Skincare is easily one of the most therapeutic routines one can incorporate into their life, but from what we see influencers using, and everything available online, is skincare supposed to be this expensive? Is it necessary to have a long skin routine just to keep your skin healthy and happy? The answer is no, skin care is not supposed to be expensive, or complicated. Keeping your skin healthy doesn’t mean emptying your pockets. So, here are a few ways to save money if you love skincare.
Keep your routine simple
Your skincare routine doesn’t have to be too complicated, unless you have specific skin concerns and need specific products to maintain your skin’s health. Otherwise, simply using a cleanser, moisturizer, and a sunscreen should be enough to get you going for the day. These essentials will keep your skin hydrated and healthy, and they aren’t even that expensive. Getting started with these basics is sure to keep your skin and you wallet happy.
Compare prices and plan your purchases
Different websites online offer varying prices for the same products, and it is also possible for you to get those products for cheaper in the local market. So make sure you compare prices across all platforms and plan your purchases accordingly so that you know how much you’re spending on what and whether it is worth it or not.
Consult a dermatologist
Consulting a doctor for specific skin concerns is much more affordable and better for your skin than any viral product used by influencers online. The key is to know and understand your skin, and you can do so by consulting a professional so that you know what your skin needs, and how you can keep it healthy and happy.
Keep an eye out for sales and offers
There are usually huge discount during the festive season, and also during Black Friday, so make sure you make the most out of these! Offers like these don’t come around often, and when they do, the discounts are absolutely amazing. Save promo codes or first time buyer discounts and use them at checkouts.
Wishlist products instead of buying impulsively
See something you love but it is currently a little over your budget? Don’t make that impulsive decision, and wish-list the item instead. This will help you track the price trajectory (whether it’s going up or down) and you could also save it to buy it at the next sale, instead of spending and extra amount of money right now.
These are only a few of the many ways to save money while also caring for your skin!
