Skincare Routine: The Ultimate 5 Step Saving Guide
Your face is constantly going through changes caused by aging, eating habits, and weather conditions. The following is a quick skincare routine cheat sheet to guide you to the right, affordable skincare products to keep your face healthy, glowing and vibrant:
1. Start from within
Aside from topical products, food and vitamin intake play a significant role in your skincare routine. Taking Vitamins A, C and E are very beneficial to your skin’s appearance and anti-aging properties. Additionally, by avoiding greasy foods that are full of additives and preservatives, you can eliminate many of the oils that cause your skin to break out or age faster than normal. Drink lots of water to flush out the toxins in your body and keep your skin radiantly glowing.
2. Free online skin consultation
What good are skincare routine products if they don’t work for your skin type? Complete Murad’s (no cost) 4-question Personalized Skincare Evaluation to find out what type of skin you have, and which products are best for you.
3. Buy ONLY what you need
Use the exam’s result as a roadmap to help you purchase what you need. You don’t necessarily have to stick to Murad products, and you can venture off and use brands that you are comfortable with, as long as you are using products that are designed for your skin type.
4. Create a budget and experiment
Skincare routine products can get really expensive depending on the maker and complexity of ingredients. Before you start blowing your money, set a budget you are comfortable spending for the year. Divide the amount to purchase the basics, and whatever’s left anything additional left, on experimenting advanced treatments for your skin type. It may take testing out several products, but you will eventually find ones that work better than others without breaking the bank. If you don’t have the time to experiment on your own, you can try a monthly box subscription and get beauty products delivered to your doorstep for a flat fee each month. Think of it like a magazine subscription, with beauty products instead. There are plenty of them out there but a few of my favorites are Birchbox ($10 per month), Glossybox ($21 per month), and Beautyfix.com ($49.99 per box).
5. Bundle to save
Bundling is your best friend when it comes to saving on skincare products. There are several reputable brand names that have high-quality products at a reasonable price. Most of them offer skincare kits for a discounted bundle price that are usually 5-10% less expensive than purchasing the items individually. Choose your favorite skincare retailer and look for their “gifts, sets, or kits” section to find their discounted package priced.
