Skin Care on a budget

  • When building a skin care routine, it’s important to remember that products don’t need to be expensive to be effective. Adopting a simple, three-step approach that includes cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting your skin can help reduce skin care costs while keeping your skin healthy.
  • follow these tips for your skin and savings:
    • Cleanse your skinbefore applying skin care products and before going to bed. A gentle cleanser removes dirt, oil, and debris, and helps prevent clogged pores and breakouts. To prevent irritation, limit face washing to twice a day and after sweating.
    • Get the most from your moisturizerby applying it to damp skin. Moisturizer traps water in your skin, helping it look brighter and younger. Remember to moisturize your face, body, and lips, even if you have oily skin.
    • Use sun protectionto help prevent wrinkles, age spots, and skin cancer. Whether you seek shade, wear sun-protective clothing, or apply sunscreen, sun protection is an important part of your daily skin care. Apply sunscreen to all skin not covered by clothing.
    • Consider using dual-function products, such as a moisturizer with sunscreen. Make sure the sunscreen is broad-spectrum and has an SPF of 30 or higher, and remember to reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating.
    • Read the label. Look for products for your skin type that say “non-comedogenic” or “won’t clog pores.”
    • Consider using petroleum jelly.This inexpensive product can have several uses, including moisturizing dry skin and nails and treating minor injuries.
