Ways to Save on your skincare in Central Georgia

Here are six tips on how you can save money on your skin care routine.

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — People strive to have good hygiene every day. From brushing your teeth to washing your face. If you’re eager to have a skincare routine but don’t know where to start, here are 6 tips to improve your everyday skincare routine.

1. Don’t waste product

Many cleansers, moisturizers, and cream products recommend a pea to dime size amount of product. If you buy a big jar or tube of a skin product, you’ll run the risk of running out sooner and having to buy more. Hailey Haywood, master cosmetologist at Spa 22 in Warner Robins says you don’t need too much. 

“Just depending on your skin type, I think skin is a lot of trial and error so you definitely want to see what works best for you, but you aren’t going to want to overload your face with product. And in the long run that saves you money.,” Haywood said.

2. Go with generic body wash

You don’t have to buy the name brand that can cost almost $15. They all lather, make you smell nice, and hydrate the skin. However, brands like Sauve can be found at Walmart for around $3.

3. Use petroleum jelly

Maybe you’ve heard of Vaseline but you can use it for dry skin and small cuts. It has many uses like treating diaper rashes, preventing chaffing, and rehydrating nails.

4. Try the three-step approach

Many skin care routines include a cleanser, an exfoliant, a serum, a spot treatment, an eye cream, a toner, a moisturizer, and a protectant. However, the American Academy of Dermatology suggests having a cleanser, moisturizer, and protectant. Sarah Le’Valley says you can go to a two-step which involves a cleanser and moisturizer.

5. Try a dual moisturizer

After using a moisturizer, sunscreen is the final step. But they do make sunscreen and moisturizers in one. It will say on the label it has SPF in it. 

6. Sample sizes

Le’Valley and Haywood agree skincare is trial and error but if you go to Spa22 or Walmart, you can find sample sizes of skin care products. A starter pack of skin care products can help you figure out what you like or dislike.
