>Tweezers are a small pincer-like device that can be used for a range of activities, including plucking hairs from the eyebrows and face. They are made of two narrow pieces of metal, joined at one end and open at the other. They are usually held between the thumb and index finger for precision tweezing and plucking. There are various types of tweezers available, including slanted tip, pointed tip, fine tip, square tip, and pointed-slant tip.</p> <p>Tweezers can be used for more than just tweezing your eyebrows; they are great for removing splinters, applying false eyelashes, fixing tangled jewelry, picking up small objects, and so much more. For best results, tweeze after the shower, when the pores are open and relaxed. Make sure to pluck at the root, in the direction of hair growth, following the brow&rsquo;s natural arch. You can also put tweezers in the freezer before plucking, so the cold metal can gently numb the skin and reduce plucking pain. It&rsquo;s also important to clean your tweezers with rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball after every use.</p> <h2>Top 5 Tweezers</h2> <h3>Tweezerman Stainless Steel Slant Tweezer</h3> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/29KQI7M"><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/u5171/tweezerman.jpg" width="245" height="34" align="right" alt="" /></a>The best-selling, award-winning <a href="http://amzn.to/29KQI7M">Tweezerman Stainless Steel Slant Tweezers</a> have been recommended by professional makeup artists, celebrities, and models for more than 30 years.
