Which Skincare Products Should I Be Investing In?

Good skin care does not always need to break the bank. Some of the best products on the market are also some of the cheapest. We are shown so many products through commercials and advertising that it can be difficult to know exactly what we should be spending our money on. It’s never too late to start investing in your skin care and start a new regime. Here’s a guide to help you decide what products you should invest in or not.

Which Skincare Products Should I Be Investing In?

Serums you should definitely invest in. They are the most concentrated product currently on the market and do remarkable things to your skin. Anti ageing is one of them by providing your skin with plenty of moisture. Serums target specific skin issues and can cater to your individual needs. Ask for samples from beauty counters and read reviews online to find a top quality one that works. Brands such as Clarin have a wonderful selection of serums and other anti-aging creams for women. Take a look now.

Moisturizers you can save on. It’s still a good idea to use moisturisers to keep your skin hydrated, but you needn’t choose an expensive product. Serums are the products that give your skin the real added moisture,  just use your moisturizer as an additional extra. Save your money and go for a cheaper option.

Exfoliators are another investment item. Look for one that is high quality but gentle on your skin. Avoid ones that contain large granules as these could potentially scratch and damage the outer layer of your skin. The larger granules will not necessarily mean a better quality product, so look for finer granules instead. Exfoliating your skin will remove dead skin cells and make your face appear smoother and fresh, giving you a youthful glow. It’s definitely worth investing in a continually good product to maintain these results.

Face masks can be a major save item for your bank balance. There are so many product options to treat particular skin issues by exfoliating, moisturising or detoxifying. Their prices can vary dramatically so do your research to find the right one. If you have constantly dry skin find out what other people are using by reading online reviews. Word of mouth is a great way of finding products that work and suit your budget. Saving money by making your own face masks is a fun way of saving money and looking after your skin. There are plenty of recipes for you to use online, using inexpensive items such as oats and avocados. Just because they are home made does not mean they are not as good as store bought products. The natural ingredients may even be more gentle and kinder to your skin.

Investing in high-quality products will be one of the best decisions you will make. Knowing which products are worth investing in is the first step to a great skincare regime. Save those pennies on useless products and get your skin looking wonderful for years to come.

Stella and Dot’s Layering Necklace

Necklace layering can create such a cool-yet-classy look. But it can sometimes be tricky as the individual strands can get tangled, not be the right length, etc. This is why I love this necklace from Stella & Dot. It’s their striking Relic Statement Necklace. You can wear it long and dramatic or short and shiny as it comes with two extenders for maximum length and versatility. Each layer includes hand-strung semi-precious beads giving you a laid-back layered look all in one necklace. Love. It. 

Shop the look at Stella & Dot to see all the different ways you make a statement with this necklace.
