Finding the right skincare product for you is often difficult and at times frustrating when the item doesn’t work as intended. However, we’ve come up with a few tips to help narrow down the search.
Finding the right skincare product for your skin is often as hard as trying to find the right hair shampoo. It can often be considered a waste of money if you buy something that doesn’t work for you. That’s why we’re here to help! We’ve put together a list of five tips that might help you fast track finding the right product for you.
Tip #1: Know Your Skin Type
The first tip we’re going to give is probably the most important. You need to know your skin type. We personally have oily skin and a touch of dry too meaning we have combination skin. If you’re not sure, you might want to consult a skin specialist. If you cannot be bothered, we would suggest using combination skin products or ones that say they’re for all skin types.
Tip #2: Check The Label For What Skin Types The Product Caters For
When you’re the skincare product section of your local chemist or supermarket, it’s super important you check the label. Now, you’re probably asking why. Well, the reason for it because you don’t want to buy the wrong product. If yo have combination skin, buy a skincare product made for that skin type and so on.
Tip #3: Don’t Buy Full Priced Products
Skincare products can often be expensive depending on the brand. However, you might need to crunch the numbers before you go out and buy. When you go to the supermarket and go down the beauty aisle, check to see if there’s a discount on your ideal skincare product. If there is, buy it there and then. If you wait and then go back a week later, it might not be sale again for a while.
Tip #4: It’s Best To Buy Large Products But Only When They’re Discounted
Even the smallest product can be expensive so we recommend you buy large products because the last longer. However, you need to be careful because the bigger the product, the more expansive it is. For example a large bottle of Garnier Micellar Water is about $20 at the supermarket. Buy it on sale when there’s a discount. You save money and that way and you also get more use from your product
Tip #5: Use Cheap Brands
If you’re trying to limit yourself or are on a budge, we recommend using the supermarket brands. Now, a lot of beauty influencers might caution you against this, but they shouldn’t dictate what skincare products you use. It should be up to the consumer to give an item a try.
One example of supermarket brand skincare products you can try is the one from Aldi. Their range might not be huge, but they’ve combined their skincare product brand with their makeup one.
