Stretch You Skin Care Dollars Further

March 15, 2017 - 5:28pm

Everyone wants to save money. Good quality skincare products are expensive but they don’t have to be costly.

Here are some simple tips to help your skincare dollars go further.

Commercials lead us to believe that we have to goop stuff on. I actually call this ‘scooping and gooping’ and I see the suggestions on TV all the time. Toothpaste is guilty; the ad will show a big, glistening S shaped swoosh on a toothbrush. It looks like half a teaspoon! Too much.

Skincare ads do this as well. Two slender, elegantly shaped, smooth skinned fingers reach into a pot of skincare and scoop out a dollop. That dollop is enough skincare for four faces.

End the scoop and goop. With skincare products, less is more.

Remember to use wet finger tips any time that you apply something to your skin. You’ll get way better slip, slide and glide. You’ll instantly use less and it’ll go way further.

Studies have shown that damp skin absorbs better than dry skin. Your skincare products become more effective.

What happens if you buy a skincare product and end up not liking how it performs on your face?

Use it up on the tops of your hands.

The skin there is different than your face. Often, our hands find things much more agreeable than our face does. And our hands age just as much as our faces. You’ll get your money out of your product and you’ll be improving the health and beauty of your hard working, under loved hands.

If you aren’t happy with your existing skincare line, feel free to give me a call. We can do a product consultation and there is no charge for this. I can send you home with samples so you can try before you buy. Or we can have some fun test driving skincare products together, with no obligation to you.
