SAVE MONEY ON SKINCARE
While skincare is an investment, it sure can get expensive. Here are a few savvy tips on how to save money on skincare and at the same time get the most out of what you spend for.
Look for loyalty programs
Loyalty programs are a great way to save money on products and brands that you love and use frequently. Some brands offer insider discounts and give you benefits like a free mini product after X amount of purchase. The Blue Lagoon loyalty program, for example, is a great one to look into if you love natural and effective products that also offer a luxurious spa-like experience.
Spend less on certain products
Look into the products you use and group them into two: essentials and support. Consider opting for budget purchases on products that do not stay on your face for long, such as make-up remover and face wash. That way, you have more budget on products that have the most impact on your skin. Treatment products are an example.
Shop around and compare prices
It is worth taking a little extra time to window shop and compare prices to get the best deal. A product at one shop can even be up to 1.5 times more expensive than in other shops. It is prudent then that you either take a look online or window shop before purchasing. A loyalty program at a certain store may be worth the cost as compared to the benefits you will be getting.
Consider DIY / homemade alternatives
You can DIY some skincare products, like cuticle oil, a body scrub, and a lip scrub. Consider the skincare ingredients that you find effective for you and look for DIYs for these products to save some money.
Look for multi-purpose products
A multi-purpose product helps you get more bang for your buck since it can do more than just one thing! Just keep in mind how often you use it. A tinted moisturizer with sunscreen, for example, is an excellent multi-purpose product. It can offer you the sunscreen coverage you need and at the same time moisturize your skin.
Some of the products worth investing in are moisturizers and serums because they are worn for a long time and give high-impact benefits to the skin. As you owe it to yourself to take care of your skin, you don’t need to hurt your pocket for each skincare product purchase. Be wise and practical. Consider these savvy tips and get the most out of your investment.
